Ramaiya Vastavaiya (2013) - Comedy
Another star is born with this movie that is going to pakao us for the rest of his life called Girish Kumar to the well known Producer Kumar Taurani. The father son picked up two superhit movies “Maine Pyaar Kiya” and “Pyar Kiya To Darna Kya” and Prabhudeva did the needful of mishmashing them into one hilarious movie – where its very hard to tell if you are laughing “with or on the movie”. Dude in lead tries every possible trick of the trade to entertain and let me tell you this – if at all you care to watch it now – it’s a total laugh out loud movie with so much drama in between – indeed we had a great time watching it at home – where my kiddo laughed big time on whatever that guy was trying / doing on screen with his “Saif Ali Khan” looks of 15 years ago and we were just trying to draw parallels with those movies and predicting the upcoming scenes. They tried taking whoever they could for the movie so it could pull in some crowd – I guess the biggest of them all was the Director – Prabhudeva who himself does a cameo (Song and Dance) with Jacqueline Fernandes, the other big names attached to the movie were Vinod Khanna, Poonam Dhillon, Randhir Kapoor, Nassar, Satish Shah, Sonu Sood, Shruti Hassan (Heroine) etc. I don’t know the box office status but I am sure it wasn’t a hit for sure. Still I will give it an average 2.5/5 and will call it an average one time watch. I wonder what was the relevance of that title?
