Absolute crap but watch it for Sush
I was fooled into watching this film because Manisha Koirala produced it. I was so disappointed after watching Paisa Vasool and I am regretting my decision to watch this film.
The story is directly lifted from the Hollywood flick 'High Heels and Low Lifes.' Maria (Manisha Koirala) is a loner and a divorcée who has run away from her cruel and immoral cop husband. The only source of her income is a bakery which barely helps her make two ends meet. By a chance encounter, she meets the bubbly Baby (Sushmita Sen) who is a struggling actress from Delhi. Baby is having a hard time making it big in the industry because of her height. Maria and Baby become fast friends and the latter decides to move in with her newfound friend. It is then that Baby learns that Maria is being constantly harassed by the local goons who want to throw her out of her bungalow. The situation takes a turn when the girls overhear a conversation (via a cross connection) where a robber confesses to steal Rs. 3 crores from a jeweler to his demanding girlfriend. Baby decides to blackmail the robber into giving them half of the loot. Though Maria initially develops a cold feet, she agrees after Baby talks her into it. As the story develops, the girls find it incredibly hard to recover the cash as people around them start getting murdered. Now Maria and Baby must hatch a plan to avenge the murders and recover their money.
Direction is very weak. No wonder because this movie is directed by a first-timer Srinivas Bhashyam.The movie gets too boring in the second half and the director puts too many unnecessary scenes to fill in the length. The editor should've chopped off a half of the scenes in the second half but then there would've been problems about the film's length. Music is pretty good but nothing great.
I was very disappointed with Manisha Koirala. She looks fat and old. But I guess the story needed her to be that way. And also adding to her minuses, she wears spectacles throughout the movie. Also, Koirala should give up the idea of producing low budget films. The only highlight of Paisa Vasool is Sushmita Sen. Sush was the only reason I sat throughout this boring movie till the end. She was unbelievably funny and she was the one to look out for in many scenes.
I would rate this movie 2/10. Just watch it for Sush but don't expect anything else.
