Ghoomketu revolves around an aspiring writer who lands in Mumbai to make it big in the film industry. Meanwhile, Anurag Kashyap plays a crooked cop in the film.

Sharing about his role, Nawazuddin revealed that there are striking similarities between him and the character he plays in Ghoomketu. “I had also come from a small town to Mumbai and I felt people here are ‘to the point’. It took time for me to adjust. Mumbai is advanced, fast paced and for people like us, it takes time to get into this groove. One has to struggle a lot initially as I wasn’t able to match the way things are here. The kind of struggle the writer has faced in the movie, I have also struggled a lot in the film industry as an actor. There are quite a few similarities between this character and my life,” Nawazuddin told PTI in an interview.

Anurag Kashyap calls himself a reluctant actor, gave a statement, “I didn’t need to do any prep. I was in between shoots and I am a reluctant actor so playing lazy came easily. And I was also at the most unfit at that time and that went with the character. Also, somehow I have only played a cop in my last three outings as an actor, including Ghoomketu now. If not an evil cop then a corrupt or a lazy cop but never a good cop.”

Ghoomketu Review
Below is an excerpt from Ghoomketu review by IANS:

“Few actors can turn a mediocre film into watchable fare as Nawazuddin does, and “Ghoomketu” only reiterates that fact. At a glance, he would seem in his comfort zone here, playing the smalltown guy. Yet as the new-look Nawaz adds an entirely different dimension to the smalltown hero prototype, he underlines once again the fact that his range as an actor is simply inexhaustible. If Nawaz comes up with a stellar act, most others in the cast deserve accolades, too. Ila Arun as Santo bua matches Nawazuddin”s comic timing. Anurag Kashyap impresses with understated humour essaying Inspector Badlani. Swanand Kirkire has its moments as Guddan chacha. Raghubir Yadav as Ghoomketu”s ”Dadda” would have been more effective if he did not give in to the tendency to ham.”
