To those of you who care about such facts Director Sohail Khan’s only other box office success till date is a movie called Pyar Kiya To Darna Kya. This one was a sweet love story between Kajol and Salman. It has a personal favourite song called “Deewana main chala” . In short as a director Sohail Khan did show some promise with that one before he went seriously downhill with one dud after the other. There were times when you would wonder if that was a fluke.
Freakly Ali in that sense is a bit of a redemption of the director more than anything else. Before you take your expectations sky high after reading this let me warn you. Freaky Ali is not a classic. It is more of a warm hearted weekend entertainer , as long as you keep your expectations in check , the movie surprises you.
The best part of Freaky Ali of course is the sincere earthiness that Nawazuddin brings to the role.His comedy is brilliant. Of course the writer deserves some credit here. Some of the humor lines are bound to make you laugh and you laugh repeatedly developing an instant connect with the proceedings.
The other good part about Freaky Ali is that the director has kept everything checked nowhere does the emotion gets too heavy. The plot moves from one story point to other with a reasonable pace.
The director has very intelligently kept the running time of the movie two hours and a well written screenplay ensures that this one does not drag at any point of time.
To the credit of the director none of the support cast right from Nikitan Dheer to Arbaaz Khan are great actors but they deliver adequate performances – though Nikitan Dheer seriously needs to work on his comic acting or simply refuse such roles in future.
Seema Biswas is brilliant as the earthy and protective mother of Ali. Asif Basra’s Kishan Lal chacha stands out as a cut above the rest as Ali’s mentor come man Friday.
Freaky Ali is the kind of movie which could be missed but should you walk into the theater you will not regret making the decision. There is a fair chance that you will walk out with a smile and some of the jokes will stay with you.
