Anand Kumar's Desi Kattey has written a new definition for being bad. Read on the full movie review to find out why...
What it's about:
Two village kids grow up in a neighbourhood where they sell desi guns (kattey). It is because they have been dealing with guns all their lives, their aim is immaculate. However, they slowly grow up to become local goons in the area. The state’s powerful gangster takes them under his wing and the two are very happy as that was their childhood dream. (If it reminds you of Arjun Kapoor-Ranveer Singh-Priyanka Chopra starrer Gunday don't blame us)
Soon after they are spotted by an ex-army officer and he sees a great talent in them. He decides to train them for various shooting championships. This was their chance to live a better life. However, one guy decides to use his skill for winning laurels for the nation while the other gets back to being in the world of crime and becomes the most feared king pin ever. Who will finally succeed in life and who will not? Watch the movie to find out...
The cinemtography by S R Satish Kumar is good. However, the director Anand Kumar's vision was not that great and thus there were loads of flaws even in the picturisation. The music by Kailash Kher is commendable. Not that Claudia Ciesla's item song Patnewali hoon is something great but the rest of the songs are decent ones. These were the few things that sailed people through the movie.
Everything about the film is pathetic. It's story line is flawed, it's dialogues are worse than imagined, the acting is awful and above all the direction is vague. Seasoned actors like Suniel Shetty and Ashutosh Rana have minimal screen presence. However, Ashutosh does really well in that as well. Suniel's dialogue delivery is just as funny as it was in Border or any of his 1990s films. Jay Bhanushali impressed in Hate Story 2 but here he couldn't prove his mettle at all. Newcomer Akhil Kapur was way too stoic and his acting reminds you of the fact that robots could even act better than him.
However, we don't blame the actors for their bad acting. It's the director who is to be blamed. In a film where it should have been full of guns and gory, every scene and dialogue was more than laughable. Had it promoted as a comedy film, maybe it would have done way better. Even the part where the director claimed that it is a sports film is utter rubbish. If this is a sports film then Priyanka Chopra's Mary Kom was a dance film.
This film is a perfect example of what bad direction can do to a good enough plot. This movie is torture to your senses. If you have nothing better to do this weekend, sit at home and watch Arnab Goswami on TV. That will be far more interesting that going and watching this film.
