Well ,a lot more could have been done & expected with 3 out of the 4 makers of Queen who handshake again to give this not at all “Shaandaar” ,lose script ,lost story ,unnecessary songs (just to utilize shahid’s dancing) ,out of the way pre-marriage song torturing the feminine & countering the male’s again..
I expected something fab from this movie ,but 10 minutes the start & I could barely hold on to my seat (although I did to justify the tickets;)) ,poor direction ,failing logics all through.
It encompasses a wedding sequence right in the centre of England ,beautifully decorated ,amidst two highly influential business families ,both of which are bankrupt (but unknown to one another) & wanna get through this marriage just to secure a deal & get out of bankruptcy.
The story ventured around the marriage events of an eight -n-a half pack abs Bobby (Groom) ,hating his to be bride Esha coz she being oversized & both unable to step out from this marriage “just coz of a deal” ,Esha being pretty loving knowing all the fancies & likes of her to be hubby (with the hope that bobby might turn around some day) ,winning up the “Sangeet with Karan Hamper” was sweet & lovely. Shahid with the role of “Wedding Planner” could be expected to get some better role than this rather than just try being an “Insomniac”.
Yes ,Both Alia & Shahid(Jagjinder Joginder) were Insomniac’s ,Alia(as she knew she was adopted child) swimming along the nights in the waterfalls ,pampering her Ashok (The frog) ,eating banana’s ,reading ..Well what else would one do in the starry night & yes having a combined dream of her pops aka Pankaj Kapur to find a person who could make her sleep (How romantic..Isn’t it :@) & Shahid well afraid of the dark nights but every times runs to do biking on the roads & with Alia from the moment both the insomniacs meet ..
Movie will take you to all night sequences (better suited for insomniacs) ,trying to avoid most of the day lights or ensuing animated versions or stupidity engrossed in the day..
Letting the family eat mushroom’s & muffin’s in the day (coz it was Tuesday in India & none could eat Non-veg arranged by the Wedding planner JJ) ,which created a deadly combo & drifted all the members to an elongated comedy sequences ,sanjay kapur (Groom’s well rich golden Bro)searching his legs ,Bipin Aka Pankaj Kapur chatting to his Prabha with this boot (The then girl friend ,who got separated coz of his donning mother when she was pregnant –& yes tat was the truth behind creation of Alia;) ). & many more ..All these funny sequences being recorded in JJ’s Lumia & he decides to show it to all ,this is when he tries to create tender moments between father Pankaj Kapur & Alia ,to let Alia know that she is not adopted but “so cool Najayaz”.
Being engrossed in all this bull shit ,suddenly “Mamiji ,the donning Mamiji” dies out of a foolish sequence & then suddenly all want to break the deal ,the marriage which does happens ,with everyone speaking up their truth’s in front of all ,Esha breaking her marriage ,Alia speaking of her being actual daughter of Pankaj,Their designer chachu acknowledging that he is a gay ,Panditji (in mandap) telling out that he is a commentator & what not..Huh ! As expected marriage breaks ..The Arora’s & Sindhi’s deal breaks ,Pankaj Kapur runs with his 2 daughter ,JJ & the captured groom (who doesn’t have money to buy his protein shake) & share his dream of JJ & Alia getting together as he is the man with whom Alia can sleep & same for JJ!!
Gosh !! That’s the end ..Well one thing I forgot to tell..Bipin aka Pankaj Kapur could draw his dreams cartoons who could actually move ,bounce ,dance like Harry potter films.. This was very absurd ..you could just smile & let it go!
Karan Johar made a cameo for Mehendi with karan & got 2 rounds played off..
That’s it guys ,this not-so-expected blunder doesn’t deserves more than 2 n a half .
Disappointed completely! Better use your day lazing around in the bed than to stick to your seats for 146 minutes!
