‘Ghoomketu’ is a comedy about an aspiring writer whose unique idea of storytelling is grounded in seeking inspiration from the quirks and mannerisms of his own family and their everyday lives. With a unique name, ‘Ghoomketu’ is the star that wanders across the world, only to return home. A simpleton hailing from a small town in Uttar Pradesh, Ghoomketu is un-accustomed to the ways of ‘Bambai’ and unaware of the rules set for writing stories.
However, in the wake of his dream, he embarks on a determined journey to the city that never sleeps. Ghoomketu brings his un-conventional style of storytelling closer to the celebration of Bollywood formulae. He spins stories that thrive on a feast of genres of thriller, comedy, drama and even horror. With Ghoomketu, one tastes success and failure on the path to pursuing an extraordinary dream. In an honest attempt, the film reflects how Bollywood seeks inspiration from a slice of our ordinary lives just as much as we seek aspiration from its grandiose charm.
The film is a celebration of Bollywood just as much Bollywood is a celebration of us. Ghoomketu is a star that shines brighter in his own courtyard. The film released on 22nd May, 2020 on Zee5 Premium.
