Strong Points:- Arshad Warsi and Jackky Bhagnani comic timing was very good. Lauren Gotleib dancer was good.
Week Points:- Story gets dragged maximum time and unnecessarily stretched climax.
Critic Rating: 2 out of 5
Business Rating: 3 out of 5
Analysis:- Arshad is really good, as he delivers his trademark quips in his inimitable style, though at times he looks repetitive and disinterested. Jackky Bhagnani gives ample support to Arshad; his Gujarati accent is humorous and effective, but, even that feels stretched as the narrative drones on. Lauren Gotleib proves that she is a far better dancer than actor, as she sizzles in a dance number. Pakistani actors, Ayub Khoso and Adnan Shah, add dollops of delight to the narration.
What doesn’t work is the annoying background music, tacky visual effects and inconsistent direction (Ashish R Mohan). While Mohan’s attempt to recreate Karachi and the irreverent way its situation is portrayed is worthy of appreciation, his story telling loses all steam in the second half.
After interval the story gets dragged, leading to an unnecessarily stretched climax.
One Word About the Film: If you are Sajid Khan movies fan only than go for this film.
