A Nightmare

FUKREY (2013)

Produced By: Excel Entertainment
Director: Mrigdeep Singh Lamba
Starring: Richa Chaddha, Ali Fazal, Pulkit Samrat, Varun Sharma, Manjot Singh and others
Pros: One good song
Cons: Everything else

If there is one genre I really hate, it's mindless comedies. Separate from the usual comedies, mindless ones are special in that, if you happen to use even an ounce of your mind, you will be bored to death. That is exactly what Fukrey was - a comedy so mindless that you don't even have to wait for the lame jokes to begin. The very fact that the director attempted to pull off a man who is clearly in his early twenties as a high school student speaks volumes about what level of intelligence, or the lack thereof, is expected of the audience.

There's really nothing left untouched here - bad story, bad acting, bad cinematography, mostly bad music. The only silver lining was the song Ambarsariya, which was quite good. But otherwise, this was a terrible movie, a complete waste of time. A special message for Ali Fazal - stop stereotyping yourself and learn to act.

Do not watch this, even if you have absolutely nothing better to do. (OTFS)
