The Shaukeens does show promises but the climax makes it decent entertainer
7 November 2014 | by (India) – See all my reviews

When you are remaking a classic like Basu Bhattcharya's Shaukeen, plenty of comparisons will definitely arise. The question is whether it is on par with the original one ? – Well, It was just about there but neither it did full justice to the original screenplay nor was the acting was even comparable to classic.

Frustrated in life, three lecherous oldies decides to have fun in their vacation with a girl who is a die-hard fan of superstar Akshay Kumar. In order to woo the girl, they must convince Akshay Kumar to help them.

There are two aspects to watch this movie. If you have already seen the classic, you might not be happy with the end product but if you are watching the film for the first time, you might enjoy it. Abhishek Sharma who previously directed the fun-loving Tere Bin Laden misses the bus this time. The movie does have some hilarious moments but only few to keep you alive. The 1st half goes fine. Even the 2nd half shows some promise but the climax plays the spoil sports and messes up completely. The songs are fine. Cinematoraphy is amazing. Art direction is captivating. Background score is just about OK. Coming to performances

  • Annu Kapoor , Anupam Kher and Piyush Sharma does a fine job and they
will tickle your funny bone. Lisa Haydon is just about okay. Akshay Kumar does well in the supporting role.

The Shaukeens does show promises but the climax makes it decent entertainer. Above average 2.75 /5
