The Joker Movie Review

Run far from 'Joker'. It’s no firework, all fizzle!
By Nikhil Kumar
Rating: 1/5

The ApunKaChoice movie review of Joker. Some movies are so bad that they inspire masochistic urges like pulling one’s hair out or banging one’s head against a wall. Joker isn’t that kind. It goes beyond that and becomes a joke unto itself, so much so that instead of unleashing irrational torture upon one’s poor self, the viewer revels at the sight of a director and his actors making utter fools of themselves. In short, it’s so bad, that it’s good.

Shirish Kunder -- may good lord bless his soul -- dons three dunce caps: writer, editor and director. And he makes a complete hash of every stream he pumps his creative juices into. If the writing is outright silly, puerile and full of ‘jokes’ that won’t even make a nitwit smile, the direction tops it by turning the tosh into a test of patience, despite the film’s relieving 1-hour-45-mins run time. The editing, too, fails to cobble all the nonsense together and Joker falls down like a house of cards.

Amid all this barrage of unrelenting idiocy, one’s heart does go out to Akshay Kumar, poor soul foisted with this joke of a film. One also realizes why he’s severed himself from Joker. If being part of such a monstrosity wasn’t embarrassing enough, promoting this drivel would have been adding insult to his injury.

The film has Akshay Kumar playing Agastya, a NASA scientist working on a technology to communicate with aliens, and Sonakshi Sinha his companion, friend and lover. The duo comes to Agastya’s forgotten village Paglapur inhabited by dunderheads like one guy who thinks he’s a lantern, or another (Shreyas Talpade) who speaks gobbledygook, or another (Asrani) who transliterates English to Hindi (like “Don’t fly my joke” for “Mera mazaak mat udao”) or a guy who thinks himself to be a British Lord.

The oddballs are supposed to be funny, but frustrate you. The alien hoax that Agastya and villagers pull off to attract attention to their neglected village is anything but entertaining. The shticks like lighting up the village with firefly lanterns, or making the aliens do the Bollywood bump and grind are downright lame. And if by then you are not cursing yourself for sitting through the movie, you are either fast asleep or resigned to the tomfoolery and horseplay, thereby laughing at the film and not with it. That’s the best resort for a harried viewer: LAUGH AT THIS JOKER.

Performances are nothing to write home about, and the less said about the music the better.

In short, Joker is not even a firework that fizzled out. It’s a downright dud. Watch it only if you have the caliber to laugh at nonsense.

Rating: 1 star for Akshay
