SHOLAY gone wrong
28 October 2009 | by silvan-desouzaSee all my reviews

Aamir is very choosy of his films but sometimes he too has done mistakes Dharmesh Darshan's MELA was one of his mistakes which also starred him with his brother Faizal Khan

The film is a remake of THE SEVEN SAMURAI and also CARAVAN but the film also suffers from the SHOLAY hangover

The characters of Aamir- Faizal and the villain Tinnu Anand(his name in the film being Gujjar) suffer from SHOLAY hang over

The film however is boring and the comedy between Aamir- Faizal is irritating and too loud and the pee joke copied from DUMB AND DUMBER and earlier shown in HERO HINDUSTANI(98) is badly handled

The villain's track too is clichéd and so is the entire bhasti set up plus the misunderstanding between Aamir and Twinkle and the entire climax

The climax is stretched endlessly

Direction by Dharmesh Darshan is weak, Music is okay, DHADKAN MAIN TUM is the best

Amongst actors Aamir tries hard to play a Dharam type role of SHOLAY but is too loud here though he does well in many scenes He isn't at his best Faizal Khan given the serious role is too stiff mostly but okay in some portions Tinnu Anand is very good as Gujjar Twinkle Khanna however is painful, her dubbing by someone else is too bad and shreiky and that worsens her act This role was offered to Karisma but Dharmesh felt that Twinkle will suit it better and that was a bad part though even Karisma would be intolerable with her crying Amongst rest Johny irritates, Tiku Talsania and the rest gang of Raja Hindustani(Navneet Nishan.etc) are boring Ayub Khan dies soon thankfully
