“Oh! God, Kitni Bore Hai..….”
Rumy Jafry the man who gave us great comedies in direction of David Dhawan, Now comes up with his directorial venture. One does expect a total laughter marathon with loads of masala entertainment. Generally a good writer turns to be a good director also but sometimes things do not work in their favour….
“God Tussi Great Ho” is story of AP Arun Prajapati [Salman Khan], who works for a television company and host shows. But whatever he does goes against him. His boss, father and colleague no one is happy with him. Even his love interest in his colleague Aliya gets competition in form of channels new star Rocky [Sohail Khan]. Rocky tries to take over Aliya and AP’s new show. Dejected with failure AP blames God for all the failure. Hearing his abuses God [Amitabh Bachchan] decides to meet him, where on AP’s pressure God gives AP the power of God for next 10 days. Thus starts AP’s journey to lead the world with his powers and its consequences.
Music by Sajid Wajid is not up to the standards. The songs sound stale and heard. No freshness in them. They do not add or work in favour of the movie. Story and screenplay deserves a special mention. In this department the movie has done lots of hard work. As this movie is highly inspired by Hollywood blockbuster “Bruce Almighty”, which is still hot in DVD library, so the writers must have taken loads of pain to get hold of this DVD and over that have Indian touch or lets says revised it as per Salman-Sohail Khan films. But despite all the hard work still the movie is bland and lacks pace. The movie is too slow and lengthy, it just keeps moving on and on. Ashok Mehta’s cinematography is average, not as his standard.
Rumy Jafry’s direction is weak. His work as writer also fails to impress. Besides one or two laughs there is no humour. Wished his direction was even half of what he had written, the movie would have been great.
Salman Khan was not up to mark in first half. Wonder why he was screaming in first half in major scenes. In second half he stabilise and shows his screen presence, which he lacked in first half. Priyanka was not looking nice or has anything to boost in her performance. Sohail khan less said is good. Amitabh Bachchan in short cameo was a big waste, he hardly had few scenes in the movie. Anupam Kher was nice. Rajpal Yadav was stale.
So….”bol meri ‘Filmi Khopdi’ is film mein kitna hain dum???”
Bilkul bhi dum nahin hain, sirf star value hai which keeps you sit through out the movie. This movie had a great team but the final product was soulless. The makers wanted to make a comedy but it turned out to be a bore and then you wonder “Oh God!! Yeh film kitni Bore hai.”.
Rating – 1/5 [0.5 Only for Star face value]
