After having an utterly stressful week at college… I thought of taking a break and going for a movie after god-knows ages, the last movie being Rock-ON!!! !! .. So departing totally tired and lifeless from college I went for the noon show. We decided upon watching LuckByChance. Farhan Akhtar playing the lead role, we expected him to be as natural as he was in the previous movie and to my surprise it was. Actually this movie should’ve been named as rock on 2!! The first movie was musical and the next exceedingly dramatic and OBVIOUS!! It’s the same Farhan, no change in character this was a mere sequel!
The story goes like this. The first 45 mins of the movie is interestingly stoopid and not at all well executed. They try(real bad) to mock whatever happens behind the screens and how people sweet talk and bitch about the ones they hate. A bunch of A grade actors’ are swapped constantly between frames and each ones character, an utter hyperbole. I really don’t know whether this twaddle is for real or the bollywood is truly this thick or all of it was over embellished but it really was making me cranky and restless. This nonsense was stretched to the utmost that you’ll pull your hair down (in my case.. had a great time shouting sarcastically funny comments with friends entertaining ourself and others!!)
Anyways, a very ambitious struggler(!), Vikram(Farhan) from delhi lands in Mumbai to become a star (predictable!!).. next his friends are shown related to the same field in different aspects and advices/ criticizes/ feels jealous (typical drama that happens between friends) of him. Their neighbor(konkana) another struggler(!!!) keeps doing side roles and in time gets really close with vikram(after a coulpe of days they both go to the supermarket together and a day after that sleeps next to each other.. :P). Anyways shes got high hopes of becoming a superstar one day. The man who always gives her hopes for the same cheats her and she ends up giving vikrams photographs to him hoping if not for her he might come across a role for him. Hell yeah he does!!! He gets the lead role in a movie along with a new actress niki (isha) and they get along really well during the shoot and again flirts and sleeps with her. On the other hand, konkana deems she n him are together! (OMG.. whatever happens to bollywood! By this time I was actually ~x( )Later they write crap about them in the magazines and that creates tension between a lot of people.
In the end, Vikram realizes what he’s doing (coz he comes across shah rukh who tells him that no matter how famous or how badly stardom hits you, you should never forget the people who knew you when you were nothing!.. Thanks shah rukh we really needed that for the movie to come to an end!), apologizes to konkana who forgives but doesn’t get back with him. She gets into the TV soaps and an actress(perfect).. and the movie end with that. Frankly speaking the last 45 mins of the movie was good.
Songs will make you cry :( OMG! (excepting one though)!.. S-E-L disappointing, Farhan, Konkana, Hrithik, Blah Blah Blah disappointing.
All in all a painful dissatifaction and a sheer waste of money!
I rate this a 1.5 on 5.
