Paisa Vasooli– 2 / 5
I shall start off by saying that I never expected Tamanchey to be the best movie ever and boy, was I right.
Tamanchey – Pyaar Mien Dil Pe Maar De Goli (Yes) is about 2 small time criminals Munna and Babu who meet when their respective police vans, taking them to the jail, meet with an accident and fall into a ditch (Yes, both the vans). There are no survivors in the accident except both of them. They head out to lead their own separate lives when Munna feels that he has a liking for Babu. He decides to find her and when he does , he is also gets to know that Babu is Tau’s right hand (if you know what I mean) and also his arm candy. Tau is a local Don in Haryana. The story picks up when both of them decide that they want to live together and Munna joins the gang to be closer to Babu. Then? The same run of the mill crap, make out when no one is watching, double cross the boss etc. Sab bakwaas.
Nikhil Dwivedi has maintained his consistency in giving an average performance. His Uttar Pradesh accent and character looks way too rehearsed and artificial. Richa Chadda after giving decent performances like ‘Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye!‘ and Gangs of Wasseypur has been a disappointment. There is a slight ambiguity in her character as well. Is she the skin showing sexy siren who is ‘Tau’s’ arm candy or is she a criminal?. The stereotype that all the girls who abuse and use ‘bhen de takke’ come from Delhi becomes annoying a short while after the movie begins. The only saving grace in the movie is Mahesh Balraj who is absolutely convincing as a Haryanvi criminal.
Whatever few comic punches in the films are not backed up by the screenplay and the background score is not very exciting.
The track ‘In da club’ is definitely catchy and has created a slight liking about the movie. The Salman Khan element may also create some buzz and drag some audience into the theaters (Why Salman, why?).
An extremely mediocre movie and you may want to skip this one, unless you have the hots for Richa Chadda.
He wants to make his life interesting but he's in a typical marketing 9-7 job which keeps him on his toes. He's better than that. Like every ordinary guy, he grabs his creative side and tries to do something extra ordinary. Like every ordinary generic person, this avatar represents the extraordinary version of himself.
