No Problem (2010) - Bollywood

Movie: No Problem
Genre: Comedy
Director: Anees Bazmi
Cast: Anil Kapoor, Sanjay Dutt, Akshay Khanna, Paresh Rawal, Sushmita Sen, Shakti Kapoor, Sunil Shetty
Rating: 4/5

If one thought that Golmaal 3 was the epitome of laughter and could not be surpassed then No Problem has proven him wrong. The film is a laughter bomb. The roars in the cinema are deafening and the tears that run down one's cheeks as a result of uncontrollable giggles are a testament to the movie's comic greatness.
Given the cast of the film the expectations were sky high. Anil Kapoor, Sanjay Dutt, Paresh Rawal, Akshay Khanna, Sunil Shetty and Sushmita Sen provide a heavy star cast. When one steps into the theater he is already expecting an entertainment bonanza, but No Problem takes the fun factor to a all new level. To be released so close to a Golmaal 3 and yet be so funny is an achievement in its own right.
The story is tried and tested in films like Aik aur Aik Gyaara where a couple of crooks get into a bigger mess than they can handle. The punches however are amazingly crafted and make the audience cramp in the tummy. The situational comedy is extremely well put and the use of words is exceptional. The dialogs are spontaneous and generic and give the film a repeat value in that you can watch it over and over again and still laugh each time - much like the Govinda starrers of the past.
As for the cast, my favorites were Sushmita Sen, Paresh Rawal and Anil Kapoor. Sushmita's character is very well conceived and even better portrayed. Paresh as usual amazes with his comic timing and body language. I agree with Salman Khan though that Sanjay's role is perhaps the best after Munna Bhai and he has done great justice to it. Then there is Anil Kapoor who lightens up the screen in every shot with extreme energy and fervor. No one can believe that this same guy has a daughter in her mid twenties. Akshay Khanna has again given an honest performance and complements the stalwarts. Kangana Ranaut looked cheap and out of place but perhaps that was what the role demanded and Nitu Chandra was hot and sexy! All in all a job well done. I would not say much about the cast because I don't intend to be a spoiler - so go get a ticket!

The music however, was ordinary to say the least and so apart from "Shakira to wi zyada" no song has any potential. Even "shakira" has just one catchy punchline and nothing more. So I wont say much about the music because I really wanna give no problem a 10/10!

No Problem has the quality of being a legendary film. The movie has the potential to be remembered as one of the funniest indian movies of all time!
