It would seem that Indian cinema is in a downward spiral led by the desire of Akshay Kumar and Salman Khan to prove who is actually the worst actor in India and the most incapable of performing in comedy roles. If this effort is any indication to go by, Indian cinema is in a very, very, very bad state.
Good points? Well, Asin as ever looks absolutely gorgeous and illuminates the screen every second she is on. Paresh Rawal is also as ever excellent. Some of the cameos are good. Err, a couple of the songs are excellent. That's about it I am afraid.
Bad points? Way to many to list unfortunately. I am guessing this was an attempt at some slapstick humor Bollywood style but it missed the mark by such a long distance it is not funny (no really, it is not funny). Its a turgid 3 hours indeed when you don't even get anything remotely resembling a good laugh out of a comedy.
Okay, we all know that Salman Khan cannot act to save his life but please, can we at least get one film without him removing his shirt to show off his physique? Its getting boring... and honestly it isn't that great. Some of the action sequences are laughably bad (sorry, there was a laugh in the film!), characters are clichéd beyond the ridiculous, the plot is non-existent (more like a collection of short films that may or may not be edited together in a coherent way), nothing in the way of originality to be found and they really didn't even take the opportunity to properly use some of the great locations Thailand would have given them.
Basically a formulaic film to showcase the dubious talents of Salman Khan. The only reason it gets 4/10 is because of Asin - otherwise it would barely get 2/10. If you are looking for some mindless entertainment (or are obsessed with Salman Khan) then this might just about suit but there are definitely plenty better out there, even from Salman.
