Ajab Gazabb Love (2012) - Comedy

The day Jacky Bhagnani’s first movie “Faltu” came – it made me realize that another “Uday Chopra” was born that day. All his movies will have a tag line in big bold silver letters saying “My Dad is Vashu Bhagnani and we can buy any Director to make a movie for me”. Imagine for this movie they actually hired Sanjay Gadhvi – the same guy who gave us fantastic movies like “Dhoom” and “Dhoom 2” and what a disaster this one turns out to be. More than entertainment it shocks you with its cast, story, songs, handling and almost everything associated with the movie is total crap. Imagine this for the starters – his royal entry into the movie right after all the characters are self introduced – he walks in showing his 8 packs with 4 Ferrari’s parked on each side with 4 bikini babes each side dancing in front of them – WOW – what else one wants with a dad like that. Still, the freaking movie and story goes nowhere – he and the rest of the idiots in the movie (Will call them that for signing a movie with him in lead) try to put their best foot forward to make this work yet – it was destined to sink without a trace and I guess that’s exactly what happened to this one. Still, his next will be ready for a royal release in couple of months, if I am not wrong. 

Nidhi Subbaiah
The Movie: Same old story of a girl who hates rich guys, so our Rich dude who drives a range rover becomes a poor guy, immediately she falls in love and wants to meet his poor family, he ends up renting a house in some slum to impress her, she wants to meet his family, finally everyone in his family including the super rich dad agrees. His super rich dad becomes a banana seller and learns a lesson himself, starts donating 30% of his income for poor people. In the meantime comes the twist in the tale as we could predict it – in the form of a Rich brother who has a twin – again they too are super rich like rich guys dad and all. A couple of turns and twists and some idiotic comic scenes later they all happily agree and let them marry. WOW – what a story and what a class movie from one of the best Directors who has lost the plot entirely. I mean, movies like this prove it again and again that with money you can definitely hire talented people but again they end up making a joke of themselves to regret later that why did they even sign in the very first place. I am sure talented actors like Arjun Rampal, Arshad Warsi, Darshan Zariwala, over the top Kirron Kher – they all are wasted big time in such a crappy movie. The South Indian hottie who I guess makes a Hindi movie debut won’t even find a mention in my short review. I seriously hope they learn a lesson and this guy goes in production side or else will end up being a loser like Yash Chopra’s son Uday Chopra.

Jacky, Director Sanjay Gadhvi and DC Avanti
The Car: Another person who will be highly disappointed with the failure of this movie will be the acclaimed Indian Car (Re) Designer Dilip Chhabria better known as DC. Its very unfortunate that he chose this movie to launch his acclaimed car DC Avanti – the one in the Picture. As the story in the movie goes the rich guy’s son designs a “Dream Car” and they call it “DC”. I don’t know why but they did use almost all the cars that one can name off in the movie barring their own car which he designs so passionately and is very keen on making it a grand success. A first of its own kinds sports car made in India for Indians. Again its Mr. Bhagnani’s money that plays the game here but never works, the comedy doesn’t makes you laugh, cinematography at best I will call it average as they don’t take us anywhere we haven’t gone in past. Even with so many cars on board – hired for the movie – there isn’t one that you will remember as soon as you are done with the movie – let alone the car that they design as it suddenly vanishes from the story and never comes back. I so much looked forward to see if they are actually going to drive it in the end may be. Naah! They don’t do that, I guess DC just allowed them to show it on screen and never allowed them to touch it or start it – let alone driving it. The fate of the actual car is yet to be seen – hope it doesn’t bites the dust like the movie does.
