  •  Moviez Adda -Divya Solgama Rating-6
We live in the country where cinema, cricket and politics have been the most talked topics from the pan shop corner to the corporate meeting rooms. There have been innumerable films made on cinema and cricket, but when it comes to political satire there are very few or would rather say

  •  Komoi -Mohar Basu Rating-5
Quite on the lines of the classic Jaane Bhi Do Yaaron, this one is a modern day take which maintains its individuality despite being built around the same premise. In the last decade, there were a multiple films that has tried to ape the classic and of the ones I have watched, this one takes

  •  India Today -Rohit Khilnani Rating-4
Neither is Ekkees Toppon Ki Salaami unbearable, nor is it a good film by any standards; it's somewhere in between. Purushotam Joshi (Anupam Kher) is an honest BMC worker who operates a fogging machine on the streets of Mumbai keeping dangerous diseases like dengue and malaria away.

  •  Bollywood Hungama Rating-4
A little over three decades, there was one film made by the name of JAANE BHI DO YAARON, which went onto not just attain a 'cult status in Bollywood, but also give rise to a new 'genre' of filmmaking, about the hardships in the lives of common people but with a funny twist.

  •  CNN IBN -Rajeev Masand Rating-4
Buried beneath the farcical humor, melodramatic performances and manipulative tear-jerking in Ekkees Toppon Ki Salaami is a well-intentioned message movie about the value of honesty. The film is positioned as a satire about politics and corruption, and Rahil Qazi's script

  •  Times Of India -Renuka Vyavahare Rating-7
Ekkees Toppon Ki Salaami is a fitting tribute to the common man who still values his self-respect more than his pay cheque. Nearing his retirement, living in a modest chawl in Mumbai, Purushottam Narayan Joshi (Anupam Kher) serves the BMC diligently as a jamadar for 37 years of his life.

  •  Mid Day -Shakti Shetty Rating-7
It's not every week that we are treated with an original story. More often than not, patches of a tried-and-tested plot are borrowed for a film’s sake. Which pretty much explains why the lack of an original yarn is fueling the rise of remakes and sequels in Bollywood. Which also explains

  •  Sify -Sonia Chopra Rating-7
As you may know, the film's title refers to the 21-gun salute reserved for important occasions and for military and state funerals. Our humble BMC worker Purushotam Joshi (Anupam Kher) who prides himself on his honesty has been yearning for "samman" (respect) all his life.

  •  Glamsham -Martin D'Souza Rating-6
In life, they never realized the value of their father and his honest approach. In death, the sons are stunned when they see the love pouring in for their dead father, and the praises they hear for his honesty. But the funny part is, when alive, Purshottam Narayan Joshi (Anupam Kher)

  •  Deccan Chronicle -Kaushani Banerjee Rating-3
Puroshottam Joshi (Anupam Kher) is an honest BMC worker who is also the epitome of honesty and goodness. His two sons Subhash (Divyendu Sharma) and Shekhar (Manu Rishi) are loud and corrupt and embody everything that is opposite of what he believes in. Respect eluded Joshi

  •  Book My Show -Samiya Dinware Rating-6
Ekkees Toppon Ki Salaami is a political satire about political leaders who continue to prevail in society as money-making termites. The film enlightens us about the difficulties in the life of a common man and through its light-hearted pace, entertains us. The movie is directed by Ravindra

  •  Daily Bhaskar Rating-4
The story revolves around Purushottam Joshi (Anupam Kher) who is a retired government official. Joshi has two sons Shekhar (Manu Rishi) and Subhash (Divyendu Sharma) who feel that their father never received the kind of appreciation that he should have, for his honesty

  •  Mumbai Mirror -Rahul Desai Rating-4
One more in the epidemic of 'Ode to common man' films, Ekkees Toppon Ki Salaami is the commoner in a genre dominated by Rajkumar Hirani. The story is constructed as a loud comedy of errors, and revolves around two sons (Sharma, Rishi) who want to give their dead Gandhian father (Kher)
