UNDERTAKER!!!
5 October 2020 | by sharansrinivas-gSee all my reviews

I had zero expectations. Well, it's a Yogi Babu movie and I had seen Puppy prior to this. So, I didn't care about the plot or its inconsistencies. All I wanted to know if this Paul Blart Mall Cop-wannabe was going to deliver on the laughs. Gurkha does provide some good laughs. But, you'll have to go through a LOT in order to get them.

I can't talk about character development when reviewing a film like Gurkha but I can't help it. So, here we go... In any movie, a character goes from Point A to Point B. This is that character's journey as the events of the movie transpire. In Gurkha, Point A is Yogi Babu, a jobless cop-wannable with a rude sense of humour and no consideration for grave situations. Point B is Yogi Babu, a mall security guard with a rude sense of humour and no consideration for grave situations. Looks like employment was the only thing that the character earned throughout this journey.

I talk about character journey because there has to be some point in the film where the protagonist becomes serious about the situation. His so-called "lover" (played by a woman of the Caucasian persuasion) is among the many held hostage. You'd expect Yogi Babu to get serious at some point in the film. No, he doesn't. He doesn't at all.

Undertaker, the "useless and lazy" Labrador Retriever is easily one of the best dogs and dog names in Tamil Cinema. It was Undertaker who at times provided better laughs than the rest of the cast.
