Throw common sense and logic into the dustbin and abandon your value for your time when you go to watch Good Boy Bad Boy .

It is painful when you walk out of a theatre and realize what an utter waste of time the movie was. Such a feeling is most likely to overwhelm you after the grueling experience of sitting through the mindless crap called 'Good Boy Bad Boy'.

Directed by Ashwini Choudhary, the movie could be a test of patience and tolerance. It is supposed to be a funny flick, and that is the most laughable thing about this movie. The humour in it is childish and crass, the situations are ludicrous, the performances are awful and the music is horrible.

The story's setting is a college campus.

Rajan Malhotra ( Tusshar Kapoor ) is a 'good boy' who spends his time staying riveted to books and isolated from the youthful jamboree of college life. Even Rajan's parents want him to leave his uptightness and enjoy life. But Rajan has a sole aim, to study hard and become a responsible citizen of this country.

Such talk is Greek to Raju Malhotra ( Emraan Hashmi ) who, no prizes for guessing, is the 'bad boy'. Raju maintains a safe distance from books, bunks his lectures, spends his quality time playing pranks on others or chasing girls in the college.

Speaking of girls, there is 'bad girl' Dinki ( Tanushree Dutta ) who is a free spirit with mod attitude and god-given assets. And then there is 'good girl' Rashmi ( Isha Sharvani ) with a planned outlook towards life.

Story takes a turn when the new principal (Paresh Rawal) decides to bring some discipline into the college by dividing it into three different sections for brilliant, average and week students.

By mistake, the IDs of Rajan and Raju are swapped. Rajan finds himself in Raju's place, and Raju goes among the intellectual students.

Despite this case of mistaken identities, the bad boy falls for the good girl Rashmi, who turns out to be the principal's daughter. On the other hand, the 'bad girl' Dinki woos the good boy Rajan.

The movie ends with an inter-college competition in which both the good and the bad boy emerge victorious.

'Good Boy Bad Boy' hardly offers anything interesting and entertaining. The film's story sounds much much better on paper than it looks on the screen. The fault lies with the movie's director Ashwini Choudhary for his shoddy direction and screenplay. Even Himesh Reshammiya's music is below his usual standard.

And now to the performances. Tusshar Kapoor is convincing playing the uptight bookworm with little knack for having fun in life. Emraan Hashmi doesn't have much flair for comedy. But he is not bad in certain funny scenes. Isha Sharvani has limited expressions on her face while Tanushree's physical assets constantly takes a viewer's attention away from her lack of acting talent.

But the most painful thing is to see Paresh Rawal wasted in a poorly written role.
