This Hindi remake of the surprise Gujarati hit CHELLO DIVAS by Krishnadev Yagnik is a joke on its own.
Plagued by lack of novelty and innovation to tickle the funny bones nationwide, DAYS OF TAFREE struggles even to meet the minimum demands of its genre, resulting in a prolonged torturous boredom.
Revolving around the friendship between these four college friends - Nikhil (Yash Soni), skirt chaser Vicky (Ansh Bagri), looser Suresh (Sanjay Goswami) and angry man Dulha (Sarbjit Bindra). Writer director Krishnadev Yagnik's Hindi version turns out to be an uninteresting, tedious and not at all funny.
Wondering whether this remake was more of a commercial gamble considering the surprise box office kick of the Gujarati original which is believed to have worked due to its regional lingo, accent and control on vulgarity. CHELLO DIVAS was loud in its parts but was certainly clear all the way but alas! Krishnadev Yagnik in its Hindi version fails miserably.
Starts off decently with Nikhil, Vicky, Suresh and Dulha returning from a pub in guzzled state, while waiting for their car a speedy vehicle knocks down Vicky and he is taken to hospital. While Nikhil is struggling in ICU, his four friends and Nikhil's girlfriend Pooja (Nimisha Mehta) recollects their days of tafree (fun, masti, freak out) in the college campus and our test of patience begins. In the end, all ends well as the movie gets over.
Flat jokes, minimum humour and cliched predictability control this suppose screw ball which turns into a bheja boil of the year.
Two episodes - the one in the coffee shop and the one where Dulha is introduced provide laughter.
Rest we have nothing to say about this disaster which sees some earnest performance from its cast go in vain.
Krishnadev Yagnik with DAYS OF TAFREE has created a double murder of sorts, in the name of remake the writer director has made a cheap rip-off of the original and killed both while doing so.
