What happens when a young woman enters the life of a guy, who already has two wives?

Review: How much is too much? If you want an answer to that question, 'Carry on Deshpande' should suffice as a reference point.

The film revolves around an ad man named Shashi Deshpande (Shrotri) who is in constant company of girls. Shashi has two wives (Bane and Kadam) who are constantly suspicious of his activities. Shashi's flirtatious nature is on display and as if two wives weren't enough, the film introduces a third love interest in the form of Mallika (Naik). The moment Mallika enters the house, things take a different turn.

The film is aimed at being an entertainer and the premise is something that has been seen in many films before; Kapil Sharma's acting debut Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon being a recent example. It has the elements that go into making a masala film; item songs, loud acting, exaggerated situations and so on, but it lacks sense and logic. In trying to make a masala entertainer, Patkar goes overboard and the film treads into the crass territory frequently.

As mentioned earlier, the acting is loud. Shrotri is a good actor but is wasted here. Naik plays the seductress, again. Newcomer Kadam is at ease in front of the camera and Bane is alright. The combined acting effort too doesn't work well in salvaging the film.

For a film directed by Patkar and featuring Shrotri, both of whom are known for their comic timing, Carry on Deshpande is not even remotely the laugh riot it promises to be. At the most, it is a farcical comedy that borrows elements from films based around a similar theme. It has been made with a particular set of audience in mind and perhaps would also strike a chord with item-song enthusiasts.
