RekhaAtribute to the comeback of diva Rekha. Indra Kumar comes to give you a clean family entertainer that is partly about gender equality and also partly about the old world charms of the joint family. You have Indra Kumar far removed from the ‘Masti’ humour, the ‘Beta’ melodrama and the ‘Ishq’ violence. You have the talented Sharman Joshi and the representation of his daughter Shweta Kumar so if nothing the film would have nice songs, good locales and high level presentation. If only, these were true!!

‘Super Nani’ is a gone wrong effort. Half-hearted and over the board it is screaming virtues and vices about this family of successful businessman RK Bhatia ( Randhir Kapoor) who has a useless son (Rajesh Kumar ) and a screeching daughter-in-law (Shreya Narayan) who wants to be a film star. The family also has the matriarch in Bharati (Rekha) and the daughter Gargi (Anchal Diwedi). The entire family treat the sole sane element Bharati like dirt and she obliges to the hilt. All this is till the grandson of the family arrives in India from New York to do a short film on Indian heritage. He cannot accept grandma being treated like sh… He decides it is time to bring about a change in the family and uses the services of a funnily named guy (Anupam Kher).

Doormat turns Durga is what the rest of the nitwitted script is about. How each of the haughty members of the family are made to eat humble pie and realise the value of Maa Bharati is what the latest Indra Kumar film is all about.

No one in the film is normal, leave alone intelligent. The entire script is dated and has woefully outlived its shelf life or entertainment quotient. Randhir Kapoor looks lost. The gen next actors scream screech and are loud in unison and without cause. It is pathetic to see the talented Sharman Joshi doing this film with some mistaken notion about NRIs and their Hindi. You expect Rekha to carry the film on her shoulders. Either she is aging or the script is too burdensome for her yogic shoulders. She looks good and obviously carries herself with ease, in compare. Her tribute to the likes of Madhubala, Waheeda and Nargis falls flat. As does the film and her role as the grandma with a cause. There is no definite factor that warrants recommendation.

It has stay away written all over. Defy it to your detriment.
