So Godawful, It's GENIUS!
10 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Let me be frank: N. Chandra's "Shikari" is hands-down one of the all-time worst films ever made. To be fair, there is a story, there is plot, and there is character development. What there isn't is any sense of reality, suspense, or logic applied to this wannabe (and I use the term loosely) "thriller." That having been said, the film is so, so bad as a thriller that it's actually a brilliant comedy. Every scene which is supposed to be menacing, terrifying, or moving is hilariously, hysterically, uproariously funny. Govinda is a born comedian (repetitive though he may be) and it seems he just can't contain the inner clown. Watch the scene in which he "chooses" to drop Karishma down a large mud hole to (he hopes) her death. His method of deciding whether she lives or dies? Eenie meenie minie mo. And no, I'm not joking.

"Shikari" was supposed to have been to Govinda's career what "Baazigar" and "Darr" were to Shah Rukh Khan's: proof that he could excel as the anti-hero. For more reasons than can be listed here, the film is a flat-out failure, reinforcing the notion that Govinda is, first and last and even when he doesn't want to be, a comic.

Tabu and Karishma (both brilliant actresses in my book) have plenty to do, though their hopeful performances fail to counter the sheer stupidity of the film they are stuck in. Karishma is a fiery romantic in search of her brother's killer; Tabu the subdued sister-in-law who simply wants to escape. Tabu is the more straightforward love interest, though Karishma seems to get the more conventional heroine tasks (dancing, prancing, and torturing the hero).

Bottom line: this is a bad, bad, BAD movie- but the conviction of its leading man and the filmmaker's fidelity to an absurdity he seems entirely unconscious of make it a veritable (and entirely accidental) masterpiece of farce.
