What The FCUK!
21 July 2011 | by (Port Blair) – See all my reviews

Before saying anything about this flick, let's enjoy a strange story.

'Here comes an omnipotent serpent riding on a duplicate Harley Davidson. Wait a minute! Serpent on a bike? Yeah, that's true. The bike appears and disappears below his A$$ and the serpent, clad in a black cloak puts on his latest designer sunglasses.'

Well if you aren't an Indian, you won't probably buy this trash, because when I say 'omnipotent' it means the serpent has almost all the magical abilities that allow him to transform into any being, avenge his honor with might, kill his enemies, and rule the world. The problem is, we are too grown up for this folklore.

Rajkumar Kohli has always been obsessed with plots involving 'n' number of actors. By putting several stars on the screen, he seems to toil on making the 'one dialog per actor' rule in almost every scene, but entirely forgets the message a film is supposed to give. Whatever may have been the message of this film is out of question, but even if we assume that there was any, then it too passes out somewhere in the multitude of stars.

I found this film laughable in every sense. The dialog is terrible and at times the acting is almost laughable. Akshay, Sunil, Manisha, Aftab, Aditya, Sunny etc. have all been in decent movies, but in this they look like they've just come out of rehabilitation center and took their parts for a quick buck. They clearly didn't read the script or say 'What The F!' before accepting their parts, which makes me think they didn't care as long as they got the work.

No story, No plot, No believable characters, No good dialogs, No scares, No decent effects, No hummable songs, and No pretty girls (at least get some GOOD looking women, not the rehab retards).

Not worth watching/renting. The movie sucks big time!
