Kam hai Waqt: Say No to Kambakht

A scene from the Kambakkht Ishq movie

Who said Bollywood doesnt expand beyond its formula ridden territory? Who said it couldn’t match the intensity and out-of-the-box film making of Hollywood? and who said that they simply couldnt make a real comedy post the Hrishikesh Mukherjee-Amol Palekar-Utpal Dutt era?

Well, whoever said would be damned to heaven! once you subject yourself to a great experience of watching this AkshayKareena super dumbo, executed by a maestro named Sabir Khan with tons and tons of money spent by some absolute fools, you’ll thank the almighty for giving you the opportunity to witness HELL in real time just as he presnted you with a live Swayamvar of one Ms Sawant 🙂

Not convinced? well, i’ll just give you a little snippet from this stupidest plot of all time: A watch, accidentally left inside Akshay’s stomach by a lady doctor (happens to be our dearly Bebo), keeps playing the song ‘Om Mangalam‘ every hour like an alarm. Afraid of getting sued, she plays every trick in her book to get the watch out of his stomach, and after a series of mindless, headless or whatever less incidents she manages to take him under water, where Akshay actually proposes her (yes, under water – how romantic), and inject him to perform the surgery!!!

Kambakkht Ishq movie review by surfryder

Tangri na khincho meri!

Dont worry, you’re up against more such mastery crafts that will blow your mind. Kambakkht emosssions — anger, frustrattion, helpnessness, irrtitations and a whole gamut of such dearies will soon convert into yawns, giddiness, khujli, staring at wrong places, and finally a self ejection from the trauma that must need a bout of Saridons to soothe the agitated khopri.

So, what are you waiting for? go grab your tickets to watch this cult classic that can give Tashan and CC2C a run for their money. and you’ll also find some thick skinned creatures such as Bollywood Hungamas who wouldnt give a fraction more than 3.5 for such master piece. shame on them. let them not spoil your journey. aaj ka shaam, Kar do Kamwaqt ke nam! [pun seriously intended]

Nothing NEW in this New York

The prospect of watching a film after such a long time was at first looked under grave threat due to a long wait for tickets (the fact is: Vodafone Tuesday one-on-one free ticket scheme). Finally the battle was won by wifey dear who held onto it and grabbed the tickets. The Kabul express memory was still intact, and experiencing another rare docu-dramma from Bollywood was far too enticing to overcome any torrent incited delay 🙂

But all such euphoria lasts as little as Pritam’s originality is!!

John was horrible and so was his team of ‘terrorists’, who were planted like crude looking landmines that never went bust. C’mon Kabir, what happened to your senses? events just kept rolling w/o any sense,  just for the sake of it. Irrfan, who tried to play to the gallery looked more like an irritating CID officer than a seasoned FBI officer. At some point of time you get a feeling that he even owns the FBI! Katrina does, what she does best — sit pretty (even when she gets shot :)-. the only saving grace of NY, if any, is Neil Nitin Mukesh and a couple of tracks that lasted till we reached home.

New York seriously lacks the ‘seriousness’ it needed to deliver the statement home. poor acting, lacklusture script, and above it all the frivolous attempt to punch the Bollywood masala to make it commercially viable clearly let me down. Such movies require a raw intensity, and Dir Kabir Khan completely failed to extract that out of his cast. A classic case of where a good attempt self destructed itself.
