Total Siyapaa is an upcoming Hindi romantic comedy film directed by E. Nivas and written by writer of much-acclaimed films A Wednesday and Special 26 Neeraj Pandey.
Film stars Chashme Baddoor, Mere Brother Ki Dulhan and Tere Bin Laden famed Ali Zafar and Vicky Donor famed Yami Gautam in lead roles. Veteran actor Anupam Kher and his real life wife and Veteran actress Kiron Kher are appearing together for the first time in a movie.
Aman (Ali Zafar), who is in London, hopes to marry Asha (Yami Gautam), an Indian girl, also in London. He visits her parents' house to seek their permission to marry her. However, his plans to impress the family start failing when they discover that he is a Pakistani. Total Siyapaa (Total Chaos) is about a series of unfortunate events that befall a good-hearted but hapless Pakistani boy while visiting his girlfriend's parents, leading to some of the funniest, chaotic and outrageous situations.
I've seen the trailer in cinemas, and it looks like a slapstick romantic comedy, set in London, built around the prejudices that Indians and Pakistanis have about each other. In something of a filmithon this weekend, MrsB are intending to see this, Queen, and Gulab Gang if we can fit them all in. I'll report back if we manage to see it.
Well we saw the first half, but then we had some paint drying at home, and watching that was more appealing than the second half. This film is very weak indeed and cannot be recommended. It has the bones of a promising farce (taken from Seres Queridos, of which it is a remake), but there is no flesh on them. The script has no sharpness and no wit, and there's very little physical comedy to compensate. With the exception of Kirron Kher's mother, the characters have no depth, so there's nothing for any potential comedy element to get hold of except for a few tired stereotypes about Indians and Pakistanis. What you're left with is a Pakistani boy meeting a family of weirdos who don't like Pakistanis, who thinks he's killed his prospective father-in-law. Maybe it gets funny in the second half, but the signs were not promising.

dancelover: From the first such films thru the end of 1995, they needed lots of updating. Starting in Jan. 1996, someone else has been partially updating them, with Director, 3 Actors, confirmation they were in Kannadan, and sometimes Screenwriters.
