Had debutant director Harsh Chhaya gone the whole hog to expose the hypocritical, self-serving institution of relatives and relationships, Khajoor Pe Atke would have been a paisa vasool film.Not that Chhaya doesn't try, but the film lacks cutting edge satire, that X-factor.To twist Leo Tolstoy's 'all happy families are all alike', Khajoor Pe Atke is a film about the Sharma family that is not only happy like all families, but it is also hypocritical like families you must have come across.One of the brothers in the Sharma family is in a coma and his brothers Jeetendar (Manoj Pahwa) and Ravinder (Vinay Pathak) and eldest sister Lalli (Dolly Ahluwalia), ridden by their 'duniyawale kya kahenge?' and 'zindagi bhar sunate rahenge ki hum log dekhne nahi gaye' guilt come visiting their bed-ridden, coma-stricken, brother Deven (Birendar), his wife Kadambari (Alka Amin) and son Alok (Vicky Arora)Being the family that the Sharmas are, they bring their children and wives Sushila (Seema Pahwa) and Anuradha (Suneeta Sengupta) too.
