Freakish Film
9 September 2016 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Direction is notably bad. Not a single scene has been shot in interesting way. I don't think that I will take chance to watch another film of this director. Trailer was promising but film comes as delusion. I appreciate the team behind the trailer. Story by director is simple. A good for nothing guy, having some extra merit to hit the cricket ball in air at any fixed place, established in just four balls. He meets with an idiotic extortion gang member after praying at 'Mazar' for work. Then he accidentally plays golf and surprises a coach by his unique ability to shot the ball. Then his journey begins of being a champion. Rich golf champion guy mocks him, then some match fixing angle, physical assault and final match with broken arm, victory with the help of 'Kawwali'. It is in the name of story. Screenplay is simplest and stretched. That 'Chaddi' selling scene could have been very crisp and interesting but it's too long with a stammering fat boy and his father angle too. Movie is full of such type of lengthy scenes. Dialogues by Raaj Shandilya are only good thing which at least make you smile at places but it also go overboard like screenplay most of the time. Makers thought that everyone is well versed with golf so they decide half an hour long climax based on golf match, which is very slow and irritating. Major drawback of any film based on game if you fail to hook audience in game and what is unfolding on screen. Performance wise only two are good. Nawazuddin Siddiqui as Ali is very good. Arvind Parab as kidnapped old person is too good. He holds his character graph in very good manner. Jackie Dada in guest appearance shines. Rest cast are just OK. Is there any female lead, sorry I could not notice.
