Neither music is exciting nor movie
30 September 2016 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Director Mr. Ravi Jadhav work is good. Problem is very convenient story. A foreigner girl, looking for a Banjo player, comes to India to find him. He becomes her tour guide to slum but denies being a Banjo player even been asked by her. Then some love angle, clicking pictures, a rival Banjo player villain angle, a Builder angle then some action drama at pre climax. Screenplay is good at places but mainly not up to the feel of today's time. It proudly flaunts repeated old stale scenes too, like girl asking boy that do you have girlfriend and his preachy lines. A girl with shorts and navel reveling sleeveless top still creates stir in Mumbai slum!!? Gone are the days, they are now more fashion aware. A careless guy transforms himself into a formal dress with tie wearing dude then again all residents are shocked to see him. Screenplay stuffs four songs in starting 20 minutes of film, sadly none of them were up to mark of a musical film, which title is itself a musical instrument. There was good scope to show case that how non technical but having music sense local guys adopt and incorporate western music technology but all this happens just in jiff with girl talking with her mother with teary eyes. Dinner scene is cute and balanced, calling a little filled wine glass as cutting was appropriate. Introduction of all Band members is also enjoyable. Most of the characters, even South Bombey music baron too, speak in particular double meaning lines or gesture it, which doesn't go with the mood of film. An old person is shown at so many places but only motto of his presence is to die in climax so ego clash of band could have been solved. Story and screenplay don't go seamless. First half is slow, second half takes pace but again dips badly till climax. Dialogues are good at places. Performance wise Riteish Deshmukh as Taraat is very good. Another drawback of this film is stone faced female lead Nargis Fakhri. Such type of film need good performance at least but she is same flat in emotional scenes as in light ones, even she is restricted in dance too. Darmesh Yelande as Greese is perfect in the character. Two other actors who played another band member are fine. Music wise 'Udhan Chhoo' is melodious.
