Fryday Movie Review: Old Jokes Never Save This Film
Fryday Movie Review: Govinda has managed to come back to his old genre and featuring with him is Varun Sharma of Fukrey fame.
There was something in every Govinda's film which most of us have relished and enjoyed during our childhood. Be it the unique dancing styles or the kickass punchlines which ruled back in those days. The films were quite good back in those days, but sadly those films are like the infamous age-old recipes fed for generations which is giving the family diarrhoea. Fryday falls in that category.
The film revolves around a salesman Rajiv (Varun Sharma) of a water purifier company, who is frustrated with his luck which involves his sleazy boss and his foul-mouthed colleague. One fine day he gets a client in the form of Gagan Kumar (Govinda) who is particularly infamous for overacting his lines while playing Salim in the play form of the cult romantic tale Mughal-E-Azam. One fine day, Rajiv heads to Gagan's home who is having a ball when his wife is gone for a business trip in Shimla and he is seen philandering with a young woman (Digangana Suryavanshi).
Things go upside down when Rajiv comes at his doorstep and the chaos ensues when more uninvited guests barge in the house which becomes completely over-the-top.
Govinda and Varun Sharma is one such couple someone has actually thought of and the worst part is the direction by Abhishek Dogra who has used same Govinda's 90s elements in this, which has nothing new to offer. Varun Sharma uses his old Fukrey's antics which seems repetitive even now, especially recreating iconic Deewar sequence.
Don't waste your time in this one, it will give you nightmares if you are planning to watch it.
