Farah Khan film with her lucky mascot Shah Rukh Khan. Although the movie has
nothing new to offer, not to be seen with logics in place, very very
predictable plot, and a few SRK dialogues rewritten, still, you may like to
watch the movie for its light-heartedness.
is set for the World Dance Championship at Dubai and the movie begins with the
narration of Shahrukh Khan: there are only two types of people in the world-
Winners and Losers. And he takes us through the flash back about the story of
six losers coming together for a mission.
(Shahrukh Khan), Boston University topper, wants to take revenge with diamond
merchant Charan Grover (Jackie Shroff) for betraying his father Manohar (Anupam
Kher), implicating him, spoiling his business and framing him in a fake robbery.
Charlie had been following Charan for the last eight years to keep a close
watch on his every step. And then comes an opportunity to avenge Charan when he
announced to the world in regard to 9 precious diamonds being brought and kept
at his world famous locker – Shalimar Vault (which was originally made by
Manohar). And the same day at the same venue, World Dance Competition’s opening
ceremony was also there. Charlie plans to skillfully set up a heist plot
against the international dance competition scenario.
gets his team ready for the mission of stealing these diamonds with Jagmohan
Prakash aka Jag, an ex-army bomb squad expert (Sonu Sood), Temhton Irani aka
Tammy, a 50-year stud and an expert to open any coded lock (Boman Irani), a hacker Rohan (Vivaan Shah), Nandu
Bhide (Abhishek Bachchan) and Mohini Joshi, a bar dancer (Deepika Padukone).
Everybody had a reason to be part of Charlie’s mission. Rest of the story is
all about how this team of six losers plan the whole mission. How do they
execute the whole plan? Are they able to fetch victory in their mission? How do
they breach the security?
movie is funny in parts. Certain dialogues from SRK’s movies (DDLJ, Chak De,
Devadas, Don, Main Hoon Na etc.) are rewritten. Boman has done complete justice
to his stud act. Sonu, SRK have lavishly flaunted their six/eight pack abs.
Abhishek is good as Nandu Bhide though his vomit is unbearable. Deepika is
definitely ravishing with her athlete figure. Vivaan Shah is promising.
second half drags. Three-hour long movie seemed to be pretty long. Emotions /
pain don’t generate any empathy, don’t touch the hearts. Humour at places goes
overboard. Farah has tried to evoke sense of patriotism through ‘India Wale…’
number and a shayari by SRK towards the end of the movie which conveyed that
let India be a country of scams / poor people, still everybody’s heart has ‘Tiranga’;
but it does not seem to fit completely. Music by Vishal-Shekhar does not do
great wonders except ‘Manwa Laage…’.
the movie: AbRam Khan’s debut at the credit segment with SRK.
movie for just the starry element in it (minus logic).
