Phamous Movie Review

Movie - Phamous
Director - Karan Lalit Butani
Rating - 1/5

We have seen movies on gang wars, rival crime groups and men who value their egos over their lives as well as of their loved ones. Phamous adds nothing much to the same masala except that there is slapstick comedy interspersed in between which sometimes makes you laugh and sometimes, you just cringe!

Shambhu (Jackie Shroff) does not want chaos to descend into his daughter’s wedding. Kadak Singh (Kay Kay) ruthlessly rules over the land he doesn’t own his accomplice Radhe (Jimmy Shergill), the only one with some semblance of a heart, does all the groundwork. However, unlike the others, he is not ready to let his wife’s izzat go down the drain just because she is attractive!

As expected, a lot of bullets get fired, punches and kicks are thrown in with several slangs and raunchy lines. But what bothers you is how actresses like Mahie Gill and Shreya Saran agreed to do a film where they are hardly anything than mere women everyone ogles at! Mahie Gill is seen in just two scenes and we see kids trying to take a peek at her breast. What made these two actresses sign the film? Cos they have absolutely nothing to do!

Phamous could have been way better. Too bad, there is clearly lack of any effort or coherence. It`s truly a waste of such amazing, critically acclaimed actors who did not get any chance to do justice to the characters they played.

Motivated by the modus operandi of how to become “phamous” — to be or not to be is a choice or dilemma for Radhe (Jimmy Sheirgill), a simpleton living in the Chambal Valley. This does not come out strikingly clear in Karan Lalit Bhutani’s directorial venture. Phamous is a simple story of Radhe’s journey. He is a sincere student who is infatuated with his Rosie teacher (Mahie Gill). He is also in awe of the gun wielding, local politician Kadak Singh (Kay Kay Menon). Source : Visit site for more
For lack of a better descriptor, Phamous can be said to be about men and moustaches. The kind of men who lord over the arid hillocks of the Chambal, who shower more affection on their ‘mooch’ than their ‘mashooka’. Or should we hazard the guess that their ‘mooch’ is their ‘mashooka’?

Phamous struggles to justify its existence. Sequences tumble into each other with barely any coherence or sense of rhythm; the talented cast flounders at the best of times. The 114-minute movie looks as though it was made many years ago, when the production values of films about the North Indian hinterland were as low as the mercury levels in winter. There is little value any more in watching rural thugs swagger about with big guns and bigger egos unless there is something new to say about this inescapable Indian reality.
