Starring: Pakhi, John Abraham, R. Madhavan
Directed by Abbas Tyrewala
Jhootha Hi Sahi is about a group of friends who seem be living surprisingly well selling books from a small shop called ‘Kaagaz Ke Phool’, which, incidentally, has a poster proclaiming: “We Don’t Do Deepak Chopra”. The shop’s name and the poster are about the only truly witty elements in the entire film. Abbas Tyrewala is a talented writer who has done sharp dialogues for films like Munnabhai MBBS and Main Hoon Na. Jhootha Hi Sahi disappoints primarily because it lacks the sparkle one associates with his writing. In fact, it gets startlingly flaccid and boring. Instead of making you feel for the characters, JHS leaves you disengaged and disinterested.
