| No pun but Fun has no fun. Neither is Fun, funny. In fact Fun makes fun of itself.
Somebody said that Indian cinema is getting 'bold' with every passing day. Well that's not the correct word. Indian cinema is getting 'sleazy' with every alternate film and very soon 'soft porn' will be a new genre in film directories. Fun is just an addition to this list.

Sex, skin and smooches (or to put it more starkly… sleaze, flab and tongue-twisters) are stored in galore for the viewer in Fun. Fun boasts to be the first Indian film to be based on the theme of husband swapping and we pray this should be the last film as well. The director does take his theme seriously and makes sure that each lady in the film swaps her husband.

Natasha (Payal Rohatgi), an outgoing upper society girl is married to a criminal lawyer, Aryan (Siddharth Koirala). She not only proposes and plans husband swapping for her two friends but also stealthily devices the same game with her husband and another woman Megha (Hina Rehman), plus herself indulges into adultery. All this happens in the first half where the director makes all efforts to highlight every possible sordid detail in the film.

And like all skin flicks, this one too shifts towards the who-dun-it path in the second half when suddenly Megha is murdered. However the change of track from erotica to thriller doesn't affect the skin exposure quotient of the film.

Apart from what the film shows; what's more appalling is how it shows. At no point, the happenings on the scene can be tagged as sensual. Its outright cheesy and downright gross!

No matter to whatever extent the actresses expose, A 'Payal Rohatgi' can never be a Bipasha Basu A 'Hina Rehman' can never be a Lara Dutta But yes… Fun can (surely) be dangerous (to mental health).

The cinematographer of the film is completely focused on his target and never does he miss any opportunity of capturing the cleavages and belly buttons of the female form on screen. The background score composer, in an attempt to generate sensual overtones to punctuate the skin fest on screen, ends up creating 'ooh' and 'aah' sounds that appear more as if endorsements of 'Iodex' and 'Hajmola'.

If the director even had a tinge of aesthetic touch in the execution of his scenes and if he could balance the sex and suspense elements (he completely goes overboard with the former) in his film, he could have gained a slight leniency in his movie rating (though it still wouldn't have been more than an additional half star).

Only two words for Siddharth Koirala -'Quit Bollywood'! Aryan Vaid is lackluster. Payal Rohatgi appears bland even in her mugged up dialogue recitation. The other unmentionables of the cast are involved only in unmentionable activities of the film.

No pun but Fun has no fun. Neither is Fun, funny. In fact Fun makes fun of itself.
