Nagesh Kukunoor, the name that epitomizes the innovative phases in parallel cinema, takes a tangy twist all-together by swimming with the tide of comical entertainers in BOMBAY TO BANGKOK. This low profile comical stress-buster is quintessentially traveler?s freaking love story where music gets rendered from array of musical talents. After hilariously supreme WELCOME, this comical thriller is another multifaceted compilation of six original soundtracks with as much as four different composers in its credits delivering the needful for a potential hilarious comical ride. Debutante composer duo Ronnie Shirish stems out to be finest among this bankable lot while the successful contemporaries like Salim-Suleiman, Pritam and Sukhwinder Singh composed tracks works mechanically with mood and situation of the film.

After moderate success of HALLA BOL, Sukhwinder Singh gets full throttle in his composition for the title track BOMBAY TO BANGKOK, a contemporary Maharastrian ?Lavani? style of animated offering with tinge of Punjabi folksy flavors. Despite its extra-enthralling paced arrangements, the composition fails to be as enchanting as ?Dil Mein Baaje Guitar? (APNA SAPNA MONEY MONEY) but the infectious euphoria created by rigorous drumming, funky percussive elements with dash of hip-hop sets a tempo for vivaciously cinematic visual appeal.

Pritam maintains his contemporary decorum of hip-hop and rock stylized rendezvous in rejuvenating his hit tracks like ?Falak Dekhun? (GARAM MASALA) and ?Halka Halka Sa Nasha? (CHOCOLATE) into new set of arrangements in ?Dil Ka Haal Sune Dilwala?. The tangy beach eloquence is vividly animated through rip-roaring chorals with electrified synthesizer?s moves, snooty hip-hop getting the youthful mood into right grooves. Sonu Nigam and Sunidhi Chauhan prove to be ideal voices for this contemporarily conceived number while Shabbir Ahmed?s lyrical flows are modestly penned for the occasion.

Shreyas Talpade is soon turning to be the common man?s hero. He gets into character playing the caring son, confused in love idiot, and the fake doctor with aplomb. Watch out for the scene when the two lovers are running around in circles to get into each others rooms in the middle of the night. Also, the scene at the parlour, where Shankar tries to convince Jasmine of his love, and his ?first time? at the parlour.

Lina, the Thai actress oozes of charm and confidence. She is cute, sexy and someone you would want to take home. No wonder Shankar falls for her. Nagesh has chosen his characters well, even the doctors, especially Dr. Rati, who falls in love with the gangster turned rapper. Those scenes too have its moments. You could call it ?moments of madness?. The scene where language is the monster is very cute. Especially when both are trying to tell the other their feelings or even when they are making fun of the names originating from their respective countries!

The title track ?We are same, same but different,? rocks and you want to shake a leg with Shreyas and Lina as they scorch the scene in this dance number.

TO GO OR NOT: For those in love, this is a must-see; for those yet to fall in love, do watch it. And for those who look down on romance, you might just change your stance.

Ratings : 3 / 5

BOMBAY TO BANGKOK is a cute romantic story with its heart in the right place. It also has a subplot within the plot, which comes as a surprise towards the end. What Nagesh Kukunoor tries to portray is that love has no boundaries and can surpass even language barriers. It also overlooks obvious flaws. No matter where you find it, when you do, it?s the most delirious feeling. Here, Nagesh hits the nail on the head.

The narration is simple; there?s nothing over the top and the moments between Shreyas Talpade (Shankar) and Lina Christianson (Jasmine) are handled very romantically.

Nagesh gets straight to the point with his central character, Shankar, and follows his path to Bangkok where cupid strikes and love blossoms. Shankar is a bawarchi working in a local restaurant and one night chances upon a pouch full of money left behind by the local don?s hoodlums. Unable to contain himself, he takes the bag with him, in the hope of getting a better treatment for his ailing mother and a better life for himself. But the goons soon catch up with him and instead of his original destination to Dubai, he masquerades as a doctor and hops on to a chartered flight to Bangkok. In a massage parlour, he chances upon Jasmine and the seeds of love are sown.
