When I saw the first few promos of Jodi Breakers I was far from impressed. From day 1 it looked like a disaster waiting to happen. But as a professional hazard, I had to go in and risk this cinematic offering and what was the outcome?
An infuriatingly mind-numbing affair that makes you want to shoot the makers.
From here on, I shall refer to the protagonists as Booby 1(R.Madhavan Sid) & Booby 2(Bipasha- Sonali) for obvious reasons.
So Booby 1 is a professional divorce specialist who wears 3 layers of clothes while dancing in a pool with half naked women. He has a funny friend called Nano(Omi) whom he calls on for odd favours and such. He encounters Booby 2 at a bar and they suddenly become business partners. A case takes them to Greece where Booby 2 has a song named after her where she displays her assets. A misunderstanding occurs and they split. The second half is their return and them undoing a mistake which they committed.
The screenplay is ridiculous and is assisted by some audacious editing. Random cuts with random scenes mashed up make it an irritating viewing experience.
The best part of the film is the music by Salim-Suleiman as there are 2 good tracks and 1 half decent one thrown in amongst others.
Of the actors Booby 1 a.k.a Madhavan looks obese. It is appalling how a mainstream commercial actor would not get a gym membership for the larger good of the viewers. Seeing him romance Booby 2 a.k.a Bipasha is cringe worthy as she has lost all her sex appeal and seems completely out of it. The cast is salvaged by stereotype Omi Vaidya & a spirited effort by Milind Soman.
Director Ashwini Chaudhary provides film schools with a DVD of how to frustrate your audience. A film that started off with some hope ends with an intention to kill. Complete failure.
To sum it up, Booby Breakers is a waste of time & money. Towards the end Madhavan says a line which is apt. Mein khaane ke ilawa kuchh nahi karta. We believe you Sir and hence I recommend all of you out there to run as far as you can.
And FYI the battle of the Boobiest is won by Booby 1. Sorry Bipasha.
