Dharam Sankat Mein is a 2015 Indian comedy film directed by Fuwad Khan. The film is produced by Sajjad Chunawala and Shariq Patel under the banners Viacom 18 Motion Pictures and Trigno Media. Set for a release on 10 April 2015, the film stars Paresh Rawal, Naseeruddin Shah, and Annu Kapoor. The film is an official remake of the 2010 British comedy film titled The Infidel.
It is the first time a Bollywood movie has 3 National Film Award and Filmfare Award winners in its main cast.
The film revolves around a Hindu man (Paresh Rawal) who goes through an identity crisis when he discovers he was adopted as a son in a Hindu family but was born in a Muslim family. The journey starts with finding his real father.
What’s Good: The quirky fillers that come every now and then to save you from the otherwise predictable plot. Dharampal’s learning lessons to become a Muslim are the only portions that will make you laugh and not ironically!
What’s Bad: The fact that this film is not named OMG 2. It’s tiring to watch social satires which target the same damn thing. Also, it seems Paresh Rawal has now become the face of such films, it won’t be long before audiences term him to be the ‘religious satire baba’!
Loo break: Second half is a good time!
Watch or Not?: Dharam Sankat Mein is passable. With a highly predictable plot, this film lets you down with its repetitive content. It fails to tickle your funny bone and also at serving you with meaningful full free content.
