The masala in the story includes a weirdly comical Punjabi and Parsi family of Shenaya whose family can never get their dish antenna fixed despite the Punjabi father being a senior cop. Probably Himesh didn't want his characters to buy dish antennas sold by his mentor Salman's competitors Shahrukh or Aamir. Paresh Rawal in his cameo as the forever- in-doubt 'Jhandu Lal Tyagi' makes a feeble attempt to tickle your funny bone.
Whether Himesh's music is nasal, copied or otherwise is irrelevant, because in this film music also seems didn’t worked in mass numbers. In the end, you may come back humming a few of its songs 'Teri Meri Dosti Ka Aasmaan' or 'Rafa Dafa'. 'Mann Ka Radio' or rather 'Gham ka Radio' played repeatedly in the first few minutes makes it feel like a nail being drilled into a head and 'Damaadji' is horrendous.
All those songs! Where was one ending and the other starting? They were so seamless… just like a Pink Floyd album! One non-stop stream of Himesh Reshammiya consciousness.
Radio is not a film, yaar… it’s a whole new genre. It’s like that episode of Jaspal Bhatti’s Flop Show where he is presented with the Best Comedy trophy after he has made a tragic film.
No need also.
