Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara- Movie Review

Roochster

I had just seen the song Senorita and one dialogue where Hrithik Roshan is formally dressed and Abhay Deol says, “Arjun my buwoy, tum is the uniform mein the mantal lag rahe ho” That was what made me go and watch this movie. Was it any good? You’re just about to find out!

So, like The Hangover, 3 friends decide to go to Spain for 3 weeks to have their Bachelor’s trip before their friend Kabir (Abhay Deol) gets married to his girlfriend Natasha (Kalki Koechlin). Arjun (Hrithik Roshan) is a workaholic and Imran (Farhan Akhtar) works as a copywriter at an ad agency. They decide to do loads of adventurous things as a part of this trip and at the end of it realize ke ‘Zindagi na milegi dobara’ toh karo jo karna hai abhi.  

Ok here’s the truth. ZNMD is quite like The Hangover 2- Bradley Cooper- Hrithik Roshan (Serious and sensible, they even look alike), Zach Galifianakis- Farhan Akhtar (entertainer) and Ed Helms- Abhay Deol (the one who is super loyal to his fiancée and yet faces trouble.)It will also remind you of Dil Chahta Hai; only that was more original and funny. In this some scenes were hilarious and at the same time, some were quite blah! You’d wish there’d be more adventure and excitement to really feel it’s a Bachelor’s trip.

ZNMD lacks the “naturalness” of the characters, especially Hrithik. I personally felt he’s too filmy to be in this kind of movie. You know what I mean? He looks great but is fit for love stories which need proper proper acting. This movie is the type that requires the actors to be at ease and let the dialogues flow and not look rehearsed. I loved Abhay Deol and Farhan Akhtar. For that matter, even Kalki Koechlin and Katrina Kaif were good and did their part very well.

I loved the cinematography though. Superb visuals, especially the song where they’re in the car travelling, it is so beautifully shot I can’t tell you! Luckily there weren’t too many songs in the movie.

So, I thought ZNMD was just okay.

The Hangover 2- Movie Review

Roochster

I’d seen The Hangover and loved it, like most people. It was an awesome movie and totally entertaining. Did The Hangover 2 live up to our expectations? Did it change the common thinking that sequels can never be better than the original film? Well, you’re just about to find out!

Stu is getting married in Thailand and his friends Phil, Alan and Doug join him to be a part of the ceremony. Stu doesn’t want a Bachelor’s party, especially after what happened in Vegas but his friends manage to get him out for a drink and some marshmallows. They also are forced to chill with Stu’s fiancée’s brother Ted. The story starts when they wake up and realize they’re all somewhere else, hung over and cannot find Ted!

It started decently and then it became a little slow and then it became even slower and started dragging and when it was about to reach the point of no return, it got better, unfortunately, only at the time of the closing credits. So yeah, The Hangover 2 was very disappointing. There were hardly any funny scenes and hardly any adventure. Apart from a few dialogues- When Alan talks about an albino polar bear and when the ladyboy says, “You’re in Bangkok, there’s a reason they don’t call it Bangcunt” and also the scene where Alan’s raising a toast to the couple and says some really funny things, there’s not much to laugh at.

Zach Galifianakis who was hilarious in the first movie was just about ok in this one. Bradley Cooper looked great but that was it. Ed Helms is funny even without meaning to be which is nice. I also liked the mafia/drug dealer with a funny accent.

Overall, The Hangover 2 is not really worth a hangover. Watch it at home!

Rating– 2.5/5
