A movie review

Raavan- A cure for insomniacs

Actor : Character -- Role
Abhishek : Bheera--bandit
Aishwarya : Ragini--annoying wife of Vikram
Vikram : Droooooooll--police officer or SP or DGP or something droollll
Govinda : God knows--monkey left to roam free, due to human error


Vikram drooolll.... comes to capture Bheera. Instead, Bheera captures Ragini. Vikram with that let loose monkey and several other extras dressed in army outfits (really army to capture a bandit?) set out to bring back Ragini and to catch Bheera.

Scene 1: Interaction between Bheera and Ragini, part 1

Bheera- bak bak bak jhik jhik jhik

Ragini- screech I am not afraid of you..I am not afraid of death screeechhh…

Bheera- bak bak jhik jhik

Scene 2:

Vikram drool drip drip… comes to the place where Ragini was held captive. He sees her dress, drops on the ground.

Dream scene-

Ragini in ultra short blouse and low waist saree calls herself a classical dancer, teaches dance to 50 kids in her cramped 1 bedroom flat.

Ragini- jatak matak ooo look at my tiny waist jatak and my smooth skin matak matak…I can’t act but who cares.

Vikram – my dear Raginiiiii…boohoooo….

End of dream scene

Scene 3: Interaction between Bheera and Ragini, part 2

Bheera- bak bak bak jhik jhik jhik

Ragini- screechhhhhhhhhhhhhhh …arches eyebrows, fake tears..screechhhh… Thank god for water-proof eyeliners screechhh.....

Scene 4: Bheera and Vikram clash on a bridge

Vikram- ohh look at my muscles, they look so good in this ultra tight Roopa baniyan. Dishumm dishum

Bheera- Saalee… dishum

London Bridge is falling down, falling down, both of them too.

Scene 5: Who gets Ragini?

Bheera emerges.

Bheera- I am donating you to that guy. Have fun.

Bheera disappears.

Vikram emerges.

Vikram- Awesome baniyan material, I fell 30 ft not a hole in the cloth. Must get some more.

Vikram- Ragini, I can see that you are ok. Where is Bheera? Dammit I missed him. Next time.

Ragini- Bats eyelids..fake tears. Haila! my heroooo…

Scene 6: Agni..something

Vikram- You must have done some hanky-panky with Bheera no? You were with him for 14 days and 14 NIGHTS.

Ragini- What rubbish. Who told you so?

Vikram- Bheera only. If you are really telling the truth take a polygraph test. (I SWEAR this is what he tells her).

Ragini- What?! Arches eyebrows, bats eyelids…Noooo…

Vikram- Stop your eye exercise, you are making me nauseas.

Ragini- Gasp! How rude!

Pulls the red lever meant to stop a train during emergency.

Vikram- Who is going to pay the fine for pulling that lever? Your maama?

Scene 7: Ragini confronts Bheera

Ragini- What did you tell my pati?

Bheera- That you are even more shiny and pure than 24ct gold.

Ragini- Pupils dialate. Reaaallyyyyy??? How shweettt…. Vikram didn’t believe me, he said things. Things that I cannot tell you in public. Fake tears….

Bheera- Really? Will you stay with me?

Ragini- Arches eyebrows, bats eyelids…giggle

Bheera- I love what you do with your eyes

Ragini- arches eyebrows, bats eyelids…giggle

Bheera- Waiiiiiiitttttt a minitteee… Does he know you are here? He has used you as a bait to locate me.

Ragini- Chee don’t be silly. If he had that much budhi, he would have caught you long ago.

Scene 8: Last scene THANK GOD.

Tan tan tanadannnnaaaannnnnnnnnnn…

Vikram comes with the entire Indian army and all the Alsatian dogs in Bangalore.

Vikram- Hasta la vista Bheera..

Ragini- Noooo… eess koo maath maarooo….

Vikram- Ragini, come I will get you the Cover girl lash blast mascara, come here.

Ragini- sachi muchi? Ok.

Doom doom doom…

Bheera- ahhhh….

Dudhak. RIP.

The End.
Rating- 2/10 (2 is only for Vikram). Mani Ratnam please take VRS.

PS1- This piece is dedicated to my friend K who is struggling in Basel without entertainment.

PS2- I am sorry this space was ignored for so many months. I am occupied with other things right now and this space shall be dusted occasionally.

PS3- Its not good to take such long breaks. It took me so long to write this crap review, you guys better leave a nice comment, if you are leaving one.

PS 4- To that nut job who is leaving me a comment in Chinese or Japanese or Korean for the Dorie Greenspan post, stop it. I get it that you like the cookie but you don’t have to leave a comment every week!!


  1. Where were you all these days? Missed you.
    Will read the review and comment again. Just wanted to say this first.

  2. Hahahahaha, I thought you liked AB junior? You changed loyalties?
    I would not watch this film, even if I stay an insomniac forever....thanks for the fantastic review. I wonder who wrote the dialogues for AB.

  3. What a big-bang way to come back SJ :) Pliss to not take such long breaks.

    'Vikram- Stop your eye exercise, you are making me nauseas.' - How could she stop that when that was the only thing she had to do in the whole movie :)

    LOL@ baniyan material - thank god the movie had some purpose, even if it were to prove how durable the baniyans were :)

  4. hohoho! Water proof mascara sales are going to go up :D

  5. funny review, granted. but covers only 1% of what the movie contained. actors are the most visible but not the only component in a movie na?

  6. Nice Review dear..It was fun reading it....

  7. hehehe.. i think u shud promote this review of urs. its def more entertaining than the movie. I haven't yet seen it. thq god!

  8. Nags take sane review-
    I NEVER watch movies without reading reviews, this was one exception yappa such a costly mistake 22$+10$ for popcorn and soda+2hr18mins wasted watching this crap+30mins drive to the theatre. Mega royal waste. Sorry the movie is a total disaster.

    To the rest- Don't even watch it on CD.

  9. hahahha Shobha De??? I'd rather take your own review to that :)

    I loved the movie (even though I am not even a Vikram-drooling fan let alone any of the other actors).

  10. Nags, good that you like me more than Shobha de. You liked it I hated it no big deal. The End.

  11. arreey, don't get defensive :) yeah its no big deal and doesn't make a rat's ass difference to how well (or not) the movie will do.

    u take care and think positive thoughts :D

  12. Oye go. I am going to bed. Tata.

  13. that was the coolest thing i read all week... nice one yaar.... now i'll never see the film... instead i'll refer my frenz to this review... its more entertainging that the film itself :)

  16. What a comeback post, SJ!! So good to read you again!

    "Vikram- Ragini, come I will get you the Cover girl lash blast mascara, come here."--LOL!! That was classic! Vikram is sure is drool-drip worthy,no?? Sad even he couldnt save the movie!!

  17. SJ welcome back!! I want to watch Vikram! IS he really droolsome? I havent drooled in ages...I want to watch this movie just to drool..
