What is all about
This is bloody funny.. Eros International and Illuminati films 'Go Goa Gone' is an unexpected ray of sunshine in Bollywood's comedy genre and is not at all ashamed of being little red.
After proving their smarts with 'The Shor in the City' Krishna D.K. and Raj Nidimoru makes Bollywood breathe fresh by introducing this wacky zombie genre pumping new life into b-town comedies with subtle visual humor and a smart, impish sense of fun.
'Horror' genre in India is always under test from the Hollywood litmus and we are still struggling after RGV's 'Bhooth'.. the remarkable achievement of Krishna D.K. and Raj Nidimoru in their very first introduction to a zom com convince us that they are clearly fans of the genre by cleverly balancing the scares and the wit for a bloody good zombie movie with loads of fun. Well done.
Krishna D.K., Sita Menon and Raj Nidimoru all together put a basic plot but makes the situations and sequences interesting where Hardik (Kunal Khemu) loves life and always wants to be on a high.. Luv (Vir Das) is a victim of a broken relationship, Bunny (Anand Tiwari) the serious one has an important assignment in Goa. Hardik and Luv tag along Bunny on his office trip where Luv comes across Luna Puja Gupta) who invites him to an exclusive rave party on a remote island. The party is the brainchild of Russian mafioso Boris (Saif Ali Khan) to launch the ultimate party drug. But the party goes horribly wrong... All of a sudden, they are accosted by zombies!
What to look out for
An entertainer right from the world 'Go' when we see Hardik and Luv eyes glued to the amazing tribute to Michael Jackson most popular zombie video 'Thriller' by Telugu superstar Chiranjeevi in that video we are assured of some crack jack fun and Krishna and oblige.
The writers Krishna D.K., Sita Menon and Raj Nidimoru take care that the characters are identifiable, likable enough that you don,t want to see them get chewed.. although Go Goa Gone is grisly funny it also manages to add a sweet ode to friendship and love.
The dialogues the lingo, the language all is in sync. Krishna D.K. and Raj Nidimoru prove that we may have to wait longer for a serious horror like 'Bhooth' but horror movies can really be funny in bollywood and for that the wait is over. The violent humor of 'Goa Goa Gone' is also backed by the required energy and pace making it a pleasant outing for the fans of gross-out humor everywhere...
Music directors Sachin-Jigar get a special pat on their back for fitting in perfectly for this on screen dead men party fun 'Babaji Ki Booty' is the 'pick' of the lot. Jordi Cirbian sound mixing lifts the mood of the film. Dan Macarthur and Lukasz Pruchnik cinematography is first rate. Production values are of high standards.
Kunal Khemu is terrific. Vir Das is easy and effortless. Anand Tiwari is brilliant. These three seems to enjoying the party by their wonderful chemistry. Puja Gupta is fine.
Last but not the least Saif Ali Khan as Boris is tremendous as the Russian gangster thoroughly enjoyable. Great fun.
Some may not like the grisliness and more innovations were expected during the end portions.
Conclusion: Go Goa Gone is an experience both for those are lured by this genre and for those who want to know how fear and danger can be so bloody funny. Plus it's also a wacky way to say 'No' to drugs..' Go Goa Gone' is a 'laughing buddha' on screen.. try it u will find a new wacky funny high.
