It doesn't take a film critic to recognize a bad film. Although, some bad films can be enjoyable as well. MLA - An Inside Intruder, is sadly not enjoyable, just plain bad. (I wonder if anyone can make me understand that tagline) (Even if you can, I beg you not to). This film is an exercise in trashy moviemaking. It starts off like an amateur film and snowballs into an unmitigated disaster.
The film tells the story of a corrupt MLA of Bhagilpur village, played by Mukesh Tiwari. His malicious deeds are disturbed when an industrialist becomes a roadblock on his dark path. A milk factory is being set up in the village which will not only modernize the village but also accede to the farmers' welfare. The industrialist played by Chaitanya Naidu is utterly unconvincing. There is also a bit of romance in the movie, but the scenes between the young industrialist and his gori childhood lover are excessively awkward. She likes doing social work abruptly and switches her Hindi accent from idiotic to weird in every subsequent scene.
The director, Shiv Dube, seems to have single-handedly taken up the challenge of screwing up in each aspect of film. From the bizarre split screens to the godawful music. The dialogues make you cringe or laugh (unintentionally so). The film almost glows with tackiness (regardless of the item song). There's hardly anything going right here. It makes Indian television look like a technical marvel. Even Mukesh Tiwari fails to impress. Omkar Das Manikpuri, who was also a farmer in Peepli Live (talk about imaginative casting), learns how to act badly by the end of the film.
This is the kind of movie which starts off with a noble intentions but ends up getting lost in egregious storytelling, rendering it almost unbearable to watch. A bad film doesn't dampen my spirits. A bad film that bores me is what I fear. If you are a budding filmmaker, there's a lot not to learn from this film. If you are a casual film-goer, there's a lot simply not to watch.
