Remember Anees Bazmee? Yes, the same director whose movies, no matter what their content, used to have loads of entertainment quotient setting box-office ablaze with cash resisters ringing and distributors walking in a merry mood all way to the bank unless his recent flick ' No Problem' produced by Anil Kapoor came and changed the fact.
Singh is Kinng, No Entry and Welcome without their low content were high on entertainment and that' s why struck a chord with the audience big time and worked wonders. Alas! The same era has come to a grinding halt with ' No Problem' .
Another important thing; making the audience laugh is the most serious business and that' s were No Problem seems to have got big problems in making the latter laugh big time. You probably keep all your logics, mannerism and thinking cap off your head to enjoy a comic outing. But, No Problem is so dull that makes you think many a times that why Anees Bazmee made such a soulless and unmoving film.
It boasts of an okay plot but packing in some comic sequences and one liner is where it lacks.
Final word? No Problem supposed to be a crowd puller due to its genre, ensemble cast, music, An Anees Bazmee film fails to entice the masses big time. In one crude sentence, No Problem' s biggest problem is its inability to entertain. Thumbs Down!
Let' s see the baseless plot of the flick in the movie in the words of Mr. Taran Adarsh, who seems to be very harsh on the movie sue to its inability to make you laugh within a flash.
Yash [Sanjay Dutt] and Raj [Akshaye Khanna] are small-time crooks and childhood buddies. Raj wants to lead an honest life, but Yash always manages to do something that jeopardizes Raj' s chances of turning over a new leaf. When Yash robs the First Village Bank, the innocent bank manager, Zandulal [Paresh Rawal], also falls under suspicion, just because he had sheltered Yash and Raj under his roof.
In Durban, Arjun [Anil Kapoor] is a bungling cop, married to Kajal [Sushmita Sen], and the daughter of the Commissioner of Police [Shakti Kapoor]. Kajal has a split personality -- one moment she' s a loving wife and mother, who, for 10 minutes every day, transforms into a terrifying maniac intent on murdering her husband.
Diamonds worth millions have been stolen from the International Diamond Centre by the gang lead by Marcos [Suniel Shetty]. Arjun is as determined to find these ruthless robbers, as Zandulal is to find the two crooks who robbed his bank. Yash and Raj try to avoid Zandulal, who does not realize that they are his neighbors.
Meanwhile, Raj falls in love with Sanjana [Kangna Ranaut], Kajal' s younger sister. But just before the engagement, Zandulal threatens to expose Yash and Raj unless they return the money they stole from his bank. Cornered, Raj and Yash agree to commit one last robbery. They rob a minister' s house, minutes before Marcos arrives. The minister is tortured and killed, because Marcos cannot find the stolen diamonds.
Now starts a game of hide and seek, as Arjun goes after Yash and Raj, the prime suspects in the minister' s murder and Marcos also hunts them down because he' s figured out that they have the diamonds. Yash and Raj must prove their innocence and also somehow or the other pay back Zandulal.
Hmmm... seems like an outrageous plot where just like his earlier movies Anees tries too hard to make you laugh but falls flat on his face this time and how!
It must be added that Anees has been trying to reuse age-old formula and it has worked in his last outings as they were very high on their entertainment quotient but not this time; this time he has gone over the board and that' s why it' s a huge disappointment.
Music has been an important factor in all his movies but except for ' Mast Punjabi' track whole of the track is enough to put you off the board.
Talking of the performances from this colossal letdown, Sanjay Dutt tries too hard to enact his part but what comes out is only a very average performance. Akshay Khanna is another one with just an average part. Anil Kapoor hits all the right notes and same can be said about Paresh. Amongst the girls, Sushmita shows some comedy skills while Kangna is wasted. Neetu Chandra is hardly there and does not get much scope.
Shakti Kapoor is funny while Sunil Shetty is like usual only. Baby Saloni is strictly okay. One can' t understand what' s Vijay Raaz is doing in the movie?
And yes not to forget the bunch of Gorillas and fish in the aquarium that saves the heroes in the climax while the fish swallows the diamonds before they reach out to the goons.
On the whole, No Problem has some good laughs in the first half while it' s the second half' s proceeding that fails the movie big time. It lacks a good story, good performances, good music and most importantly the entertainment quotient with humor falling flat.
From the box-office point of view, it has got a strong competitor in ' Band Baaja Baarat' and shall bow down in days to come. A huge opportunity wasted like never before.
Rating: * (Flop)
Verdict: No Problem in giving this flick a must needed miss!
