Halla Bol - Notepad

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

Loads of improvement needed and possible in almost all departments. Barring a few sequences, the movie seems very superficial.

Plot Summary

A film star, Sameer Khan (Ajay Devgan), wants to bask in the glory of his success, but is faced with a moral dilemma.

What Worked

  • The dialogues in the first roadside skit.
  • The sequence in which Ajay Devgan goes to Gaikwad's house the first time
  • The swimming pool scene with Pankaj Kapoor.
  • The action sequence in which Ajay Devgan has an accident.

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 starting sequence - was extremely boring.
  • The arm wrestling scene - was very lame
  • The landlord flashback - was so unnecessary
  • The scene in which Ajay Devgan acts all teary-eyed - was so badly executed. Using glycerine would not have been a bad option.
  • How can a mother not know that her daughter has had a kidney operation?!
  • Marathi dialogues and attempt at a marathi accent for Gaikwad - failed miserably.
  • Darshan Jariwala's overacting.
  • The LIC analogy, I did not get it.
  • Exactly who starts the support for the Halla Bol movement and why?
