Maaf Karde Mere Baap

It was the turn of the millennium, a well known director/producer from the south teamed up with a solid team of amateurs as well as some well established names and gave us perhaps one of the GREATEST QUIESSENTIALLY Indian COMEDY THIS SIDE OF THE 80S.

And he never looked up again.

The downhill journey started with the golden team of Neeraj Vora and Priyadarshan who raped one English movie after the other and claimed it to be their. AND THE CLUELESS Indian AUDIENCE WATCHED AND LAUGHED, AND ONCE AGAIN AFTER NEARLY 5 YEARS PEOPLE WERE LAUGHING AT THE GOVINDA BRAND OF HUMOUR.

Which was exactly a bad thing, i loved the a few of the original Govinda comedies (favourite being Deewane Mastane), and if had seen too many good English movies THAN I CAN TAKE A HIKE.

But sooner than later the audience woke up to the loosely edited copy-paste jobs and the popularity of his movie began to wane.

And yet people continued to be fooled and were drawn to the cinemas by stellar cast especially Akshay Kumar.

But then he did the unthinkable, he dropped Akshay Kumar and that resulted in the culmination of all his past mistakes THIS.

The movie has nothing going for it.

The acting is merely OK with stellar performers like Paresh Rawal and Om Puri finally loosing out to a weak script, Akshay Kumar was merely good at his best and you can only imagine was a weak movie like this will do, GENELIA LOOKED SPARKLING BUT HER ACTING TALENT IS NOT QUITE UPTO THE MARK, the chemistry was non-existent between almost everybody, THE SPARK WAS MISSING COMPLETELY FROM THE FATHER SON DUO WHICH WAS MOST IMPORTANT.

The music is quite bad and adds nothing to the movie, the to add insult to injury the songs are misplaced.

Even though the concept had potential the script is weaker than most slapsticks, THE ENTIRE MATURE LOVE STORY WAS AS BAD AS HAVING UNDERCOOKED SEAFOOD (which i don't eat since I'm vegetarian).

And then there is the humour itself which was humorous for all of 10 mins in the first half and 15 mins in the entire movies,LETS NOT MENTION THE PRESENCE OF RAJPAL YADAV (i just did hehe).

AN In-depth ANALYSIS OF THE MOVIES SHORTCOMINGS WILL CLEARLY RUN INTO PAGES SO LETS GET THE TO GOOD PARTS AND THE CONCLUSION.

Genelia looks fresh and enticing, even looks sexy in a few scenes, acting could improve though.

Om Puri is actually funny in most scenes.

Some scenes promise and almost deliver.

Conclusion A MOVIE THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN A DECENT DRAMA IF THERE WAS REALLY ANY. Definitely not a comedy, avoid unless your a super Genelia fan (ARE there are any?).

-s no drama, no comedy, ordinary acting, bad songs, wasted potential.

+/-s had potential??!!!.

+s Genelia Dsouza, Om Puri, 15 mins of fun.

total 4/10 (only because i expected very less, fell even below my low expectations, REALLY I HOPE THIS IS A WAKE UP CALL FOR PRIYADARSHAN WHO HAD ONCE PROMISED US THE WORLD).
