|Siddhu and Ileana are as shocked as I.|
I had no idea what I was going for but because of the picture of my DVD cover I mistakingly thought that this would be a historical movie. I really don´t know what made me think that, maybe it was Sid´s long hair and the peacock feather and the more or less traditional outfit that Ileana sports. I don´t know, the picture just had a very past-times feeling for me.

What comes next is really... WTF!? The evil guy decides he wants to marry Ileana, Siddhu befriends him, the villain´s Ma is really crazy, Siddhu´s father disappears into nowhere, Siddhu and Ileana make out in front of the villain, he doesn´t notice, Brahmi can tell you the future and much much more.
First, I think that Siddharth had real fun shooting this movie. He looks so excited in every frame, playing this happy-go-lucky guy who lives in his filmi world and walks around like a movie star. The role gives him space to display his wide range as an actor. He can be funny, he can be silly, he can be OTT, he can dance, he can be dramatic or romantic, it´s all there. And all the while he is drop-dead charming and full of charisma. Let´s just say it: Siddhu is a good actor.
(Although I must ask: What is wrong with his hair? I haven´t seen one movie where he´s got a good haircut. Never heard of hair stylists, Siddhu? I´m sure Bunny or Cherry could help...)
|Happy Siddharth. And can I say that this is one of the funniest scenes I ever saw? Siddhu´s acting and Ileana´s expressions are priceless.|
|The villain and his Ma. The well known "Mere paas Ma hai" gets a whole new meaning with those two.|
where Sri suggests to have sex (not literally, of course, but it´s obvious), Satya doesn´t shrink back, defending the holy status of her virginity, she just shrugs and goes with it. Which was really refreshing.
Nevertheless, the film IS a little raunchy. Siddhu and Ileana get wet every two seconds, some of the song picturisations are really into-your-face, (like the one song in Karan Arjun, you know, Jaati Hoon Main?), especially Ninnu Choostunte, sung by Siddhu himself and some of the interactions between Sid and Ileana are a little... expressive.
But hey, who am I complaining? Overall the film is an entertainer, the cinematgraphy is good, I even found Brahmi funny which doesn´t happen often, Siddhu and Ileana have good chemistry, the villain is crazy and his Ma even crazier, I would recommend it anytime.
