The Acid Factory Movie Review

Enter at your own risk
By Naresh Kumar Deoshi
Rating: 2/5

By N.K. Deoshi

You can’t teach an old dog new trick.

Sanjay Gupta, who’s quite an ‘Oldboy’ at ripping off films from Hollywood and world cinema, passes on the trait to director Suparn Verma, who, in turn, takes on the imitative trait like a fish takes to water. So here the producer-director duo take the Columbian film ‘Unknown’, dissect it, jumble it up, reassemble it and Bollywoodize it to pass it off as a work of creativity known as Acid Factory.

Partaking in this cinematic charade are actors Fardeen Khan, Aftab Shivdasani, Dia Mirza, Manoj Bajpai, Dino Morea and Danny Denzongpa. They play the six characters lying unconscious in a locked-up, dilapidated factory. As one by one they regain their consciousness, they realize they don’t remember a thing. A gas leak inside the factory has wiped out their memories temporarily.

And then the phone rings. On the other end of the line is the limousine-riding gang lord (Irrfan Khan) who courteously informs the wounded and bleeding sextet that some of them are hostages while the rest kidnappers. Then on begins the mind game of finding out who’s who.

The movie keeps going into flashbacks to sketch out the history of each character. As the mystery begins to get untangled and the different players of the story come to blows in a hurriedly stitched climax, you secretly wish for another, stronger, gas leak.

For a lover of action flicks, ‘Acid Factory’ packs in an ample dose of stunts, action, flying bullets and pyrotechnics. So many cars get blown up that you lose the count by the end. If only the makers had given away some of those cars to poor folks like my humble self! Wishful thinking apart, ‘Acid Factory’ has been made in a signature Sanjay Gupta style. The camera angles, the colour tones, the background music which, by the way, gets jarring after a point - all reek of a particular style of filmmaking that gives precedence to style over substance. There’s also a racy club song to titillate your senses.

Performances by the actors are nothing to rave about, but yes, all of them do get to make some kind of style statement. Dia Mirza does kick-butt action in hot pants and high heels. Fardeen Khan flaunts his glares and designer jackets. Manoj Bajpai tries to play the eccentric funny guy; while Dino Morea and Aftab Shivdasani show their muscle power. Only Danny shows glimpses of acting here and there. And oh! I almost forgot (pun unintended) there’s also Gulshan Grover playing a cop on Irrfan Khan’s trail. In a relatively small role, Irrfan plays the dapperly don who controls the characters like marionettes and also keeps slipping off the cops’ trail. As Gulshan puts it, he’s “bloody smart”.

‘Acid Factory’ starts off well but gets mangled in the mess of too many subplots. Though the action (Tinu Verma) does give you goose pimples, the dialogues are banal at best. But the biggest disappointment is the shoddy climax, which makes you want to rush out to the nearest acid factory and wipe it all out of your memory.

Who am I? What place is this? Jeez! What am I doing on this laptop!!!!

Rating: 4/10
