Why, oh why, does Bollywood clobber its fans with one trashy film after another?
Emblematic of this trash is Fight Club, the latest Bollywood infliction to descend upon us.
Released on February 17, 2006 in the U.S, Fight Club is a disaster from start to finish with its meandering and asinine script being the biggest miscreant.
The movie revolves round four friends Vicky (Zayed Khan), Karan (Dino Morea), Somil (Ritesh Deshmukh) and Diku (Ashish Choudhary). To make money, they start a Fight Club to provide a venue for youngsters to fight under controlled conditions. Before you can make sense of their zany activities, the friends are off to Delhi to help Somil retain control of his Crossroads club.
You see, a gang of thugs are after the club and have already killed Somil's uncle (Kulbhushan Kharbanda). Realizing they are no match for the hardened criminals, the friends rope in Sameer (Sohail Khan) as a bouncer.
Then there is Sunil Shetty as Anna, the biggest gangster in Delhi. Anna has just been released from jail after serving a seven-year sentence. The bad guys who are after the Crossroads Club kill Anna's younger brother and throw the blame on Somil and his friends. Their gameplan is to get Anna angry enough to kill Somil and his friends so that they can then take control of the club.
The songs - particularly Chhore Ki Baatein - are not bad but they are unlikely to set the auditorium afire. You are not going to be humming any of them when you step out of the theater.
Fight Club continues the trend of recent Bollywood films like Dosti and Rang De Basanti where friendship takes centerstage.
Fight Club appears to be inspired by the Ed Norton-Brad Pitt film of the same name. - Copyright SearchIndia.com.
