a lot of breaking bones for stealing stones ends with a complete knockout comedy
A rehash of Hollywood hit Snatch, Fool & Final is comedy entertainer in bits, but there is a hitch.
Some rules you need to follow before you embark on a journey called FOOL & FINALâ€¦
One, don’t wear your thinking caps. Here’s why: The film defies logic.
Two, don’t ask questions. Here’s why: It’s all about entertainment, not enlightenment.
Three, don’t look for answers. Here’s why: The motive is to keep you in splits.
Cast: Shahid Kapur (Raja), Ayesha Takia (Tina), Gulshan Grover ( Choksey), Paresh Rawal ( Choubey), Arbaaz Khan (Moscow Chikna), Vivek Oberoi (Luckee), Sunny Deol (Munna), Zakir Hussain (JD), Asrani (Lalvani)
FOOL & FINAL is meant to be a laughathon, but it excites in bits and spurts. The first half offers rich visuals and a few interesting gags, but the entertainment quotient isn’t high enough. It’s only when Johny Lever enters the frame that things intensify. The sequence in the car, with Ayesha’s dog swallowing the mobile, is hilarious and every time Paresh and Johny interact with one another, the smile on your face only widens.
A daring diamond heist forms centre stage for this hilarious comic caper as the loot in question is smuggled from India to Dubai.
The local crime syndicate in Dubai wants the loot for themselves. Arbaaz Khan, a don based in Dubai, gets to know of the diamond and also of Chunkey’s weaknesses — guns and gambling. Arbaaz asks Paresh Rawal to get on to the job. Paresh plans to carry out the robbery with his niece [Ayesha Takia], her boyfriend [Shahid Kapoor] and a cabbie [Johny Lever].
Viek Oberoi owes money to a don [Zakir Hussain], who conducts illegal boxing matches in Dubai. Meanwhile, Chunkey cannot resist the urge for guns and calls Arbaaz, who in turn asks Chunkey for a favor: Chunkey should bet on his behalf at Zakir’s illegal den. On Arbaaz’s instructions, Paresh, Shahid, Ayesha and Johny decide to kidnap Chunkey.
Sunny Deol has an altercation with Vivek’s fighter. Zakir asks Vivek to bring Sunny for the big fight. Sunny knocks down Zakir’s fighter. Zakir is seething with anger. In the meanwhile, Arbaaz walks away with the diamond. Subsequently, Zakir walks in and demands the diamond from Paresh and gang. Gulshan and Asrani also land up at Paresh’s place with Jackie Shroff and ask for the diamond.
