Champak Chaturvedi runs a theatrical troupe in India. He hires two men, Bunty - a graduate in Arts, and Babla- who cannot read nor write English. One has to play the role of the play's hero, while one the villain. Both men end up squabbling with each other, as both want the hero's part. Then Champak finds out that Bunty has molested the play's heroine, Anjali, and punishes him. The group gets a contract to stage 30 plays in Britain, however, on the day of the departure, Anjali opts out, leaving Champak no alternative but to travel without a heroine, but hoping to recruit one while in Britain. Upon arrival, Babla sets about to find a suitable heroine from the Indian population, but Bunty beats him to it and recruits a woman named Munni. Babla has his suitcase switched by another containing heroin, and as a result both men end being suspects by the local Police, whose Commissioner is an Indian, J.D. Mehra. Then both Munni and Bunty fall in love with each other. Then Munni has an ... Written by
Move on Priyadarshan. No doubt you gave us one of the best comedies ever made in Hera Pheri, but its enough now. Accept the fact that you cannot create another Hera Pheri. Its time to try something new.
The biggest issue with Bhagam Bhag is everyone is trying too much, just too much, while comedy should as effortless as possible. The storyline is haphazard. In race of making a comic thriller, the end product was neither a complete comedy and remained far from being a thriller. Pitching comic line in most tense of situation dilute the grip of thriller and could not manage to grab the comic timing totally either.
Another problem lies in the fact that Akshay Kumar is over utilised while Govinda is almost wasted. Its high time for Akshay to change his comic style. Of course he possesses probably the best comic timing in the current generation of lead actors, but excess of every thing is bad. He should give it a break, may return to action flicks for a while. Govinda proves he still has it in him, in the limited screen presence and unimaginative script.
Its a typical Priyadarshan type film. Some good laughs in the start, some twist in the tale and chaos in the end. Not that its bad, just nothing new. But still some really funny sequences in the start makes the first half entertaining.
But again, its time Mr. Priyadarshan. Move on. We hear that David Dhavan is giving finishing touches to some of his ventures. Move on before David recaptures his throne of Comedy King.
