Rishi Kapoor’s final film Sharmaji Namkeen is out on Amazon Prime Video on 31st March, 2022.
The film is an ode to the actor known for bringing spark and spontaneity to his roles.
Of course the film Sharmaji Namkeen isn’t just about Rishi Kapoor but another actor who shared the same role after Rishi Kapoor’s demise. Paresh Rawal has done a fine job of donning the Rishi’a avatar with his signature pullover and an overused briefcase.
The film Sharmaji Namkeen elicits suppressed chuckles where audiences are welcomed to glide along gentlyas Rishi Kapoor successfully, for one last time, blends the comic with the dramatic without breaking a sweat.
Produced by Excel Entertainment and MacGuffin Pictures, the film opens with an emotionally resonant introduction by Ranbir Kapoor putting Paresh Rawal’s participation in the project in context as well as underscoring the reasons why this film simply had to see the light of day.
With its low-key, slice-of-life drama played excellently by supporting cast Juhi Chawla, Satish Kaushik, Sheeba Chaddha, Ayesha Raza Mishra and Parmeet Sethi, the film is does justice to the memory of Rishi Kapoor as an actor who would never fail to come alive in front of a movie camera.
The film is being praised for the fact that nobody can play a Delhi dad quite as effectively and effortlessly as Rishi Kapoor could. The actor says in one scene: “I am what I am. Beyond an iota of doubt.”
