Storyline

Bangkok-based bike-racer Sameer Singh gets in debt with Gulshan, and flees to the Bahamas to live with his brother, Sagar, and his live-in girlfriend, Mona. But Gulshan catches up with him, allegedly kills Nikki, who Sameer loves, and forcibly abducts Mona. In order to return the money, the duo, along with Aarav Malhotra, decide to scour the bottom of the ocean for a ship 'Lady in Blue' that was sunk on purpose in July 1949. This ship contains treasure that was being returned by the tyrannical British as a goodwill gesture. The trio will soon find that unknown dangers await them and that one of them has a hidden agenda of his own. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Trivia

Lara Dutta didn't know how to swim when she was cast, so she went on training. She had almost drowned while filming the movie Andaaz (2003), but was rescued by the actor Akshay Kumar. Strangely, Akshay was the one who recommended her name for this underwater exploration adventure movie. See more »

Director :- Anthony D'Souza

Rating :- * 1/2

Since the past one month or so wherever i go, be it a night club, or a wedding, or just usual hangout spots, i noticed the songs of "Blue" playing over 'n' over. That's called excellent publicity. It would do good to any movie, only if, with a BIG "IF", the movie is good, or at least decent. That is not the case with "Blue".

Excellent publicity can't do good for a really BAD and PATHETIC movie. When i first saw the promo of the movie i thought this might not be the most critically acclaimed film of the year but it should be a "Fun to watch popcorn movie". But no, it turns out to be a stinking affair, smellier than Mr Akshay Kumar's socks which he's wearing since his last successful film "Singh is Kinng" although that movie wasn't a good one, but still it was way better than "Blue".

First lets just get to the premise of the film. The plot revolves around the trio mainly Sunjay Dutt(Sagar), Akhshay Kumar(Aarav, Sagar's friend) and Zayed Khan(Sam, Sagar's younger brother). Also there is Lara Dutta(Mona, Sagar's better half) and Katrina Kaif(Nikki) and Rahul Dev(Gulshan).

Sagar and Aarav are friends, together they go fishing and have an occasional boxing face off. Aarav tries to convince Sagar to go treasure hunting with him, because only Sagar knows the whereabouts of it. But Sagar refuses due to the reason that his father lost his life while searching for that treasure and blames himself for his father's death.

The story cuts to Sam, who is in Malaysia doing bike races, he gets a job from Gulshan(Rahul Dev) to deliver a package, but he loses it on the way, now Gulshan wants either his package back or $50 million. Nikki(Katrina, Sam's love interest and also working with Gulshan( advices him to leave Malaysia and go somewhere else, so he goes to Bahamas to his elder brother Sagar, that's where the main story begins.

Coming to the main highlight of this film, the underwater sequences, believe me they were that good. Excellent lighting and camera angles and shots makes it look like an international affair. But that's the only thing good about "Blue". The action sequences are passable to say the least. No thrilling action sequence is to be found here. Only lame-money-spending-good-for-nothing kind of action sequences are there. Specifically the bike chase sequence, the one involving some 4-5 bikes and a train was so lame, the bikes which were supposed to be on the chase seems like they are out on a picnic and are grouping together to enjoy the sight-seeing, including the guy on the bike they were supposed to be chasing. If that doesn't make you shake your head in disbelief then the dialogs would definitely do that, for instance Aarav saying "Lets go take out the treasure from the sea", as if he's talking about going for window shopping and that too for a toothbrush. Also there's another one Mona saying "Can't we just talk peacefully with them?", even when she and Sagar are being attacked by armed men. These do work as "Unintentional jokes". And believe me there are many more.

Also the plot holes are so big you can virtually make Jupiter pass through it. For instance, the "So-Called" treasure which is lying in the bottom of the ocean is so mysterious that many people even doubt its existence and people who tried to take it out lost there lives, but our protagonist Sagar(Sanjay Dutt), sleepwalks his way through the ocean and finds out the treasure just like "that". Either he is a combination of Columbus and Sherlock Holmes or the director and his team of writers were too busy thinking about the cinematography part that they forgot about the minor details in the story.

Talking about the "so called" surprise ending of the film, the only surprise you will get is that you'll notice that most people are actually laughing at what had to be a serious moment in the film, "Unintentional Laughs" arise universally.

The second highlight of the movie is Lara Dutta, who is looking like a zillion-gazillion bucks, she rules the waves and many a hearts too. The perfect eye candy.

The cinematography is top grade, but under that glossy finish lies a decomposed chunk of wood, that is being eaten by termites and at the end what is left is that glossy finish with a BIG HOLE inside.

The music is average, although some notes are easy on the ears, but still considering A.R. Rahman is the music and background score director, the music is disappointing and so is the film.

And don't get me started on the script, like Akshay's previous outing "Kambakkht Ishq" the script is "Missing". Although at some points in the movie you feel like there's a decent script developing, but as soon as you think that, the director puts all your doubts aside and comes up with another blow up.

With holes that BIG, even the unsinkable Titanic sank, and sadly so does "Blue", but with the sinking it stinks too.

I go for * 1/2 out of five for director Anthony D'Souza's "Blue"

An opportunity lost, this film made me wonder why am I even reviewing it.

Under all that gloss lies a BIG HOLE that takes "Blue" down that smelly drainpipe which hasn't been cleaned since the medieval ages.

Watch it only when someone threatens to kill you for not watching it.
