The first half of the year 2009 shall be always remembered as the worst in terms of content for the Bollywood films released in this period. Just when we thought you can"t get more bad films than what we were subjected since last few weeks – Lottery, Kisse Pyar Karu etc, here comes the long stuck in the cans – Ek Se Bure Do.
This apology of a film as its name suggest is literally double trouble. The makers have tried to en cash on the ensemble cast of character actors who have most of the time left the audiences impressed but forgot to add a good plot. The film is an attempted comedy of errors as two crooks played by Arshad Warsi and Rajpal Yadav create chaos leading more trouble for the audience and the film"s characters alike. The two heroines Natassha aka Anita Hassanandani of Ekta Kapoor"s serials fame and the other new comer Tussha are portrayed as dimwit babes whom our heroes shown flirting with. Adding to the existing chaos are Govind Namdeo, Vijay Raaz (in good form yet again), Yashpal Sharma and Snehal Dhabi who complicate it all further. The proceedings get so irritating after a point of time that you wish to stage a walk out. Bad production values, jarring music, non-existent direction and script, tasteless dialogues you name it and you get it all in this pathetic film. Agreed the film is aimed at the masses but even they will give a thumbs down to such idiotic entertainer. The only thing you perhaps remember is the hot item song shot on dusky beauty Brinda Parekh.
It seems Arshad must have signed this film quick in the wake of his Munnabhai MBBS success as he finally got a leading man offer in this one. But now as years have passed he too must have realized its no point promoting this film. As we see the film we realize why Arshad and even Rajpal Yadav (who for the second time after Rama Rama Kya Hai Ye Drama seems to have been given the lead role) were embarrassed to promote this film. Natassha with her over the top acting makes us hope she remains trapped in the idiot box and doesn"t appear on the big screen. Tussha is just about passable. Amongst the huge horde of character artists the only ones to impress are Vijay Raaz and Snehal Dhabi. Rest all simply shriek in the name of comedy.
Just don"t even dare to think of wasting your precious time, money and energy on this one.
