Aap Ka Surroor – The Moviee July 15, 2007

The much hyped acting debut of singer-composer (and former Television producer) Himesh Reshammiya is a musical thriller where Himesh plays himself. This numerologically challenged film is a simple whodunit interwoven with a love story with Himesh being the main suspect of a murder who is required to absolve himself from the blame and get back together with his girl.

Director Prashant Chadha designs the film well around Himesh’s popularity. The publicity surrounding the film told fans that they would get to know why he rarely smiles and why he wears a cap and so on. All that is fine since the film is devised to make money based on Himesh’s image. The foreign locales are used well and the glossy look gives the feel of a big film. The screenplay (Vibha Singh) is far from believable but the real letdown is the lack of thrilling moments. The best part of the movie is the music by Himesh (and the background score by Amar Mohile isn’t bad either).

Himesh’s emoting capabilities are limited but his dialogue delivery is good. He isn’t very expressive (I don’t know if that was meant to be an extension of his HR persona) but staunch supporters might be satisfied. Hansika Motwani (Desamuduru) is alright in the looks department but her acting leaves a lot to be desired. Hansika is only a marginally better actor than Himesh. The supporting cast isn’t strong either. Mallika Sherawat has a special appearance (for which she was apparently paid 1.5 crores) which has limited scope. The best performer in the film is Shravan (Kuch Meetha Ho Jaaye) who plays Himesh’s friend and gets the best lines (and he also gets to dance as Himesh doesn’t).

There are people who hate Himesh Reshammiya and then there are an unbelievably large number of fans that love him. Both these groups are equally passionate in their opinions/feelings. I belong to neither category as I was away from the hype and hoopla surrounding him as he became a phenomenon. From what I’ve heard. his concerts bring in bigger crowds than those featuring multiple stars from the industry. He may not have a particularly likable voice but he can sing (and if we were to talk about nasal voices, I would prefer Himesh over Kumar Sanu any day). He may not be able to act but he can certainly bring in the crowds as this film has indicated (apparently, the openings in India are on par with Dhoom 2 and Krrish – source: Indiafm.com). After watching this film, I can say that it is a simple film that isn’t particularly intelligent/exciting/engrossing but it ain’t a bad one. If you love Himesh, you might want to check this out. If you hate him, you might want to see this for opportunities to ridicule him. If you don’t belong to either of those groups, watch this if you want to see what the fuss is all about. And if you don’t really care… well you shouldn’t have been reading this far!
