Bol Bachchan Movie Reviews
User reviews on Bol Bachchan
I loved the 2001 Bollywood film "Lagaan" which was nominated for an Oscar for Best Picture. This movie is also set in a village and is also about some big city strangers that show up, except that this time it's a raunchy comedy about dumb villagers who I guess are too dumb t detect that they've been lied to. The thing I liked about "Lagaan" was that it respected poor villagers who were probably also illiterate and uneducated. This movie makes fun of them, which I found to be in bad taste. The lead performances from Ajay Devgan, Abhishek Bachchan, and Asin are all good though I think the musical sequences could have been deleted. They really don't add much to the story and the songs themselves are not that great, not even the one with a guest appearance from Amitabh Bachchan. I laughed a good deal during this movie but I definitely think if it were smarter instead of so slapsticky, it would have been better.
Think you won't like this movie because it has subtitles? Ha, guess again, you'll be probably be crying with laughter because it's SO funny! My daughter likes foreign films and so does my mom so when we decided to have a girls' afternoon out at the movies, we decided we'd give this movie a shot because the preview looked funny. Don't worry about the language barrier because a lot of the movie is actually in English. Many people don't know this but the most widely spoken language in India is English. Many of my Indian friends and coworkers also speak in English while they're speaking their other languages, which is the case in this movie. It's about two guys and a girl who go to a village to save their lives from money troubles and end up wreaking havoc on the poor town that tries to help them. It's a big case of mistaken identity and lying that gets out of control, so it's quite funny, reminded me of an old episode of "Frasier". Check it out, you'll love it!
Ha! This movie is hilrioussss! I caught myself laughing OUT LOUD so many times I was afraid that I would be shushed by the other people in the theater but they were laughing right along and didn't seem to mind my boisterous hee haw-ing! This movie is about young man whose life is in a financial mess and so he goes looking for a solution. He ends up getting a job and can take care of his sister (the gorgeous actress Asin). He ends up lying to the villagers in the new village where he lives about who he is which makes them think he's a very important person they've been waiting for to save their town. Of course, things go wrong fast and then just get worse and worse, though it's hilarious the lengths they go to to hide the truth. You've probably seen this sort of thing on a lot of movies and TV shows but you'll really enjoy the Bollywood version where everything is SO over the top. Really funny!
I don't usually watch too many Bollywood movies, but sometimes the comedies are quite good so when I heard this one was hilarious, my boyfriend and I decided to check it out. It was! Abhishek Bachchan (the son of Indian superstar actor Amitabh Bachchan) plays a cad really well. You can tell that he really enjoys doing comedy and being cheeky, he's pretty cute at it, lol. Ajay Devgan seems like he's more of a serious type but he gets pretty wacky in this too and you'll be surprised by how hilarious some of the sequences are, especially in the chase and action sequences. I liked the dancing in the film but the music could have been better. I wish one thing they'd do in Bollywood was give women more to do that just show up as decorative show pieces in the musical interludes. Women can be pretty funny too but Bollywood has yet to understand this, I guess.
I am a big fan of Bollywood films and I try to see at least one film a month. People do not understand why I like these films that much but it is simple, these films are my guilty pleasure. Bollywood movies are fun to watch, they are colorful and entertaining and are full of great dances and funny characters. I liked this film and i think if you like Bollywood films you will like this one. I liked the characters and the story and I loved how colorful and fun this film was. Overall, if you want to lift up your mood I suggest you see this film.
