  •  Times of India -Madhureeta Mukherjee Rating-6
Actor Satish Kaushik's massive bare body - with a belly of colossal proportions - dunked in a mud-bath, is one of many horrific-hilarious moments in this socio-political satire that's inspired by a true incident. Here's how the tamasha unfolds. A taangewala (he's Hamid for Muslims

  •  Mid Day -Shubha Shetty Saha Rating-7
There is a dead body. The body belongs to Hamid, who was earlier Kishan, a Hindu who converted in order to get married to a Muslim woman (Tanvi Azmi). When alive, Hamid aka Kishan was a drunkard who lived with his wife and two grown up children. He perhaps led the most nondescript life,

At a time when our country is getting all geared up for the D-day [or should we say the E-day -- Election Day], the entertainment industry seems to be filled with dedications for the same. YOUNGISTAAN and BHOOTNATH RETURNS provided an interesting take on Indian politics and politicians.

  •  The Front Row -Anupama Chopra Rating-7
Dekh Tamasha Dekh, Feroz Abbas Khan’s second film, took me unawares. The political satire, set in a small Maharashtrian village, shifts gears from black comedy to tragedy and back again so rapidly that you find yourself smiling and being sickened all at once.

  •  Mumbai Mirror -Rahul Desai Rating-6
Perhaps the most remarkable aspect of playwright Feroz Abbas Khan's sociopolitical satire is the complete absence of a single strand of background music. As a result, there is a simmering heaviness and real-world gravity to the dark comical undertones that shape this fragmented communal drama.
