Ekkees Toppon Ki Salaami (ETKS) has a beautiful message which is unfortunately presented averagely. The film takes good thirty minutes to commence the original plot. That thirty minutes are nothing but just regretting the decision of watching the film. Anupam Kher’s retirement in the film takes a three sixty degree turn and suddenly you start enjoying the film. Strong message, decently presented with good performances and below average music makes ETKS a decent watch. Ravindra Gautam with honest intentions has managed to make a decent film. Lack of support to make this film was clearly visible on screen. Had the film been backed up properly it would have been a better fare. Director succeeds just because he manages to gives a beautiful message via this film. He has beautifully portrayed a father-son relation to which every father and son would relate to. Anupam Kher is the scene sealer and delivers his best performance in every single shot. Rest of the cast; Divyendu Sharma, Aditi Sharma, Neha Dhupia, Manu Rishi have played their parts well. Undoubtedly this is the weakest work of Ram Sampath. Not a single good composition in the film. Editing in the film could have been better. Initial thirty minutes could have been easily trimmed to a simple narrative saving everyone time. Background score of the film helps in making the film more interesting.
Ekkees Toppon Ki Salaami is a simple film with a simple message. The films needs to be watched once for directors effort and Anupam Kher’s convincing performance as an honest middle class father who sacrificed everything just for his kids. Decent fare and a one time watch.
