I know I am a bit late with this one, but I decided to write a review for the new Indian zombie version/spoof of Resident Evil and The walking dead. So the movie begins with the two stars Kunal Khemu and Vir Das who work in Mumbai and their life is nothing but full of dope and chicks. Anand Tiwari is a rather simple small town guy who is the wittiest of them all but is away from anything even close to resemblance to his two room mates. Kunal Khemu or 'Hardik' gets on the verge of losing in job while Vir Das or 'Luv' tackles his life with his 'Luvless' relationship. The three men eventually plan to take a break and land up in India's sincity Goa.
While Hardik tries his charms with girls, Luv meets his facebook acquaintance 'Luna' or Puja Gupta who invites him to a rave party on an island just outside Goa, thrown by a Russian Mafia 'Bores' or Saif Ali Khan. As the trio crash the party and spend the night away; they wake up the next morning surrounded by flesh-craving Zombies. The movie continues as how they hilariously fight for their life on this lonely zombie-infested island and how they are re-united with Luna and Bores.
I was quite surprised to see how flawlessly the directors Raj Nidimoru and Krishna have delivered a movie so funny and so ridiculously scary to a population who has never really shown a taste in Zombie apocalypse. The dialogues were quite fair to the story line but some seats literally made me laugh my guts off. I can tell you one thing for sure, Bollywood has set up a new benchmark in the humor genre of the cinema. The acting skills were decent but the delivery was over the top. I give this movie a 3 out of 5 stars.
Now why did I discount the last 2 stars is because though the movie was quite different from the current bollywood scene; I believe the dialogues could have been worked on a little more. And though the director has done a good job; I feel that there was not enough humour in the movie. The movie is full of extremes when it comes to humour; some scenes were hilarious while some were simply dumb and lame. So if you want to really watch this movie; I would suggest you rather wait for the television premier than going to a cinema
