Storyline

Manikchand Khiralal is a struggling model who gets kicked out by his mentor, Dolly, when she finds another boyfriend; Lalabhai Bharodia has no business acumen, and has lost millions; Shruti is a much abused and underpaid designer; Gaurav Negi gets fired from his job with Glamour Ad Agency; Ashima Kapoor is a blacklisted daytime soap actress; and Bobby Arora is a slacker who lives off his wealthy parents and wastes their time and money. Although they have nothing in common, they will soon find out that they have been chosen by an eccentric billionaire, Krishnakumar Jaiswal, to be future heirs of Jaiswal Textiles. Initially thrilled at finding employment and fulfilling their dreams, the six will soon realize that they are also heirs to a huge debt and must arrange to re-pay it at any and all costs, while facing opposition from Parag Batra, Jaiswal's embittered Manager.

Turn the beat up!
18 April 2010 | by (Archangel, Russia) – See all my reviews

A perfect comedy: wild, colourful, stuffed with original catchy tunes and songs, and spiced up with a few moral lessons "Let me ha... let me ha... This is my rap song... Money hai... No honey... Turn the beat up!" Now and then there goes "Scandal!" in the audio background making it all look even madder. You can't stand overacting? Keep far away from this one then. Because it's got plenty of that and I love it here. It's one of those movies, which made me sad by its final credits because I did not want this screwed-up show to end.

To make a goofy allusion, I would compare this flick's excellence to the best of "Benny Hill Show" features, while it's got plenty of music and songs, tons of jokes, crazy innuendoes and gags, crowds of pretty gals and women, and a few punch lines, which underline human nature and present-day globalization. But, honestly speaking, this is one glossy music video that goes on as long as 2+ hours. Every 15 minutes this film made me laugh like crazy (starting with the insane opening music video and finishing with the extravagant depiction of the characters' dreams coming true). The image of the plumber was something to see ("No leakage... Call me any time. We are working 24 hours a day". - If only our plumbers were that hard-working and that willing and ready to fix anything!). Every song was funnier that the previous one. But don't let it mislead you: the film is clever. Yeah, you see it right: CLEVER. It gives a clear insight into our fears and misdeeds, which are a "scandal" in our own eyes, if you think about them. What is more, the film has a very detailed character development. If you watch closely, you start to understand these young men and women chosen, you start to care. Perhaps it is achieved by their childish emotions, the characters are overflowed with throughout the movie: they dream, cry, laugh, go mad, get mean, get sad, etc.

After watching "Paisa Vasool" I did not know what to expect from India, but this one has got me back on a very enjoyable track. I hope it's not the only modern product from India with such unbeatable "all-crazy-things-in-one" quality. The stylish camera-work alone deserves an Oscar. To listen to it all via proper audio equipment is a pleasure to the ear too (the sound of "cock-a-doodle-doo!" that goes during the screen presence of the mad billionaire is a killer). I don't know any American comedy of these days that can be a rival to this one (let alone being able to beat this title).

If you want to be entertained to no limits in a modern stylish and exotic way - turn your brain off and give it a try. If you want to learn moral lessons about family, friendship, loyalty, etc. - keep tuned and enjoy. If you are longing to have both (entertainment + food for thought) - it will match your purpose all right.

By the way, I'm 100% serious in my review, don't be fooled by the poor IMDb rating. And if you are looking for a retarded comedy, which truly deserves the rating of this one - get something like "Horse Feathers".

Dear India, thank you for this marvellous comedy! Last time I enjoyed cinema this much was Hong Kong John Woo's "A Better Tomorrow" (and as to comedies - "Monkey Business" with Cary Grant). This is what I call an "A-product".

A perfect 10 out of 10 - turn the beat up! Thank you for attention.
