    STORY: Pappi and his men and one woman decide to find a treasure hidden within a disputed haveli in one neighborhood of Old Delhi.

    CRITICAL ANALYSIS
    When it comes to comedy Sanjeev Sharma has made it a point to make the audience have a good laugh with his acclaimed movies like Peepli Live, Hulla, and Raghu Romeo. He comes up with yet another bone tickling comedy film Saat Uchakkey starring an ensemble cast of Manoj Bajpayee, Anupam Kher, Kay Kay Menon, Annu Kapoor, Vijay Raaz, and Aditi Sharma. The film could have been a laugh riot, considering the presence of these actors known for their histrionics. Sadly, it is not. Director Sharma lets the film drag to an exhausted and stretched ending.

    TRADE ANALYSIS:
    The film releases with a low buzz, but since it has received mixed response from the critics, it might end up being the most viewed film along the movies which released this week.

    At the box-office, the film may recover its cost.
