Unpaid Preview: Humshakals

Disclaimer: Not much of the following is based on truth. Except the Wikipedia facts and the feelings. Ai shapath.


Humshakals is an upcoming movie directed by self-proclaimed comedy genius and Farah Khan look-alike Sajid Khan. The star-cast(LOL) of movie includes Saif Ali Khan, poor man’s Ranbir Kapoor (Riteish Deshmukh) and the Indian version of Andre-the-giant (famous for the ironically titled TV series ‘Bade acche lagte hain‘).

Sajid Khan took a risk by bringing these three actors together, and then he challenged the sanity of the audience by multiplying the equation by three, because not even Sajid Khan himself can be sure about their comic timing.

Ram Kapoor’s previous movie was ‘Mere Dad Ki Maruti‘, and I was disappointed because Ram kapoor did not play the role of the car (Maruti Ertiga) in the movie. Worse, the car was portrayed by Sonakshi Sinha, and I hate the South-west zone(sector 23-26) of her forehead. The last time Saif tried to do comedy was as Boris/Barees in Go Goa Gone, and he left the audience praying for a zombie holocaust. So out of the three actors, it is only Riteish that I can think of spending my money on, but now even his IQ is dropping at the rate of 1.5 Alia Bhatt units per Sajid Khan movie.

Music is by Himesh Reshammiya, but he might have been acting, singing, and doing what-not in Xposé along with this project so I am sure that most of the songs are jinxed. That caller tune song more or less proves my theory. The Wikipedia page for the movie shows its running time as 159 minutes and budget as 55 crore rupees, and expectedly, it scares the Shirish Kunder out of me, because it seems like a scam or a conspiracy theory in itself.

The female cast of the movie comprises of Bipasha, Tamannah and Esha Gupta, or at least their legs and navel as the trailers show, hence making sure that (given there are enough item songs) I will download the movie or at least the videos using torrent.

The summary is… Finally, Akhil Bollywood Sajid  Khan Rozgaar Yojna is back. Previous beneficiaries like Shreyas Talpede and Fardeen Khan are actively writing testimonials for Sajid Khan, though the president of their ‘Retired-but-not-giving-up Actors Association’, Sir Chunkey Pandey, is reportedly unhappy. But I still believe… He’saaJoking!

Hence, No, I will not go to watch this movie in the theater. Shakal se lagta hu, par hu nahi.
