What a boring pretentious piece of ripoff! Yes, 'Fool N Final' is a very poor ripoff of 'Snatch'. Direction is very amateurish. Sound effects are abysmal. Performances sucked. Vivek Oberoi is funny at parts and sucks otherwise. Sunny Deol sucks (as he does in all his films since 1994). Shahid Kapoor seems to confuse acting with exposing his teeth and pretending to say a few words. Sharmila Tagore is wasted. Could Sameera Reddy look more uninterested? Ayesha Takia seems to enjoy fluttering her eyelashes. Chunkey Pandey seems to think talking in a cringe-inducing voice is acting. Om Puri is wasted too. Direction is amateurish. What a whole lot of bore! I at least expected a few laughs and this crap didn't even provide me that!
I have seen a lot of Indian movies which were copied from some real good Hollywood movies. Some though they were copies of Hollywood movies but still worth a watch. Like Kante (a mixture of Usual Suspect, Reservoir Dogs and heat), Musafir (a mixture of Confidence and U-Turn) and a lot of other titles. But this movies which is one of the most pathetic copy of Snatch. Most of these B rated directors they go to a DVD store, watch the movies and translate it in there own language to make a new movie. Well anybody who has not seen this movie i will suggest don't waste your money. If you have seen snatch and liked it you will be really disappointed to watch this. Somebody should inform Guy Richie about this mockery. I definitely believe that most of the actors in this movies have seen Snatch what i can't understand is how do they agree to such a non-sense. Well only one more thing for everybody in bollywood They should try to do some original work cox that's what they are good at. Stop ripping others ideas and embarrassing yourself by making such crap.
Rubbish is actually an understatement. Its hard to even begin to
describe how terrible this movie is. I understand the fact that some
movies require you to suspend your belief, but this is just pushing it
too far. The story makes absolutely no sense, the plots are too damn
confusing and the acting is just horrifying.
That said, it can be somewhat entertaining if you don't wear your thinking caps. Paresh Rawal and Johnny Lever do give you some giggles but the rest of them do no justice to their acting talents. Sharmila Tagore and Om Puri are some of the finest actors around in Bollywood and it is sad to see them do roles such as these.
The music is crappy, the special effects are crappier and Chunkey Pandey is the crappiest of them all! Avoid watching this movie as it is just not worth it.
The movie started off really good with the diamond robbery then the film takes you to a lot of different places like flipping through a comic book which was quite irritating. Paresh Rawal & Johnny Lever were not really that funny as they usually are but Chunkey Pandey was the way he speaks was so funny that I was killing myself with laughter every time he spoke. Arbaaz Khan was the best in the whole film especially in the scene where he was threaten everyone to get the diamond with a crossbow and was wearing sunglasses. Ayesha Takia was looking beautiful & her acting was cute but the rest of the cast were not impressive and Viveik Oberoi is better off in negative roles because his acting in Shootout in Lokhandwala was terrific. The story is similar to Awara Paagal Deewana e.g. comic thriller about everyone after diamond/s. Overall it's OK to be watched once by rent or if it's on TV or something but not the kind of film to be bought on DVD. The only two good songs are Tere Layee & Yeh Dooriyaan.
Firoz Nadiadwala made his career with HERA PHERI, APD and the recent
PHIR HERA PHERI
So now he is stuck with the same idea of film-making
So what this film has?
It has a big star cast as usual in such comedy films where they have so many characters and sub plots that you get more confused
So here we have The once funny now boring Johny Lever and Paresh Rawal(who is loosing his touch now) Shahid Kapur just after VIVAAH perhaps he thought of getting a hit as a comedy as those days before VIVAAH he was going bad in his career Ayesha Takia need i say anything ? Vivek Oberoi- again nothing needs to be said about this crazy people Sunny Deol- phew! Arbaaz, Chunky, Jackie- you find this people in so many such films
To sum up this is some stupid comedy based in Dubai(mostly such films r set there) and the most ridiculous situations, boring comedy and stunts and dances
Direction by Ahmed Khan is bad Music is okay
Amongst actors Paresh is funny in places but nothing great Johny is monotonous Shahid is okay but he tends to overdo it Ayesha has nothing to do like mostly in her films Sameera too is just added Sunny Deol does his repetitive acting Vivek has a short nonsense role Om Puri and Sharmila are wasted Jackie, Arbaaz, Chunky are crazy as usual Zakir is as usual Suresh Menon is a gap filler

Bad rip off of British Movie SNATCH.... if you haven't watched the
British version of the movie.. you might enjoy the movie!!! The story
is got some good presentation... shown as a bits of comic novel. Vivek
Oberio as usual OVER OVER ACTING... SUNNY DOEL - again as usual
screaming!!! Jackie - thank god - he doesn't walk like a zombie in this
movie... Paresh Rawal and Johny - make u laugh!!! But again, as i told
you... its not well in-acted movie..
Ayesha Takia - looks totally trash - more like a small kiddo... Somebody needs to tell Shahid Kappor that he is no Superman!!
SNATCH is fast paced movie and Brad Pitt is really good in the movie!!!
