Khajoor Pe Atke, a comedy around death, is a laugh riot written and directed by Harsh Chhaya, who makes his directorial debut.
The movie stars Manoj Pahwa, Vinay Pathak, Dolly Ahluwalia, Seema Pahwa, Sanah Kapoor and Suneeta Sengupta in the lead.
The story of the film revolves around an Item family, who on hearing news that one family member in Mumbai, Devendar, may pass off anytime soon, his siblings – Jeetendar, Ravindar and Lalita, rush down to be with him and his family for support, along with their families from across the country.
However when the patient neither improves nor passes away, everyone’s life is in a state of flux as they are unable to enjoy being in Mumbai, nor are they able to go back to their lives in their own towns and homes.
They are stuck in the flux of wanting the status of their loved one to change, one-way or the other with ancestral property looming in the backdrop.
The film is a tongue-in-cheek look at what a typical family goes through when on the outside one is supposed to behave politically correct but from the inside, each one is desperately frustrated and restless due to the tormenting uncertainty.
The film is produced by Welcome Friends Productions and presented by S.O.I.E., the film hits cinemas nationwide on 18th May and is distributed by PVR Pictures with music on Zee Music.
