Is This An Absolutely Blah Week For Bollywood Fans?

There are times you have to deprive yourself from watching the latest releases over the weekends ‘coz it’s just not worth your precious time and money. While B-town celebs slam critics and say that their verdict doesn’t matter, I say it does because they really save us at times from spending an exorbitant amount on popcorns and junk food and help us blow that moolah on something else that’s much more constructive than watching a super crappy film.

Well, this weekend you’d rather spend your time going outdoors, soaking in the pleasant summer air and having a nice time with your near and dear ones rather than fixing your [email protected]# on a seat inside a theatre, solely because we only have a couple of ‘mind-numbing’ movies running in your nearest cinema screens.

Here’s a little warning for people who don’t believe me!

O Teri: The film is produced by Salman Khan’s brother-in-law Atul Agnihotri and is a mindless story of two reporters who ham and hop around like two hyperactive monkeys throughout the movie. It tries to highlight the pathetic state of politics in the country in a satirical manner but falls flat on its face. Also there’s too much mention of Salman bhai in the movie, even though he’s not a part of this stupid caper, right in the form of posters to ‘out of the blue’ talking about his movies – it seemed so forced, as if trying to massage Khan’s ego even though he didn’t ask for it.

Dishkiyaoon: The unusual combination of Sunny Deol and Harman Baweja kind of intrigued me. But this Shilpa Shetty venture failed to bring out the best in these two fairly decent actors. There’s a heavy overdose of violence, without the use of logic or a good story. The movie is like a person whose lost his bearings and is in desperate need for the right direction. It’s much better to sit at home and listen to your cat ‘mweo-ing’ than ‘dhishkiaoon-ing’…so not worth it.

Youngistaan: Just by opting for a funky and a cool name, the film doesn’t become funky and cool. A regular guy (Jackky Bhagnani) sworn in as the prime minister of India tries to change the corrupt ways of the country with his refreshingly novel ideas. Now, I’ve no issues with films being impractical, in fact most of them are. But how do you avoid the shoddy dialogues and the abysmal script? It’s like they are forcing themselves to entertain you…and honestly, that’s so stifling…

As I said it’s an absolutely blah! week for Bollywood fans!!!
