Bang Bang! review by ANIZ FILMVALA

Bang Bang!

review by

ANIZ FILMVALA

*****



Directed by Siddharth Anand
Bang Bang! Loosely based on Hollywood blockbuster Knight and Day starring Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz , our desi version comparatively is well crafted but has  elements of a Bollywood potboiler. Dance, drama,vendetta and romance that’s the only mantra for box office returns which our makers thrive for, in consequence the result come as a mockery to Hollywood blockbusters which are leagues ahead from our visionary Bollywood film makers. The tradition of adaption will mushroom and we have to be burdened frame to frame wondering about which was the best version instead getting captivated for pleasure viewing. 

Harleen [Katrina Kaif] a bank receptionist wants to overcome her mediocre life and want to find her love on a dating site hence wrongfully meets Rajveer [Hrithik Roshan] on date instead of some Vicky. Rajveer has stolen the Kohinoor and is hotly chased by the gang of most wanted terrorist Omar Zafar [Danny Denzongpa] and his aide Hamid Gul [Jaaved Jafferi]. Harleen's life takes an exploratory turn when Rajveer sedates her and takes her on a dream ride 
transitory where she wakes up at an exotic island of Greece. Is Rajveer an international crook? Or his mission to reach Zafar is a personnel vengeance; the movie unfolds to an astonishing fact towards climax with extravagant showdown with ample Bang Bang!

Hrithik &Katrina look strongly devoted to each other and set the screen on fire with their sizzling chemistry and their great body and looks. "Tu Meri" track is remarkably good in visual and rhythm.

Though the film is full on commercial enterprise and gives less significance to script and more to action and the hurdles in entertainment is the long interruption of song breaks and melodrama pinching at times when the adrenaline is on move. Just go sit back and enjoy a mindless saga of our best looking couple in Bollywood that’s the price of your ticket in return you get.
