Mastizaade (Movie Review)

News4u-Entertainment Desk- Sex addicts, Sunny Kele (Tusshar) and Aditya Chotia (Vir Das) cannot get ‘enough of it’. When the two of them fall for identical twins, Lily and Laila Lele, their lives become an adventure.

Right away one should tell you that Mastizaade is the result of a fractured script. Word in the trade circles is that this so-called adult comedy was reportedly assaulted by the CBFC! So what you see, in the current running time of less than two hours, is a disjointed mishmash of some stupid sex jokes, tacky in-house product placement clips, Sunny Leone’s tasteful skin show and two blundering idiots - Tusshar and Vir. Both actors should have realised that they have committed professional hara-kiri by being in here.

Milap Zaveri, who is credited as the writer-director here, is the guy who has written at least half-way funny comedies like Grand Masti, etc. and one would have certainly imagined that he would have saved a page for his own directorial venture. But no! Zaveri takes his brain-dead audience for granted and unmindfully dishes out trite, leaving you angry and anguished.

Honestly, this film looks like a better version of last week’s Kyaa Kool Hain Hum 3 because it has Sunny instead of Mandana Karimi. Otherwise, it is just as blah. No attempt is made at a screenplay; no one attempts to act either.

The lead players go from Mumbai to Pattaya, chasing one another in various states of dress and undress and mouth double-meaning dialogue. When they run out of those, they substitute it with crass hand gestures to keep proceedings moving on screen. Everything from a donkey’s b**** to a horse’s backside is used for tasteless jokes. Incidentally, the hero of this film is the humble banana! People are named after it, eating it or gesticulating with it.

Every 20 minutes, a song breaks. Sunny, who is on familiar territory, looks gorgeous as she parades in an assortment of bikinis. She has also mastered the Bollywood song-dance routine and gracefully sashays to Rom Rom Romantic and Hor Nach. Bollywood believes that if you have Sunny in a film, you do not need a script.Courtesy toi…

Revolver Rani (Movie-review)

News4u-Entertainment Desk- In a quirky twist of fate, Chambal’s outlandish outlaw falls in love with a wannabe actor. Will she surrender her sensational sins for love?

At the end of ‘Revolver Rani’ you come out shot by two bullets - one in the gut, the other in the heart. Such is the firepower of one crackerjack of a woman who preens like a desi diva (in metallic conical bras), cusses like a true-bred Chambal-ki-Rani, and fires more barood in the bistar than her toy-boy can handle.

Surely, no daaku clan can boast of such a fierce phashionista (dons designer wear from ‘Benice’), quite unattractive and scarred, yet,deliciously deadly. Alka Singh aka Revolver Rani (Kangna) is a dacoit-turned-politician who’s lost her seat to the opposition in Gwalior, resulting in bloody bullet baths. Her toy-boy Rohan (Vir), a struggling Bollywood actor, becomes her full-time obsession. He wants to use her as a step to stardom; instead, he becomes her sex-machine. Hereon, the story tragically turns into an ironic mix of politics, comedy and a love story with bleeding wounds.

Sai Kabir’s skill lies in his satirical story-telling and style, not so much the plot. The crux is simple - power, politics and revenge. It’s a combo of cool and crass - the kind of stuff pulp fiction is made of. Often textured in Quentin Tarantino style, he sets the mood with a notorious mix of quirkiness, violence and an eclectic background score. The second half is stretched, the songs interrupting the pace. Some dark, humorous moments (even the background score) are quite inspired by ‘Kill Bill’.

Kangna is pure dynamite, firing on all barrels. With a tanned tone, kohl eyes and mercurial moods - she uses every weapon to fire a mind-blowing performance. Vir strikes at times but his character is not as fleshed out; Piyush (as Alka’s *mama*) is superb and Zakir adds power to the plot.

‘Revolver Rani’ is loaded with a lot more than just gunpower. You’ll enjoy biting this bullet.Courtesy TOI
