    Verdict - Ab Tou Phaad Hi Daalo Poster

    Main Tera HeroWatch trailerRelease date : April 04, 2014



    Hai re mere 90s! Some of you may remember Kroadh (also a 90s release) . Amitabh Bachchan does a guest appearance and sings a heart rending ode to Mohammad Rafi "Na fankar tujhsa tere baad aaya, Mohd Rafi tu bahut yaad aaya". I was sitting in a cinema hall this afternoon for the latest Dhawan film. All the ingredients were there, the usual Qisas and Diyat Law of Evidence line up (Two women, one man) , a side kick who ends up being funnier, "do people really find this funny" humour, Shakti Kapoor, a hero who continues to have a pathetic result card and can mimic leading men really well, psychodelic colors, Anupam Kher, but phir bhi baat nahi bani. And you know why. Govinda tu bahut yaad ayya


    So we have Varun Dhawan who has all the confidence and self assurance in his delivery as someone jin ke Daddy ne kal raat hi question paper dikha diya ho. But he is quite likeable. Dances pretty well, and body of work(out) is for all to see on the posters. There are the two girls Tweedle Dee and Twiddle Dum who are quite interchangable when it comes to their miniscule wardrobe and micro talent and presence ...and as a significant portion of the plot develops into Varun's character showing Tweedle Dee as bait to reel in the villain to snap up Twiddle Dum , well it just makes the task easier. Ileana D' Cruz plays Twiddle Dee the object of the Aaap Ka Hero's attention (welcome) also the crooked police officer's (Arunoday Singh, poor soul) attention (not welcome). After making a brief Public Service Announcement about respecting women no matter what their size, color, and aesthetic value--Twiddle Dee sets to grinding to Raat Besharmi Ki Aayi. Hamara Hero happens to be the object of Tweedle Dum (Nargis Fakhri who plays a don's daughter) affections. It is not clear whether her affections are welcome or not. But it does mean that she kidnaps Twiddle Dee so the hero lands in Bangkok (well that Visa on Arrival policy had to help us some day). Anupam Kher plays the don, Evelyn Sharma  plays the don's moll (and must have the distinction for being skinnier than Tweedle Dee and Dum put together). 

    Most of the action happens in a resort in Thailand amongst a medley of songs, and a pantheon of deities. And my tears.

    Maybe there should have been a monkey?
