It’s that part of the year when the Bigool for box office’ good times begins, yes at least on paper. It means star cast, the director and the budget is concerned.
So what’s in store this time which movie is going to be the bar which others will be trying to topple in the coming weeks will be fine to see.
But sadly the start is not that great, not in terms of son father duo but in terms of anything to offer something new. To be frank ok it’s a remake of big star Salman Khan hit of 1997 directed by David himself but that was no great shakes it terms of quality and if after 20 years you plan to revisit a sin then it better be because your mind is in redemption.
What though will be interesting is that first of all a remake of a two decades old movie is being made by the same person who was Captain of that crap oops ship then and that’s a rarity and admiration for the directors longevity. Secondly, twenty years and growth not only in materialism but hopefully the craft which is even more important, how much it got enhanced with times or lost in translation will be what really is high in anticipation (trailer is any indication then you bet nothing has changed but trailers cease to deceive, we want to believe in this case too).
VARUN DHAWAN is the true blue eyed boy of the box office who hasn’t tasted what failure is like and hopefully he prolongs it as long as he can we wish. Comedy is his forte and add it with buffoonery King’s guidance then brainless wonder is what you are served but then not using your brain doesn’t mean it’s got to be in a negative state, that’s what unfortunate as most of the time commercial cinema and the best excuse is ok it’s pure fun with no need to apply your mind even for a second and then it’s all downhill.
The other star cast are like all know about them and what they will be doing in end so its better to enjoy their limited antics then write anything about them, maybe it’s better way of praising them is not to mention about them. As this movie is not made because the original one was a cult, that was a piece of gutter, actually Judwaa 2 is made because Senior Dhawan wants to give Junior Dhawan a chance to do everything on screen as a performer.
SHOULD YOU WATCH IT?
VARUN DHAWAN is like a magnet who will attract majority even if you resist he will make sure you don’t give it a miss, is his magic.
When you don’t have to if you are very busy doing nothing otherwise you can definitely go which automatically generate hundred plus crores but will it raise the bar or same old situation where sadly not the Hrishikesh Mukherjee classic but the Golmaal series is the substandard bar and its again on the EMPEROR to bail them out this time with SECRET SUPERSTAR.
