Mr Joe B Carvalho movie review: The film offers very little entertainment at the price of its ticket

A cat and mouse game of chor-police the story starts dragging in the first half and the song and dance routine make it more weary

Arshad Warsi is a brilliant actor when given the right script. Unfortunately in Mr Joe B Carvalho he is at the mercy of his director and script. In this case he plays a detective caught in the plot of mistaken identity. Jaaved Jaaferi plays a terrorist names Carlos who impersonates various people. Soha Ali Khan provides the glamour by dancing, showing up in a bikini and attempting a very bad imitation of Salman Khan’s popular Chulbul Pandey act.

What’s hot

There are a couple of scenes that stand out because of Arshad and Jaaved’s comic timing. When given some good material to chew on these two can actually bring the house down.

 What’s not

The screenplay suffers lack of imagination. The sub plots, situations and dialogues leave very little scope for any originality. Almost everything you watch in the film has been attempted elsewhere. With stand up shows and comedy nights doing the round on television every day, writers need to be on their toes to attempt this genre. Ranjeet and Himani Shivpuri’s characters ham their way through the film.

What to do

With very little entertainment offered at the price of its ticket, Mr Joe B Carvalho is a feeble attempt that fails to provide any comic relief.
