Prince - Movie Review

Comedy of action

When it comes to filching ideas from Hollywood action flicks, director Kookie V Gulati shows a remarkable knack. From The Bourne Identity to Matrix via Mission Impossible, the man spares no adrenaline pumping blockbuster in his zeal to stitch together a sleek, stylish film with a heavy dose of high-octane stunts, pyrotechnics and bosom-baring babes. But instead of a nail-biting sci-fi experience, Prince turns out to be a sigh-fi trip that at times makes you laugh riotously without ever intending to.

Vivek Oberoi plays the eponymous hero and a savvy thief who wakes up one morning to find his memory erased. Before he can figure out the whos, wheres and whys, he’s pursued by three sexy babes (Aruna Shields, Neeru Singh and Nandana Sen), each claiming to be his girlfriend Maya. But they are not the only ones on his trail. Turns out that everyone from Indian secret intelligence service to suave international criminals are hunting for Prince, who anyway has only a few days left to live.

There’s more fun to be had when you learn that Prince’s memory has actually been stolen and stored on a chip in a coin which he must find to remember something so important as to threaten the humankind.

Apart from its ludicrously implausible plot, there’s hardly anything original about ‘Prince’. The action sequences remind you of Hollywood films we’ve already seen by dozen. Prince, described as a man who makes the impossible possible, punches six brawny hunks and they fly mid-air in slow-motion while the camera trolleys a full circle before the bashed men bite the dust of the road. Bam! And for some strange reason almost everyone in the film dresses in black leather and has a poor aim when the gun is pointed at the hero who dodges bullets, jumps from skyscrapers, hangs from helicopters, and does every other spunky thing under the sky, including sky-diving, without getting as much as a hairline fracture.

Vivek Oberoi doesn’t pass off as an action hero and never knocks you off your seat with his stunts, though some of them are admittedly edgy. The girls are just eye-candies. Cinematography is good, music bad, dialogues worst. There’s a deliberate twist and turn thrown in every reel to keep you from dozing off. But by the time the film climaxes, you sincerely hope for a Prince-like memory erasure.
