Aggar - Notepad

wogma rating: Watch if you have nothing better to do (?)
quick review:

We have a bunch of overactive crew members in the form of the background music director and the twists-in-the-plot writer. These are balanced off with underactive wooden one-expression-fits-all actors

Plot Summary

Aryan (Tusshar Kapoor) finds out that his girl friend is cheating on him. This leads to a series of never-ending events.

What Worked

  • The choreography in the opening song was good, but it looked like Tusshar Kapoor had to put in a lot of effort.
  • Shreyas Talpade's new hairstyle

What did not

Note: This section simply lists the things that I did not like in this movie. This is not the overall impression about this movie. Please read the full review here

  • Tusshar Kapoor has so many pauses at the wrong places.
  • Udita Goswami's (Janvi) wardrobe - hideous!
  • Aryan becoming all profound and all-knowing as if he is a psychiatrist.
  • There is a scene where Aryan wipes Janvi's tears because she has forgotten to wipe her last tear. Was the make-up so heavy that she couldn't feel it?

Nitty-Gritty

This section lists things that I think are not important to the overall impact of the movie. In most cases, it could be explained away by something like, "we noticed the glitch after the scene was shot and there were schedule/budget issues and thus we could not re-shoot it". I like giving the makers the benefit of doubt, but I am amused nevertheless. Hopefully, they will tickle you too.

  • In the shot where Aryan gets up from the bed in Bangkok. He is shown getting up twice. Highly unlikely that it was an intentional.
  • Isn't Aryan in the swimming pool in a scene towards the end? How come he is all dry in the next scene?
