Maan Gaye Mughal-E-Azam

Rating : 2/10
Running Time : 146 Minutes
Release Date : 22nd August ‘08
Director & Writer : Sanjay Chel ; Music : Anu Malik
Starring : Rahul Bose, Mallika Sherawat, Paresh Rawal, Kay Kay Menon, Zakir Hussain

What desperate hardship could’ve forced actors like Kay Kay, Rahul Bose to be involved in such crap. Surely, the house or car they wanted to buy is not worth being associated in such mindless tripe ? Paresh and Mallika are not known to be too choosy at the best of times, but I expected better sense from Rahul and Kay Kay.

You know there is something wrong with a film when they have a cheesy ‘boing boing’ kind of comic soundtrack to highlight their jokes, like an ancient American sitcom. It abounds in silly jokes, sleepwalking actors, item songs and cheap laughs and is a waste of the considerable talents at their disposal. The lack of a plot or elaborate sets means the film could not have taken more than 5 days to shoot or cost more than 5 crore. Mallika’s last film Ugli aur Pagli had the tagline 99 slaps, 1 kiss. This film could have alternate titles like ’99 stupid jokes and 3 silly songs’ or even ’99 close-ups of Mallika’s bust and 1 backless shot’. I gave it 3 only because I laughed thrice in the film. I spent the rest of the whole movie with my head in my hands. I wouldn’t wish it upon anyone.
