Kambakht Ishq, What Was The Director Thinking?

I understood the famous saying of German philosopher Schopenhauer, that “a man can do as he wills, but not will as he wills” after I withstood the torture of watching ‘Kambakhht Ishq’. I wanted to see the film and my wish was fulfilled.

From pies in the face to farts, idiotic side kicks to temporary deafness (sets become sex, pressure becomes pleasure) Kambaqt Ishq is slapstick at its worst. A sample of the dialogues of the main protagonists- Kareena calls Akshay a dog; he calls her a bitch. From beginning to end the movie follows a loose storyline where lack of credibility is only one of its flaws. Akshay Kumar and Kareena Kapoor have both proved to be better actors than what this script deserves; Javed Jaffrey and a brief appearance by Boman Irani are completely wasted as comedians and one wonders whether Sylvestor Stallone even read the script before agreeing to do this film.

If you don’t like anybody recommend this film to him.
