From the days of Sholay I have heard the funda of leaving your brains behind while watching any movie! But the director himself actually seriously expected us to do that and sensibly too cos, if u took it along your sense of indignation will crush what little of it is left!
The villain, (I am still trying to figure out how he sustained himself as one!) comes up with the brilliant idea that stealing the Kohinoor (Yes! The one and only one that sits on the Queen’s head!) would stop the extradition treaty being signed between India and UK! Now Wow! Must applaud the writer for thinking out of the box! Head! Crown! Whatever!
The Scotland Yard and Interpol are left befuddled and doddering in the dark as our hero manages to steal it and fly away to India! Shimla, to be precise! Why you’d ask! How else would he run into Miss. Bimbette, our heroine, a la Katrina! I didn’t know which was more laughable! Miss Katrina as a bank receptionist or a bank with Katrina as a receptionist! Sir traipses into Ms. Moppet’s boring world and zooms off with her to Prague and London and Greece! Of course it doesn’t matter that she was drugged and kidnapped half way across the world against her will by a complete stranger! The visas, the emigration authorities can all hang up their boots! They have all been rendered redundant!
Miss Moppet realises life is more exciting when you get to zumba in a polka dotted bikini with a hunk of a thief in an island far far away! But the network follows you wherever you go and Bingo! Next minute the Indian authorities are closing in on them! No problemo! Madame Moppet has discovered a dolphin gadget that will hop her off to safety. While our Sir has a springy gadget that will somersault him to safety with such ease and be the contender possibly for the next Superman series!
In all this springing Sir manages to teach Miss. Never been kissed how to kiss, while trying to shield himself from the police! Madame melts and decides to follow his noble life of crime than head back to boring bank in boring Shimla!
More James Bond gadgets follow that blow up everything including what’s left of your brain!
In all the noise and mayhem there were only two things I truly enjoyed watching! I thought Hrithik had done a great job of the dancing for that one song. Can’t have been easy! Secondly, a woman next to me was happily munching away at her popcorn. Her hand reached for the popcorn and stood midway when Hrithik took off his shirt! Power of the ab I guess! That kind of ab too can’t have been easy! Kudos and cheers to the star for bringing happiness to women in ways that can’t be described.
On a happy note, it was drool-worthy and I am truly over Clooney!
