Game 2011 Hindi Movie Review1 Comment

By admin



It’s back to the theaters after a sabbatical. GAME is crucial for Abhishek Bachchan. For director Abhinay Deo, this is his first release [Delhi Belly though he signed before he made a lot of game]. So let’s figure out how exciting this game is …

Recall whodunit TEESRI Vijay Anand’s Manzil. Also remember Vijay Anand’s crime thriller jewel thief. Now memories of Raj Khosla’s Woh Kaun thriller THI?. Also revisit eerie tension Biren Nag’s saga BEES SAAL Baad. Decades later and a number of screenings, you can still enjoy those films. This film worked for various reasons. Melodious music. Tight scenario. More importantly, it was difficult to identify the “culprit” to the end guess.

Hindi cinema is undergoing a major metamorphosis. But the rules of the game have not changed. A life whodunit should keep your interest until the last moments. Besides, the identity of the killer / culprit would come as a shock when the veil of secrecy was lifted. The logic or rationale behind the goings on the needs convincing and relatable at the same time. Unfortunately, GAME misfires on all three counts.

The problem with GAME in many areas. First of all, the first time storyteller Abhinay Deo serves a slick flick that’s without meat. It’s all about interesting stories and how they translate convincingly on celluloid, but Abhinay seems to be under the notion that beautiful locations and vibrant / energetic action items to compensate for a tight / coherent script. Nope, they do not!

Another problem with the film is that the script [written by Althea Kaushal Delmas] goes for a toss after a blistering first hour. In fact, I would go the extent of saying that the first and second halves are diametrically opposite in terms of content and the impact they leave. While the first hour succeeds in keeping your attention thanks to the interesting twists [never mind the slow pace at times] and flows like a breeze, the half hour just testing your patience. It is puzzling and confusing, with everyone pretending to be Sherlock Holmes.

Moreover, the second hour is formulaic and the most appropriate route to take to reach the final [more on that later]. Once, Hindi films abound in cinematic liberties, but the implausible scenario, not only the cake but the bakery away. The finale is so weird and amateurish that one wonders how the director and such experienced producers to adopt the script level itself?

Play is a story of four strangers – Neil Menon [Abhishek Bachchan], AT Ramsay [Boman Irani], Tisha Khanna [Shahana Goswami] and Vikram Kapoor [Jimmy Sheirgill] – invited by the reclusive billionaire Kabir Malhotra [Anupam Kher] are private island of Samos, Greece.

A casino owner by profession, Neil has investments in several companies, some legal and some not so legal. Ramsay is a politician from Thailand, who is running for election. In fact he is one of the most powerful men in Thailand. Vikram is a Bollywood superstar, recognized by all in the streets of India and Tisha is a crime journalist, a career that goes nowhere.

None of these characters know each other and do not they know that the billionaire who has invited them to Samos … and the next morning they’ll wish they never came.

GAME bears an uncanny resemblance to the Dharmendra, Zeenat Aman starrer SHALIMAR happiness and the more recent, but the similarity is limited to a number of people gather in one place. Actually, GAME springs a surprise at the beginning, with Anupam Kher spelling of the reasons for inviting the four people on his island. The sequence of events thereafter, right until the conclusion of the first half, leave you impressed mainly due to the twists and turns that are difficult to imagine.

But the turn of events in the second hour lets you baffled. Abhishek’s character travels from Istanbul to Bangkok, Mumbai, then the next moment, the implementation of the plan and thrive if it was easy. Difficult to absorb. Then comes a revelation: Abhishek true identity, which is very filmi, very cliche, very formula-driven … In fact, it looks straight from 1960 and 1970 movies, which is hard to catch today. Much later, something happens to Shahana and all of them end up back on Samos and the cat is out of the bag, finally. Unfortunately, the mystery remains a mystery no longer because they can easily guess the identity of the murderer, much of the mystery is solved. All I can say is that writing is bizarre at this time.

Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy composers do not associate with such a genre and the musical score does not add weight to the goings on. Ram Sampath background score is eclectic. Kartik Vijay Thyagarajan’s cinematography is top notch and the beautiful locations of Greece, Istanbul, London and Bangkok to give the film a spectacular look. Even otherwise, the production values ​​are of the highest order. Dialogue [written by Farhan Akhtar] are well worded at places. The action and chase sequences are pulsating, especially those filmed in Istanbul.

GAME Abhishek offers ample opportunity to prove his courage. He has delivered some really good performances in the past [I would like to single out and Guru KHELEIN HUM JAAN JEE SEŸ in particular] and he gets it right in the first hour. But no actor can rise over a weak script and that’s exactly why he looks far from convincing in the post-interval portions. Kangna doings and although she seems to have worked on her dialogue delivery, they need pictures for her diction right. Especially when she speaks in English. Sarah Jane Dias looks nice and for a first timer, makes a decent debut.

Anupam Kher does not really have much space, while Boman Irani is on top this time. Jimmy Sheirgill has a minuscule role. Shahana Goswami is wasted, except in the solitary sequence as they progress Anupam reprimanded. Gauhar Khan is good. Mohan Kapur is first class. Benjamin Gilani is sufficient.

Overall, game is high on style but low on substance. Disappointing!
