Go Goa Gone  review

Story :

‘Go Goa Gone’ is a witty, refreshing sampler that serves up a tasty alternative to the standardisation in Bollywood that only ever offers romance, action or slapstick comedy on the menu.

Analysis :

Go Goa Gone-review

Credit here goes to the filmmakers, Raj and DK, with a bonus input from one of the film leads, Kunal Khemu (surprisingly entertaining), who has penned the Hindi dialogues that are already making waves since the sneak peek through the film’s trailers.

Furthermore, the ‘zomcom’ as referred to by the cast and crew, puts forth a slice of urban India, where drugs, sex and a dead-end job are all part of the growing pains that sums up an regular day for Gen Y.

While two such average Joes, Hardik (Khemu) and Luv (Vir Das), hit a roadblock in their messy lives, they decide to ditch the urban jungle by freeloading on their friend and colleague Bunny’s (Anand Tiwari) business trip to Goa.

Nevertheless, these cheerless waters get bloody 10 minutes later, as a rave party drug sends the revellers systems into overdrive and turns them into flesh-eating zombies. Being trapped on this party island, our band of merry men, along with the token glamour girl Luna (Puja Gupta), encounters their saviour in the form of a foul-mouthed Indian conman disguised as a Russian Mafioso (a hilarious Saif Ali Khan).

Khan’s Boris is deliciously cocky at intervals, with that expressionless humour that the actor excels at if his previous films are anything to go by. And even the fake Russian accent has just the right measure of false pronunciations in it to complete the fraud that he really is.

Whether the gang escapes off the island or not is a spoiler not meant for this review, but what can be said is a word of appreciation for the director duo, who don’t let up the humour or the punches for even a minute.

While furthering this roller coaster ride has moments where you can be at the edge of your seat, while the next rolling in the along sections of seats in the theatre courtesy a witty one-liner.

Needless to say, a zombie comedy is not for the masses. On the contrary, even with its distince segment of audience, the film excels at the experimentation it has attempted and glory to Khan’s Illuminati Films for finally giving a platform for scripts that show reel-life is finally evolving in these 100 years of cinema that Bollywood seems to be celebrating.

Go Goa Gone  review

Kunal Khemu is a show stealer having his character buying for itself all the juvenile, sleazy humor, it is he who gives you your money’s worth here! While Vir Das’ straight faced, matter of fact style of comedy is bone tickling to the core. Along with Kunal Khemu, their duo holds this ungodly funny film tight. Further, Anand Tiwari does his role calculatedly even though falling slightly short of Khemu and Das’ energy and vigor. Mostly adequate, he stays true to his stint and focuses his vision entirely on it alone. Puja Gupta was sidelined for the good in the film. Although extremely hot, her screen space was unjustifiably cut short for the larger good of the story.

On the contrary, Saif Ali Khan as Boris pampers you in his absurd Russian accent loftily while his kickass screen presence is flavorful despite lacking in minutes. Yet as Bollywood’s first zombie slayer, Junior Pataudi marks the beginning of a new trend in the horror genre of Bollywood films.

Final Word: Go Goa Gone is a must one time watch. As a result of having stamping off a artless horror concept in India, borrowing from a hit Hollywood formula, it is an apologetic crazy film with Vir Das and Kunal Khemu delivering super performances. Delegated into the premise, the film is an lavishly abundant hilarious laughter riot that shouldn’t be missed. No worry just take a break from all the moody things in life and catch this film, believe me there can’t be any regrets! Honestly speaking, i am going with a 3.5 star for this film. Before I conclude another fact to deliver that had the laugh riot the film actuates in the first half persisted unyielding, the film would easily have been muted!
