2.5 Stars out of 5.0
Bhola Prasad Tripathy (Arshad Warsi) is a cheater who has the eternal gift of luring women (rich or self-sufficient women) into his charm. He marries them and then after exploiting them monetarily moves on to another one. In the meantime, one of his wife’s uncle Chaurasiya, accidentally, finds out Bhola’s reality and decides to expose him. He then becomes a partner to the conman in the process, also manages to foil some of Bhola’s schemes and waits for the right time to strike.
The story is all about Bhola making woman fall for him and then extracting money out of them. Bhola has over 10 wives spread in several cities of India.
Arshad Warsi tries his best to keep things going and in his efforts, he is good in some scenes but the weak script really didn’t give him much chance to shine. The style and character development could have been better as Arshad Warsi never looked charming enough to be able to allure so many women.
Saurabh Shukla as usual makes things interesting in several sequences, however few toilet jokes in the script hurt his cause and made me nauseated.
There are many actresses and none of them has anything substantial enough to stand out, except Sara Loren, who did look beautiful and charming and perhaps for the first time in her career did act in some scenes. Her character maybe explored in a potential sequel.
The music is nothing much to discuss about except Chumma Chumma and that too only looks glamorous because it was picturised on Elli Avram. Although a far cry from the original in China Gate. Elli Avrram was presented in barely any clothes, showing ridiculous dance moves. I wonder what was the director thinking when presenting a dancer in an attire that can easily be termed semi-nude, which only made it difficult for her to perform.
Like many other Bollywood films, this is also very much a senseless story that can be watched to lighten the mood. Don’t expect anything other than that.
Fraud Sayyain is a typical Bollywood movie which is several years behind its time in this digital age things are not that simple even for a conman. The film would have been interesting if it was filmed in 80s or 90s.
Arshad Warsi and Saurabh Shukla are both experienced actors so they carried the film on their shoulders despite the fact the script had not much to offer. If you remove their efforts, the film falls flat.
If you are willing to watch no sense film with several good laughter moments and light hearted situation then you can give it a try.
Alia Bhatt reacts to Kangana Ranaut’s statement on calling her ‘mediocre’
Kangana Ranaut continues to take nasty potshots at Alia Bhatt who undoubtedly is ruling the box office at the moment and working with almost every major filmmaker in Bollywood. The resentment and envy are quite understandable. But, the manner of venting these is most inappropriate.
When an entertainment portal compared Kangana Ranaut’s performance in Manikarnika – The QueenOf Jhansi with Alia Bhatt in Gully Boy, Kangana snapped back, “I am embarrassed…What is there to beat in Gully Boy performance ….same snappy muh phat girl… Bollywood’s idea of a fiery girl, woman empowerment and good acting, spare me this embarrassment, please. Media has taken filmy kids love too far…stop pampering mediocre work or else bar will never be raised.”
Alia Bhatt, on her part, chooses to ignore Kangana’s seemingly endless barbs and insults. Says the genial actress who is never known to speak against anyone, “I respect Kangana’s work a lot and I respect her opinion. If she feels a particular way she must have reason to feel that way. I would rather remember how much she had praised me after watching Raazi. And I’d just like to focus on my work. Maybe she will appreciate me again if I work hard enough.”
Irrfan Khan thanks fans for endless support
Months after undergoing neuroendocrine tumour diagnosis and treatment, acclaimed actor Irrfan Khan has expressed gratitude to those who gave him love and support to help him heal through his tough phase. In an emotional note posted on his social media handle, Irrfan shared his thoughts on the prayers, love and blessings he received while he was fighting the ailment in London.
“Maybe somewhere in the pursuit of winning, we forget how much it means to be loved. In our vulnerability, we are reminded. As I leave my footprints onto these steps of my life, I want to pause to be grateful for receiving your immense love and support. It soothed me in my process of healing. So I travel back to you, thanking you from the bottom of my heart,” Irrfan wrote with a photograph that reflects his joy.
