Having read Karan Anshuman's review in Mumbai Mirror, I risked it. And whoa, the first half made me laugh. Well, isn't that a shocker nowadays? Siddharth acts buffoonish all over the film with his equivocal character. So is the character of Divyendu Sharma (PKPunchnama was appreciable), but his wit, sarcasm & shayris (short balladry) in short intervals puts him in the limelight. Together, they take a dig on many David Dhawan films, Amitabh Bachchan, Salman Khan & various other Bollywood related strong-points; they are both funny & clichéd. Ali Zafar is total let-down with his character emerging in the second half and still failing to take-off. Newcomer Tapsee Pannu follows every other newcomer and does quite well... what was told to her. But, she will need to put more dumm (power) into her chutzpah if she wishes to stay.
Supporting cast is elegant with Rishi K, Lillete D & Anupam K doing great enough to keep the movie going. Songs are powerful but the dialogs are not so happening. Editing is average while the screenplay just pushes it. The plot is simple but the edification is illogical. What could've been done rather easily, Chashme Baddoor lengthens it, but with panache to some extent. The second half is a juxtaposition of many hackneyed thoughts and compared to the first half (more of adult comedy lies here), is too boring & predictable.
BOTTOM LINE: You can risk it and have a couple of laughs to lounge this weekend because this year very few movies have come out which are worth watching, but I should remind you that this is tad adult and you may not want to take your family along. Overall, Dumm thoda kum hai boss! 5/10
Can be watched with a typical Indian family? Make a thought!
