Movie Title

Review: Ek Se Bure Do

Director

Tarique Khan

Star Cast

Arshad Warsi, Rajpal Yadav, Anita Hasanandani, Govind Namdeo

It?s ironic how the title resonates with the film. As if Arshad Warsi acting beneath his talent wasn?t enough, Rajpal Yadav is there to romance a girl who looks half his age. Both actors clearly have commercialized their talent to breaking point.

You do tend to wonder what made them agree to this project. It can?t just be the money?no?it must be Arshad Warsi?s stubborn wish to appear as leading man (like in Kisse Pyaar Karoon) when he makes a rocking sidekick; or perhaps he was kidnapped and threatened? Either way, this film doesn?t do much for Arshad Warsi and Rajpal Yadav?s careers and doesn?t say much for their choice.

As for the film itself, the second half is somewhat taken from Andaz Apna Apna. Imagine the horrors of these two actors taking on the roles that Aamir Khan and Salman Khan made memorable. And Anita Hasanandani appears as Warsi?s love interest while her friend hits it off with Rajpal Yadav. Yadav meanwhile dances to the very many songs, lip-syncing to lyrics when he feels like, and doing the pelvic thrust-dominated dance regimen otherwise. The two girls are nieces of one Vikramaditya , who is an upright man spending his life doing pooja. Namdeo, who plays this stuffy uncle, re-appears in the role of a comical don. They?re all after a map that leads to a mysterious treasure and try outwitting each other through the film.

Comedy includes the two buffoons robbing a bank only to find that it stores blood; a cop employing juniors to spy on his wife who he calls of ?loose character?; and Yadav in a saree getting mistaken for a real lady.

Arshad is hugely disappointing even as he prefers mumbling the dialogue instead of speaking it. Not that the dialogue is worth savoring any way. The songs show you a close-up kaleidoscope of navels, bosoms and bottoms, till you?re nauseated. The technical aspects are sorely dated.

Take a hint from the title and stay far, far away.

Verdict: ? star
