Mostly fun if you can stop picking which movie each scene comes from
31 May 2013 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Okay, after watching Routine Love Story anything would have to be a massive improvement so maybe I am being a little too easy on Julayi but overall this was a enjoyable enough way to spend an evening. Naturally it is highly derivative and sometimes it is very difficult to ignore the sudden thought popping into your head of where you have seen this scene before but at least the disparate scenes were put together with reasonable cohesion.

On the plus side the whole film does not seem to take itself too seriously, it rocks along at a reasonable pace and it does not overstay its welcome at all. On the negative side some of the jokes are a little forced, some of the acting is a little annoying, inevitably the item songs took you completely out of the film, some of the ADR was poor, some of the actors cannot lip sync to save their lives and there is not enough of Ileana especially in the last quarter of the film.

The direction was solid, the cinematography was good and overall a not exactly taxing way of spending a few hours. However, it does illustrate how bereft of ideas modern Indian cinema seems to be as far as making films is concerned - it really is far too derivative to be anything but a pleasant interlude on an otherwise boring day. Okay Hollywood at times is just as bad but that is no excuse for others to follow the same path of lack of originality.
