Folks, the first serious reviews of Akshay Kumar’s Blue are starting to come in and the depressing verdict – Trash.
Blue is Trash.
What can we say?
Not one bit surprised that Blue has turned out to be unwatchable trash. After all, Akshay Kumar is the Trash King of Bollywood.
Horror shows, all.
Here’s what Indian newspaper DNA has to say in its review of Blue:
But even as Blue tries to emulate every Hollywood film in the action genre, it hardly matches up to any of them. It instead ends up, embarrassingly, like a poor B-grade film from the west. Bad Boys anyone? Nope, this one’s just bad.
If we were Akshay Kumar, we’d slash our wrists for repeatedly churning out shitty movies. But the bozo is not one to heed our sage counsel.
And what does the DNA review have to say about Akshay Kumar in the movie Blue?
More bad news here.Â Not good at all:
For the actor himself, the film is a new low. Every time you step in to watch a Kumar film now, you are expecting something nonsensical, but you hope it at least entertains you in the bargain. After disappointing you every time in his last – we’ve lost count now – few films, this one just makes you hope that he’ll finally realise that a film also needs a script!
New low for an Akshay Kumar film? What a surprise!
New low is par for the course with Akshay Kumar.
So, dear readers, in these hard economic times we’d urge y’all to think carefully before you splurge money on trash like Blue. After all, Akshay Kumar is a serial trasher (forgotten Kambhakkht Ishq, Chandni Chowk to China, Singh is Kingg?).
Think a million times if you want to squander money on trash like Blue. This is Money that could put a bigger smile on your children’s faces this Diwali, buy a small something for that special person in your life or provide a meal to those less fortunate than you. All money well-spent.
Money spent on Blue = Money pissed away.
By the way, here’s the full review of Blue from DNA.
And if you thought DNA was the only reviewer critical of Blue, you’d be so mistaken.
* Here’s what Rediff has to say:
It sets a new benchmark in squandering money and opportunity.
This film is an example how even with Rs 100 crore — the reported budget — worth of eye-popping gimmicks and stunts, you can make thriller that ends up being hilarious.
And that’s largely because of the ridiculous plot, the inane dialogues and plain bad direction.
*Â The review from Sify is as critical:
Spectacularly foolish and devoid of a cohesive story, the filmmakers of Blue expect the viewer to buy the ticket, munch on popcorn and be happy watching some Dhoom-type bike chases, sharks swimming indifferently and Lara Dutta in a bikini.
