The Party (1968)

STORY – 1
DIRECTOR – 0
ACTOR – 1
MUSIC – 0
CULT – 1

Verdict – 3/5

Pros –
1) 5 minutes into the movie and you won’t realize it’s a British actor playing an Indian. This Indian stereotype can be attributed to Peter Sellers’ excellent performance.

 

Cons –
1) A great concept but the legendary director was stick to his slapstick humor tactics not trusting Peter Sellers. The climactic pie-fight from “The Great Race” was replaced by soap-bubbles. But it won’t work every time
2) Lack of supporting cast.
