Luck - Notepad

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

A few good action pieces & slick execution of a different-interesting plot isn't bad. But there's no way to duck the god-awful dialogues. And just as "Love isn't good enough for survival", just style doesn't a good film make.

This page has additional observations, other than the ones noted in the main review.

Warning: this section has some details that could distort your experience while watching the movie. I strongly recommend reading this only after you have seen the movie or if you have decided not to see it.

Plot Summary

People with extremely good luck from around the world are chosen for a reality show with the sole aim of making money on betting for the survivor. Believe me, it sounds interesting here...

What Worked

  • The camel race scene
  • The underwater scene
  • The fight on the train.

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

  • Are women allowed to roam in capris and race camels in Pakistan?
  • Don't you need more height than 2000feet to use a parachute? Especially considering these people must not have all been experts.
  • How come all the participants know how to use a gun, to swim, use a parachute?
  • Is the deployment system of a parachute at the back?
  • South Africa has no laws against murder? Or gun shots?

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.

  • How come Imraan Khan and the villain's keep are exchanging introductions after having driven a lot away from th pick-up point?
  • Swimming in a pool with untied long hair - so not happening.
