Democratic right of ‘Freedom to Speech’ assumes its demonic form while writing reviews for such films..he.he..
Kambakkht Ishq is a crass film right from the start. It degrades females as bimbettes constantly referring Simrita [Kareena Kapoor] with the B-word, as if it’s a compliment.
Supposed to be promoted as a family entertainer, it would be a shocking example if any couple has taken their parents or kids to watch this movie.
Viraj [Akshay Kumar] as a high profile, male chauvinist stuntman in Hollywood is acceptable but Simrita as a surgeon cum supermodel is completely unbelievable. Of the doctors that I know they are such obsessive people that their glasses foam up after they finish their daily dose of studying. When did Kareena have the time of pouting and then studying at her college in short frills? Actually Kareena’s character is of female chauvinist ‘Poo’ revived again.
The curry masala dossier of Bollywood is added to the story to spruce it up for some emotional tears and laughing jerks, but you get none rather than a smirk. Viraj and Simrita meeting up at their friend Lucky’s [Aftab Shivdasani] and Kamini’s [Amrita Arora] marriage goes well down with our brains which we anyways have left back at our house.
Fast forward to the OT where ‘surgeon’ Simrita has left behind her watch in ‘stuntman’ Akshay’s belly. She wants it out, but Viraj is stout, so she seduces him, jabs him with an injection, cuts him, and removes the watch that sings ‘Mangalam- Mangalam’. Akshay suggest and Kareena rejects. He then jogs back to Denisse Richards who wants to make ‘golden babies’ with him (aah..spaniel?) and Simrita now accepts completing the vicious circle.
Akshay Kumar constantly promotes himself as a family man, then he zips himself down on the ramp, gets himself in jail in real life and promotes himself in degradable movies. What double standards..wow!..Kareena Kapoor..she is supposed to read scripts ‘twice’ thoroughly before she signs a film..was this script her lullaby before sleeping?
Kareena Kapoor’s best friend (Amrita Arora) needs a life! Aftab Shivdasani is a director’s actor. If the director says, jump off the train, he will. So when the direction is so bad, no guesses what Aftab is like.
Looks like Sylvester Stallone and Dennise Richards haven’t yet realised what has hit them. Otherwise they wouldn’t have done such as crap movie. Minuscule one minute roles..that’s all what they have got.
Even if you want to get up and leave the film in disgust, say ‘what the heck! I have my samosa left, let’s finish it off with the coke and leave’
