This Game has no fans

21 Apr

You can’t play this ‘Game’ with zest and joy. Despite being made with pure visual delight, detailing many minute things; the suspense thriller ends up as a character-crowded story, with (little) to thrill about.

The story spins around four individuals, who are troubled and they are here to only multiply their troubles. So, we meet a casino owner in Istanbul, Neil Menon (Abhishek Bachchan), a Bombay-based Bollywood star- Vikram Kapoor (Jimmy Shergill), a leading prime ministerial candidate of Thailand- O.P.Ramsay (Boman Irani), a crime journalist from London- Tisha Khanna (Shahana Goswami). All of them are sharing one common thing: A troubled and uncertain life because of their (bad) karma. Neil Menon has to pay a good amount of money to his creditors, which is impossible for him. Vikram Kapoor hits a girl with his car one rainy day and then buries her half dead fearing she could earn his career troubles. O.P.Ramsay is to face mass wrath if scams of his party get exposed. And Tisha Khanna has been caught for drunk driving.

Splice is fun watch

‘Splice’ implies joining or inserting the segments of DNA/RNA to produce or alter a new/existing genetic structure. Vincenzo Natali of ‘Cube’, and ‘Nothing’ fame now pitches on this arguably-peculiar idea, and what he comes up with is a dynamic science fiction horror film, complete with gripping moments, unadulterated emotion and sweeping, to-the-point action.

Teen Thay Bhai is unbrotherly

First, think about the cleverly-done title -‘Teen Thay Bhai’ and we get ready to see what ‘once there were three brothers’ do. Then comes the banging tagline ‘Ek vasiyat 3 musibatt’, giving us a free hint that there is a side-splitting property crux to laugh our lungs out. But as the three brothers grow, as they timidly and actively show why they are here; the film loses its grip and becomes another predictable story of puerile fun.