"Fool'N'Final" represents the worst in not only Bollywood film history
but the history of cinema itself. There are far too many films like
this that are made or rather 'remade' in Bollywood without rhyme or
reason. There are no saving graces for the film, unlike other remakes
that directly rip off the story and give it an 'Indianize' it as
American remakes tend to do, this film doesn't which leaves it as an
empty and hollow commercial shell. The problem lies within the fact
that this film is nothing more than a 'get rich quick' scheme concocted
by it's producers, Base Industries Groups which is owned by the
Nadiawala's. The film that they ripped off is Guy Ritchie's 2000 Hit
"Snatch". One has to scoff at B.I.G.'s mission statement which can be
located on the "Hera Phiri" website where they state that they "believe
that the fountainhead of film making lies at the confluence of
creativity, talent, technology & technique. In the quest for
entertainment that appeals to the heart & mind, the entity considers
itself as a medium where the flourish of imagination journeys to the
senses of the entertained." (which can be located at this address
http://www.phirherapheri.in/base.htm. Obviously just like other film
producers, what they say has little to do with what they mean.
The film boasts what can be considered a star cast. At the helm is Shahid Kapur and his lady love interest (in a story that is never explored but only hinted at) Ayesha Takia. Their support comes in from Vivek Oberoi, Sunny Deol, Jackie Shroff, Paresh Rawal, Om Puri, Johnny Lever, Gulshan Grover, Arbaaz Khan, Chunky Pandey and Sharmila Tagore. With solid experience like that behind it, you would think that the performances would be at least entertaining, not mind blowing but at least entertaining. But you would be wrong and for this, you can be forgiven. Not one actor manages to entertain. Shahid Kapur is Shahid Kapur which is nothing special because the only reason he is allowed to exist in Bollywood is because millions of teenage girls fawn over him. Ayesha Takia, who managed to spark interest with her role in 'Dor', does nothing with her role leading her to quickly becoming the most un-interesting fairly new talent of the next generation. Oberoi, who at times has almost gleefully recalled his training at NYU continues to spit out roles that incline viewers to believe that he didn't actually learn anything while in training. Deol, Shroff, Puri, Pandy, and Tagore are all wasted in roles that are needed because...well, their roles were in the original and there are character spaces that needed to be filled. However, it is Pandey that gives a stand out performance even though his role is mediocre and pale in comparison to Benicio Del Toro in "Snatch".
Though there are snippets of originality that come in the form of the directorial technique, they are pale in comparison to the quick editing techniques and framing that is used by Ritchie in "Snatch". The film is laid out like a comic strip, however, this wanes quickly when there is no need for it when it starts to become over used.
The writing is uninspired almost as much as the direction is, this is what causes the overall production to suffer. The actors look uninterested and the viewer quickly realizes that the actors are doing this either because their careers have faded away or because they needed a paycheck to sustain their high flying Bollywood lifestyles (which according to interviews consists of sitting at home and listening to their parents).
The soundtrack, which is an integral ingredient in a Bollywood production, is uninspired commercial bird droppings. The picturization of the songs are even worse with actors running around in 'bling' gear pretending to act cool not realizing that a lot of people don't actually by into the 'bling' factor. Oh, and Mike Tyson appears during the end song. Why? Because the producers felt that he could help to sell an appearance that consists of him throwing shadow punches at the camera while inter cutting to the rest of the cast dancing in their 'bling' gear - that and the fact that Tyson needs the money right now.
A waste of space and time.
When I heard about the movie Fool 'N' Final, I thought it would be a
complete comedy, but it turned out to be the complete opposite.
1. way too many characters (and it really bothered me the way they put Sameera Reddy in the movie just for eye candy. my mom could have done her role, and she doesn't even speak Hindi)
2. too many plots, and a lot of pointless scenes
3. NOT FUNNY!
The cast of this movie, you could say, are all pretty good actors. I really wish they hadn't wasted their time with this movie AND DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME EITHER!
I am one of the most unlucky person in the world. I first watch this
movie 'fool N final' and the watch the original movie 'Snatch'. That is
why I was not able to enjoy the movie Snatch as I was knowing what is
going to happen. I must say that 'Fool n Final' is one of the badly
failed copy cat movies. Not that all the copy cat movies fails. We have
good examples of Aitraaz, Bheja Fry, and not so bad examples of Murder,
Kaante. This movie fails in copying the fun of the original plot for
If you are reading this to decide whether to watch the movie or not, I will suggest you to watch movie Snatch rather. If you can not get Snatch then may be go on and watch this one. But spend as little money as possible. There are few scenes in the movie which are funny, but they the rest are utter garbage. The changed story line doesn't suit the Indian climate. Music is not so good, acting is not up to mark. I wont say anything much about this.
Watch on your risk, or to be safe watch original movie 'Snatch'.
Well, the title partly indicates what the film is - foolish! It is
completely impractical, has some loose comedy, along with some drama
and action. They did manage to get lots of notable actors, but still
it's just a circus. For eg., how CAN there be criminals like those
found in India in UAE also? Like many of Sunny Deol's films, this also
portrays him as an invincible superhero.
Story revolves around a group of small time thieves in Dubai who get involved with some cheap goons who are behind a very expensive diamond.
The only good are FEW comedy scenes, especially on Paresh Rawal's part, and the locations in Dubai. You can gt a good glimpse of the city by watching this film.
Everything else is nonsense- the songs, most of the comedy, the drama..
It's not worth watching really.
