Bad selection has hit Arshad Warsi again; this time he is even projected as a sidekick of Ashish Chowdhry!! Overall, it’s a pathetic Xerox copy of last year’s “De Taali”.
John (Ashish), Sid (Arshad) and Amit (Yash Tonk) are college students. Sid is a skirt chaser, Amit is a bit sober and John is an introvert, who can’t express his feelings to Natasha (Aarti Chhabaria). After passing the exam, John decides to go to Natasha and propose, but she has left the city by that time. Heartbroken, John goes into a recluse. His buddies try out options to cheer him up, first by arranging Chameli (Shweta Menon) for him (which doesn’t work), and then drive him towards a new girlfriend Sheetal (Udita Goswami). John gets attracted to Sheetal and they come close. Meanwhile Natasha comes back and very touched to know the feelings John had for her. John is now confused between the two girls. What nobody knows that Sheetal was sent to them by AK47 (Shakti Kapoor) with a mission. Seeing John’s inclination towards Natasha, Sheetal turns aggressive and tries to spoil the relationship between the friends. Sid and Amit kidnap Sheetal to keep her away from John. How all three of them get their right partners is the rest of the story.
The screenplay is bad and dialogues meant to evoke laughter are cheap. Ajay Chandok has failed miserably to deliver on this script. Nothing works for this film. Scenes inserted to evoke titillation look forced (but lovers of trashy films may find solace in them). No wonder this was put in bags for long before release; and that Arshad Warsi simply refused to promote this film.
Performances: It’s a matter of research why and which filmmakers are opting to cast Ashish Chowdhry in a lead role; a complete incomplete performance. Arshad should stay away from such roles and concentrate on the quality factor. He has got bad lines, including toilet humor in the film (The peer role of “Paglu” in “De Taali” done by Ritesh Deshmukh was better written and executed). Yash Tonk is misfit but looks saner among all. Udita Goswami is average. Aarti Chhabaria and Vindu Dara Singh don’t qualify to be actors. Shakti Kapoor hams. It’s bad to see Aashish Vidyarthi in such inconsequential tapori role. Rather than coming back to Bollywood and do such roles, better do some good work down south. Shweta Menon, though corny, seems to be most likeable in the cast.
Music: Dabboo Malik’s music doesn’t work; but this film does not deserve any better score than this.
