MUMBAI: SaharaOne Television will premiere UTV Motion Pictures’ Khosla Ka Ghosla on 21 January at 11 am with a repeat at 8 pm.
Khosla Ka Ghosla is a sweet black comedy in the life of a dysfunctional Indian family and centers around the dream of every middle class man to own a house. The film set in Delhi, traces the trials and tribulations the Khosla family faces while trying to fulfill this dream.
Kamal Kishore Khosla (Anupam Kher), is a simple man by nature with simple desires. He always brings a smile on the most serious of situations. His only dream in life is to build his own home on a plot of land, which he intends to buy – a plot where he would build his small little ‘ghosla’, or nest. To his horror he realises that the plot he has paid for had already been booked by a land shark, Kishan Khurana (Boman Irani).
And this man is sure about the fact that the only way Khosla gets his ‘ghosla’ is if he pays up a large sum of money. Not only does Khosla sees his dream shattering but also sees his life savings being taken away by the land broker. All attempts at getting back his property fall on deaf ears. What’s more, Khosla’s dream of staying with his entire family of children and grandchildren in his dream home, now seems to be an impossible dream as his younger son decides to move to America.
A hilarious comedy, the film focuses on relationships, trust and togetherness. Dibakar Banerjee makes his directorial debut with this film which was screened at the Cannes Film Festival in 2006. The film also stars Ranveer Shorey, Parvin Dabbas, Tara Sharma, Vinay Pathak, Navin Nischol and Kiran Juneja amongst others.
