Nanhe Jaisalmer Movie Review
Nanhe (Yadav) is a precocious ten-year-old who is lives in Rajasthan and is the sole bread-winner for his family. He is also die-hard fan of super star (!) Bobby Deol and has his sister write to the actor everyday. One day he comes face to face with his idol in the desert and the incident predictably changes his life.
The story is simple enough without the necessary trappings of a commercial pot boiler. But though Samir Karnik has come a long way from the disaster that he had named Kyun… hogaya na, he still not managed to stop boring his audience. You often have to prod yourself to stay awake through the movie. Luckily you get help from the child artist Dwij Yadav, who has done a brilliant job. But with a story line that has one of the most badly written climax, the poor thing can’t do much to salvage the mess.To add to the agony, Himesh Reshammiya has come up with the most insipid tunes of his career. Me thinks the producers did not pay him enough and this was his way of getting back at them.
But the worst mistake of the lot is Bobby Deol.
While the punjab da puttar does not seem to have complains about his role because this is the closest he can come to super stardom, we have a lot to say about the choice and nothing terribly complimentary.
Nanhe Jaisalmer does have some really well executed sequences and stunning cinematography.
You just need to stay awake for all that regalia!
