Happy New Year

Here’s the thing, director Farah Khan. I get that not all movies are meant to adhere to logic. And I get that spoofs aren’t meant to be made fun of. But I also know that you don’t get to use those lines when a large chunk of your three-hour(!) film is all melodrama and no spoof.  If I’m expected to take a lot of it seriously, I’m taking all of it seriously! Maybe it’s not fair of me but, in my defense, how fair is it that you made us sit through THREE hours(!!) of SRK (Gang leader Charlie), Deepika (Legs wali Mohini), and those other guys (Abhishek Bachchan, Sonu Sood, Boman Irani & a guy who is probably being disowned by Naseeruddin & Ratna Pathak Shah right now) trying to execute possibly the worst heist to be put on screen since ‘Players’?
