Review - Cash: What a mish-mash!?

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

This is a perfect 21st century hindi masala flick - action, drama, romance, comedy, animation, song, dance, dudes, chicks and NO STORY! There are a few, very amusing scenes and the music sounds good, but the whole thing is very shoddily put together.

Wogma Review

Just because of the comedy scenes every once in a while,
this movie's ranking is saved from being at the bottom of the pile.
- Due credit goes to Ajay Devgan's timing and the dialogues too.
This makes it worth a watch, but only if you have nothing better to do.

Just because I have to find a new way to complain,
I'm wondering what we did to deserve the maker's disarray.
- If they were given a chance to explain,
Here is what I think they would have to say -

Just because this is an action flick,
Glitter, style and oomph is all we feed.
- good dialogues, acting is for lesser mortals,
cleavages and speedy vehicles is the hour's need.

Just because we wanted to get creative, here is what we did -
We started an action heist movie at a slow pace and we stuck to it.
- At times we used repetitive dialogue to make every point clear,
at others we thought viewers are sharp, as if they knew what we knew.

Just because we have a story board,
doesn't mean we have to have a story, you see.
- four long-haired dudes, boat, bike, skate-board,
and a brilliantly-endowed babe to each, where's the necessity?

Just because we have eight personalities,
Who says they need their own individual identities?
- they all have the exact same attitude: cop, anti-hero or villain,
and they all love to make their cars do a screeching U-turn.

Just because we ran out of money to make other things screech,
We won't cut the length; we'll use animation - ugly and cheap.
- the editor then, will earn his buck - lots of interspersing to do,
You may have seen it in Hollywood, but we do it with better ado.

Just because we have an audience,
they don't need orientation to any thing or place.
- whether it is how characters know what they know,
or who is where, to do what and is fighting whom on the show.

Just because, we had a few songs in store,
we had to get as many girls dancing to the score,
- for you we imported from Brazil an item number-er.
Why we left Dia no song, is for you to gossip-monger

Just because we made a foot-tapping fusion with Indian and misirlou,
we know the records will sell, no matter what we do with the other few.
- they come at regular intervals - exactly when one is overdue.
the dancers don't get groovy moves, but you will shake a leg or two

Just because this writer wants this to look like poetry,
doesn't mean she will stick to a meter or go on a rhyming spree.

- meeta, a part of the audience

Ashish Mehta:

ANUBHAV SINHA seems to PRACTISE for his NXT FILM in CASH itself as his MOVIE will be AN FULL-FLEGED ANIMATION FILM named "SHLOK"...

The use of ANIMATION, ek hadd tak theek tha BUT FILM mein kuch zyaada hi ho gaya tha [:P]....

Oh come on raj, if we really stop expecting stories from more than half the movies we generate, what is the point of making movies. Aren't movies "supposed" to narrate stories.


Action movies should at least have a coherent plot. By the way, Cash didn't even have "cool" action. It was old stuff repeated over and over.


Cricketers get hurt while playing a match/during practice. Do we stop complaining when the team we favor loses? It's a part of their job to get hurt.


In summary, I reserve and absolutely shamelessly use my right to complain! :D
Thank you for taking the time to leave the comment, raj!

meetu:

Thanks G, for appreciating the effort and Deepa for taking the effort!

Navin:

Deepa,

I come for the review
But the format should also be new
Otherwise there will be ennui
and nobody wants that, see?

In websites, women and life in general
There is a common principle
People come for the looks
But it is the content that hooks

meetu:

Wow, readers commenting in poetry ...
Questions, answers, and rhyming to the tee

Visitors dear, form or content - take your pick, i say
review you'll find for sure, without giving the movie away
