“ Go Goa Gone is a particularly unique comedy with a fresh take on Goa, friendship and love. The introduction of Zombies into Bollywood couldn't have been better. Superb acting, a crisp script and hilarious dialogues make it a must watch.”

A brom-com with zoms, Go Goa Gone is a maddening trip that’s unlike any trips Bollywood has previously taken. Kunal Khemu and Vir Das play Luv and Hardik and are stalwarts here, with Saif’s blonde-dyed character Boris having much more spunk than his glares. There’s the terrific Anand Tiwari too, battling the lunacy of Luv and Hardik, but not becoming the best friend who ends up as the zombie-slaughter.
The film is funnier than what it seems. And a lot of it also has to with the consistency in the characters. Khemu is a knock-out of a doper. He jumps off the building when his boss is on the prowl, plasters his room with a poster of self with Marely-esque colors, digs the bin for stuff when Vir Das goes out on a detoxing drive - Khemu robs the show with self-authored lines.
GGG carefully doesn’t tread the dark-side-of-the-world territory and is conscious of its satirical self. Neither does it become acutely gory, but takes pride in innovatively making use of umbrellas, flashlights and rocket-launchers. Even at its scariest, the film restricts its worldview, never even once over-analyzing. In fact, this is a film that trivializes and has too much fun in doing so.
GGG is a multi-level game-changer. Not only will dancing-behind-the-trees take a new meaning altogether, Goan escapades will be told with an entirely new, and twisted trajectory. Saif Ali Khan, the Delhi-bred Russian is trippy as the zombie-hunter and I found some homo-erotic shades between his and co-hunter Nicolas’ character. But like he himself philosophizes, once infected, brother-sister or mother, you ought to be keeled.
The film, like a good old zombie’s meandering movements, has many forms within its narrative universe. It becomes a satire, a social commentary and above all, a zom-brom-com for this generation’s celebrated ludicrousness.
When the mad-ass party organized by a pseudo Russian mafia goes brutally out of hand, there’s more to see than what matches the eye. Instead of some viral injection being the trigger, the inflow of zombies is introduced by a neat epidemic prompted by a peculiar, blue-colored drug bought by the Russian Mafia. Clean, easy and free of over-explanation. Science can shove its foolhardiness in its dingy laboratories. Either ways, nobody knows what could activate a zombie-apocalypse. So it might as well as be an over-zealous drug that makes a Hannibal out of you. Without all that smartness.
If one tries to look deeper, GGG maybe something more for Goa than what it seems. Having made a documentary on the state’s ecological health, I can say with confidence that a greater threat to Goa is the increasing hegemony of the Russians who have taken over the land and are running businesses in the Northern region.
Although the film doesn’t dwell on this angle, it’s not very hard to draw a parallel. A local population getting zombiefied due to the disturbing influence of a different colonial entity, it won’t be too long before their domination reaches epidemic proportions. We, like the 5 survivors, may reach Goa for a getaway from our grinding struggles only to see beaches and shacks having names written in unrecognizable fonts. Far-fetched I understand, but not an impossible claim.
To see how bad the situation really is, forget a secluded island; just try going to Morjim in the night with a camera in hand.
