Two words for this one 'Skip It'

If you have put yourself through the torture of watching director Ajay Chandhok's previous release 'Chatur Singh 2 Star' that starred Sanjay Dutt and Ameesha Patel, you are definitely saved from watching another disaster coming out of his bag. Add to that the bad run Ganesh Acharya has been having as a producer with films like 'Money hai to Honey Hai' and 'Angel'.

The only way Acharya will manage to get footfalls at theatres is 'Hey Bro's promotional song that features Amitabh Bachchan, Akshay Kumar, Ajay Devgn, Hrithik Roshan and Ranveer Singh. But if you are only going coz you like the song 'Hey Birju', we would suggest log on to youtube.com.

Coming to the mediocre storyline, the film is about two non-identical (actually poles-apart) twins, who were separated after their parents' divorce. Gopi (Ganesh Acharya) stays with his grandfather (Prem Chopra) in Chandigarh while Shiv (Maninder Singh) is a top-cop at Mumbai. Situations get the two together when the antagonist Baba (Hanif Halal) is after Gopi's life and the only way Shiv can catch him is only through Gopi.

As far as the performances go, Ganesh Acharya does an average job and Hanif Halal is strictly okay. Maninder Singh tries his best but the script lets him down. Debutante Nupur Sharma can't act and was a waste and so was Govinda’s cameo.

Director Ajay Chandhok should think about an alternative career choice and wait for a really good script to come his way before he takes up direction again. Dialogues are bad, screenplay pathetic. Comic scenes make you cringe and are a total waste of time and money.

Dance should have been the highlight but Bollywood has churned much better dance numbers than in this one. Music too doesn't hit the right chord.

All in all, we just have one star and two words for this one 'Skip It'.
