A DOG who lives a man's life and A MAN who lives a dog's life!

Verdict

“Entertainment is the equally unfunny, illogical, headache inducing, tasteless counterpart of Humshakals. With very few redeeming points like the genuinely hilarious Krushna Abhisheik, this film leave you craving for some actual entertainment. ”

I'll be honest. After the first promo of Entertainment, I was actually keen to watch the film because Akshay Kumar vs A dog, written by Sajid-Farhad is something that makes me laugh. But as more material hit us, it became less & less funny, eventually leading to me going in with zero expectations. 

I came out tired, bored & hoping that the 2nd half was as hilarious as the first.

 

Pros:


1. Krushna Abhishek. Holy *** this guy is funny. He has the best lines & pretty much every scene of his is a riot. Star of the film by far.

2. Mithunda.Playing a miser, he makes the most of his extended cameo & delivers the right punches.

3. Johny Lever. Well, he doesnt disappoint too often & put him in an old-school masala comedy & he fits like a glove.

4. Prakash Raj, who does justice to his comic-villanous avatar.

 

Cons:


1. Tamannah. What was she even there for. Poorly written & barely there.

2. Akshay Kumar. Strange, considering he is the star here, but doesnt deliver the punches. He looks old, weird hairstyle & a farcry from the Housefull-2 AK.

3. Sonu Sood, who hams to the point of irritation.

4. Crappy music & the best song is in the end credits.

5. The dog Entertainment: Unfortunately, a film with animals should have them as the centerpiece but this one uses them more as a prop. Disappointing. 

6. Irritating comic action in the pre-climax. Just not funny.

 

All in all, at 140 minutes, this film stretches far too long. A fun start is derailed by a boring & unnecessarily emotional 2nd half which genuinely puts you to sleep after a point. Watch it from the stellar Krushna Abhishek if you must. If you have kids, I'm surely they will be entertained in good doses.

Director duo Sajid-Farhad have proven themselves as great massy writers but in their debut directorial venture, it becomes their undoing.

A one time watch at best!

 

One of the funniest scenes in the movie:

Tamannah meeting a guy for marraige & her dad Mithun says: Beta, tumhara favourite colour Peela hai na. Tumhe yeh ladka bahaut pasand aayega, uske daant dekho!
