Thook Re!

Although I’m all for bromances on the big screen, I really think filmmakers should now give this premise a rest. I’m terribly bored of tasting the same old wine packed in a new bottle for the last 12 years and counting! Wine gets better with age, they say. That doesn’t hold true here though. My whines seem to be getting better with age! 😆

So, Fukrey is not about F*#@ing as misinterpreted by the very disappointed youth filing out of the theatre way before the interval 😛 It’s about being cheap, thinking cheap and doing cheap. The four protagonists are a bunch of aimless adolescent Dilliwala-velas whose khwaabs ironically reflect expensive tastes- kabaabs, sharaabs and shabaabs. Grand dreams of living the good life whiz about in their heads like rockets when there is not a phooti kaudi in their pockets 😀

Perpetually in wonderland, they remind me of Alice (not referring to the Who the F*#@ one :razz:, though it might seem apt here :wink:) spiralling downwards into the gaping black Kuaa of Juaa, Dhuaan, Marijuaana et al. Three of the smart-asses strike gold each time they act out on the hunch of the fourth. Truly a Mad Three Party this! 😆

Alas, on one occasion the hunch fails! The dreamers’ DONna, (the Punjaban financier who stands to gain the most by pimping :shock:… oops…. pumping in money 😀 at the behest of the lazy lads) Richa Chaddha, sees red and chases the foursome, ready to tear off their chaddis 😛 😆

The movie has to end and so blasting the fukreys’ fucked-up brains like a foghorn is the profound realization that there can never be a shortcut to success 🙄 Yehi samjhaane ke liye Farhan Akhtar ne do ghante ka yeh ghanta film banaaya?!? 😯 Isse toh achcha I could have read an Aesop’s fable lasting all of five minutes…it would have been considerably lighter on my pocket too! After all, GOING CHEAP is the way to go! 😉

BELOW: Thailand mein jo Tuk Tuk kehlaya jaata hai, India mein ‘Fuk Fuk’ ban gaya! 😆
