No accidental pleasure...
In times when more & more movies are being inspired from either Hollywood flicks or real-life incidents, here comes Accident on Hill Road which seems to be a mish-mash of the two.The result being it does justice to neither.
The self-explanatory title suggests that the film is about an accident that occurs on one of the famous streets of Mumbai,namely Hill Road. Celina Jaitley who plays a nurse bumps into Farooque Shaikh after a stint with drinks and drugs.She presumes that the man is dead and tries all means to dispose of the body. She is aided by her boyfriend, played ny abhimanyu Singh in this endeavour.What follows thereafter is what the audience has to endure.
Based on such a waferthin plot, the film which seems attempting to turn a thriller into a comic story,loses it's focus thus confusing the audience.This confusion eventually seems to have trickled down from debutant director Mahesh Nair and possibly also the team of writers working on Accident on Hill Road.
The direction leaves a lot to be desired, while technically the film is zilch. Music too seems jarring and adding to it are unncessary steamy scenes which even the front-benchers may be averse to.
Of the cast,Celina Jaitley does what she is best at.. Look Good.Apart from wearing a few revealing costumes and a couple of expressions,she doesnt do much. On the other hand,Abhimanyu Singh who showed so much promise in Anurag Kashyap's Gulal makes a faltering attempt in playing a drug-dealer and Don. But what makes one wonder the most is the presence of Farooque Shaikh,who in his career span has given us so many memorable movies that one is forced to think why he ever signed such a film in the 1st place.
Overall,this Accident can certainly be given a miss.
So bol meri “Filmi Khopdi” is film mein kitna hain dum ? Bilkul dum nahi hai.. So just avoid this hit and run saga.Any attempts in watching the same will cause you to hit your screens and run away from it.
