Pagalpanti Movie Review : It’ll be your “Pagalpaan” if you decide to go watch this “Pagalpanti”

Film: Pagalpanti
Rating: 1.5/5
Director: Anees Bazmee
Cast: John Abraham,Anil Kapoor,Arshad Warsi,Pulkit Samrat,Ileana D’Cruz,Urvashi Rautela,Kriti Kharbanda,Saurabh Shukla

Rajkishore (John Abraham) is out of luck, which affects everyone he comes in contact with. His bad luck that a certain pandit even warns, ‘Shani maharaj inke Peeche nahi pade hai inki godd mein baithe hain, Muskura rahe hai, hayankar sadesaathi shuru ho gayi hai‘.

Even after knowing this, Along with his friends Chandu (Arshad Warsi) and Chunky (Pulkit Samrat) keep on trying different businesses but always fail. Rajkishore runs up a debt when their business goes belly up. This forces the trio into the employment of the gangsters Raja (Saurabh Shukla) and Wifi (Anil Kapoor). Meanwhile, a pair of rival (Zakir Hussain and Mukesh Tiwari) underlords keep trying to bump off Raja and Wifi but keep failing.

Throughout the movie nearly two-and-a-half hours you’ll find unnecessary songs, slapstick humour, car chases and high-octane destruction scenes, thrown at you out of no where.

It’s makes me sad that the actors like Saurabh Shukla, Anil Kapoor, Arshad Warsi- who’s comic timings are on point and try as hard as they can and director Anees Bazmee, who have given us amazing comedies before are failing so badly at this one. The three female leads of the movie – Ileana D’Cruz,Urvashi Rautela,Kriti Kharbanda are as equal as not being there in the movie at all.
