Rahul Aggarwal directs and acts in one of the year's most refreshing comedies. 'Na Ghar Ke Na Ghaat Ke' is a celebration of old school Bollywood movies, a celebration of the cultural diversity in India, and a celebration of the common family. Rarely has culture clash been depicted so realistically yet with a sharp humour (in this case the clash is between a Bihari villager and a Bombayan city slicker). The linguistic and traditional barriers have been hilariously depicted here. The movie does have a message and even though at some point the delivery of it is done with an in your face approach, the comedy makes up for that.
Om Puri and Neena Kulkarni are excellent as the proud Bihari couple. Ravi Kishan is hilarious as the Bombayan slicker while Paresh Rawal is in his usual element (that's not a bad thing in this case). Rahul Aggarwal and Narayani Shastri share great chemistry and are a convincing pair on screen. They hold their own against theit more experienced costars.
'Na Ghar Ke Na Ghaat Ke' is a sincere little film and it's pleasing to see that there still are filmmakers today in India making movies about life in India. Aggarwal's film is refreshing, sincere and funny as hell.
