I clearly remember every bit of this movie and how almost every action and dialogue made me feel that I maybe, suffering from a problem. A very rare but an extremely serious one – one, of being incapable of laughing.
A talking statue in an empty town and I should’ve known what was next to follow. Not a very unique, unheard of story. Loser boy falls in love with a pretty girl at first sight – girl first hates loser boy – then becomes friends with loser boy – loser boy unable is to profess his love for pretty girl – pretty girl loves other loser boy – loser boy decides to sacrifice his love and helps pretty girl to marry the other loser boy – pretty girl realizes her true love for loser boy and dumps the other loser boy. However, of what I saw, the film is in no way as simple as it seems.
The plain love letter with feelings unseen, the cycle without failed breaks, the bankrupt ‘Happy Losers’ Club’, the unexplainable huge ugly bodyguards dressed in saris, the slapping a bald guy (twice) sitting in a restaurant, the knocking at another bald guy’s head, the dashing a blind man and telling him ‘dekh ke chal’, the all rounder loser friends, the out of the world ‘escape from boat to a train’ stunt, the ‘so pretty in peach top’ Ranbir act, the e-e-em-em-emotional a-a-att-att-attyachar by stammering, are few of the many reasons that bring me to the conclusion that I am incapable of laughing.
Ranbir was unexpectedly funny in strictly two to three scenes. Katrina tried to act with as much as efforts at stammering. Upen Patel almost camouflaged with the equipments at the gym, expect that this one spoke (and how I wished, that he had never spoken at all) Smita Jayekar and Darshan Zariwala delivered some of the best lines and the funniest scenes in the movie.
But this piece would be incomplete without the special mention to the ‘Writer’s astonishing imagination’ coming to play. A man dressed as Jesus driving in a tempo with Good Shepherd written on it, along with a white lamb, stops right in front of the church and then disappears!!!
And, the almighty ‘moong dal ke pakore’ wins the girl over ‘heeron ka haar’… Truly, on Gazab Ki Kahani…
