In continuation with the latest trend of multi-starrer comedy, comes another addition : Team- The Force. Ajay Chandok directs an oft-narrated tale with the aid of some average actors and below average script.
The story revolves around three friends Raj (Sohail Khan), Yash (Yash Tonk) and Jassi (Vrajesh Hirjee) who aspire to make a name for themselves in the music industry. After unsuccessfully attempting to gain a foothold there, they are disheartened. The ray of hope in their life comes in the form of Babe (Kulbhushan Kharbanda) in whose bungalow they live as Paying Guests. Babe, who is affectionate & caring and dotes on them like his own children decides to finance their project as he feels their potential and talent may go to waste if he does not support them. He also encourages them to launch their own music album.
Consequently, Babe starts receiving extortion calls from an underworld don (Sayaji Shinde) who is eventually eyeing on his property too. What ensues is a scuffle between the 3 protagonists and the don’s henchmen. Needlesss to say, as per the conventional Bollywood cliché, the former emerge as winners in the end.
Nothing about the film seems refreshing. The story & script or the lack of it, the music which again is of average standards, the direction which seems to be directionless and above all the performances…. None of these do enough to create an impact. Technically, too the film has nothing to write home about.
Despite having few good actors in his kitty, the director fails to extract the best out of them. The performances are loud and garish. And the female lead ( Amrita Rao) just adds to the glamour quotient.
So bol meri ‘Filmi Khopdi’ is film mein kitna hain dum ? Bilkul dum nahi hai.. Completely an avoidable fare. Re-watch a classic instead, because this flick has neither the Team nor the Force.
