Intellectual Rubbish
22 August 2008 | by gocam20See all my reviews

A very Bad remake of a Very good Mel Brooks comedy To Be Or Not To Be.

The movie has tried to be very Intellectual but is a a pure Rubbish. Using Bombay serial blasts as a backdrop for the plot the movie tries to show a nexus between Politics, Police, Underworld and Bollywood thru comedy. They have also tried to emphasize that any cultural censorship is the bed rock of decent, quoting "Where one burns books, one will soon burn people." –Heinrich Heine

In a fictitious town of St Louis ( how unimaginative ) of Goa a group of theater actors are recruited to intercept a consignment of RDX which is suppose to be used in Bombay serial Blasts. This is would be very insulting to the families of the blast victims. Imagine a comedy made about 9/11.

The promoters of the film may point out that in the original Hitler was the nemesis but the context was entirely different. And in their lies the difference.

What a waste of such talented bunch of actors.
