This week, Two most awaited Bollywood films finally releases at the theatres. One is the rich good looking film Baar Baar Dekho & the not so good looking film Freaky Ali. But there’s very little to choose between the two when it comes to captivating viewing.
You know you are in for a good paisa vasool, when the protagonist of a movie is the super talented Nawazzuddin Siddiqui.
The film is all about Nawaz & he carries the entire film on his shoulders.
Yet Freaky Ali doesn’t quite make it despite his presence.
The story revolves around an undergarment seller with a latent talent. The man is quite comfortable & good with the game Golf. His talent is spotted by a caddy and there begins Ali’s journey from a Sadak Chaap to a golf champion & naturally winning the tournament.
The film’s plot had a lot of potential but some how it fails to inspire us. It ends up being a predictable filmy sports drama.
Within a few minutes, we can predict the entire story line & ofcoz the climax too. It lacks Novelty.
The actual concept behind the film – A poor man taking to a rich man’s game, golf and succeeding at it at that.
There are lots of unnecessary subplots in the film which result in becoming monotonous. Jackie Shroff’s entry could’ve easily been avoided.
The love track between Ali and Megha goes no where.
The climax of the film will remind you of old films of Bollywood during the 80’s.
The first half is entertaining but the second half has nothing to offer & only filled with silly jokes & montages of golf sequences.
Few scenes are long & badly edited. Sometimes the flow seems to be jerky & ending very abruptly with sudden fade outs-(
Few scenes talking about the poor vs rich clash are funny & entertaining, but then the fun seems to dry up.
The only person who keeps us hooked is Nawaz & only Nawaz.
Apart from Nawazuddin Siddiqui none of the actors touch your heart. Arbaaz Khan(Maqsood) is decent but stiff like always.
Amy Jackson has no role, Seema Biswas does her best,
Jas Arora is average and Nikitan Dheer is only hamming.
Asif Basra is quite enjoyable as the Caddy.
