Was not planning to blog about the movie. Seriously was not. But then took it up because of DV(SRK fan.. active on twitter only when SRK movies release).
The brother-sister-jija trio of Sajid-Farah-Sirish Kunder have already done lot of maa-behan of dimaag with their last few movies. Out of the three I believe Sajid and Shirish should stop making movies. Their idea of slap stick comedy makes them deserve slaps.
Farah is smart though… she knew a movie without SRK will lead her no way. So much so… that she “forgave” SRK for slapping her husband and decided to make a movie with him. Make a Happy New Year to be released on Diwali.
The timing of the movie, and the fact that there is nothing other to watch will make this movie earn. But then the question is .. Is the movie good?
I would suggest go and watch the movie. You can skip the first 30 mins. SRKs eight packs only make him look like a sadak chaap lookha. The introduction fight scene has got no relevance to the movie. The introduction of other other characters is irrelevant. Sonu Sood’s, Boman Irani, Vivaan Shah intros can be skipped. You can start watching the movie from Abhishek Bachchans “Nandu Bhide .. Dimaag main kide” introduction. And his comic timing in the movie is impeccable !! Deepika’s Mohini is one more reason to watch out for in this movie.
If SRK fans are looking out for his usual romantic self.. be in for a surprise.. because somewhere I felt he acted maturely.. the lovey dovey scenes between him and Deepika are more like one sided … from Mohini’s side than SRK’s Charlie.
The robbery plan is informed to the public beforehand, and every heist movie lover can predict that this plan is going to kaput. And Kaput it goes… but in a very entertaining way.. specially when Nandu Bhide undresses to claps in the theater.
People in the theater were even able to guess the “Charlie“ password .. but then not in a “oh this is so boring” … but avidly..
Frankly I did download the movie and see it again… but while doing so.. I fast forwarded directly to Abhisheks entry…and fast forwarded the “revenge” part. This movie deserved to be hardly 1.5 hours to be frank.
Indiawaale song might just become a regular like Chak De on 15th August, 26th Jan … but not as huge…
Overall watch the movie for Abhisheks Nandu Bhide… and yes Farah Khan is lucky that SRK said yes for the movie… because without him this movie would have been just another dimaag ki maa-behan from the trio !!
