Sankat City - Movie Reviews

A film that explores the seamier side of the city with a dose of black humour and comic-bookish characters.

Comedies today, can be segregated into two categories -- Brain-dead entertainers and intelligent comedies. Films like Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro, Bheja Fry and Sankat City fall in the latter category. Let''s be honest. Not all of us can think whacky or come up wi
