Aladin - Movie Review

Lacks magic
By Nikhil Kumar

What might have been a nail-biting, awe-inspiring fable with breath-taking imagery and intriguing characters, turns out to be a convoluted story as the Genie, dressed in the most outlandish clothes, thwarts the evil Ringmaster’s plan. A word of praise however must be reserved for art director Sabu Cyril whose imaginative city Khwaish does offer something to marvel at. The special effects though aren’t really at a par with the standards one expects from the studios with the cutting edge technology.

Ritesh Deshmukh is perfectly suited to play the wimp Aladin and he delivers a neat performance. Amitabh Bachchan and Sanjay Dutt are over the top as their roles required, but neither of them is funny despite having many sequences aimed to make the audience laugh. Jacqueline Fernandez is gorgeous but has miles to go in acting department. In supporting roles Ratna Pathak Shah (as a café owner) and Mita Vashishth are forgettable.

To wind it up, ‘Aladin’ is neither a visual treat nor an awe-inspiring fantasy fable. However, kids may love to sit through it once.

Rating: 4/10
