Official Website: | Facebook | Twitter.

Critic’s Rating: 3/5
Readers Rating: 3/5
Genre: Romance
Director: Siddharth Anand
Cast: Hrithik Roshan, Katrina Kaif,
Danny Denzongpa
Duration 2hrs 36mins
plot: After 150 years, an Indian robs the Kohinoor
diamond. And thus begins the cat-and-mouse game as
the international mob and the Indian Secret Service
(ISS) officials hunt him down.
Review: Siddharth Anand’s Bang Bang makes more
noise and little sense. This desi adaptation of the
2010 Tom Cruise-Cameron Diaz action thriller, Knight
And Day, has charm in abundance, primarily because
of its effervescent lead pair — Rajveer/Jai ( Hrithik
Roshan) and Harleen (Katrina Kaif). But it lacks
coherence. Disbelief is writ large on the face, right at
the start.
Picture this – India’s most wanted, Omar Zafar (Danny
Denzongpa), who is to be extradited to India, escapes
from a maximum-security prison in Britain because his
aide Hamid Gul (Jaaved Jafferi) blows up the place
like it is a cardboard edifice. They also kill the honest
ISS agent, Viren Nanda (Jimmy Sheirgill) in the
process. Next, Zafar suggests that he can actually
hold up the UK-India extradition treaty by getting an
Indian to rob the Kohinoor. Really?
Aimed at providing more style than substance, the film
makes you comfortably numb in the first 20 minutes
itself. So you may perhaps just raise an eyebrow as
you watch Katrina, a bank receptionist from Shimla
(with a liberal grandmother who tells her to go chase
love), on a global escapade — London, Prague,
Greece… in the company of a “psychopathic
schizophrenic” jewel thief, Hrithik, after meeting him
on one blind date.
If you’re still looking to make sense, Hrithik has a
back-story on why he attempted to steal the Kohinoor.
Or why he chose guns over roses. Kaif, convinced of
his good intentions, is happy to cling to him with gay
Anand’s film has no grammar. But it compensates
with breathtaking locales and stylishly choreographed
stunts. It also works as a show reel for the bronzed
Roshan with his six-pack abs and the enviable midriff
of Kaif wearing a red polka-dotted bikini top. Their
horseplay caters to an audience that is low on IQ and
high on adrenalin!
Full marks to the lead pair for not being overwhelmed
by the commotion around them. Especially Hrithik,
who knows the job at hand is silly, but never slips up.

Others: identical, dolphin tale 2 (new releases now showing at the cinemas)
