KRAZZY 4 is about four patients from a mental asylum. But, of the four, two seem to be perfectly normal. If you certify someone with a fetish for cleanliness and one with no control over his anger to the loony bin, then I presume half of the city should be there, considering most are on a short fuse. Also, ‘Mr Angry Young Man’ and ‘Dr Fetish For Cleanliness’ show no signs of mental degradation. So the basic premise falls flat.
The remainder of the two, one who lives in the past and another who hardly ever speaks are borderline mental patients. Putting the four together hardly makes any sense, and for a movie, which relies on comedy, there is hardly ever any.
Arshad Warsi (Raja) is ‘Mr Angry Young Man’, Irrfan Khan (Dr Mukherjee) is ‘Dr Fetish For Cleanliness’, Rajpal Yadav (Gangadhar) lives in the past while Suresh Menon (Dabboo) hardly ever speaks. One day, Juhi Chawla (Dr Sonali) decides to take them to watch a cricket match ‘live’ and while she stops the car to pick up some papers from her office, she is kidnapped, and the four are left loose on the streets. There is also Dia Mirza, Raja’s love interest, who works for Aaj Tak. Is she being branded as a television anchor? She was one in SHOOTOUT AT LOKHANDWALA as well!
Performance wise, none stand out; the poor script does not allow them to. So the only interest remains the ‘Special dances’ of Shah Rukh Khan and Hrithik Roshan. While SRK performs an item number with a bevy of beauties, Hrithik comes in after the credits have rolled with a solo dance performance. No prizes for guessing who the better dancer is. Hrithik wins hands down.
The only person laughing I guess is music director Ram Sampath who won Rs 2 crore in a landmark judgment that went against the Roshans. The Roshans had apparently plagiarised his tune for the movie. Sampath went to court and the judiciary ruled in his favour.
