Sick. Sick.. As unbelievable as a sour rotten , kishmish.. this so called detective comedy makes us go through the most bizarre nightmare revealing a shocking horror of having five well known comedians that includes the king Johnny Lever, India's no .1 stand up Vir Das, exceptional talent like Boman Irani, the brilliant Vijay Raaz and the amazing Sanjay Mishra all coming together to ensure that we don,t laugh at all. ha ha.. hee hee... laughter going udanchoo somewhere in Honollulu.. man you made us ullu.. Owl.. time for a brawl...


Seriously, a detective should be hired to find out how astonishingly director Akashdeep Sabir and his writers (oh teri.. .. they had two of them - Pawan Soni and Asad Ajmeri) managed to achieve this feat in this Fiji sponsored picnic.. hic.. hic..

Nothing, absolute nothing can be singled out, underlined or can be highlighted in this detective comedy flick that features Boman Irani as Santa and Vir Das as Banta - based on the popular fictional characters Santa Singh and Banta Singh used for creating and circulating jokes..

This touted detective comedy about the undercover agents Santa and Banta landing in Fiji to solve a case is more a joke on the viewer - a practical black humour and a bad one where the helpless audience is forced to exercise his right to observe 'silence' right from the word go.. as if they have paid to come and give tribute to the death of laughter.. and experience the horror of Johnny Lever not able to tickle your funny bones.. ditto for Boman, Vir, Vijay Raaz and Sudhir Mishra... what a criminal waste...maintaining silence on the ladies - Neha Dhupia and Lisa Haydon plus other aspects like camera, sound, editing etc, can bring us back to normalcy and we are doing that..

Bollywood is used to objections in titles, content etc in the movie coming from various corners.. movies like SANTA BANTA PVT. LTD can trigger a revolution and provide a solution for such torture in future. A printed warning on its posters like we have in cigarettes and liquor.

Something like this - Watching this movie may be injurious to your pocket, health and belief in laughter.

Rating 1/5
