Rating: 2 outta 10.
Yeah,,, Jhoom Baraabar Jhoom, Stinking Kachra ( Garbage), Get my Broom! Its a mind numbing, torturous film and Shaad Ali has totally lost it. Thank god its just for 2 hours, but what a long time that seems. I remembered that famous line from a song, Poocho naa kaise maine rain bitaayi, jug jug jaise ek pal beeta !!!
Ok so the plot is like this. Abhishek urf Ricky meets Preity urf Alvira at a railway station. They have come there to receive someone, but the train is late. Both of them sit on the same table and start a conversation. Both fabricate their love stories to kill time and the first hour langours along with their over the top and ridiculously pathetic stories. By the time the train comes, both have fallen in love with each other, but the problem is both lie to each other that they are engaged, by choice. In the second half, they find a way to meet each other and bore the audience to death. Yes, in the end, the misunderstandings are eliminated and they live happily ever after.
I interviewed Shaad Ali in my nightmare yesterday after watching the movie:
Viru: Shaad have you completely lost it?
Shaad: Yes, definitely. I lost my screws at the railway station.
Viru: Why was Amitabh and the title song inserted at every possible juncture in the movie?
Shaad: I had no script, how the hell was the movie supposed to run for 2 hours?
Viru: Why was everyone acting like crazy people (Abhishek over the top, Preity like a dumbo, Bobby like a moron)?
Shaad: Dunno why? I had told them all to be natural, thats it! Yeah, I did ask them to mimic me somtimes.
Viru: Who did the pityful choreography?
Shaad: Whats choreography?
Viru: And what about the forced, juvenile comedy dialogues? Who wrote them?
Shaad: My son ofcourse. I am mighty proud of him. After all juggling 3rd standard studies and writing dialogues is tough work.
Viru: What about the music? Only one good song and that also after having such good music directors like Shankar , Ehsaan, loy?
Shaad: I dont know whats wrong with songs, I love them.After all I did pay them 5 rupees each and did promise them first copy of this films DVD to them. Not to mention free trail show tickets.
Viru: Finally, did you enjoy making this film? Coz I sure didnt watching it!!!
Shaad: Yes, I had a blast of my life. If I die tomm, I would be satisfied.
Viru: Why tomm? Kal ka kaam aaj karo... And then I picked up the REEL of this movie and pounded his head with it.
S.Y.S - save your souls and stay away from the theaters while this flick is on. Coz maybe one day u wont have an alternative and be tempted to eat the forbidden apple!
