He and his gang comprising of Dollar, Soda and Burger have managed to keep the police, world over, on their toes. With the help of his gang, his wannabe-actress girl...more

Once upon a time in Bolly Land was a director who gave us two of the most entertaining films of the decade. Then she got married,made babies and now ends the decade with something which is not even remotely close to her earlier two films.

You cant call this a FILM. This is just one of the entertainment shows that Bollywood puts up during the year. Something like Rambo circus that is going on in the city. Her last two films were written by her along with Abbas Tyrewala & Rajesh Saathi (Main hoon na) and Mushtaq Shaikh & Mayur Puri (Om Shanti Om). That was one of the biggest strengths of her earlier films. This time she works out of a script by the Kunder Brothers. Shirish has also edited, produced, done the background score & has composed the title song just like Mahmood of Wah Wah productions fame did Pyar Kiye Jaa & Andaz Apna Apna. Wonder why he left direction out. Jaanemann could be the reason.

The show is about a con artist (Akshay Kumar) who is assigned the job to plan a heist & loot a train filled with antiques worth crores. How he does it is what the show is about. The half baked, sloppily written script is filled with jokes on actors, Bollywood & Hollywood film industry. Happy Dent commercial is also used as reference for one scene & Mr. India for another. Danny Boyle becomes Danny Doyle) & M.Night Shyamalan becomes Manoj Day Ramalan. They are constantly referred to, making you feel that they are part of the film. Oscars are made fun of. Anil Kappor does a parody of himself; Salman walks in for a dance number. No effort is spared to make the entertainment show worth your ticket price. BUT, Kumar is no Khan and a film like this required Shah Rukh Khan. Akshay looks like a replica of all his performances from a Priyadarshan films. I for one am suffering from AFS (Akshay Fatigue Syndrome which happens when you see an actor doing the same role again and again). Katrina Kaif impressed me for once with her pitch perfect real performance as the dumb bimbo. The one who is the highlight & tubelight of this show is not a Khan but a Khanna. Akshaye Khanna as the Oscar obsessed Star nails his character and how. Just watch him when he does an impromptu garib act when Akshay Kumar says he wants a garib looking actor. Or when he does the Day Ho!!! Dance number. Another character who had tremendous potential but was ignored was Aarya Babbars Inspector Dhurinder. I would have loved to see more of his character rather than the three chamchas out of which Vijay Maurya (wait for Paanch to see the potential of this fantastic actor meanwhile watch him play a rap obsessed dons son in Bombay to Bangkok) & Ali Asgar (check him out in Joru ka Ghulam as Raju Patel) are superb actors who were wasted in this show doing their boss!!! Act repeatedly. Or the Aman Varma & Murli Sharmas gay Bong act. Dhurinders character had the potential of becoming the Guldasta (one of my most favorite characters played by Annu Kapoor in Tezaab) of 2010.

Final few words: Since Santa Aamir is not around this Christmas you have no option but find entertainment in this Khan naama. I found mine in Khanna.

Rating: **

Ticket Meter: Worth a 150/- buck ticket.

P.S. There is no mention of Sheila ki Jawani because I find the song and its video highly overrated.
