REVIEW:-Aladin Chatterjee (
Right so new girl in college Jasmine has our boy all sweaty and giggly and he would love to make her his but jack shit happens till the lamp turns up and he wastes two wishes on getting the girl and then un-getting her. And then he pisses away the third wish on her too! Now Amitabh who plays Genius the Genie is so bad, you almost gotta feel a little sorry for him. There's loads of overacting and when I say loads think of 16-wheeler semi-truckLOADS of bacon. And then in the middle of all this ham is the quite out of shape and haggard looking Sanjay Dutt as the Ringmaster. He travels around with his equally hysterical coterie of circus freaks who are part of the fantastical (ly horrendous) characters that parade through this film. Except for the masked girl playing RM's main squeeze who's got a smokin' hot bod (yum), jiggles about in a belly dancer's costume (do you serve fries with that??) and blows fiery (literally) hot kisses to people who rub her the wrong way.
There's some convoluted plot which involved the Genie and the Ringmaster and bits of the lamp and Aladin being the One and some comet whose shadow needs to be captured (yeaah! no seriously... I do wish I had been smoking up). Anyway the usual crap of Good guys win Bad guys die happens by the end of it. I couldn't care less honestly because all I was concerned about at that time was my poker game and the fact that I wanted to watch the song called You May Be which I quite liked... although maybe less now after I saw the torture of a movie.
PISS OFF ELEMENT:-
Waaaayyyyy too much overacting from EVERYONE. This might actually have been a mildly passable film had people controlled themselves just a wee bit.
Jacqueline Fernandes... oh sweet sweet Jacqueline. Wow what a good looking girl and with no disrespect to Sri Lankans, this girl is ridiculously fairer than most of her countrywo/men. Hell she could pass off for a white girl easy. Also whoever did her dubbing was just great coz I'm guessing this girl doesnt speak Hindi and whoever did the dub was mondo good.
*.25 - 1.25 out of 5 for Sujoy Ghosh's cinematic
