The ApunKaChoice movie review of Hum Tum Shabana
Directed by the Bheja Fry director Sagar Ballary, the movie Hum Tum Shabana does look like a good film. But will the film be a good bet at the box office this week. Let’s find out:

Storyline - With barely a height of 5ft or more, our heroine Shabana Raza (Minissha Lamba) is a model and wants to win a beauty contest, and with the help of our two heroes, Shreyas Talpade and Tusshar Kapoor, she succeeds in crossing the initial hurdles, but only to make them fall madly in love with her. Soon she leaves her helpers… err... her lovers without any word. The dreamy-eyed true lovers, in Bollywood isstyle, land up at her house ruled by a chubby gangster. Who is he? A dreaded criminal of the underworld, and also the chacha jan of Shabana. Instead of wooing Shabana, our heroes now want to shoo off their love for her. The change of hearts of the two suitors of Shabana and how they go about trying to lose her make the rest of the film. What follows after it is a bumpy ride with regular doses of slapping and screaming.

Not Again! - One can feel bored seeing the comedy sequences in the film. Where is novelty, Ballary? However, the movie looks promising, especially in the first half with beauty pageant against the background of scenic Goa locales. Ballary indeed proves his mettle in some scenes. Oh! but the later portions can easily fry your bheja as the script fails terribly. Shreyas Talpade and Tusshar Kapoor try to bring back the smile on our faces, alas it’s too little too late.

The enjoyable moments - The unsurprising first half with splatter of witty jokes. Sanjay Mishra, the one man whose performance excites us in the film: he is awkward, clumsy, confused and bearable in most parts, which we definitely can’t say about the film. Tusshar Kapoor aping his dad Jitendra while donning a Johnny Depp attire is hilarious, at least.

Performances - Minissha Lamba as Shabana is just about looks and no talent. The actress should try movies like her debut film ‘Yahaan’. In this film she neither has scope nor riveting screen presence. Model-Vj Pia Trivedi as a snooty top ramp model is perfectly acceptable. And after seeing Satish Kaushik’s bizarre gangster role which is more of a slap master and less of a ring master, we thought of patting our backs for braving the movie. Tusshar Kapoor as Rishi and Shreyas Talpade as Kartik will try to woo you back to the Golmaal days, but hello, haven’t we had enough of Golmaal. Com’on guys, this is another film. Bheja fry ho gaya!

Coming to the direction of Sagar Ballary, the director needs to don a thinking cap, otherwise he stands the risk of losing his loyalists from ‘Bheja Fry’ days. Wasn’t Bheja Fry 2 enough that he now came up with ‘Hum Tum Shabana’! The songs of the film by music composers Sachin and Jigar could have acted as a saviour because they are popular on FM channels; but as the film lacks punch, the tracks too fall flat on big screen.

‘Hum Tum Shabana’ is not only a waste of time, money but also energy. The serious search for fun in this comedy film was like a treasure hunt in a trash dump. No way!

Rating - 1.5 out of 5
Salman Khan most suited for 'Dookudu' remake in Bollywood!
