“If Bang Bang had more bang bang it could have been at least half as entertaining as Knight and Day was. All the action and style were utterly wasted thanks to a crappy, boring and unoriginal script. You have to be a Hrithik Roshan fan to enjoy it.”

First the good news. The Bad Muslim is back. After a spate of films with everyday non-kohled Muslim, grappling with a kahani that is ghar ghar ki and thoroughly confusing the poor cine goer, "hey aren't they supposed to be a -talaqing, swallowing a diamond to sacrifice for love, or blowing something up already", the Zoravars are back. Oh yes! And Pakistan, other than the Pakistani cricket team tribute, they threw in a Hamid Gul. Aww, thats really sweet.
Unfortunately there is still a heera, but no fear Danny's "Most Wanted Indian Muslim Terrorist" Omar in Indian Diaspora Land doesn't want to gulp it down in Katrina's love, just use THE DIAMOND, yup the Kohinoor to barter himself out of an extradition treaty. However the diamond has gone missing.
Meanwhile in small town urban sprawl Shimla a hapless Katrina is struggling with her name..HARLI? Ali? Hailey? Acha Harleen. I really didn't know what was harder to believe in #BangBang 10 minutes in; the Kohinoor getting stolen or Katrina's character being loveless. My guess is that Shimla blames her for their water problems; just in the first half hour she managed to take a good couple of long hot showers,
Moving on, her character narrowly dodges one smarmy gentleman (bank manager) to go bang bang into slimy over smooth operator who has apparently stolen the Kohinoor. Hard to believe? Well Katrina is loveless in Saadi Shimla and has to resort to Internet dating. So yes.
I liked Hrithik when he was in a cape climbing up buildings in South Bombay but this this .. Hrithik is fast moving from Greek God territory to that ill sketched Harlequin Romance book cover which is just a step away from gold chain Lothario territory.
And so the two dodge bullets, chew a lot of empty, vacuous beautiful scenery, to go bang bang into product placement territory. Loads of empty calories and wafer thin plot. Just like what they are peddling in the film. Most apt product placements ever, though.
I hated the film but not as much as Hrithik's character will Kamini Kat. He drugged you to take you on a Greece, Prague darshan and you? Also garam paani bhi khatam.
