Happy New Year

What I hated about watching this film (the most) has absolutely nothing to do with the film. In Kuwait cinemas, all of Deepika's dance routines were cut off. Basically, the only chance of me being able to enjoy this film (at least a bit) was shot down by the KNCC.

The only GOOD part about the film was Jackie dada, who looked amazing in those suits / get up. Suits him.

Lots of 'inspired' moments in the film, and that just makes me roll my eyes. Bas karo yaar. Seriously, bahut hogaya. They couldn't even do the spoof bits of their own films properly in this one. The film has exceptionally high production value and it shows where they have spent the money. But the film / plot / performances (apart from the negligible screen time allotted to Jackie) are CHEAP.

Many will insist it was intentional / by design and that's what the makers wanted to show. Watching this 'film', it is pretty obvious that this is another one of those masti ideas the makers had over a drink-session where they said 'let's see how much nonsense crap we can get away with this time' and they made a vacation trip out of it as well. If you want to see how to portray a ghaati character in a classy way, please watch how RGV has shot Aamir Khan in Rangeela.

SRK is easily ignored in this one.

This is probably the first time that Sonu Sood has managed to look bad (when without shades, it just looks like the guy has an eye infection or something).

Abhishek Bachchan is his usual cheap self. I don't understand why he always gets such pathetic roles. He is bad, but surely no one can be THAT bad that he never gets offered a different character to play!

Vivaan Shah's character is… well let's just say half-baked would be a generous compliment. This is a good actor who has been wasted in this glossed-over pile of stinking shit. Sad.

Dance Like A Chammiya song - I get the point, but I don't understand why it had to be so OTT. It was in bad taste.

Nonsense Ki Night song - This was the makers being obvious about the film being another attempt to shower shit on the audience, convinced that the audience will lap it up anyway (which the audience clearly did).

The entire Maa ke baare mein kuchch mat Kehna about Jag was ridiculous, unnecessary and only included for cheap laughs. Same goes for the bit about Tammy's bag holding an entire super-market. Given all the screen-time spent on these cheap laughs, wouldn't it be better to just put in a sentence or two establishing Rohan's rep / credentials as a hacker? Taking control of a DJ's console isn't exactly indicative of his ability to hack and manipulate security feeds or electronic voting systems or laser shields.

Don't even get me started on the bullet proof glass safe. In fact, the entire sequence inside the vault room is laughable.

The film was just one nonsense clip after another, thrown in and mixed up by the makers who are fully aware that majority of the audience comprises of absolute idiots who will clap even if SRK is jangling a set of keys on the screen for 3 hours screaming 'look at the shiny shiny'.

Thoda tou class rakho yaar. Kab tak kachchra banaate rahoge? Masala film banaani hai tou Dabang jaisi banaao na yaar. Ye… ye kya cheap chichore-baazi karte rehte ho!
