Goofy, funny, film starring the most beautiful woman in Bollywood
OK, so this film is not a profound riff on human nature or a dazzling innovation in movie making, but so what? It is consistently funny in a dare-to-be-goofy way. Kareena Kapoor is clearly the most beautiful woman in the world (sorry, Aishwarya), and can be silly on camera without coming off as dim or unappealing. Fardeen Kahn is the perfect romantic and comedic foil for Bebo in this off-beat story. Amrish Puri is as good as you would expect, and he and Fardeen play off each other beautifully. The musical numbers are fun, sometimes sexy and sometimes too weird for words, but always entertaining. And isn't entertainment what Bollywood does so well? Lighten up! Have a little Kushi!
