People I saw Drona yesterday ……..
You guys are supposed to hand me Asprin, a towel and fan me while a flop on the couch.
You know the feeling one gets when one has bland khichri for lunch when one is not sick? You aren’t hungry but you are not sated? Well, that’s the feeling I got when I walked out of the movie hall.
It has this lovely lady with a great body (Priyanka) who does the most awesome stunts (She is Drona’s bodyguard), you have lovely special effects (though heavily inspired by Harry Potter) and Kay Kay Menon as the villian Rys Raizada – I liked his acting. The other two were heavily spaced out. I have yet to see more wooden characters ….. Abhishek needs to work with real directors who can bring out his skills – he was great in Guru where he reminded me of his mother’s talent. And he needs to lose weight. Seriously who ever heard of a superhero with a paunch?
Wonder why every thing Priyanka had to say started with “Babuji kehte the”? Lady, Tum kya kehti ho? The movie has its good points but is too patchy. If you took out the songs – which have nothing to do with the story at all, reduced the length of the movie and bullied the main leads to emote dammit – it would have been good. As such it was boring.
I liked the sequence where they go to a mythical place called Raazpur … that was interesting
There were some young kids who had come with their parents to see the movie and loved it. I dunno …
Kid#1 : This movie should have been called Rona instead of Drona. Abhishek keeps feeling sorry for himself.
Kid#2 : (in tones of deep distaste) Abhishek was playing the role of Priyanka’s wife!
(Note to self : Lady you have given birth to a chauvanist pig, kick yourself)
My verdict :
- Goldie Behl should stop having anything to do with Bollywood
- Who ever wrote the dialogues of the movie aught to be shot
- Kay Kay as the clownish villain saved the day
- Priyanka rocks – but she better be careful of the movies she picks up
