Same old 'Twin Brothers' plot served again in a loud & unentertaining comedy.
Continuing his struggle to make a major breakthrough as an actor- producer (and director too), Ganesh Acharya comes up with another below average, inspired project HEY BRO directed by Ajay Chandhok that fails to make any sort of impact on the viewers be it story, execution, music or performances.
In fact the films raises a valid question that who actually approves a decent amount of money to be spent on such LOUD products served as comedies to torture the helpless viewers becoming a constant, unavoidable feature of our Hindi film industry. Moreover its really surprising to see the film made on an ages old concept of separated twin brothers (not resembling each other), inspired from the English flick TWINS (1988) which was also seen in HUMSE BADHKAR KAUN released in 1998.
The amateurish writing rarely offers any good funny scenes in this 113 minutes film and the songs too range from poor to average including the most publicized "Birju" featuring cameos of Amitabh Bachchan, Hrithik Roshan, Ajay Devgn, Akshay Kumar, Ranveer Singh and Prabhu Deva. Adding to the uninteresting proceedings even Govinda (in a scene) and Mahie Gill (in an item song) fail to deliver anything engaging along with the other key performers playing their respective characters.
In short this seems to be made with a vision still hanging somewhere in the 90s that doesn't work at all despite the help offered by many big names of the industry so generously.
