‘Made In China’ is a film in which Gujarati businessman played by Rajkumar Rao, dejected by his failures, goes to China in a hope to succeed. There he sets about on an unusual and comical journey and finds something better.
The film is an utterly confused one. It is unsure about what to focus on and achieve. It starts with enlightening the audience with the meaning of ‘aphrodisiac’. The enlightenment is followed by the murder of Chinese General Zhang who was attending an Indo-China cultural summit organized in Ahmedabad.
Then suddenly out of nowhere a life of failed Gujarati entrepreneur Raghu played by Rajkumar Rao is showcased. The person who wasn’t capable of selling anything was sent to China for doing some random business deal. He returns by starting his own aphrodisiac business by consulting sexologist Dr. Vardhi played by Boman Irani.
The story is awful. There are many stories that have been started but haven’t reached to any conclusions. There are random jumps in the narratives and characters come and just vanish in thin air.
There is a helpful business guru in China played by Paresh Rawal and a villainous role played by Gajraj Rao, the audience is kept baffled throughout their performance in film.
The humor is unfunny and the emotions fail to reach out to the audiences. The film is a big mess that actors like Paresh Rawal, Boman Irani and Rajkumar Rao cannot make sense of.
Besides this, the makers have made an attempt at being radical. A wife is shown smoking while washing clothes and drinking on the prohibited place is against the sales of aphrodisiac.
A fim is another failed attempt after Khandani Shafakhana that stresses on the fact that sex is not vulgar and sex education is need of the hour.
