Vaah! Life Ho To Aisi August 27, 2006

Posted by Sai in Hindi, Movies, Reviews.

I watched this movie after multiple critics said that this was an enjoyable kiddie movie. However, I beg to differ. This movie was supposedly a mix of Mr India and comedies featuring Yamraj. The main protagonist being responsible for a bunch of kids is what resembles Mr India. However, the kids serve no real purpose in the movie (apart from the fact that the kids in the audience might get excited). The attempt at humor with the kids and Shahid in the initial parts of the movie is lame and the dialogue is artificial. The movie drags for a bit till the introduction of Sanjay Dutt as Yamraj. Also the introduction of another kid to keep Shahid company was totally unnecessary (except of course for the target audience). Some people seemed to like the overly emotional Yamraj but I found it kinda stupid. The best part of the movie for me is the cameo by Arshad Warsi and some of the scenes featuring Sanjay Dutt. Mahesh Manjrekar (who I think is overrated) gets points for an imaginative depiction of Yamraj and the visual effects were decent but thats about it. Shahid is not adept at comedy but is bearable. Amrita Rao does not have much to do in the movie. Suhasini Mulay is wasted. This is a bad movie. If you want to watch a movie with lots of kids, watch Mr India again, where the kids actually have something sensible to do. If you want to watch a comedy featuring Yamraj, watch the telugu flicks like Yamaleela and Yamagola or their Hindi remakes. Kids may find it somewhat entertaining but everyone else can safely avoid this one.
