Amitabh Bachchan.... Item Number
Harish Shetty
As the curtain unveils, the absurd song with red-blue-green-yellow colors starts to flaunt with absurd not-so-sensible lyrics of the song and then appears Amitabh Bachchan as an item role. At the very end of the song, he says, “I am not in the film, only my name is”
A question kept knocking me till the end, why “Bachchan” and why only Amitabh Bachchan??? A stunt or sake bone thrown to the audience. Offcourse, Bachchan in the title indicates the Surname as justified by his dialogue.
Ajay Devgn (Prithvi) enters as “Gaon ka Raja”, wearing best attires, long kurtas and jeans shows his glimpse of “Singham” chest which haven’t turned to blouse and the partial visible Shiva tattoo simply look fab on the screen and his concourse misinterpreted English makes you burst laughter and sometimes despairs for forced dragged comedy and it is the only reason that the movie is categorized into Comedy Section.
Prithvi, an innocent lion, speaks by his power, not by the game, trying to protect the village and her sister (Prachi Desai) from the brotherly gang of Saboo.
Abbas Ali and her sister (Abhishek and Asin) land into village to earn some money as they lost their property in Purani Dilli and while saving a child trapped inside a temple, he breaks open the lock of an ancestral temple but fate plays an important twist in Abbas' life as the whole village including Prithviraj's step-brother Vikrant opposes Abbas' actions but Prithviraj arrives and handles the situation. On being asked his name, Abbas's friend comes out with a fake name; to avoid the rage of villagers and keep them ignorant about Abbas’ being Muslim. And from this old social taboo of Hindu-Muslim, arise the conflicts and bags of comedy while veiling one lie, Abbas starts telling other lies that he also has a twin brother with no moustache.
The Archana Puran Singh comes into frame as fake mother of Abbas Ali. And when caught while performing Mujraa by Prithvi, depicts one more fake story of her twin sister who is mother of Abbas.
The thing which is least noticed in the movie is that Abbas Ali is shown as transgender and Prithvi dialogue “Kabhi kabhi to mard nille rang ke bahar dikhte hai” left a coated message to the audiences to accept transgender as part of society and welcome them as teacher in the activities they are good into.
Asin failed to act as per the expectations of audiences and seems carrying extra emotional baggage with her in every scene.
Prachi Desai, on the other hand seems pretty with lovely hairstyle.
Abhishek performed good in the role of Muslim Abbas where as he lost this way to carry he while performing as Hindu Abhishek.
Ranakpur is the best shown in the movie and being least highlighted in the movie, it was a new place to carry out the story.
The sequences in the movie are full of car smashing and getting parked in “Don Serving Style” in haveli. The gunda fight, sounds of exchanging blows tried to fill the frame with sound effects.
Ultimately, the best thing of the movie is screenplay where the aesthetic colors are properly indicating the Rajasthan and chaos among the villagers. Whereas, few things were really dull in the movie like the lyrics of song, the title of the movie, the old “Judwa” bhai concept..
And how can one forget the song of Himessss bhiyyaaa.. “Chalao na naino se baan re” seems like pathetic when Prithvi put his hand again and again on his left chest and beat it off to express the love in a “Mushtanda Romeo” style.. it goes like crowd was cheering it in the Cineplex’s while it is other matter that many of them left the hall in between.
At last, it was Ajay Devgn, whose acting saved the amateurised treatment of the movie with boring, obsolete and expected end of the movie. These types of chick lite movies are easily crossing budgets of 50 crores but at the end they lack a good script. It is time to laugh and say “Bol Bachchan”
