"Lief Ki Toh Lag Gayi" Is A Waste Of Time
Manu Rishi lightens up the proceedings at places with his dialogues
Ranvir & Kay Kay Menon give crash course in over acting, script is unnecessary complicated and confused, too many characters, Pradhuman Singh as rockstar is a letdown and too stereotyped, Neha Bhasin is as flat as flat screen tv
Watch it for sheer waste of time
Film talks about a story where Salman (Kay Kay Menon), son of a one time underworld biggie ( Jackie Shroff, in a guest appearance), is on a mission to nail the murderer before mourning about sudden demise of his parents.
ACP Chautala (Manu Rishi) is chided by his bully boss and packed off from the capital city to Mumbai's underbelly, to track four Nigerian drug peddlers(referred to as kaale throughout the film). The gold medalist cop, who prides himself on being Haryane-da-sher, cruises his way around Mumbai's gallis with ease, but struggles with Mumbaiyya lingo. Amol Ganguly (Ranvir Shorey) quits his job as a chef in UK and dashes back to Mumbai to his beloved, only to find out that she's ditched him for an ugly millionaire. Distraught, he seeks comfort in his wannabe rockstar friend,dope-head Ajoy Ghosh (Pradhuman Singh), who walks around in boxers withsazaa-e-maut tattoo on his back.
Film has too many characters and things get confusing and complicated for no reason. On top ofthat, dependable performers like Kay Kay Menon and Ranvir Shrenoy test your patience with their overacting and loudeness. Pradhuman Singh who was revelationin “Tere Bin Laden” suffers from stereotype characterization. Manu Rishi is the only one who provides few laughs.
Overall film is a boring and contrived venture and will sank at box office without any trace. It misses everything which last week small film “Vicky Donor” had – big heart, different plot and great performances.
