He writes stories like Bloody Bathrooms, Soulethi Maa, Dilwale Dulhania De Jayenge and wants to film superstars in his films. But Kismet has thought of something else for him. Putting together a book titled “How to become a Bollywood writer in 30 days”, he rushes to Mumbai to struggle in life. Here he narrates his stories to the filmmaker. In his film, Ranveer Singh dreams of taking Sonakshi Sinha. Shahrukh visits the office. From the romantic story, to the horror, comedy sub trie. The filmmaker eventually gave him 30.

He gives time for days to bring a good story. At the same time, the police officer Badlani (Anurag Kashyap) gets the job of catching Ghoomketu who has run away from the house, whom 30, the task of catching Ghoomketu, who has run away from home, gets the responsibility of police officer Badlani (Anurag Kashyap), who has to catch Ghoomketu in 30 days anyway. Now in these 30 days, Ghoomketu becomes a writer or he is caught by the police. The whole story revolves around this.

What is the story?

Ghoomketu is the story of a Bollywood dream a narrative that never fails to impress Indian audiences. It features cameos from mainstream actors like Ranveer Singh, Sonakshi Sinha, and Amitabh Bachchan to name a few. We are also taken into the sets of various films, where we get behind-the-scenes glimpses of what goes into the making of a movie. Besides, Ghoomketu’s life story is as filmy and masaaledaar as the stories he writes.

The trailer looks quite fun. Many best comedy punches also appear. Like – Ghoomketu goes to Shahrukh Khan’s office and asks to meet him. When he is told that he is shooting in Paris, Ghoomketu says that the address will go home when the two meet. Apart from this, many more interesting things are seen in the trailer.


Simply put, even a character from the film cannot hold you for 2 hours. Directed by Pushpendra Nath Mishra, the film’s story goes through the simplicity of the village, a strange family, Mumbai Nagaria and Bollywood. The struggle of Ghoomketu in Mumbai may attract your attention for a while, but the weak dialogue chills. The director had actors like Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Amitabh Bachchan for cameos.

But the weak dialogue cools the excitement. The director had actors like Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Amitabh Bachchan for cameos, I wish he had also tried to add newness to the story. Ghoomketu, dressed in colorful clothes, looks like a repeated scene of a worn out film. An attempt has been made to laugh at such things as fat wife, aunt’s burp, step-mother, which seems to be written in a superficial manner.


The strongest side of the film is its cast. Especially Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Ila Arun and Raghubir Yadav have played their character with full truth. Ila Arun’s work in Santo Bua’s character is excellent. She laughs and holds the strings of the story to one side. At the same time, Amitabh Bachchan’s cameo can make you happy. There is a sudden flare in the film as soon as Big B comes, the story gets heavy. Nawazuddin has tried his best to carry the film on his shoulders, but the lackluster writing did not support him.
