So I have not written a review in a really long time, but this movie was so abysmally awful (yes, THAT BAD, I needed to use abysmal as an adverb to awful) that I had to save as many people from it as possible!
This movie brings so many questions to mind. Most of them being WHY!
Why would Ajay Devgan do this to himself, the man is a well respected actor, twice the winner of the national award? I understand Singham, heck I even (kind of) understand Golmaal, but why would he agree to this movie?!? Son of Sardar at least was funny and partially had some sort of logic, Action Jackson, made me loose any respect that was lying around.
Next is for Prabhudeva… if you are making a movie, especially around a hero who is a great dancer, WHY IN THE WORLD, would you cast Devgan in the role!?!? The choreography was a mess and so basic. The ONLY reprieve was the cameo by the always wonderful Shahid Kapoor, who I must say was the ONLY saving grace in the entire 2 hour plus car wreck. I have many questions for him, but this is the only one I will get to. I will ask him to PLEASE stop casting this young girls (or rather Sona) with men in their mid/late 40s! The only good pairing she has had is with Shahid, where she had an actual role.
I just feel bad for Sonakshi at this point, anyone who knows me is well aware that I absolutely adore the girl, but this was SUCH a terrible role. Maybe as bad as the one in Holiday, but at least she had more screen time. I don’t really blame her, as even though she has amazing acting chops, for some reason she isn’t getting offered the scripts that Shradha or Alia are getting. I really really want another Lootera in her future, but at least Sona got to showcase her dancing talent once again.
Which leads me to also be sad about the lack of offers for Yami Gautam. I loved her in Shud Desi Romance, but her roles keep getting shorter and shorter, here it seemed, all she did was get beat up over and over and then all of a sudden have a spinal injury and a child?!?! VERY confusing.
The songs were terrible. The story was…not there. I don’t really know what was happening except the frame kept jumping from one country to another and Ajay had a double role, and he was soooo irresistible that every women who saw him wanted him, including Sonakshi, who literally paid him so she could see him naked(!?!?!)
I wish Bollywood would wake up and stop being regressive and stop showing cliches such as a woman who smokes is the “bad one” and the one with her hair in a braid is the “wife”. Come on we are nearing the end of 2014, you have smarter audience. What is the point of the villain who has one blue eyes, he does not strike fear but rather makes one laugh. And why are his goons all dressed in orange suits, are they prepping for jail?
Overall, please do NOT waste your time with this one. I love the dancing in Prabhudeva ventures but this one did not even give me that. There is nothing good to see about this movie :(
Hoping Sona’s Tevar is better off!
