Watchable!
15 May 2014 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Based on an original story L'emmerdeur written by Francis Veber, 'Bumboo' is a Watchable comedy. Its not hilarious, but not terrible either. A one-time watch!

'Bumboo' Synopsis: A suicidal photographer & a sharpshooter end up in the same hotel, with different intentions of course. Things run wild when these two form an unlikely friendship.

'Bumboo', despite some merit, needed to be funnier. Although the length is well-balanced, 109-minutes, the comedy falls flat in the second-hour. The first-hour is pleasant & even humorous, but the second-hour plays a spoilsport.

The Screenplay needed more wit. Jagdish Rajpurohit's Direction lacks finesse. Cinematography is below-average. Editing is sharp.

Performance-Wise: Kavin Dave is apt for the role. But its Sharat Saxena & particularly Sanjay Mishra, who come up with brilliant performances. They dominate the show! Sudhir Pandey is loud, but delivers. Mandy Takhar needs to polish her acting skills.

On the whole, 'Bumboo' is a fair watch.
