Movie: Hum Tum Shabana

Director: Sagar Bellary

Cast: Tusshar Kapoor, Minissha Lamba, Shreyas Talpade, Pia Trivedi

Jagran Rating: (Bad)

Story line: If screaming is comedy, then Hum Tum Shabana is a comic masterpiece! Not so long ago we were subjected to Sagar Bellary's Bheja Fry 2. Well, this one gets worse.

Rishi (Tusshar Kapoor) and Kartik (Shreyas Talpade) are two executives of an event management company that is just about to organise a beauty pageant. In a serious case of miscasting, Minissha Lamba plays a young contestant.

Rishi and Kartik both fall for the girl and stoop low to win her hand in marriage. But Shabana has a secret. She is the daughter of a don (Satish Kaushik) who will go to any lengths to keep his daughter happy. The story proceeds like the old fable of two cats fighting for cheese.

Thumbs up: This movie is full of Thumbs down, hardly leaving anything for us to jot down here.

Thumbs Down: Perhaps it will be the worst movie one has ever watched. The script is miserable and not a single dialogue can make you smile. The screenplay and story offer no originality. Visually the film is colourful, but the editing with the usage of graphics and computerised effects makes the movie look like an amateurish attempt in filmmaking.
The music by Sachin Jigar is not worth to remember. The song Thank you Mr DJ is like a lullaby.

Tusshar and Shreyas pranced around in what could easily be the worst written roles of their career. Minissha plays someone who doesn't have a mind of her own with conviction. Satish Kaushik as Shabana's ruthless father hits himself when he is upset and hits others when he is happy. Logic is not to be expected from this film.

Oh yes, adding to this , the don played by Satish Kaushik also goes around kissing people he likes and then says, "Tere pappi mein feeling nahi hai." Huh?

A humble request to director Sagar Bellary of Bheja Fry fame - our bheja is fried enough, let's not take any more chances!
