turns out to be a light entertainer. I could hear people bursting out into
laughter inside the theatre and kept on wondering why the movie didn’t excite
me enough. In spite of my personal dislike for this genre, let me put across my
review without any bias. Can’t deny the fact that the movie’s tone is very
light. The titular character of the movie is Entertainment – a dog which was
named so since he was the only source of entertainment for his rich-but-lonely
master. The title is even justified by one-liners having mention of the
Bollywood Personalities, Bollywood Movies’ names and Television Serials /
Personalities. Digs at various TV shows viz. Teleshopping of Weight Reduction
Capsules, Serials with Family Melodrama are also taken. Emotional connect
between human beings and pets, the need to take care of the pets, possessing
the virtues of the pets viz. loyalty and courage are also projected. Logic, no
room for the same in this movie since this is how, it is meant to be – Mindless
Entertainment. This is definitely very much unlike the whole slew of comedy
films which we have seen in the recent past. You may enjoy watching this movie,
if you like comedy movies.
with Riteish Deshmukh as a host of TV show which is
into teleshopping of Jagtap Capsules for miraculous weight reduction and
showcases one of the beneficiary as Akhil Lokhande (Akshay Kumar). Akhil is
working extra hours / odd jobs viz. dancing, modelling, umpiring for local
cricket competition etc. and leaves no stones unturned for earning more so as to
take care of his ailing father (Darshan Jariwala) who is hospitalized since one
year. Jugnoo (Krushna Abhishek), Akhil’s friend, runs DVD parlour “Mere Paas
CineMAA Hai” and he speaks dialogues with inane cross-references to Bollywood
movie names, personalities. Jugnoo is completely filmy. Akhil’s romantic
interest is soap-opera actress Sakshi (Tamannaah Bhatia). Sakshi’s stingy and
greedy father (Mithun Chakraborty) challenges Akhil and tells him to earn
atleast a crore to get Sakshi in his life.
Johri (Dalip Tahil), multi-billionaire. The happiness factor hasn’t even sinked
in that a TV news flashes in regard to Pannalal’s death. Akhil flies to Bangkok
for Pannalal’s funeral and to claim his property. But his dreams get shattered, when he gets
further shock from Pannalal’s Urdu-spouting
Manager Habibullah (Johny Lever) that the whole property has been inherited by
Entertainment (Junior – a pet dog). An envious and agonized Akhil decides to
stay back and compete with the dog to inherit 3000 crores. Akhil along with Jugnoo
employs all sorts of wiles to keep Entertainment, the dog, at bay. They try
various methods to annihilate Entertainment viz. electric shock, seduction,
chloroform, poison etc.
1 and Dabbang 2 villains, second cousins of Pannalal also enter the scene so as
to claim the property of Pannalal. What happens thereafter ? Does Akhil keeps
fighting with the dog or he starts fighting for the dog against Karan-Arjun?
How does the drama unfold?
the star of the show is Entertainment, the retriever dog. Akshay has done this
in the past as well. Krushna is entertaining and is
noticeable. Mithun da and Tamannah have less screen time. Johny Lever is good.
Prakash Raj and Sonu Sood don’t generate hatred rather they are funny. Dalip Tahil is
seen mostly in a framed garlanded portrait.
is done in a total filmy style. Bollywood directors, actors, producers, TV
shows, producers etc. are part of the dialogues which is mostly delivered by Krushna
(Jugnoo). Certain examples: “I Rajni Can’t (Rajnikant) believe it”. Krushna
asks Akshay: “Kahan Chale Sonakshi Sinha Taan ke?” Later, when Akshay escapes
death, he says “Prabhu Deva ki Mahima Chaudhary thi jo tu bach gaya”. To cheer
up gloomy Akshay, Krushana says: “Itna Pankaj Udhas mat ban”. Soap opera actress
Tamanna’s one dialogue: “Humari Ekta humein Shobha nahi deti”. 60% of the
dialogues are in this flavour. Akshay also has this habit of back answering in
a unique form. One example of his conversation with Tamannah:
Mujhe line maaroge?
Pencil hum, jo line maarunga?
Fevikol hum, jo chipkunga?
Mujhe kiss karoge?
Imran Hashmi hum, jo kiss karunga?
is a scene, where Entertainment and various other dogs, ranging from Bulldogs,
Pugs, Alsatians, German Shepherd etc. show up in great numbers and sit together
in a luxurious car, is hilarious.
It is a clean movie taking dig at the very ‘Entertainment’ Industry in a
light-hearted manner. Warning for those who don’t like comedy genre, this can
be absolutely mindless!
