It's just a No Show.

Verdict - An apt nominee for the Kela awards.
One wonders what made the producers to invest in this 'insipid spoof ' ,cut and paste filum( pun intended)?
What's the 'plot' by the way? Garry( Boman Irani) and Sophie( Lara Dutta Bhupathi) have been assigned to conduct the IIFA awards in New York.In order to settle a score with her boss Garry,Sophie has ' designed' it to be a ' flop'.Two amateurs in Tejji( Diljit Dosanjh) and Jeenat Patel( Sonakshi Sinha) have been shot listed to present their ' talents' at the award ceremony.
Off they are flown in an Air India( just a class room shot to present) .They are housed in the best of hotels.They are not made for each other .Yet they do their best as a prep often poking at each other
Comes the D day.All is set.A hiccup though arises.The original Karan( Karan Johar) ,whose to compere with his ' gay' partner Riteish Deshmukh,has been kidnapped.By whom? Why? Go see for yourself.
The novices Tejji and Jeenat make a mark on stage.The show is applauded by one and all.
Back home the duo become celebrities of sort.
Where does WTNY lack? The scripting is poor.A sample-Teji to Jeetan# ' Tere paas to Salman hai,mere paas kya hai'? Jeetan''s response#' Tere paas spirit hai'
Tejji retorts # ' Woh to mein raat ko per jaoonga'.
The gags are too silly.Spoof is forced.No performer sones.All are either indifferent or over act.Rana Daggubati enacts Baahubali to rescue Karan from the kidnappers.Sushant Singh Rajput is a poor man's MSD.
What's tolerable though? Atleast the makers take a look in within the hindi film industry.We are tightly made to believe that sponsored shows are paid for so far as the galaxy of stars are concerned.There's all kind of ' fixing' in bestowing ' awards'.
All in all watch WTNY if your time has zero opportunity cost.
