Ghoomketu is the story of an aspiring writer from a small town in U.P. His failed attempt to get a job at the local newspaper leaves him disappointed. His father is fed up with his ‘good-for-nothing' son. He runs away to Mumbai. After some initial setbacks, he gives himself 30 days to try and prove his worth and make a mark as a bollywood writer. The film is full of humorous incidents and anecdotes of what unfolds in the 30 days.
Ghoomketu is the story of a struggling writer who one day heads out to Mumbai to make a career in Bollywood. The story is decent. The screenplay is a bit disjointed and you cannot help but think that this may have worked in 2014 but does seem a bit stale in 2020. It goes to show how much we have changed as a society. The body shaming jokes as an example, did not work for me. But having said that, a few individual scenes do work well, if you can ignore the shoddy editing. So in other words, it is an amalgamation of individual scenes put together.
