Satish Kaushik has had interesting hair-raising experience. Last time when he used it his experiment paid off. It was in TERE NAAM where he gave a new hairdo to Salman Khan, used a new location primarily between Mathura and Agra in UP and because of this element of novelty, apart from a different content delivered his first real time hit in his oeuvre. Salman Khan's hair do indeed became a craze of the nation.
Reference to hairdo is being made, as for KARZZZ Himesh Reshamiaya has got a new hair transplant on his head and he has set his cap aside, Satish Kaushik is sort of giving a new identity to Himesh through his film, and the component of identity is in the form of a hairdo. In a typically humble approach that Satish Kaushik brings in through his films and characterizations, his main protagonist Himesh has also gone humble and has claimed on record that Ranbir Kapoor would have been a better choice to play the role of Monty than him. This may also be an interesting ploy as the fans of Ranbir Kapoor may be prodded to come up and see whether Himesh has delivered or Ranbir could have been a better choice.
Satish Kaushik is the man, who has written the first urban comedy of India JAANE BHI DO YAARON, but he did not follow it up through his directorial ventures, and the audience is losing in the bargain, as his on-screen comic capers cannot compensate for the loss that the Indian audience is suffering as a genuine comedy writer. What could propel him to take it up would be a success that he achieves through KARZZZ.
The portents are ominous, the songs have already climbed on to the popularity charts, especially Tandoori nights, and its association with the cuisine of North India could also be a factor in the fans coming to see how a night can be tandoori in KARZZZ.
KARZ of Subhash Ghai is a legendary film and comparisons would be obvious as in making KARZ a hit baritone voice of Kishore Kumar had been a major success. If comparisons are to be brought about, then like Om Shanti Om became an anthem in its time, tandoori nights of present KARZZZ are gravitating towards it.
For the sake of Indian audience to have a dose of bone tickling comedies in the near future from Satish Kaushik, KARZZZ needs to hit the bulls' eye.
