Sajid Khan was laughing at us audience, while on his way to the bank!!!
22 June 2014 | by abhisheksavaliaSee all my reviews

Hoped they had a 0 or even minus rating!!

Thankfully (or not) we had a 8 year old amidst us and as she was finding this movie quite a fun, we had a good time hearing her laugh and watching her rolling in the seat :-)

Otherwise, i assure u we would have had a stroke or would have to get ourselves admitted in Agra mental asylum ourselves!! My sympathies with guys who were not as lucky as us ....

Yes we had a few laughs because my friend had warned me it would be intolerable and our expectations were ... NONE whatsoever!!

That said,, what really struck me was the obvious fact in the movie that

THE WRITER AND DIRECTOR HAD MADE THIS MOVIE WITH A PRESUMPTION THAT Indian AUDIENCE HAS AN IQ OF AN 8 YEAR OLD!!!!

WHY ELSE DO ALL THE 'BIG BUDGET' movies like Chennai Express, Dubang 2 are made out to be as BRAINLESS as possible!!! THE DIRECTORS and producers who r investing millions are not totally idiots are they!

Lets face it--- a low level shameless Hollywood rip-off ( Krish, Dahomey 3) or a BRAINLESS comedy like ( Kolyma returns, house-full, Chennai express, Humshakals) MAKE BIG BUCKS IN THE BOX OFFICE than a meaningful one like queen, Dil Chahta Hai etc

And this brings us to an ugly truth conclusion that --

Just as 70% of India lives in villages, 90% of India's audience love low IQ / poor imitation movies which are usually racist/ show women as men's sex slaves or have non-veg jokes at the cost of homosexuals and others...

Akshay Kumar and SRK have very well understood this phenomenon and accordingly have changed the type of movies they sign up for. in the last ten years, they have hardly made any movie which has even an iota of meaning in it--

And yet they have gone on to become the richest of the lot!!!!

Akshay Kumar, after Herapheri success, suddenly resorted to such brainless comedies ..

SRK - it's hard to believe that a guy who has acted in Swades and My Name Is Khan ,, prefers to act in movies like Om Shanti Om and Chennai Express!!

Both siblings- Farah (with SRK's blessings) and Sajid have eagerly embraced this formula of BRAINLESS movies and unabashedly churn out such black-hole movies...

And unless the 90% Indian audience, Whose brain has been addled by Ekta Kapur soap operas, wake up from their stupor,, this is going to go on :-)

Mera Bharat Mahan!
