Movie of the week- Golmaal3

Saturday is a Sabbath for me. I do a heavy workout and doze off the whole day. But when a girl calls you out for a movie with an accompanying lunch, you drag yourself out of bed.

Well Somu is a good friend of mine. Sadly all her close friends got displaced due to attrition, and she was in desperate need of company. I was happy to oblige as a knight in shining armor. Though I do not like Hind movies, Golmaal was supposed to be sure shot entertainment.

Well the theatre was packed with a jovial crowd. The condition of theatres in Trivandrum is unfathomable. But it’s very low priced and hence forgivable. Besides you get a chance to rub shoulders with nice, cute girls.

Coming back to the movie, there is nothing to review about. The first half was outrageously fun. Although I couldn’t catch the full meaning of the jokes, I got a hint from the crowd and laughed along. The genre is plain slap stick comedy. The movie is colourfuly shot. The protagonists, though jobless, dress always in their Sunday best.

Devgun (or was it Devgunn or Devgn) walks around showing his cleavage and as if he just stamped on shit. The third installment is nowhere compared to the first two and to be frank the best part of the film are the supporting cast. There is no skin show from Bebo. The dumb jokes from Tushaar is getting too repetitive.

Hats off to the director, Rohith Shetty. It’s not easy to make three hit installments, quite phenomenal. The Mithun Chakravarthy flashback jig was awesome and probably the best one I’ve seen. So is Johnny Lever. Rohith Shetty didn’t have a story with him. Surprisingly he didn’t mess up things and wrapped it up pretty decently.

When the movie started off there was a disclaimer- The animal used in a stunt scene is a fake and no harm was done to the real one. How nice and hip to be an animal lover. Strangely, the movie is filled with jibes at a mute character and at one having speech impediment. It’s okay to hurt a person but not at all okay to hurt an animal. What a world!

I haven't caught it as yet. I haven't heard any good reviews about it. And, you are right, our movies are so insensitive to all the people with special needs. Akshay Kumar has a campaign going on to ban the word "retard." I think, he insults those poor souls the maximum through his mentally challenged movies.

Haven't watched the movie yet. With the kind of reviews I've been reading, I have second thoughts!

We're all gradually becoming sadists, maybe. Where we laugh at someone else's problems. Wonder why they didn't have disclaimers for that! Guess we do not have many crusaders strongly opposing that as those who are up in arms for animal rights!

I take your point about the animal rights - it has becaome very fashionable to campaign on their behalf. I have friends who post every day about some raw deal that an animal is suffering! However they are perfectly happy to laugh at the mute or the person with the speech impediment - then they launch into the fat person, the spotty person, the ugly one, the one wearing braces, the one with religious principles.. the list is endless!

oh yeah absolutely. Humans really dont matter, animals however do :-). I suppose perhaps because they are more loyal to us :-)
