A long weekend and family wanted to watch a movie and what we had on offer ( Haider , Bang bang and some English alien movies ) we decided to stick with Bollywood masala movie , Bang Bang . Bang Bang is an adaptation of Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz starer Knight and Day .
The plot is cliched and barren as expected . India’s most wanted criminal, Omar Zafar (Danny Denzongpa), who is to be extradited to India, escapes from a maximum-security prison in Britain because his aide Hamid Gul (Jaaved Jafferi) blows up the place like it is a cardboard palace. In the process they kill the honest ISS agent, Viren Nanda played by ,Jimmy Shergill. Zafar being an intellectual criminal comes up with a mind-blowing idea that he can actually hold up the UK-India extradition treaty by getting an Indian to rob the Kohinoor. What the director was thinking ? Why the story-line is always so shoddy in most of our hindi movies?
But keep aside the plot , you are served a bronzed god , who dances like a Michael Jackson , fights like a James Bond and looks like million bucks. The movie is shot is beautiful locations of Prague , Manali , Shimla , Phuket and each frame is a visual delight. The parts of Shimla and manali where they have shot some action sequences and Katrina’s home looks like a picture postcard.
Katrina Kaif with her hour glass figure and with absolute no sign of acting serves the perfect arm candy for our swashbuckling hero . She is in the movie and does what she has been doing for last few years , look beautiful and talk nonsense. The movie does not demand much acting from both the actors as they both are busy in running and jumping from one floor to another.
It is a pure Bollywood masala movie but definitely entertains you with its absolute wonderful cinematography and intense action sequences. Watch it for Hrithik Roshan and for some sensational visuals . The movie does not provoke any thoughts nor it makes you feel heavy , but just entertains you with its feel good factor , transporting you in a land free of any worries.
