Torture!!!!
8 November 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

This is one of the worst movie to come out of Bollywood!!! I haven't yet seen RGV ki AAG so till then I can say this is the worst movie to come out of bollywood.

I unfortunately went to the the premiere of this movie at some nondescript movie hall in Mumbai as one of the cast member knew my father. At the end of the movie I ended up in a delirium and unknowingly abused the movie in front of that actor.That was a lame thing to do but considering the gruesome amount of psychological trauma he had put me through inviting me to watch the movie ,my behavior was totally cherubic. I cant come to terms with the fact that someone like Mr.Anupam Kher would even want his name associated with such a crapfest.

AABRA KA DAABRA A.K.A. THE MENTALLY CHALLENGED'S HARRY POTTER is a shambolic piece of work that should be avoided at any cost. The two lead child actors irritate you to the point that you feel at the end of the day you had a chainsaw to rip em off. Same can be said about the other actors in this movie. Production values are horrendous.Every technical aspect of the movie is so bad that you feel like even a layman would do better if given half a day to work on it. Story , Screenplay & concept as expected were not present at all. The worst scene is the "Indian style Quidditch scene"(What the hell was that). Music again was crappy and poor(as expected from Himesh)

If you really like torturing yourself watching the worlds worst movies then AABRA KA DAABRA should be the movie you are looking for. But i warn you "WATCH IT AT YOUR OWN RISK!!"

IMDb doesn't allow to give a zero rating so I have to keep a 1000kg stone over my heart and give it a rating of 1/10.

DAMN IMDb!!
