Knock Out

I’m pretty sure most of you must’ve heard random chatter about how Mani Shankar’s ‘Knock Out’ bears resemblance to a certain Colin Farrell starrer by the name of ‘Phone Booth’. Well, don’t believe a word of it! Because while ‘Phone Booth’ is slick, and tense, and awesome, ‘Knock Out’ is a steaming pile of bullcrap. Although, what ‘Knock Out’ lacks in awesome, it makes up in sheer WTF-ery. Sample lines such as, “Heart hamara left main hota hai, magar hamesha right hota hai”, said with such deadpan seriousness that it breaks my heart, because it’ll never translate in comic form. There’s more than enough bits that I think do, though.
