just awful
7 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I love movies. I'll hang in until the bitter end of mediocre movies, hoping, hoping, hoping that there will be a redeeming line or scene that will make the viewing worthwhile. That said, "Finding Preet" fell below my admittedly very low threshold of what I'll sit through. "Finding Preet" became the second movie I've ever turned off before the end (the first was "Bonfire of the Vanities.") What's wrong with this film? Let me count the ways: 1) The scriptwriting was forced, unnatural, and stilted. You had stock campy characters who never veered from stock, campy lines.

2) The acting was forced, unnatural, stilted; I'm not sure if any of these folks ever acted before or if they were plucked off the street, but they just didn't know how to read lines. Over and over again, there were missteps in timing, too-large gaps between lines and responses.

3) The plot was hackneyed - after 8 minutes, you could predict exactly what was going to happen in the rest of the movie.

4) Finally, the lead character, Priti, just never generated enough sympathy for me to give a flip what happened to her.

I've wracked my brain trying to think of something to compliment in this film, but can't come up with anything. This film works only as a demonstration of how to fly a movie right into the side of a mountain.
