Pyaasa - Yukta Mukhi should only contest beauty contests, Aftaab does well

Over the weekend we saw Pyaasa starring Aftab Shivdasani, Yukta Mukhi and some new gay looking guy. The movie is directed by some South director and the music is very so-so. All the actors bomb miserably though Aftaab shines and I think all other heroes like Abhishekh Bacchan and Hritik Roshan who have not had a hit in a long time should get to do such roles.

The story and my review in point form as usual -
  • Aftaab son of a middle class father who owns some land and collects rent from tenants.
  • Aftaab does no work and is happy go lucky local area bhai and is referred as "chia" (eeekss... what a name)
  • Gay looking newcomer is son of Aftab's father's younger brother. Aftaab's chacha is very rich while Aftaab's father is not.
  • Aftaab a total tapori. Gay looking cousin very "adarsh putra, pyaara bhai" and "very smart businessman". Always successful at deals in crores and crores... never heard of lakhs or thousands.
  • Aftaab hates cousin and wants to make tons of money himself.
  • Aftaab gets arrested for some small time cheating of fake certificates to get a job.
  • Stupid looking "adarsh bhai" arranges bail for "chia".
  • Yukta Mukhi spots "chia" and offers a job with salary of 50,000
  • Chia starts by making bettre business deals and defeating "adarsh putra" in deals.
  • Yukta keeps cooing -"Tumne meri jindagi bada dali Chia" Yeah right - you made me act and show the world that I am dumb broad.
  • Chia thinks Yukta loves him
  • Gay looking brother engaged to some hot chick
  • Chia is asked by Yukta to break up the relationship as she loves Gay looking brother
  • Chia heartbroken but does it anyway as he is "sacrificing" his love for Yukta's love (puuuhleeeeaaassseee... )
  • Actually Yukta is doing all this to avenge her father's downfall at the hands of Gay looking guy's father years ago.
  • Gay dude's father - younger brother of Chia's father - has cheated Yukta' father and is now the "jaydaad ka maalik"
  • Yukta has two socundrel brothers and she tells them that Chia is just a pawn.
  • Yukta is using Chia's "daulat ki laalach" to make him do things for her.
  • Chia heartbroken
  • Gay dude learns of his father's wrong doings and hands over entire "jaydaad" to Yukta (wow.. Harishchandra in 2003 )
  • Chia does one up on all and takes over all of Yukta's property.
  • Chia forces that Yukta should marry him.
  • At the wedding he realises all are so forlorn and sad. Even gay dude is trying to smile hard.
  • Finally decides - after lengthy monologues and blaming everyone else for making him a "daulat ka laalchi" - to let gay dude marry Yukta as Yukta really loves gay dude
  • Gay dude had saved Yukta's life and she realises that "Saachi pyar karta hain mujhse aur main bhi"
  • Yukta's scoundrel brothers use guns and after some dhisum dhishum Aftaab gets shot.
  • Aftaab dies
  • All watch and cry
  • Audience.... goes to kitchen for a beer or anything to quench their "pyaas"
  • In a self promise to heap same "pyaas" on others, audience decides to write a review

Honestly, those who like Aftaab will love his acting. I dont hate nor love Aftaab as a hero but I found him to be good. The rest of the film was more like corporate board room politics plus Hindi family values plus melodrama plus insipid music all rolled into one.

Watch it if you have nothing else to do.

Talking Stupid

Have you ever read the story at the back of the DVD before renting it or you just rent it and then complain about it?

Sorry dude.... I did not rent a DVD.. Usually our local desi video rental store has more copies on VHS and just a couple on DVD.
