MOD Movie review: Too many flaws and glitches

Nagesh Kukunoor’s film is so bad that it makes brainless comedies like Rascals look good

Mod is one of those rare films which are filled with so many flaws and glitches that you may just not know where to begin.One of the primary flaws which stood out like a sore thumb was that the director, Nagesh Kukunoor wants us to believe that his film is set in a north Indian hill-station, Ganga or Khushpur, but shows Tamil Nadu’s license plates on vehicles. The film is set in some neverland inhabited by about a handful of people who are happy and satisfied going on with their boring lives with no higher aspirations. Ayesha Takia plays the role of a watch-repair girl who doubles up as a waitress later in the day and is in search for real love. Her dad (played by Raghuveer Yadav) is an alcoholic and hence is always seen sleeping on the stairs outside his own house as Ayesha won’t let him in. One fine day Rannvijay Singh Singha who plays a schizophrenic stalker in the film, shows up at her door. There is a parallel track of a fat guy in the village who is in love with Ayesha, to whom she owes about ten lakh rupees and has to return somehow, someday. A third track running in the film shows a real estate development company that wants to take over the village and is willing to handout the villagers five times worth their land but Tanvi Azmi who runs a little restaurant is against it. She flags off a half-baked ‘Simon Go Back’ kinda movement, but it fizzles out.

The interval point arrives and you feel a ray of hope but you are let down when Rannvijay’s character, who is oscillating between two personalities – Andy and Abhay comes out as the most outrageously hilarious comedy sequence (unintentional) in recent times. The climax will make your jaw drop, not because it is that good but for its mammoth stupidity. Don’t watch this film, even if someone pays you to. This movie should be compulsorily watched by all the rejected MTV Roadies contestants, it will redeem their lives for good.

    Mod is a beautiful love story. Its for people who love beauty. there is no comparison between so called today’s commercial movies which are senseless and have no character. Hats off to the movie.

      Breath of fresh air, well – yes, i practically after watching this movie was looking for the hill station “ganga” or “khushpur”, soon got the concept, there is none, any ways coming back to the movie, i was dying to watch this movie ever since i saw the trailer, well i found the movie breath of fresh air, in the first half, second half was a bit funny and at the same time seriously funny, well climax was a real effort to make this movie totally Indian concept(happily ever after). Watching the movie gives you the feel that the director lost his control and surrendered to the flow very unlike DOR from the same man, which was a much stronger concept, story line up, some (not all) good performances.

    Dear Amit and Veenu,

    Could not agree with you more. MOD is a beautiful film, like a breath of fresh air. I do not under who allows people like KeyRun Rao to become critic. I think he should take his Key and Run. Rao, take your comments and bhaag Jao.
