It is just not fair to make anyone go through this...

When a movie has dialogues like- "Mein Bilkul Samajh sakta hoon tumhari nervousness, mein bhi shuruat mein aise hi nervous hua karta tha" (I can totally understand your nervousness as initially even I used to get nervous like that) says Tusshar Kapoor and Minissha Lamba responds saying, "Aap bhi modeling karte the?" (Were you also a model?)- Do they expect us to laugh on such jokes or will it be too wrong if people walked out of the movie? (Which by the way a few people actually did) Sagar Ballary, after a series of really poor, un-funny movies, offers another one of his so-called comedy movie- Hum Tum Shabana.

 

Two guys Rishi (Tusshar Kapoor) and Karthik (Shreyas Talpade), extremely competitive and always vying for the same things suddenly fall for the same girl Shabana (Minissha Lamba) while she is a participant in a beauty pageant organized by their company. Shabana initially hates the two guys for they are responsible for her winning the competition halfway (it is like her insult apparently) but later when the guys propose to her; she is in two minds about who she is in love with (what rubbish!). To solve this, her mama Panju Don (Satish Kaushik) decides to train the two and see who passes this Don-training to successfully wed his niece. Suddenly both of them lose interest in marrying Shabana and all they can think of now is running away from this underworld connection. There is a circus after this where there is a lot of unnecessary running around with the taste of a bunch of slapstick jokes.

 

Tusshar Kapoor and Shreyas Talpade have given justice to their roles and let us not blame them for the lame dialogues they were saying. Satish Kaushik was occasionally funny and so was Sanjay Mishra (of course as compared to the overall movie, what they were doing can be considered as a little bit funny). Minissha Lamba hardly has any role and whatever part she does play, she proves that she cannot act at all. Pia Trivedi was probably better but absolutely unnecessary and Madhur Bhandarkar's cameo was absolutely un-called for.

 

The music is horrible. The song "Thank You DJ for playing this song" is just absolutely irritating. And there are so many songs (or maybe it feels like it) and they are all absolutely unrequired. The background music is also extremely annoying.

 

I don't think I need to say it any further that the movie was an absolute waste of time and energy. Golmaal-like comedy can work once, twice, even thrice, but not the fourth time. People have to stop making such movies because audience is not stupid, they have brains and even though they sometimes like brainless movies, that is only 'coz they are intelligently made. And maybe you will have a few laughs here and there, but that is about it. The movie is not worth watching just for those few laughs.
