Woodstock Villa (2008) - Hindi Movie Review

Ranking: 3/5

Cast: Sikhander Kher, Arbaaz Khan, Neha Uberoi
Director: Hansal Mehta
Music: Annu Mallik


First off, the music is so insignificant in this movie that I am not even going to make any mention of it other than this line...there! Done...

I should probably say the same about the direction too...and the acting...hummm...probably a few lines...what the hell!

Sikander Kher better be good in acting like his dad or his overacting mom else he is gonna see the way out soon with god having bestowed him with not-so-favorable-in-bollywood looks...On the other hand Ms. Uberois need to do something about her acne...oodles of make up did not help hide them...poor girl...but what about her acting skills? Haven't you noticed? I am trying to spare her the humiliation...

A rich man's wife (Uberoi) gets kidnapped...the players are the wife and a man the wife befriends (Kher) at a bar...the police think that the rich man (Khan) is the suspect and keep giving cheap dialogues to him...anyways Kher sees that Khan has a couple of cops with him and calls and lets him know that his wife is gone from this world forever...Kher goes back to inform Uberoi that her husband had the cops with him only to see that she is dead herself...

Now Kher is in trouble for murder and kidnap...fear grips him while he realizes that he has been conned. A phone call tells him to dispose the body in half hour or he will be in trouble...

What happens to Kher's future? What happens to Khan and his dead or not wife forms the rest of the movie. The story is actually half decent...reminds you of movies like Jhonny Gaddar...but the direction fails miserably...probably the cast might have done better at acting...after all the director is the puppet master...but well...too bad for these guys...

It is a definite one time watch...but nothing more than that...dont pine too much hopes...it is an average movie...in fact a wannabe cool movie!
