Sulemani Keeda - Top Reviews

A tiny apartment, two roomies-men who still think they're boys- trying to write the next Hindi blockbuster, struggle to pay the rent, trying to score with the next cute girl. This may sound like a generalization, but it's a reasonably accurate representation of a large populace of film industry strugglers that stretches between Lokhandwala and Versova in Mumbai's Andheri West area

Sulemani Keeda review: Gives us a couple of struggling script-writers that makes us smile
Shubhra Gupta, Indian Express
A bittersweet combination of what’s ordinary and extraordinary
Rachit Gupta, Filmfare
Sulemani Keeda will strike your attention for being this fulgent watch which will seem like an Indie-version of Dil Chahta Hai, but Amit Masurkar’s love for cinema and films comes through in this film which takes observational comedy to another level
Mohar Basu, Koi Moi
There’s not much by way of a groundbreaking plot in debutant writer-director Amit Masurkar’s Sulemani Keeda, but this tale of two struggling screenwriters seeking a break in Bollywood feels surprisingly astute

It's lovely but narrow
Anupama Chopra, Hindustan Times
For a story that is not really novel, this movie would have been much more exciting with a wee bit more confidence and craziness. Nevertheless, it’s definitely worth one watch for a good laugh

The film opens with a sleepy eyed Dulal (Naveen Kasturia) blissfully peeing only to be interrupting by his girlfriend Guggu who breaks up with him over the phone

This urban, Indie film has the potential to impress its target audience.

Sulemani Keeda is an indie film full of humor, love, emotions and Bollywood. The film excels when it comes to the performances and dialogues, but the story lacks pace and loses its grip by the end. However, if you love indie films, then you must watch Sulemani Keeda with your friends.

As Sulemani Keeda puts forth the frustrations, woes and aspirations of aspiring screenwriters, it also makes fun of the industry. Masurkar poses the questions: Do you sell yourself out or

A fun take on growing up in Bollywood and a comforting reassurance that there is no easier way to success in India than in Hollywood, USA.

सुलेमानी कीड़ा सादगी से भरी फिल्म है, जिसके कुछ हिस्से आपको एंटरटेन करेंगे तो कुछ बोर। डायरेक्टर अमित वी मासुरकर ने अंत तक फिल्म की वास्तविकता को जीवित रखा है। फिल्म का पहला हिस्सा आपको रोमांचित करेगा, जिसमें कई दिलचस्प मोड़ आते हैं। पहले हाफ में.
“Sulemani Keeda”, a slacker comedy about two struggling writers in Bollywood, seems like an inside joke that only a few people are let in on. Produced on a shoe-string budget, it almost seems like the director is describing his own struggling days through the film. And while it might be an engaging story, most people may not be able to relate to it.The jokes, the conversations laced with profanity, and the relentless
This is their story, just padded with some caricature and prettiness.

All seems well till Dulal, who has just had a breakup, meets Ruma (Aditi Vasudev), who actually makes him question his choice to sell out.

A well-written slacker comedy made guerrilla-style
Sanjukta Sharma, Live Mint
An independent slacker comedy where writer director Masurkar explores the life of struggling screen writers who throng the Andheri suburb of Mumbai, it is an engaging character study of unknown creatures on the margins of the glamour industry. Bitten by the writer’s bug, they are looking for ways to sneak in. They meet the big people but will they give them their big break?

Sulemani Keeda is a delightful, unpretentious indie film, says Paloma Sharma.There are two kinds of people in Mumbai -- there are the filmi ones and the rest.Within this dubious section of the filmi ones, there are two further subdivisions -- the ones who live in the limelight and the rest who hover around it like flies buzzing over ripe fruit, trying to push their portfolio/mix tape/script to anyone who cares.Mainak (Mayank Tewari) and Dulal (Naveen Kasturia) are two such flies.
