Will You Marry Me? review: Spare yourself from this film!

Director

Aditya Datt

Star Cast

Mugdha Godse, Shreyas Talpade, Rajeev Khandelwal, Muzammil Ibrahim

Watching this film was a trying experience for two reasons. Not just because the film was awful, but also because I had two children sitting next to me in the theatre. As one character (male) ran the streets in a bra, another made fun of homosexuals, and both spoke derogatorily about the girl they were trying to ''patao'', this writer felt bad for the kids who had to see this.

The mother, confused and embarrassed, kept feeding the kids popcorn and colas in the hope that they'd be distracted enough to stop looking at the screen. It wasn't her fault, this risqu? sex comedy has been awarded a general viewing certificate by the Censor Board. It's a perplexing judgment, to say the least.

The film is about three repulsive characters- the mainstay of Indian sex comedies-who are friends. Of course with friends like these, you don't need enemies.

Nikhil (Muzammil) Aarav (Shreyas) and Rajveer (Rajeev) are BFFs. The three of them intend to spend their lives committed to bachelorhood and running away from commitment. That's until Nikhil proposes to his longtime girlfriend. This rattles the two.

While Aarav lacks the guts to approach women, Rajveer is shown to be a smooth operator changing his strategy to woo each woman. What's common between them is a general lack of basic respect for women and a lack of sophistication.

By the time the film breaks for interval, the two bums have fallen for the bride's best friend (Mugdha Godse), and are lying through their teeth to ''patao'' her. So they swap personalities. The womanizer roams around with oiled hair, and the lame one is showing off a fake swagger and dress sense.

Meanwhile we get to hear a lecture on gutkha, via a gutkha don (Paresh Rawal). With the wedding almost there, the kingpin kidnaps the groom. Was it something his two friends did? Oh well, as if anyone cares.

The acting is bad across the board. Shreyas Talpade and Rajeev Khandelwal are good actors who're handed characters that drown their talent. As for the model-turned-actor brigade, the less said the better. Godse, is made to wear a bikini top and other skimpy clothes through the film, and to be fair, she looks fetching.

The one gag that uses old film clips and sound effects is the only one that comes close to being funny. Dialogues throws up gems like ''Statue of Liberty ki tarah kyon baitha hai?'' and ''Mujhe woh ladki dila na yaar''.

Honestly, this one was a torture to sit through. We suggest you spare yourself.
