    De Dana Dan brings together the Hera Pheri team again. Hopefully this outing should turn out to be better than Hera Pheri 2. The story is similar to Hera Pheri (1), where down and broke people hatch a kidnapping plan, which goes out of control.

    Here Akshay Kumar and Suniel Shetty are good friends. Both are broke and both get ultimatum from their girlfriends to get rich, else they will be married off to someone else who is rich. Add to this, Paresh Rawal, a shrewd businessman whom wants his son (Chunky Pandey) to marry one of the rich girls to get a big sum as dowry to help pay off his debtors.

    The broke blokes hatch a kidnap plan to reach to their goal of becoming rich. They get the hostage and hole up in a hotel. At the same hotel, Paresh has his son’s wedding with one of the rich girls. And then as all Priyadarshan comedies go – hell breaks loose and everything goes for a toss ( equals to lot of slap stick comedy).

    Rating prediction: Critics (2/5)
    Box Office prediction: Hit (more…)

  • Review – Blue(2009)
    Caulfield | October 17, 2009, 1:12 PM | 9 comments | 0 views

    Cast – Sanjay Dutt, Akshay Kumar, Lara Dutta, Zayed Khan, Rahul Dev, Katrina Kaif

    Director – Anthony D’ Souza

    ‘Duniya Ka Sabse Bada Nasha – Risk.’ This is a dialog in the film Blue, and if you take out how much of the producers’ money was risked in the film, there is no other risk taken. With that kind of a theme, Blue could have easily been made into a great underwater adventure film with some risks (and of course some thought too). The people involved in the film were only interested in money whether it is earning it or spending it. After watching Blue, one can say that the dialog written above is wrong and Duniya ka sabse bada nasha isn’t risk but paisa.

    Anybody hearing the narration of this story would know instantly that the soul of the film is the TREASURE HUNT, and thus the film should focus on that portion more. But the problem with an underwater adventure is while you are under the sea you can’t say anything. So the film has to be dialog-less for that period of the film. Thus it is a risk to make the hunt the focus of the film, if at all the audience loses interest in the hunt, the entire film loses out then and there. But how good is to sacrifice the soul of the film for not taking a risk!!!!! Anthony D’ Souza prefers not to take the risk and instead of concentrating on the hunt, he concentrated on the bare tattooed body of Akshay Kumar, stunts, bikinis, vulgar humor and Kylie Minogue!!!!!! BAD OPTION Mr. D’ Souza. You ruined the entire film just to avoid the risk and thereby killed the soul of the film. (more…)
