Remember WAISA BHI HOTA HAI - II, one of the first quirky comedies to be emerging out of a new look Bollywood in the early years of the current century?
Though this Arshad Warsi-Sandha Mridul starrer didn't quite meet with the box office success that it deserved, it made way for many more non-linear comedies to follow in times to come. The film's director Shashanka Ghosh though chose to keep a little low and didn't make any film for the big screen in the meanwhile.
Now 5 years after the release of WAISA BHI HOTA HAI - II, he returns with yet another quirky film, which is titled QUICK GUN MURUGAN. An English/Tamil film, QUICK GUN MURUGAN is said to be a Western spoof with attitude, featuring outlandish songs, outrageous melodrama and crazy action sequences including a classic duel in a traffic jam.
As per the makers 'Phat Phish Motion Pictures', the film tells the story of Quick Gun Murugun - a South Indian karmic cowboy (played by Rajendra Prasad) whose duty is to protect and cows. When faced with a world-conquering arch villain restaurant owner (Naseer) who wants to create the ultimate McDosa chain using beef, Quick Gun enters into an epic battle of vegetarianism vs. non-vegetarianism that spans time and space, from a small South Indian village to an Indian heaven and then finally to a cosmopolitan Mumbai across 15 years.
While Rajendra Prasad in the title role flaunts a cowboy get up, Rambha plays the role of a blonde girl named Mango Dolly. The film also stars Anu Menon, Sandhya Mridul, Vinay Pathak, Raju Sundaram (who is called Rowdy MBA) and Ranvir Shorey (in a guest appearance).
Shot prominently in Hyderabad, the film has music by Daniel George who was the man behind the superb retro background score of JOHNNY GADDAAR.
