Bollywood Zombie Comedy ‘Go Goa Gone’ that released today on 10th May 2013 is worth watching for multiple reasons. Following the footsteps of Hollywood, this time director Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK have taken a new subject ‘Zombie’ and have succeed in their attempt for its entertaining elements like the super-comedy sequences by the comic-trio and the Russian get-up wearing golden wigged Saif Ali Khan.
Plot – Hardik (Kunal Khemu), Luv (Vir Das) and Bunny (Tiwari) are off for a business trip at Goa. They come across a beautiful babe Luna (Puja Gupta) who heedlessly invites them to an exclusive underground rave party on a remote island.
Host of the party is a Russian gangster – Saif Ali Khan (Boris), who happens to be a zombie-hunter. After some time, when the party goes terribly wrong the real adventure begins and out of the blue the friends find them buttonholed by zombies!
Now fenced in the zombie island, the guys find a savior in Boris and the trio wake up to a deserted island infected with zombies.
Review – First of all the film deserves credit for being a totally different Bollywood movie. It has taken up a new subject ‘Zombie’. The topic was used in Bollywood for the first time in ‘Rise of the Zombie’, but it actually hit the target with this flick.
In the new and creative get-up of a Russian Gangster cum Zombie hunter, Saif Ali Khan looks cool with his Russian-accented, burnt-haired, heavily-tattooed avatar. The veteran actor even enters into the skin of his character and must be commended for his approach.
One of the three – Kunal Khemu this time excels with his comedy scenes. You’ll love and laugh to watch the guy. Also the new face Vir Das is funny with his expressions and comic timing.
In this male populated and new subject flick Puja Gupta, the Miss India hottie, gets less scope to show her talent. Still she is lovable onscreen.
The subject ‘Zombie’ has several times been dealt in Hollywood and now Bollywood has also adapted the same. Interestingly, once you watch the movie you’ll be convinced that we are not far behind. Again, the decision of shooting the film in Goa is a clever one as foreigners in the background has elevated the sequential feeling more. We don’t know about all, but younger generation should love the film.
Go Goa Gone is a madcap comedy as well as entertainer. The flick is funny, amusing, humorous, crazy and thoroughly engaging.
‘Go Goa Gone’s music is already a chart-buster. Especially, the songs ‘Slowly Slowly’, ‘Baba Ki Booty’ and ‘Khoon Choos Le’, which is presently the Youth-Favorite.
Verdict- ‘Go Goa Gone’ comes in the ‘must watch’ category for the three boys along with their gibes and Saif Ali Khan’s new avatar. More than that, if you love watching ‘Zombies’ and enjoy comedy, then this is the right film for you to go for watch once.
