Synopsis: A businessman in Melbourne is worried about the future of his spoiled and irresponsible sons Robby and Rolly. He strikes a deal by throwing the brats out of his house sending them to Punjab so that they can understand the realities of life and importance of their roots and heritage. Their servant in Punjab poses as the owner of their house creating misunderstandings and situations to send them back. Over time, they make a deal helping them to achieve their task assigned by their dad but the way they achieve the task brings its own fun and fresh troubles.
Script Analysis: Dheeraj Rattan is back at what he does best, writing scripts and that too good ones. The story here begins from Melbourne and travels all the way to Jalandhar. Its fun and frolic all throughout the way. The makers have taken care of all the possible requirements of the audience and made it a ‘Comic Masala Entertainer’.
The Screenplay is written nicely and the length of the film is just over 2 hours, which is a positive for the film. Even the dialogues have been pretty well written and all the characters had some or the other descent dialogues. The only drawback was that some comic scenes had gone overboard where the audiences didn’t laugh much, but when you see the overall product; such small errors can be ignored.
Direction and Music: Music by Yo Yo Honey Singh is good and matches the requirements of the film. But still there was the lack of that one song which sells the film. Overall, songs like Akhiyan Ch Rabb, Baby This Baby That and the title track are my picks from the album.
Amit Prasher makes his debut as a director with this film after assisting Navaniat Singh on a few Blockbusters. Truly speaking he is a people’s director. He knows what the audience wants to be entertained in today’s busy and stressful times. He has taken full care of that.
Star Performances: This one being a comic caper my main emphasis is laid on the comic timings of the actors. Amrinder Gill has some good comic timing and has shown improvement as an actor. Honey Singh was just being himself, natural like the way he is in his videos; stylish and classy. Mandy Thakkar was all right. Wamiqa Gabbi makes a confident debut; she has a long future if she takes right steps as an actress like the choice of films in the future.
Show stealers once again were Binnu Dhillon, Mukesh Vohra and Karamjit Anmol. Superb comic timing and expression by all the 3 stars. B.N. Sharma was effective in a very small role towards the end. Harsh Kataria makes a confident debut as an actor.
After all 'Tu mera 22 mein tera 22' is a laugh riot and thoroughly enjoyable and very funny film. Few comic sequences have gone over board but are still enjoyable. A good and clean film to watch with family this weekend. comedy in this film is awsome.
ratings : 3.5 from 5 stars
