Waisa Bhi Hota Hai Part II (Hindi: वैसा भी होता है, English: It Happens That Way Too) is a 2003 Indian movie starring Arshad Warsi. Shashanka Ghosh, the creative driver behind the launch of MTV and Channel V in India, marks his debut as a director with this film.[1] Running in many parallel threads, it is in equal parts a comedy, satire, crime, and a Hindi masala film. The film is most famous for its songs "Allah ke Bande" performed by Kailash Kher and "Sajna Aa Bhi Jaa" performed by Shibani Kashyap.

Plot[edit]

Puneet Sayal (Arshad Warsi) is a copywriter with a dream: to earn enough cash to dump his job and live peacefully in Nainital. Till the said dream materialises however, he's living in Bombay with his girlfriend Agni (Sandhya Mridul).

Things go asunder one day when he finds out his brother's been shot dead — a brother he's hardly acknowledged in the past. Agni finds out and, following an argument, throws him out of the house. Puneet goes on a drinking spree that leads him to a park bench where he witnesses someone being shot. He doesn't know it yet, but this is the end of his life as he knows it.

He saves the injured man — a gangster called Vishnu (Prashant Narayanan) — and the act lands him squarely in the middle of Bombay's famed gang wars.

The war between ganglords Ganpat (Anant Jog) and Gangu (Pratima Kazmi) is a second thread in the film. Ganpat is the dominant kingpin, and Gangu is the perpetual second-in-place who's never given up her dreams of displacing Ganpat as top don.

Cast[edit]

Reception[edit]

The film did poorly at the box office in most parts of India. However, a small audience in urban India did find it interesting and have compared it with the likes of other cult classics.[citation needed] Arshad Warsi and Prashant Narayanan were highly appreciated for their performances.[citation needed] Singer Kailash Kher, however, won the most plaudits for his brilliant voice in the chart-topping song "Allah ke Bande".

Trivia[edit]

Quotes[edit]

  • (Translated from Hindi): "My wife is in the police, my friend's a shooter... how did I become a writer?"

Kailash Kher won the Best Male Playback Singer award at the 2004 Star Screen Awards. The film was nominated for Best Performance in a Negative Role (Pratima Kazmi), Best Dialogues, Best Editing, Best Lyrics and Best Screenplay at the Star Screen Awards but failed to win any.
