Once In, I So Horribly Wanted The Movie To End. ♦ 32%
13 January 2014 | by TejasNairSee all my reviews

I never leave a movie incomplete and this time was the most farthest I reached and controlled myself. 2 hours of torture about how old & lonely yet pretentious men fool around with skeletons in their common cupboard.

The episodic screenplay was something new from the person who gave us a re-film of three hit movies, 22 Female Kottayam. And it worked well as far as the screenplay is concerned. But, coupled with writing that is so dull in style & setting, the on-screen sequences came out like they lacked commitment. Even the five lead actors put up a poor show; indeed the newcomers have done a terrific job. Lal had a cameo and I loved him, maybe because he's a part of that only scene in the film which is worth.

Reminiscing the good old days and reliving has been showcased quite a lot of times in cinema, latest with 2 Harihar Nagar. Sampling the same technique and complementing it with the new-age, hotshot "weed" (drug) or "Idukki Gold" element as they call it, does nothing but overwhelm the whole point. It depicts something bad in a very bad bad way. Teenagers watching this film are bound to receive a wrong message.

Now I am not accusing the makers of anything, but it is ridiculous to mix movies with elements of nonsense/taboo that are, in streetwise laudable, but rationally improper and calling the whole mixture new-wave or new-age cinema. There is not a single point of newness in this otherwise goddamn boring film.

Music by Bijibal is good, but not happening as was the case in 22FK. Cinematography sucked, so did the editing. Unbelievable references from Dr. Dre's Beats audio headphones to the mockery of whole meaning of friendship. It was certain that the writers were eagerly trying to add humor, adult humor, slapstick into every node, but constantly failing. The ending is so shot to give depth to the whole foolishness behind, but if you look closer, you'll find out the real definition of ridiculousness and gimmickry.

BOTTOM LINE: A very bad film. Not recommended to any age group. If I were to change the title, I'd name it "How To Live Without Guilt After Committing A Crime!"

Can be watched with a typical Indian family? NO

Drugs/Alcohol/Smoking: Very Strong | Sex/Foreplay/Porn: No | Vulgarity/Nudity: Mediocre | Violence/Gore: Strong
