What happens when egos clash? When success gets into an individual’s head?
When someone stoops to any extent to hold on to what he cherishes the most in life?
The answer — pain, misery and wrecked lives.
Cast: Bobby Deol, Upen Patel, Celina Jaitely, Kangana Ranaut
Inspired from Milos Forman’s masterpiece AMADEUS, SHAKALAKA BOOM BOOM is a timepass eyecandy and musical drama from social movie maker Sunil Darshan. Like Madhur Bhandarkar brought the murky side of the corporate world before the audience, Darshan has chosen to focus on the music industry. Though, many circumstantial sequences were borrowed from ongoing rivalry between actors SRK & Big B.
Bobby Deol is AJ, reigning rock star who just can’t handle competition. And when it comes in the form of Reggie (Upen Patel), the new age composer who has a natural talent for music, our curly-locked hero gets all green with envy. He forgets his own music and pledges himself to just one mission: Operation Reggie ka destruction.
Almost like an overgrown kid, he stamps his feet, hollers and screams and even sets his home on fire. And when that doesn’t work, he tries to transform his rival into some kind of a devdas, hoping hell simply drink himself to death.
Darshan’s directional venture is well-complimented by Himesh Reshammiya’s music. No wonder how much his critics slam his music to be too repetitive and run-of-the-mill, the topi-wallah just keeps creating foot-tapping numbers. Even if Shakalaka Boom Boom fails to set the cash registers ringing, the producers won’t be disappointed. The music of the film will definitely keep the movie afloat.
