Comedy is not everyone's cup-of-tea. They who think it is easy to make people laugh are living in a fool's paradise. Shatrughan Sinha lost esteem by producing a non-starter (non-starrer as well) Mera Dil Leke Dekho. Directed by debutant Rohit Kaushik, this one lacks the very sense that makes humour appealing.

After suffering Whacko Jackie in the inspid `Bhoot Unkle', one is treated to creeps as he tries to tickle the funny bone with Big Ethel Archana Puran Singh. To add to the woes, Jatin'Lalit's swan song music score is not even an iota of their last release `Fanaa'. It's been a hectic week with a surfeit of smallies releasing simultaneously and I have to catch another one soon. So, allow me to give you a doze of this tear-jerker-comedy that never makes you laugh.

`MDLD' revolves around London-bred Punjabi Koel Purie, who dreams of marrying anyone-able-n-eligible. When Puneet Tejwani tries to woo her, she immediately starts dreaming him as her husband with wedding garb and the other paraphernalia. Now, it's straight so far, but then it starts taking dig at gays, bi-sexuals and in fact anything to do with sex.

Jackie Shroff is shown to be a skirt-chaser. And whoever thought that making a comedy spiced up by sex-n-sin shall go down well with people must be a moron. All the supposedly cool jokes are not happening at all. Everybody thinks the one-next-door is having an affair with someone. There's too much of confusion and it seems the director and the writer must have had trouble fitting in way too many `inspirations' from Hollywood C-graders.

Koel Purie wastes herself. She was no great talent to start with. Archana Puran Singh hams-n-haws while Jackie Shroff is too-much-in-debt for how else can he explain acting in such a movie as this. I Can't give any more credibility to such a senseless experience as this. I guess it's time for me to suffer another non-starrer. And I though watching movies was fun. Never mind..
