The Movie Naqaab, had the tag-line of ‘The Most Shocking Thriller of the Year’. IMO, the makers ought to change it to ‘The Most Pathetic Thriller of the Decade’!!! The Movie seemed like Humraaz part II…what with Akshaye Khanna playing a struggling loverboy and Bobby Deol a rich Businessman. Only the heroine has changed. Urvashi Sharma is drool-able but has to learn acting and dialogue-delivering and emoting and striking a pose and walking and running and laughing and romancing and crying and pretty much everything else.
Story’s a nonsensical crap. And since most ppl. here won’t see this one, I’ll spill the beans….at the end Akshaye Khanna is OK. Bobby Deol is so not! He needs to stick to Bicchoos and Badals and that Kinda shtick! Music is groovy..tho a few tracks are lifted. Alisha’s title sequence song rocksss. Direction is tacky and insipid and downright ugly….more so becoz of the story! Abbas Mustan seem to have lost it!
Verdict: Avoid Naqaab like the Plague. See Aap Ka Surroor instead! Continue reading
