After a successful stint as writers of Golmaal series, Bol Bachchan, Housefull etc the brother duo Sajid-Farhad debut as directors with "Entertainment".
For the last few movies that I watched in the comedy genre there has been a flaw, in the second half the comedy becomes a mundane caricature and there are hardly any laughs, the same flaw is pertinent in "Entertainment" as well.
Story by K Subhash tells us the story of Akhil Lokhande (Akshay Kumar) who is struggling to make his ends meet, suddenly has a strike of luck when he discovers that he is the son of multi millionaire Pannalal Johri (Dalip Tahil) who is dead. When he reaches to claim his fortune he comes to know that his father has willed his entire property to his favorite pet dog Entertainment (Junior). The rest of the movie tells us how Akhil & Entertainment fight for the fortune.
Well the story premise sounds silly but the screenplay by Sajid-Farhad makes it completely chaotic. The first half still has some laughs but in the second half the screenplay falls completely flat with mundane sequences and forced situations which look completely out of place. Overall the screenplay's funny quotient depletes in the second half and looks kiddish.
Dialogues by Sajid-Farhad themselves sound funny initially but it gets repetitive and starts irritating. Sajid-Farhad dialogues have too much emphasis on rhyming of dialogues, which initially brings some laughs but later becomes too repetitive and sounds jarring.
Hamming is passed as acting in this movie. Akshay Kumar as Akhil the main protagonist tries hard to act funny but is successful initially but later he becomes repetitive and hams incessantly. Krushna hams all throughout the movie. Johnny Lever still is successful is bringing some laughs. Tamanah Bhatia is the decorative piece of the movie. The two villains played by Prakash Raj & Sonu Sood add up to the buffoonery. Cameos by Reteish Deshmukh, Shreyas Talpade & Choreography Remo D'Souza are wasted. Mithun Chakraborty in a guest appearance has nothing much to do in this madness. The real hero is the dog Junior, whenever he is on the screen it is a delight but unfortunately the screen time of Junior is in the first half and then in the climax.
Music by Sachin-Jigar is nothing to write home about, rather the tunes seems a rehashed version of their previous movie "FALTU". Even the choreography by Remo D'Souza is average. Cinematography by Manoj Soni looks too artificial, what with too much of color being used in VFX.
Sajid-Farhad's debut does not create any impact and they come up with a below average fare. If you are a dog lover you may like the movie in bits and pieces but overall it is below average...
