Tamilrockers leaks Pagalpanti: Notorious piracy website Tamilrockers has struck again. The latest movie that has been targeted is Pagalpanti. Starring John Abraham and Anil Kapoor in lead roles, Pagalpanti hit the theatres on November 22, 2019 and on the same day, was leaked online by Tamilrockers.
The multi-starrer comedy was expected to do well but has released to negative reviews. Film trade analyst, critic, influencer Sumit Kadel tweeted that nothing has worked in favour of Pagalpanti and it is expected to earn around Rs 7 crore to Rs 9 crore on its opening day. Well, to the rescue is John Abraham, of course!
Cast: Anil Kapoor, John Abraham, Arshad Warsi, Kriti Kharbanda, Pulkit Samrat, Ileana D’Cruz, Saurabh Shukla, Urvashi Rautela
Director: Anees Bazmee
Rating: 1 Star (out of 5)
A madcap caper without a semblance of a cap on its obsession with inanity, Anees Bazmee’s Pagalpanti comes up with a mixed bag of stale gags and unleashes unbridled buffoonery in an attempt to pass it all off as comedy.
The sheer mindlessness that the pea-brained film mines in the hope of tickling your funny bone is more grating than uproarious. The jokes are silly, the humour is lame and the acting wildly erratic. The net result is an attempted laugh riot that runs riot at regular intervals. The laughs never materialize.
The Pagalpanti cast has a troika of tried-and-tested actors endowed with the skill and timing to revive the most comatose of comedies, but even Anil Kapoor, Arshad Warsi and Saurabh Shukla are left high and dry by a nonsensical screenplay that thrives on situations so insanely off-the-mark that the rigmarole about three men desperate to get rich quick and two gangland veterans out to manipulate the greedy threesome never settles into any sort of rhythm.
The plot, peppered with chases, explosions and musical interludes forcibly bunged in when nothing else seems to be working, hinges on a bunch of bumbling fools who go around in circles, taking the film with them.
Raj Kishore (John Abraham), Junky (Arshad Warsi) and Chandu (Pulkit Samrat) launch a business. It goes up in smoke. Literally. Raj is blamed for bringing bad luck to the venture.
Enter two gangsters, Raja (Saurabh Shukla) and his brother-in-law Wifi Bhai (Anil Kapoor). They hire the three down-in-the-dumps men for their nefarious activities. A lot of money and effort has gone down the drain and the criminal enterprise is aimed at making good the losses.
While the characters encounter ups and downs as they flail about aimlessly, it is a one-way street for the film. It hits a point of no return pretty quickly and no amount of horseplay can lift Pagalpanti out of the morass.
There is no Akshay Kumar in the cast but Pagalpanti takes a leaf out of the star’s playbook and deviates into a laboured “public service” track obviously designed to curry favour with the present political dispensation. The film throws in a character named Niraj Modi (Inaamulhaq), a tycoon who has fled India leaving behind a trail of uncleared loans a la Nirav Modi.
