Bombay To Bangkok (2008)

After the huge success of films like Dor and Iqbal, a Nagesh Kukunoor film starring Nagesh’s chela -Shreyas Tadpade comes your way.In the season of brainless comedies, Nagesh Kukunoor’s rom-com ‘Bombay To Bangkok’ strives to be different.And it is indeed different to the extent that you will scowl at the “funny” scenes, and laugh at those meant to be serious.Expectations for this flick too are running high.So here’s how the plot goes.

Shankar (Shreyas Tadpade), a Mumbai cook, in desperate need of money steals from the local Don (Naseerudin Shah).Giving the Don’s cronies the slip he escapes impersonating a doctor with a team heading for relief work in Thailand.His plan though goes awry as he loses all the important money bag in the ensuing chaos.In Bangkok his search for the missing loot is derailed when he bumps into a lovely massage girl Jasmine (Lena Christensen) and is instantly smitten!

The hitch is she speaks only Thai and he can’t converse with her at all.A ray of hope comes his way the next day when Jasmine turns up desperately in need of a doctor!Shankar along with his Thai-Sardar buddy Rachwinder (Manmeet Singh), jump to the rescue and unwittingly pull Jasmine into his road-trip searching for the money bag.Hot on their trail are the vengeful don’s rapper son Jam K (Vijay Maurya) and his henchmen who have landed in Bangkok to retrieve their money.

To begin with looks like Nagesh Kukunoor has got it completely wrong this time.His so called comedy of errors looks more like a script full of errors.Kukunoor experiments with a road trip that takes you from the streets of Bombay to Bangkok and in the process leaves the viewers no where.It’s the weak story telling that kills the film.The plot is obvious, all the gags and comedy situations have been seen before (more than once) and it drags on too long.The film definitely needs some trimming as it just prolongs to be called a 2 hour flick.
