Himmatwala Movie Review: What a lame joke!

If you are seriously planning for Sajid Khan's Himmatwala this weekend, here's a warning for you - Do not spoil your next two days. This movie has all the ingredients to make you go lunatic. Yes, I'm certainly not exaggerating as I mean it. We understand the need of funny, light-hearted movies these days, amidst our busy schedule, but this (Himmatwala) is more of a torture than any sort of entertainment.


Himmatwala features Ajay Devgn and Tamanna Bhatia in the leads and is a remake of the 1983 blockbuster of the same name, directed by K Raghavendra Rao starring Jeetendra and Sridevi. Himmatwala revolves around the story of a poor and wronged woman's son, who returns from the big city to avenge his father, a honest school teacher.

No wonder, Sajid Khan tries to bring back the boisterous melodrama of 80s with the remake, but unfortunately, he doesn't even succeed to do anything good for the film. Himmatwala is a 'BAD, BAD' film, which is full of over-the-top acting, irritating melodrama, lame jokes, mindless entertainment and a few awkward dance steps.


Honestly, even after thinking deep and hard, I fail to spot even a single positive point about the film.


I fail to understand that after doing such great films like Zakhm, Omkara, Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, what prompted Devgn to sign this illogical project? Well, let's come back to the point. Talking about the performances, I know I might get battered by the Devgn fans for this, but just can't help, but criticise Mr Devgn for making a joke of himself in the movie.

And, then comes Tamanna Bhatia. I feel, she's beautiful, but she's nowhere close to the legendary Sridevi.


On the whole, I would suggest, even if you get a free ticket for Himmatwala, please do not take the risk and give it a big miss. Honestly, I still can't believe that I'm in my fine senses after watching the nonsensical Himmatwala.
