Tera Kya Hoga Johnny (2010) *MQ*

Quick! What’s common in Johnny Gaddar, Oye Lucky Lucky Oye, 99, Sankat City? Besides the fact that they all represent the fast growing Indo-Indie genre, they were all heist movies. Each of these movies made good box office gains together with appealing to the mojo of urban film goers. So, the obvious question is, is heist drama the easy bait and the formula for commercial success? If it is, I definitely fell for that bait (again!) with Sudhir Mishra’s Tera Kya Hoga Johnny.

Cast: Neil Nitin Mukesh, Soha Ali Khan, Kay Kay Menon

The film’s main protagonist, Johnny played by Sikander Agarwal is a tea boy on the streets of Mumbai, who dreams of having a better life in Dubai. Johnny’s hopes of making it in life are pinned on the fortunes of three people he admires – Parvez, Preeti and Vishal. Neil plays Parvez, a Muslim from Ahmedabad who wants to get rich quick so that he can fulfil his responsibilities and reclaim his love(Shahana Goswami), who is now married to a corrupt cop, (Kay Kay Menon). Preeti (Soha Ali Khan) is a small time model and Vishal (Karan Nath) is her drug addict boy friend.

So with this many characters in a movie, one might question if Johnny is indeed the protagonist? But, that’s where I was clearly mesmerized walking out of the theater – Johnny was able to sustain my interest, helping me sympathize with these characters, rooting for Johnny mostly and then be agitated about some of the other characters wanting them to fail in their motivations. And oh! did I forget to mention about Anurag Kashyap – he makes a cool cameo as well as Sudhir’s henchman.

All said and done, Sudhir’s Is Raat Ki Subah Nahi and Hazaron Khwahishen Aisi will still remain my top picks followed by Koya Koya Chaand. Johnny is slated to release in India in January and if you are a Sudhir Mishra fan, you will walk away very pleased.
