‘’Not a Must-C’’
There are a few films where writers start penning a story with an interesting premise in their hand, but realise only later that they dont have enough creativity to move it further beyond a certain point.
CKkompany too is one such film. It starts on an interesting note with a look at 3 ordinary mortals and their bitter sweet lives. What follows this is a decently enjoyable series of gags, spoofs and a classic dig on The producer herself, alongwith the story moving at a decent pace. And thus the first half is quite an entertaining ride.
Its only a little while after the Intermission that the things go out of control. The director perhaps wanted to make a comedy with a message slightly similar to Munna Bhai series, but ran out of gags and ideas to use as sub-plots anymore. And as a result, The story stops proceeding after first half. Those endless sub-plots and forced guest appearances weren’t enough for a 2 hr long movie either and so we had those two item numbers that were literally thrusted into the already flagging narrative to make things even worse.
The climax too is confused, and We are left puzzled wondering what the makers wanted to do eventually.
The film has simply nothing to boast in terms of technical brilliance. The writers have come up with some hilarious one liners though.
The performances however are good enough to keep the audience engaged to some extent. Tusshar Kapoor is likeable after a long time (The last occasion was Khakee perhaps), while Rajpal Yadav is inconsistent. Anupam Kher and Mithun Chakravarthy are no great shakes.
The supporting cast overacts to the hilt, almost to the extent of irritating. And its really frustrating to see Raima Sen wasting herself so cruelly. We’d prefer you doing a 15 min cameo in ‘Parineeta’ rather than being a mere glamour quotient like here, Raima.
Final verdict :-
C Kkompany isn’t a bad film, but it isn’t a totally enjoyable flick either. What the audience gets at the end is a few good laughs. A below-average fare.
Rating – 2.25/5
