    Verdict - Tiresome low brow comedy.Avoid

    Freaky AliWatch trailerRelease date : September 09, 2016

    Freaky Ali is a total Salman Khan family production, written directed and produced by Sohail Khan and starring Arbaaz Khan in a main role. I guess Nawazuddin Siddique was thrown in to add some respectability to this idiotic caper though he must have had some freaky reasons to want to do it.

    The movie is stuck in a time warp with its stale tapori jokes , lame humour like calling a person with leukoderma 'nakli angrez' , some double innuendos and ridden with cliches like the amir-garib divide and praying to Allah and Bhagwan when things go wrong etc . I could go on and on but you get the drift. Ali is a poor man who lives in a basti and sells chaddis for a living, because of which no one will marry him. As a side business he and his buddy also collect hftas for a goon called Danger bhai (more moronic comedy here that I will not elaborate). On one such hafta collection trip he lands up at a golf course and plays a couple of good shots naturally. His neighbor works on that golf course and decides that he will learn golf and become a 'bada' admi. And of course he becomes a pro in no time and also acquires a Barbie looking Amy Jackson as a girlfriend. The reigning champion, an erstwhile Prince of course cannot stand such garib sadak chhap people on the golf course and decides to teach him a lesson. And yada yada yada toll Jackie Shroff comes in at the last minute and makes you actually smile with his idiotic antics.

    Nawazzudin plays Ali with an innocent enthusiasm which makes his character likeable. He is also believable as a golfer though it beats me why he can't choose his own clubs after winning so many tournaments. But then nothing in this movie makes sense. Arbaaz is hopeless. Amy is hopeless. Seema Biswas as the mother and Asif Baasra as his coach cum caddy do their best with stereotype roles.

    The story is trite, the dialogues are crass, the humour is revolting. You will laugh in a few places but that's about it. If you like low brow humour "arre deflated hue tyre" types jokes and think daddy and caddy is a brilliant rhyme, then this movie is for you. I wouldn't inflict this on anyone.
