Go Goa Gone - Notepad

wogma rating: Add to 'must watch' list (?)
quick review:

Much fun and gore - a combination I never thought would've worked. But owing to some witty dialogue and perfectly timed dialogue delivery make Go Goa Gonea watch well worth it.

Plot Summary

Zombies in Goa. You should be gone, only you are not in mainland Goa, you are on an island.

What Worked

  • A shot in a dark room where only a lit cigarette can be seen.
  • Red caricature intersperses.
  • Stop action Monday blues song.
  • "Thank you very much" that sounded like "F*** you very much"
  • lime being flushed down the toiled along with the alcohol.

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

  • The "No Smoking" appeal by Saif Ali Khan. Started out well, but then he started hamming. Like Saif Ali Khan calling it "dangerous" and "terrible" will make it any more or less horrifying.
  • Abbreviation and Facebook talk - FYI, BTW and so on. - Lame attempt at trying to make film sound cool.
  • Thrill of smoking in a 'no smoking' area was a good concept but somehow was killed by Kunal Khemu.
  • Scene outside Hardik's (Kunal Khemu) office window.
  • Restaurant scene with Luv's (Vir Das) girlfriend.
  • Luna (Puja Gupta) has fresh lipstick on all the time!
  • Scene in which Kunal Khemu cries! How out of place was that!
  • The mother of all questions - how do zombies differentiate between zombies and people?
  • Why were the characters repeatedly walking into a group of zombies?
  • Why did Bunny (Anand Tiwari) not come down the tower instead of Hardik going up?

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.

  • Continuity jerk Kunal Khemu is wearing a ring in one scene, not in the next and again wearing it in the one after that.
  • Where did the group get change of clothes from!?
