Quick Gun Murugun is a western spoof with attitude, featuring outlandish songs, outrageous melodrama and crazy action sequences including a classic duel in a traffic jam. The film tells the story of Quick Gun Murugun - a South Indian karmic cowboy whose duty is to protect and cows. When faced with a world-conquering arch villain restaurant owner who wants to create the ultimate McDosa chain using beef, Quick Gun enters into an epic battle of vegetarianism vs. non-vegetarianism that spans time and space, from a small South Indian village to an Indian heaven and then finally to a cosmopolitan Mumbai across 15 years.Written by

Happy to know that sense of humour is not dead in India!
This movie is great fun. Most people who didn't like the movie probably didn't get it. This was like Kill Bill, an homage in the form of a spoof. The director probably paid homage to the south Indian / Rajnikanth genre, where over- the- top is considered normal. Even over- the- top Hollywood is not spared (the bullet time references, although it was done in southern Indian movies much before Matrix!)
Possibly the movie was a labour of love for the director. We all fall in love with characters we create, then go on to do a hash job with the story. The director in this case has probably given a lot of liberty to the writer, and allowed him to take the character and own it. The writing is therefore good, the plot suitable. The jokes are really funny, you have to see them in context and really get into the movie. Every comedy movie needs a conflict. The conflict generated is not as strong, and starts late into the film, granted, but within this story world, it is adequate. And believe me, it does suck you in. Few other issues that you can ignore is that the set pieces and climax had pacing problems. I am watching this on TV, and even with the distractions of the commercial breaks, i am hooked. Trust me, if you were having some beer while watching this with some buddies who also get the humour, it is THE time pass movie to watch. I am definitely getting the DVD.
After this movie, there were some other good comedies that i can recall, "tere bin Laden", "Phas Gaye Obama", but this one is in its "wown league i say". The lead guy needs to get some kind of an award. He has played himself, spoofing actors like himself. Dr. Rajendra Prasad (as credited) must have really understood the concept and was perfectly cast.
Some of the jokes and the stylization could have been tweaked to make it funnier and more involving. Having said that, most writers couldn't have been able to create the no. of references to clichés and write these jokes. Even the obvious/ anticipated jokes make you laugh. "You are a Cowboy, do your job and protect the cows." In fact, if you change the tone of the movie, it could be a real movie released few decades ago by Tollywood/ Mollywood and later remade in Bollywood. ITs not a perfect comedy, none of them are. This one is better than most.
Please to note: for bonus only purposes: that Mango Dolly looks like Sridevi.. hot, not?!
My vote: 7/10 (needs more "elaichi in payasam")
