Movie review of Fitoor, Aditya Roy Kapoor, Katrina Kaif & Tabu Starrer. It is based on Charles Dickens Novel, Great Expectations. Read the complete review…with a twist ;)
One fine day Abhishek Kapoor ( best known for Rock On) decides to make a movie. He picks up a novel by Charles Dickens, puts in his creativity ( which is basically just Indianizing the characters & locations) & voila he is good to go. He assembles a bunch of actors who he thinks fits the bill. Let’s see how
Abhishek Kapoor (AK): Hi Tabu
Tabu: Hey AK. What are you up to these days?
AK: I have got a mind blowing script for you. There is a little boy….from….& a begum who…. a pretty looking girl….a terrorist…kashmir…delhi..london. Isn’t it exciting? ( Almost jumping )
Tabu: Yaa..have u decided about other characters?
AK: Yes…everything is set. We will have a script narration on … You have to do it,Tabu.
Tabu: I will see AK
On the day of script narration…
AK: Hey Katrina, Aditya, Tabu. I have got this amazing script. You all gotta hear it out. Kat, the role is tailor made for you. This girl is from Kashmir. The poor boy ( to be played by Aditya) is head over heels in love with the girl at first sight.
( BTW, boy is hardly 13)
Kat: Ak ..Kashmiri girl means I will have to speak Urdu ( looks baffled)
Ak: Kat kat…babes don’t worry. The little girl will speak Urdu. We will send you character to London ( wow…Kat’s Home). You just concentrate on looking good ;)
Kat: You are a sweetheart AK. I will bring the character to life. You know I have done such a variety of roles. NRI Girl, NRI daughter, NRI Dancer, NRI Detective, NRI BRAT, NRI.. etc. You know what I mean.
AK: Told Ya!
Aditya: Hey Ak, Whats my character?
AK: You are the hero, my boy. This character has such a depth.
ARK: Awesome. That’s what I was looking for after my daawat-e-ishq debacle. A chance to act.
AK: Hey Aditya, you have done enough acting in Aashiqui 2. Just go back home dude. Watch your only hit movie say 10 more times. I need the same expressions. You know the same depth
( by that he meant to get drunk & shout. For rest of the movie look perplexed)
Kat: Who is going to act?
AK: Kat baby,Tabu is there. She will act.
Tabu: Array Mai..Me alone?
AK: who else?
Tabu: You have signed Ajay as well na
AK: Ya. He will shoot for his 1.45 min scene on so & so day & after a month he is shooting in London for another movie. We will shot his 2.55 min scene there. Easy!
Tabu: Bas itna hi???
AK: No Tabu. His role is crucial to the plot. In fact, his character determines the future of that poor boy
Tabu: Oh I see. Ok I am on
ARK: Yup. AK. Will watch AAshiqi 2 on loop pakka.
AK: Kat ??
Kat: Ya AK. I am in ya. I have to do some research to play a NRI girl. I am heading to London.
AK: Awesome…Let’s Rock guyz
This is how the movie called Fitoor came into existence. Tabu was payed thrice the price as she was solely responsible for acting in the movie. Aditya Roy Kapoor did exactly what he did in his previous movies, hammed & looked disoriented ( bang on). Katrine Kaif yet again played the role she has mastered over the years, playing a NRI. And Ajay Devgan ( yes, he is there too),…he…What did he do exactly?? Not sure!!!
Fitoor didn’t even live upto its title. I would’ve loved to see some madness. Fitoor falls flat without generating even a single moment of cinematic charisma. Go for it if only you can watch a beautiful story getting wasted!!!
