Director: Siddharth Anand
Bang! as the name goes for the title so does the stunts
and action in the film which goes Bang Bang. The most-awaited flick
of the year starring Hrithik Roshan and Katrina Kaif is out in
Bang Bang releases in over 4500 theaters and will be a
biggest competitor for Haider starring Shahid Kapoor which
also releases on October 2. Hrithik Roshan and the makers of the
film claim that though it is an official remake of Knight and
Day, this is totally different for the Indian
Story Goes Like This…
Hrithik Roshan ( Rajveer Nanda) is on a cat and mouse race with
the villain, trying to protect the most valuable stone-the Kohinoor
diamond. When he meets the innocent bank receptionist Harleen Sahni
( Katrina Kaif) she falls for his charm and charisma and is also
fallen unwillingly into this cat and mouse game that he is
This encounter with Rajveer results in the on-rush of weilding
guns, bullets flying, ditched planes, car chases, bombing raids and
ends up creating a chaos. But as the chase begins Rajveer convinces
Harleen that he's the good guy, can she really trust him. Will she
trust him even after the bullets start flying? Will he succeed in
protecting the diamond? Will they live happily ever after? forms
the crux of the film.
All these questions will be answered for you readers when you
all watch it on big screen.
The film releases in three Indian languages Hindi, Tamil and
Telugu. First and foremost, when you go to the theater expecting
the same story in an indianised version with some masala
entertainment after having watched the Hollywood flick Knight
and Day, then it will be a big surprise for you all. The
reason being, Bang Bang is a total entertainer which is
just not the same like Knight and Day although some scenes
do look similar. However, I was totally awe struck by the makers of
this film in which they have shot.
Siddharth Anand has scored a ten on ten for his direction of
this movie even after giving flop films like Ta Ra Rum Pum
(2007) and Bachna Ae Haseeno (2008). When the director
said that Bang Bang is totally a different film even
though it is a remake, nobody believed. He said, “I can throw out a
challenge to people to watch Knight and Day and Bang
Bang… there is so much change in the story and screenplay that
you will never be able to predict what’s going to happen next. I am
ready to put my money where my mouth is.”
Today, it is very clear that the director is 100% right when he
said that. From the car chases to those full-fledged stunts that
Hrithik has tried out in this film, it is simply breath-taking.
From the looks of this chiselled actor one can understand the
effort and hardwork he has put through to make it happen. Action
choreographer Andy Armstrong of ‘The Amazing Spiderman 2’
fame has given the best action coupled with Hrithik’s dedicated
effort to perform such stunts.
Cinematography at it’s best, the locations they have chosen to
shoot the film is equally awesome. Music by Vishal-Shekhar is
already a big hit and are topping at chartbusters. Tu Meri,
Meherbaan and Bang Bang are super romantic songs out of all the
While Hrithik has replicated his dance icon Michael Jackson’s
moves in one song, Katrina Kaif is not to be taken lightly. OMG!
this leggy lass has given her jaw-dropping dance moves and has been
constantly appreciated about her dance in all her recent
The only negative point in the film would be the weak
screenplay. While the Hollywood flick had little glitches, we
wanted and expected the story-writers to have improvised. But,
unfortunately it has not been taken care of.
It’s very hard to understand Harleen’s intimacy towards Rajveer
even after he shoots her boyfriend, undresses her without her
knowledge, breaks into her apartment and drugs her too. He also
takes her to all picturesque locations in Thailand, Shimla, Manali,
Prague and Abu Dhabi within very short time. That leaves the
audience highly confused.
Except for this little flaw, Bang Bang is a full-on
masti, action-packed total paisa vasool movie.
Don’t miss the action on big screen people. Just watch it for
fun, Bang Bangis a total action-packed fun
entertainer for this long weekend holiday.
