De Taali (2008) - Hindi Movie Review

Ranking: 3/5

Cast: Ritesh Deshmukh, Aftab Shivdasani, Rimii Sen, Ayesha Takia
Director: E. Niwas
Music: Vishal-Shekar


Some movies are funny only if you are in the mood for them, else they are boring and annoying. This movie certainly falls into that category. It can crack you up if you are in a silly mood...

All said and done, Ritesh has good comic timing. His facial expressions and body language just work well with his sense of humor. This movie once again showcases it...Aftab is also not bad in the movie but does come out as someone who has bulked up too much and hence looking a little too chubby. Ayesha on the other hand has always been chubby and is known for her nun-like dress sense...and to create the oomph and sex that is otherwise missing in the movie we have Ms. Sen who is more than ready to compensate for what Ayesha is hiding under he three layered tops and high jeans pants...

This is a very simple story...Amu (Ayesha), Paglu (Ritesh) and Abhi (Aftab) are best friends and spend most of their time together. Abhi keeps falling in and out of love while Paglu and Amu stick around him. Abhi is the rich kids son and he makes sure that his best friends are well kept for. Abhi falls in love with Kartika and starts ignoring his friends thereby ticking both Amu and Paglu off...

Amu has another problem, she is in love with Abhi and only Paglu knows this...so they plan to overthrow Kartika in order to get Amu and Abhi married...They realize during the course of their many plans that Kartika is a gold digger and have to save Abhi from her...The struggle starts...

Do they hold Kartika back? What happens to Abhi? Does he marry Amu? What happens to Paglu?

There are many funny scenes and the movie is a tad too long...like I said before...it is funny if you are up for it...else take an aspirin and go to bed...
