We have already seen enough of this before.

As a full length review of ZILA GHAZIABAD, I really don't have much to say in details since it just reminds you the unexplainable, silly or over the top kind of commercial cinema we used to make in the forgettable 80s. Still, here is a brief description of its few scenes which would clearly give you an idea of what I am referring to here.

The film begins with a completely filmy entry of our negative hero Arshad Warsi (by stopping a speeding train), who straight away starts singing and dancing with his goons after getting back to his hometown Ghaziabad. Within next 30 minutes you have 3 songs including an item number with all seen before sequences dealing with rival gangs, corrupt politicians, a love affair and the betraying insiders.

As our positive hero, we are introduced to Vivek Oberoi, who is a teacher in the local school and is fondly called Master Ji. Now this teacher has pierced ears with silver rings and shows no hesitation to drink or dance with an item girl, shooting fearlessly in the air from a rifle in his hand.

Just before the interval we have Sanjay Dutt entering the scene as another famous police officer who is even considered dangerous and incontrollable by the Commissioner of Police himself. Now since he is a big star too so here also we get to see the whole Police force beating drums, singing and dancing with Sanjay Dutt in the middle in full uniform on a song sung by Sukhwinder quite close to the title songs of OMKARA and DABANGG. It this is not enough then we have another sequence post intermission, where Sanjay Dutt enters in the villain's den alone where there is a meeting in progress attended by all the wanted persons in the area. And what Sanjay Dutt does there? He simply calls Shreya Saran, the item girl and starts singing a song right in front of those criminals like a paid bar-dancer himself.

However despite of all these weird and unthinkable kind of sequences mentioned above, I would like to call ZILA GHAZIABAD as "A Completely Professional Film" in all respects since the producer-director have purely made it to run in the smaller centers (at the single screen theaters), for a specific kind of audience and the entire cast has acted in this movie just as one of their professional assignments to earn money and nothing else. Because what else can be the reason for talented actors such as Sanjay Dutt, Paresh Rawal, Arshad Warsi, Vivek Oberoi, Ashutosh Rana, Divya Dutta, Ravi Kissen, Zarina Wahab, Minissha Lamba, Chandrachur Singh and Sunil Grover to sign this film reading its outdated script with such questionable execution & an entirely repeated storyline in terms of content.

On a concluding note, the area of GHAZIABAD today is not at all like what they have portrayed it on the screen and there can be only one reason you can watch the film in your spare time. And that is if you are a die-hard fan of Arshad Warsi and cannot afford to miss even a single film featuring him in the lead.
