Movie review Bumboo

Hackneyed and trite 'Bumboo' bores

Movie review Bumboo
Movie review Bumboo; Cast: Kavin Dave, Sharat Saxena, Sanjay Mishra, Sudhir Pandey, Sumit Kaul and Mandy Takhar; Director: Jagdish Rajpurohit; Rating: *

Bumboo, a self-proclaimed action-black comedy is one of the smallest of summer films of 2012. It is a summery light-hearted, frothy entertainer, so they say, but it is far from that. Better uncategorised perhaps.

Directed by Jagdish Rajpurohit, "Bumboo" has the gloss and wit of a loosely inspired French Film "L'Emmerdeur", whose story has been written by Francis Veber. Unfortunately the journey from the French to its Hindi version seems to be a joke.

But if 'Bumboo' is a joke, who is at the receiving end of the joke?

The picture moves on a notorious scamster, Manu Gupta (Sudhir Pandey), who is caught by the Mumbai Police and is supposed to be presented at court in Goa. Since many influential people are involved in the scam, ace hitman Mangal Singh (Sharat Saxena) is roped in to eliminate Manu.

Getting a whiff of the elimination plan, the editor of a well-known paper decides to send his lovelorn depressive photographer Suresh Sudhakar, also known as Su Su (Kavin Dave) to capture the exciting moment.

The hitman and the photographer land up in the same hotel as neighbours. What follows is a series of loud ludicrous moments, which are neither rib-tricking nor visually appealing.

But the film has some good comic moments too. The hotel room sequences among Kavin, Sanjay and Sharat generate laughter. An emotional scene between Pinky (Mandy Takhar) and Kavin is also worth a mention, but such moments are few and far between.

With two sub-plots that run parallel, the movie ends abruptly, leaving the viewer wondering what is happening. "Bumboo" is intended as a light-weight comedy, but if you think about it too much, it's not so funny.

The dialogues and screenplay written by Kavin are nothing but loud and distasteful. Inclusions like sounds of wind and the insinuation of sexuality with incessant PJs, get to you after a while.

And the last line in the film, well… is too cheeky.

Imagine asking the viewer to recommend the film to others, regardless of your opinion about it.

With over-the-top acting, there is nothing extraordinary in the performances.

Presenting the beefed-up Sharat Saxena as a soft hearted killer was a good idea, but in totality he is lacklustre. Sumit Kaul's characterisation is very confused. He is neither funny nor vicious. Mandy as Su Su's sultry wife is only noticeable in the item number.

What further highlights the flaws of the film are the glaring poor edits. The jump cuts in the hotel room scene and in many others, makes the film look very amateurish.

Considering that the film is shot in a scenic place like Goa, the cinematography too is nothing worth mentioning about.

"Bumboo" is not about great ideas. Everything is hackneyed and trite!
