Location – IMAX Prasads,
Review Rating – 2 out of 5
Recommendation – In case You have nothing to do and want to kill your time and have a laugh riot on the poor script and really poor sense of direction, please go ahead and watch this movie
Well as stated above, I happened to watch the movie as there was nothing to do on my part and was scolded a lot for not arranging the tickets in past two days. (un)luckily we got the tickets when we visited that theatre and my friend accompanying was more than ecstatic to watch the movie. I had already lost the interest in the movie as the Promos of the movie had hinted towards the INSPIRATION from a la Moulin Rouge. Well Moulin Rouge is a Musical Movie with lot of backdrop and lot of immense efforts been put up on the script and the direction. But Sanwariya loses out on both the fronts.
Well as far as the Sets are concerned, well they are HIGHLY INSPIRED by Moulin Rouge and also some part of script – when it comes to the role of Gulabji played by Rani Mukharjee. But the whole story and script goes for a BIG TOSS every now and then. Though the new comers do show a bit of their talent and Rani Mukharjee is as usually awesome in the entire movie, but there are far too many loose points in the movie.
Yeah one thing that is typical characteristic or trade mark of a Sanjay Leela Bhansali movie does shine in the entire movie, and that is the Glamour that is poured into the sets and the dresses of the characters. The another interesting part of the movie is the usage of RK logo and that way this movie can be called as a RE-launch pad of the famous RK Banner.
But overall if you are looking for a typical Hindi Formula movie, well there is nothing except melodrama in it. If you are going with a mindset to watch a movie that is for the love of two youngsters, there is nothing. And if you are going in to see Love triangle/quadrangle and family melodrama well that also is not there. Hence it is not for those regular movie goers.
Well yes in case you if you would have seen Moulin Rouge and you liked it, then well go ahead and watch it (still you wouldn’t like this movie).
My Recommendation does stay at the end that go out to watch this movie ONLY IF YOU HAVE NOTHING BETTER TO DO orelse if you like to see OFFBEAT movies.
