Director David Dhawan once known as the King of slapstick comedies in the 90’s, and who later disappointed with sleazy B grades, has for a change scored full marks.
The story revolve around friendship of 3 boys , Sid (Ali Zafar), Omi (Divyendu Sharma) and Jai (Siddharth) who are room-mates in Goa. Sid is the serious type all seeddha-saddha, simple kind of character, while the other two Omi and Jai spend much of their lives womanizing and having a carefree ‘bindaas’ life. so far so good.
In their neighbourhood, arrives Seema (Tapsee Pannu) who has run away from her Father (Anupam Kher) on her moped, who is an army man and wants her daughter marry one.
She drives straight to her uncle’s (again Anupam Kher – twin bro) home in Goa.
Omi and Jai spot Seema and try to woo her one by one. Both fail but lie to each other about the result.Their friendship is later challenged when Sid wins Seema’s heart. Jealous of Sid’s romantic success, Jai and Omi pledge to break the two of them apart.
The story has the same flavour of the original, but with some David Dhawan tadka. The Movie does have some comic sequences and situational comedy.
As far as performances are considered, Divyendu and Siddhart stole the show, Diyendu makes you laugh and giggle throughout the film, with his scintillating performance and oneliners His comic shayari and plain faced comedy leave you in splits. All these dailogues and oneliners are presented in David Dhawan style – loud and cheesy garnished with Farhad-Sajid’s brand of dialogue. Zafar is more concerned about he how looks than emoting.Tapsee brings freshness to the movie, nothing much for her in the movie. She keeps smiling all over the movie.
The story also has an interesting side plot of love angle between Rishi Kapoor and Lilette Dubey.Their on screen romance look warm, cute and credible, and was a relief from the ongoing madness.
Music is average, it has some good numbers like Har Ek Friend Kamina Hota Hai’, ‘Dhichkyaaon Doom Doom’, ‘Ishq Mohallah’.
Rating – 3 Out of 5
Verdict – Movie is entirely for Youth, multiplex audiences gonna enjoy it, but it does lack the innocent comedy of the original. Is it better or worse, you decide.
