Movie Review - Krrish, Fanaa and Phir Hera Pheri
This weekend I sat on the couch catching up with a few 'extravagantly hyped' movies on local cable, namely Krrish, Fanaa and Phir Hera Pheri. Here is how I rated them -
Krrish - 5/10 - basically for 'trying' to make a CGI film in India and Naseeruddin Shah's acting. Starring Hrithik Roshan and Priyanka Chopra, this flick is a sequel to 'Koi Mil Gaya' ( I Found Somebody). Hrithik plays a double role - of Krrish the superhero and Krishh's dad - the retard from the previous movie.The action scenes and dialogues are as usual a blatant copy of scenes from Hollywood films like Spiderman, Matrix and Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon. Lesson to be learnt - average actors cannot succeed in the complex role of a disabled person without looking downright weird !
Fanaa ( lost in love) - 2/10 - for Aamir Khan's jerkish behaviour and contrived jokes throughout the film. The only redeeming part was Kajol's acting and the fact that she kills Aamir in the end. Most annoying was Aamir trying to put down Salman Khan by the jokes on the junior artiste who imitated the 'Radhey' character from the Salman film 'Tere Naam'. The songs though were singable. Lesson to be learnt - copying shayari as dialogue does not make a script !
Phir Hera Pheri (more fraud) - 4/10 - for Rajpal Yadav's facial expressions, the acting of the 'Gorilla' character and the circus sequence at the end. A sequel to the movie 'Hera Pheri' this movie is about the characters that became rich in part one being cheated of everything they own by a chit scam and their attempts to recover their money. I did'nt see the comedy through most of the movie, Infact Akshay Kumar was downright irritating, Suniel Shetty boring and Paresh Rawal repetitive.
Did you think so too ?
