Murari, a blabbermouth, is the cause of havoc in his village. As the title suggests, the 'mad gentleman' drives people insane. He is considered a local menace and villagers do their best to 'cure' him.
If the plot description doesn't explain it well enough, here's a reiteration of the same - it is by far one of most inane films ever made in Bollywood. Anyone who has the patience to survive this, deserves a gallantry award. When our hero - Murari makes his first entry, the whole village is seen avoiding him. The same point is driven home repeatedly, till it becomes a long running gag. He doesn't suffer from any particular mental disorder. Despite repeated suggestions, the villagers prefer taking him to a 'tantrik' than to a doctor.
There is a needless love/friendship track, when the protagonist falls in love with an American girl named Jenny. The romance is hardly a value-addition to the story. Besides the fact that the story is scattered, the main problem with it is that the characters seem far from real. From the word go, you are bored to care about any of them. Even Murari, the protagonist, is more annoying than affable. Even when the film reaches its climax and tilts in his favour, you are beyond caring.
The climax has a human twist which is hard to buy. Murari's 'madness' is redeemed by his noble work (that is best reserved for the film). But the most heart-breaking thing here is that actors par excellence are meted out unfortunate parts. You feel bad to associate a veteran actor like Asrani as a part of such a forgettable cast.
As you battle dreariness while watching the movie, it is hard to not ponder about the quality of cinema in our country. Has it really improved?
Murari The Mad Gentleman doesn't deserve to be called a film. It is an amateurish compilation of bad screenplay, terrible dialogues and dreadful performances. Due to the lack of better adjectives describe the movie, it would be strictly advisable if you give this revolting so-called-work-of-art, a miss.
This one is a disaster really. The script is a blob of confusing ideas and makes little sense. The dialogues career off course along the way. Asrani continues to use his ‘Sholay’ sound blasters to ‘stupid’ effect here. And the rest of the cast is quite indistinguishable from each other. The subplots patched on to the main storyline don’t make any sense either. Don’t know how people can throw away hard earned money on such trivial pursuits. or is it really hard-earned?
Murari(Sanjay Singh) an orphan is designated mad by the village folk and shunted out of all village gatherings. Yet he keeps butting into the village folks lives and causes them untold harm (that’s what they believe). Then one fine day he disappears and a Mr Moneybags comes in search of him and the village is stunned. Is it really Murari that the moneyed gentleman is seeking? and what about the big reveal when they all visit Murari’s abandoned haveli in the hopes of getting to the truth?
