#MoneybackGuarantee( Hindi) Rating: * 1/2 #SunilPal’s 2nd Directorial venture following #BhavnaonKoSamjho, in which he tries his hand at almost all aspects of filmmaking once again, is poorly imagined and shabbily treated. It’s sheer low-end, small minded and small-budget, loudly driven bedlam masquerading as a comedy. No returns on this one and certainly no guarantees either!

Hindi Film review
A cinematic Selfie!
Film: Money-back Guarantee
Cast: Sunil Pal, Mukesh Khanna, Raju Shrivastav, Manoj Joshi
Director: Sunil Pal
Rating: * ½
This is a film with a social message, Directed, written and acted by Sunil Pal, the stand-up comic who did reasonably well on TV and now wants to strike the iron when it’s hot , in the cinemas. Unfortunately he forgot that his fans don’t want to pay the price of a ticket to watch him when they can well make do with the free re-runs on Telly. Pal had tried for a spot in Guiness with his earlier venture, his debut- ‘Bhavnaon ko Samjho’ which literally vanished without a trace when released. So this attempt is probably to earn some much needed respect.
‘Money-back Guarantee’ is basically an ego trip for Pal, in which he plays an aspiring singer who wins the top prize in a Live music game show on TV and finds himself richer by several Lakhs of rupees. His Guruji(Manoj Joshi) however is not so amused. Pal needs to get his sister married and is happy to win the prize which could be used as his sister’s dowry but Guruji’s desire to marry one of his pupils and grab the money for himself puts paid to those plans. Pal and his friend go shop to shop begging for a loan and eventually he goes back to driving his taxi. That’s when he gets hold of his money once again. But Guruji by then is laid-up in hospital and needs the money for treatment. The good hearted soul that he is , Pal decides to give away the money again- Only to return home and realize that he has become a celebrity and offers of work are pouring in with signing amounts much bigger than what he ever imagined.
It’s a familiar story with a moral ‘Do-gooders never lose’ but the technique employed in it’s telling and the poor treatment make it difficult to sit through. Coupled with that is the realization that laughter is hard to come by here. Too much melodrama and terrible amateurish acting make the going extremely difficult. Tacky song picturisations, poor picture and sound quality and inconsistent direction make it look like a terrible home-made video that even family members may think twice about revisiting!
