There's a song, three scenes; a song three scenes; another song and three more scenes... This is ZILA GHAZIABAD for you.

Anand Kumar has directed this balderdash of a movie.

There's a Chairman, a Fauji and a Masterji. Chairman (Paresh Rawal) is a figurehead who rules the roost in Ghaziabad along with his goons. Fauji (Arshad Warsi) is no soldier in the army. He is a thug working for Chairman. Masterji (Vivek Oberoi) is one of those educated in Ghaziabad who wants to spread the power of education. Soon, however, instead of kind words, he uses guns to settle disputes.

CHECK OUT: Sanjay Dutt promised ZILA GHAZIABAD action director five more films

Then, there's also an inspector who wades through goons just on the power of his fists. He is Pritam Singh Chauhan (Sanjay Dutt). 'Deadly' was once associated with his surname. I guess it could now be 'Badly'!

To top it there are two item songs and both disappoint. About the content of the lyrics, you will have to read my column on Wednesday. How the censor is passing lines like these is still an enigma to me.

Amongst all this 'super crap' so-called action scenes you are treated to 'super sub-standard' acting from each and every actor on view. Everyone is out on a picnic having a ball as soon as the director calls ''action''. Even Ashutosh Rana appears somewhere in between to complete this mad fest.

But the dialogue of the movie is mouthed by Zarina Wahab in the end. ''Beta, us rakshash ko aisa maut marna ki upar wala bhi aisa rakshash paida karne ke pehle do baar soche,'' she tells her son Masterji.

CHECK OUT: I was thinking of Sonu Sood for Sanjay Dutt's role, says Anand

Now, Mr. Writer of this dialogue, don't you know that God does not create monsters but He has given us all a free will and it is us humans who decide which path to take. There is a good path and a bad path and we decide which to walk on. He is such a Gentleman that He will never influence our free will, unless we ask Him for guidance.

So this is ZILA GHAZIABAD. If you want to see it, do carry a strip of aspirin along. Hang on a minute, to be fair to Fauji; it is only Warsi who looks convincing in his acting.
