Jackpot Goes Crackpot. ♦ 11%
16 December 2013 | by (the Entertainment Capital of India) – See all my reviews

Everything's a little strange about the latest venture by the man who gave us Bombay Boys. The cast, their performances, the plot, the title sequence, the twists and the songs: all are so weird, you will not stand a minute of any of the foolhardy joke happening on the screen.

What was Naseeruddin Shah thinking? After his JohnDay debacle, this is too scary for me to remember as a film he acted on. Sachiin Joshi should just stop. Just stop and live the rest of his life doing anything but movies. And if your curiosity for the film is solely based on Sunny Leone, I can't imagine your disappointment on her rather unimpressive show at both acting and flashing. The story revolves around a con work where both side of the parties seem clever, yet are dumb-witted.

Now what is Disney doing in here hatching a 250 acre plot to start a Disneyland in Goa? Terrible thinking of the writers. Cinematography is the worst thing about the film and if something does amuse you, the camera work will nullify it. Direction, show-shining, editing & use of songs are just beyond terrible. Nothing works in flow and thank heavens it only lasted for 100 minutes.

BOTTOM LINE: Spare your time & cash for this is 2013's greatest blunder.

Can be watched with a typical Indian family? NO
