I must admit that I was pleasantly surprised by some of the visuals in the trailer--a collapsing, long bridge, a huge waterfall, one of the shots with a parachute coming down. Of course, a lot of the other stuff is expectedly tacky CGI, especially the animals. Even so, I am hoping for some more of the former to balance the shoddy digital work.
And then with this series, you can also expect some laughs even if we are cringing at the slapstickiness of it all, during the rest of the film. The trailer does make one hope at least with some of Jaaved Jaaferi and Madhuri Dixit’s comic timing and some of the concepts like the rickshaw-helicopter and the IVR (Interactive Voice Response) system. However, these things have the huge onus of tipping the balance away from the over-acting demanded of the cast, especially Anil Kapoor and Madhuri Dixit.
All this while being fully aware that such balance might just be too much to ask for.
