      Dishkiyaoon Movie Review - Hollow But Slick

      By Super

      Dishkiyaoon, the name itself suggests that one shouldn't take the film seriously! Sanamjit Singh Talwar heads the same way as Bollywood-gangster-films went a decade ago.

      If one guesses the root of the strange drama played in Sanamjit's head to make this flick, the answer may be his ignorance of a person existing in the name of Ram Gopal Varma, the man who created the trend of 'gangstar flicks' and even wrote an obituary for it too.

      But just like Rip Van Winkle, Sanamjit Singh Talwar comes back with an epic dud, placed in the same Mumbai underworld which is now non-existent, with a humanly impossible ensemble of stars who can't act. Harman Baweja, Sunny Deol, Ayesh Khanna, an over acting Prashanth Narayanan - yes, casting takes the cake.

      Actually, you can't possibly know the world in which such films happen. It is like reading a comic, but here things are not promising because it turns to be a boring comic. The film narrates the story of Viki (Harman Baweja), who narrates how he gets into the world of gangsters and how badly he wants to be at the top of his game.

      A film comprises of card board characters, Dishkiyaoon fails to impress. On the top of that, stars like Harman Baweja makes things worse. I don't understand why these out of the work actors can't take a break and read some books on acting and attend some acting workshops abroad? Why are they hell bent on delivering an artificial performance in every movie they get by chance?

      The screenplay, written by the director himself, has no proper emotional hook anywhere to make audience feel interested in it. Instead, it just drags and bore audience to death. The film ends up another attempt in presenting a slick film, without substance.
