Glam Trip!



Zoya Akhtar 

Hrithik Roshan, Farhan Akhtar, Abhay Deol, Katrina Kaif, Kalki Koechlin

The Plot
Builder Kabir (Abhay), copywriter Imran (Farhan) and stock market hotshot Arjun (Hrithik), the “three musketeers”, make a pact to go on a bachelor trip before one of them gets married. The trio land in Spain, seeking thrills and adventure. And they find Katrina Kaif, Kalki (surprise!), a sexy Spanish chick, Naseeruddin Shah, and a lot of time to look hot.


+2 Because The Third Dil Chahta HaiZNMD being the second, will have actors playing their age. Good progression!

+6 To Hrithik For Playing Arjun, the alphadouche who transforms (powerful scene, bruh!). Another six to Abhay for Kabir, the goofball, without whom all groups are lost.

-5 Because As An Actor, Farhan is like a drunk Mystique (X-Men). Unable to retain the mask consistently. Plus two for having good comic timing, though.

-7 For Using BPL Instead Of GPL. Plus two to Hrithik’s bird, though. Plus three for appropriately screwed up faces after shots.

+4 For The Underwater And In-The-Air Sequences. Take a bow, team. Minus four because in other scenes, Y U NO ZOOM OUT?

+2 For The Acapella Diamond Biscuit jingle and the Doordarshan tune. And another 10 for nailing the group dynamics and camaraderie sequences.

-10 For All (Except A Few) Bad One-On-One Scenes. Felt like The Attack of the Rhonda of The Secret and the Paulo ofThe Alchemist.

+4 For The Tomatina Festival (Read: naked boys.) Four more because the film is porn for girls (Heee!)

+4 Because Watching Katrina on screen has never been this good. Plus three for Katsploitation on the Royal Enfield.

+8 For “Chudail Alert!” and for other such charmingly boyish lines. Minus six for all the ‘main aur meri gehrayi’ voiceovers.

+2 For The Harold Faltermeyer Version of Saare jahaan se acchha. Minus four for the came-out-of-nowhere senorita song.

-10 Because (Without Complaining About Hotness Quotient) Baby, you got the gender wrong. Now make the same film with Katrina, Anushka Sharma, Priyanka Chopra instead.
