Storyline

Street-smart Johnny sells coffee in Mumbai on a bicycle and has several friends who he knows he can rely on. When he gets arrested and abused by Inspector Gadgil, popular model, Preeti Chawla, comes to his rescue despite of adverse publicity on her personal affair with Vishal Bhargav. Shortly thereafter he notices bundles of Rupee notes in the flat of Inspector Shashikant Chiple while delivering coffee, and shares this information with Parvez. Johnny does not know that Parvez is having an affair with Shashikant's wife, Divya, and soon will make plans to steal the cash concealed in the flat - a move that will endanger everyone's lives.

What's Up Johnny?
27 February 2010 | by (Fraggle Rock) – See all my reviews

Multiple intertwining stories are becoming quite common in Hindi cinema. Examples include 'Life...in a Metro', 'Sirf', 'Mumbai Meri Jaan', 'Firaaq' and now 'Tera Kya Hoga Johnny'. In Sudhir Mishra's film, the common link between the stories is the title character. Johnny is a teenager who dreams of going to Dubai one day and he hopes that one day he will get enough money (either from Priya, Parvez or a pimp). However, all the characters have their own struggles, their own dreams and ambitions that are linked with others and it's only a matter of time that Johnny finds himself involved in their mess.

Sudhir Mishra has made some amazing movies like 'Hazaar Khwahishein Aisi' but 'Tera Kya Hoga Johnny' isn't one of them. The pace is slow in the beginning. The Sudhir Mishra - Soha Ali Khan track looks contrived and ill fitting with the rest of the storyline. Moreover, some of the other subplots required development. The Abhay Deol item number is quite pointless. Some sequences which are suggestive and while the ambiguity may be intentional, it adds nothing to the film. Soha Ali Khan and Karan Nath give theatrical performances while Neil Nitin Mukesh still has a long way to go (he's pretty much in his 'Johnny Gaddaar' mode).

On the plus side, the background score and cinematography are excellent. Kay Kay Menon, Shahana Goswami and Saurabh Shukla give first rate performances. Debutant Sikandar Agarwal is impressive too. Some of the dialogues work well while others are ordinary.

'Tera Kya Hoga Johnny' may not be Mishra's best but it's still worth the watch. The concept is somewhat refreshing and you want to know what fate holds for these characters (even though they're not particularly likable).
