Comedy turns tragedy
3 March 2008 | by (Konstanz, Germany) – See all my reviews

Wow, what a masala (mix of spices)! This epic, if we can call it so, as it covers the full (short) lifetime of its protagonist "Lucky", from when his parents first met, to when he is finally buried... this movie has its good share of sometimes very silly comedy (the pop-eye headmaster, professor Liliput, even Shahrukh Khan comes over quite strangely, but sympathetic); romance at times very well done - but most of all it's a grabbing, poignant description of drug addiction and what tragical things it can do to people, demonstrated on the eradication of a once happy family. The earnestness of the message is driven home by the first closing title which reads: "Hopefully THE END to drugs" - of course, it wasn't.

This was the last movie the popular comedian Mehmood directed, and reading Wikipedia on Lucky Ali, it appears that he had a very personal message to tell - to the cinema audience, but mostly to his son Lucky who was experimenting with Marihuana. Lucky refused to play the "Lucky" role, which his brother Manzoor Ali played instead, but started playback singing with "Nasha Nasha" in this film - a bizarre song & dance number of drug addicts.

Mehmood himself plays goat-Baba, the scurrilous drug dealer - clad in green, with goat horns and a goat voice, he pushes his ware to young people, while repeatedly warning them... a bizarre person.

If you want to see strong drama which can make your tears flow, I can strongly recommend this. But it also had the biggest laugh I ever got from a Bollywood movie - Lata acting as a hen... :^)

The German title of the DVD is "Ein kleines Lächeln" (a little smile) - the grossest understatement! "Feind der Welt" (enemy of the world) would have been a correct translation of "Dushman Duniya ka".
