SI ROFL. 😛
Which Bollywood idiot’s movie debuts on April Fools’ Day – Of course, our favorite buffoon Abhishek Bachchan’s movie. Who else deserves that dubious honor. 😉
Folks, Abhishek Bachchan’s new movie Game released today and if the critics’ visceral reaction against it is any indication this bloke better start looking for a new vocation.
Here are excerpts from a bunch of “Game’ reviews:
The problem with GAME is manifold. First and foremost, first-time storyteller Abhinay Deo serves a slick-flick that’s devoid of meat. It’s all about narrating interesting stories and how convincingly do they translate on celluloid, but Abhinay seems to be under the notion that stunning locales and vibrant/energetic action pieces compensate for a tight/cohesive script. Nope, they don’t!
I’m not looking for realism here but a whodunit has to be consistent with its own logic. In Game, anything goes.
Characters behave randomly and at the end, when you try to tie it all together, it unravels even more.
The actors veer between looking bewildered and grim and the only one who makes any impression is Kangna who brings some energy into this leaden enterprise. I’m going with two stars.
If you are the type who enjoys an Agatha Christie whodunit then you will immediately know what is wrong with “Game”. The pace is awry, you can see through the red herrings pretty soon, and the characters aren’t intriguing enough. And however old-fashioned Christie might have been, her whodunits never suffered from these flaws.
The film also suffers because it tries to juggle several half-baked themes all at once. There is a revenge angle, Abhishek Bachchan suddenly turns vigilante for a while and finally we move towards a murder mystery.
….the music isn’t that great and the director doesn’t seem to have much of a hold over his project. I suggest you concentrate on the other “game” this weekend.
The slowest film can have a heart pulsing rhythm. But you cannot make a murder mystery, that has promised to make the audience think, at the tempo of a fragmented art house film. Game gets continually stuck in details that have no relevance to the plot. I always thought the basic rule of a crime thriller was that if there is an unduly long close up of an ashtray then somehow it must be the murder weapon.
Of course, some of the reviewers may have had a good thing or two to say about the movie but their bottom line point about the movie is that Game is rubbish.
