De Gaali!


When was the last time you saw a movie when u literally felt your brain cells rotting away as you continue watching the silly set of frames put together, reportedly called a “movie”?
When was the last time you saw a movie so stupid, so pointless and so, so irritating that it makes you want to stand up right in the middle of the theatre and cry for mercy?
Here’s the answer to all your prayers, the perfect gift for someone you hate:
A ticket to ‘De Taali’.

Director: E.Niwas (Don’t recall the name? The same great director who gave us some of Hindi cinema’s biggest accomplishments in the form of timeless classics such as ‘Love Ke Liye Kuch Bhi Karega’, ‘Dum’ amongst other such brilliant masterpieces.)

Cast (or rather Miscast): Aftab Shivdasani , Riteish Deshmukh, Ayesha Takia, Rimi Sen.

The Plot: It’s about love and friendship, how over a period of time the individuals ferment into the responsible, loving children every parent’s proud of and blah blah… Who am I kidding? The best part about the movie is there is absolutely no plot. It’s like everyday the director came to the sets full of ideas and concepts and began shooting, eventually summing them up calling it yet another one of his masterpieces!

The viewer’s treated to a series of mindless events in the life of a few people neither the director nor the viewer cares about after the first few minutes. Horrible acting and the sensibility of a five-year old in writing the screenplay makes it the torture that it is. Music, by the ever dependable Vishal-Shekhar is the only savior for this horrendous effort by the makers and the effect of which too is diluted by terrible picturisation.

At one point of time in the movie, Riteish Deshmukh allegedly tortures Rimi Sen by strapping her to a chair and making her watch ‘Ram Gopal Varma Ki Aag’. Well I’m sure filmmakers in the future can now consider ‘De Taali’ as a milestone and use it for such references and give further such stupid offerings from Ram Gopal Varma & Yash Chopra a break.

To sum it up, a horrible, painful exercise to watch this flick. It’s one of those rare movies that have the potential to put someone off Hindi cinema forever. Please Please give it a miss if you have any concern for your brain cells.
