‘Flop Show’ GHANCHAKKAR movie review .




Sanjay Atre (Emraan Hashmi) a long haired guy who mostly wears a red colored polka dotted dress gifted by his wife. His wife, Nitu (Vidya Balan) is a panjabi housewife who’s fashion sense is so bizarre that she actually wore pair of pointy horns in her head. Who on earth won’t like such interesting character ? But sadly I was that person to hate them. Why? Because of the childish plot of this film. 

Emraan Hashmi is in two minds about getting involved in a bank robbery. Ultimately, he gives in and helps Pandit (Rajesh Sharma) and Idrees (Namit Das) to loot Rs. 30 crore from a bank. It is decided to share the spoils after three months. Sanjay is given the responsibility of keeping the crores in safe custody for the three months. However, to the dismay of Pandit and Idrees, Sanjay has a memory loss in the intervening three months so that he can’t remember anything about Pandit and Idrees, about the bank robbery, and, therefore, about where he has kept the suitcase containing the cash.

After here the film becomes repetitve. Frustration sets in during the film’s flabby middle portion where nothing much really happens. The angry goons want their money…Sanju can’t remember a thing…He chases clues that lead nowhere…They bash the living daylights out of him. This routine is repeated over and over again till the line: “Paise kahan hain?” becomes embedded in your brain like a pesky metal chip! And well before it’s ultimately revealed in the film’s climax, you’ve guessed the suspense already.

But what gave this film a little sunlight is it’s actors. Emraan Hashmi plays his character ably and proves that he can act in any type of character. Namit Das and Rajesh Sharma are both praise able and knows what they are doing. But it is Vidya Balan who glues all of them and there are some of her scenes where I laughed out loud. 

Nevertheless this film walks the right path but lost’s it’s path in the middle and goes no where which is actually a bummer. Because this film is filled with enormous talents. I’m going with one and a half stars though you can go to the theater just for Vidya Balan and a lovely Neetu.
