Recently, Soha Ali Khan had stated that she hopes that Guddu Ki Gun changes things for her hubby Kunal Kemmu (we all know she meant it gives a boost to the actor’s career). Kunal, too, said that he had consulted Soha before signing the film. Well, Soha, why on earth did you recommend this movie to your husband?
The movie is about Guddu (Kunal Kemmu), a salesman who sells washing powder. He is “unbiased” when it comes to “satisfying” women of all shapes and age. One day, he wakes up to realise that his most precious tool has turned into gold. How? Well, the grandfather of one of the girls with whom he had sex cursed him into this. Now there are three people who are after his gold ‘gun’ – a press reporter who wants to make a story on it, a don, and an antique seller. Will Guddu’s gun be normal again? Or will one of these men bag the gun for forever?
Guddu Ki Gun is written by Shantanu Ray Chhibber and Sheershak Anand. The only question I would like to ask the writers is, “What were you thinking while writing the script?” Well, it’s a nice concept (not the whole story, we are just talking about the one-line concept) which could have been turned into a good film. But, it looks like the writers were too lazy to develop the script in a better way. The movie just keeps on going aimlessly. The sequences are not at all hilarious; on the contrary, they are boring. There were several times when I actually felt that I should get up and move out of the theatre. The screenplay is extremely pathetic. Waiting at the bus stop for 130 minutes is much better than watching this film. The movie was pitched as an adult comedy; leave alone being an adult comedy, it’s not even comedy. Well, the climax will remind you of a Priyadarshan movie where the whole cast comes together and there’s a lot of chaos. There’s a Mughal-e-Azam scene in the movie, which gives you a reason to LOL at times. Bas, that’s it! The writers also try to give a message – ‘Khubsoorat nahi Khubseerat dekho’. And after this dialogue mouthed by Guddu’s friend Laddoo, the former falls in love with an ugly girl.
Directors Shantanu-Sheershak are the ones responsible for penning this pathetic script. Their direction is equally bad. We request Shantanu and Sheershak to spare us from coming up with such a bad film again. Cinematography is strictly okay and editing is worse than the story and direction.
I feel pity on Kunal Kemmu that he has to do such horrible films. The actor tries his level best to make this film watchable, but the story and direction is so bad that even he fails to save the movie. Kunal, it’s time to pull up your socks and do some content-driven films to prove your mettle as an actor. Payel Sarkar, famously known for her role in TV serial Ladies Special, is one of the lead actresses in the film. And she is totally wasted. She is shown as the ugly girl; and believe us, her make-up is so badly done that it clearly looks fake. Then there is Aparna Sharma who makes her debut with the film. Her acting is so pathetic that she is not even eligible for getting a Golden Kela Award. The only two people who shine in the star cast are Sumeet Vyas and Flora Saini. Sumeet’s supporting act is really impressive and Flora plays the role of a South Indian nurse to the T.
The music of the film will give you a headache. Every song in the film is irritating. In a bid to entertain the audiences ala “Lagaave Tu Jo Lipistick”, they have also included a stupid song on Valentine’s Day. And that reminds me, throughout the movie, you’ll notice wet roads. How come it is raining around V-day?
Well, I was thinking to give the film zero star, but I am going with a half star. This half star is also for the Mughal-e-Azam sequence in the climax, and for Kunal, Sumeet and Flora.
Guddu Ki Gun Movie Review Final Verdict:
Overall, Guddu Ki Gun is an absolutely ‘Gun-di’ film which is not worth even 10 minutes of your time.
