Hmm, ok, so what was this all about?
Was it about Sunny Deol for whom one feels pity that he has to resort to repeating his DAMINI dialogue – “Ye dhai kilo ka haath jab kisi pe padta hai……”?
Was it about Shahid Kapoor who has reportedly slid his cycle down 10 (or is it 13 stories?) building over a cloth when one can clearly see Digi effects at work?
Was it about Ayesha Takia who was part YE DIL MAANGE MORE, part HOME DELIVERY and part SALAAM E ISHQ even though she is required to just stand there and let others do the talking?
Was it about Paresh Rawal who is surprisingly patchy though it’s his natural talent that saves him from not being a complete letdown?
Was it about Johney Lever who is the only flicker of hope in this ‘what was that’ film as he promises some chuckles every time he appears in a frame?
Was it about Sameera Reddy who supposedly did a favor to director Ahmed Khan to act in the movie though her presence (or the lack of it) hardly made any difference to the film’s plot?
Was it about Arbaaz Khan who wears his brother Salman’s MUJHSE SHAADI KAROGI hairstyle while threatening to kill people around him with an arrow gun that takes it’s inspiration from Big B’s much-forgotten TOOFAN?
Was it about Jackie Shroff who is reduced to playing a fourth (or is it fifth?) villain in the film as he decides the fate of his victim through Tarot cards?
Was it about ‘on-comeback-trail’ Chunkey Pandey who deserves a far better deal even as he wears a rather horrifying (though funny) expression with gold teeth intact?
Was it about Om Puri and Sharmila Tagore who must be embarrassed to even count this film in their decades long repertoire?
Was it about Zakir Hussain who walks straight out of SARKAR with getup and mannerisms intact and is horribly miscast as a Dubai based superdon?
Was it about Suresh Menon who plays a Preity Zinta fan and is a ‘baal-ki-dukaan’ while rubbing his finger nails to add on to his fortune?
Was it about Vijay Raaz who only makes fun of himself rather than acting funny?
Was it about Sunil Pal who walks out of ‘Laughter Challenge’ into a situation where he is reduced to a background extra?
Was it about the dog who loves eating anything that is not food and is required to act funny with Reshammiya’s ‘Ae Meri Zohrajabeen’ ring tone playing on through the just-swallowed-cell phone?
Was it about the diamond which is supposed to be the central cause for all the mayhem that happens around all the characters as mentioned above?
Was it about director Ahmed Khan who thought of turning a slick thriller cum black comedy SNATCH into an out and out masala film but only managed to invoke laughter at places?
And last but not the least, was it about producer Firoz Nadiadwala who thought that spending lavishly on songs, action and accessories (sets, cars, trucks etc.) could fool audience into watching FOOL N FINAL?
Yes, I was fooled! And I hang my head in shame!
