Kurbaan (2009)

If you shoot a majority of a movie in the US, have a large production budget, why do you shoot in India for a really small office sequence?

I don’t know.

If you have seen Fanaa (2006) or New York (2009) there is really no need for you to see Kurbaan. There is no need for you to see Fanaa, or New York in the first place.

I won’t waste blogspace trying to tell you about the acting. Where Om Puri starts acting like the rest of the cast, there isn’t any point mentioning how people have acted in the movie. Kirron Kher completely disappoints with her over-Afghanified accent, which you can just about tolerate, however, Vivek Oberoi should strike out “can do American accent” from his resume.

There is nothing worthwhile about the direction, it is plain and staid. The worst of all is the story. Sorry, my mistake – the story is not bad – it just doesn’t exist!

Predictable right from the word go, Kurbaan is an absolute waste of the money spent in making this film. I feel really sad, I added to the waste.

    ROTFL! After the first sentence, I paused, and read my thoughts in the second 🙂

    Not that I needed your review to ‘not watch’ this movie. But I was expecting you to tear it ear to ear, limb to limb. But then if it doesn’t have limbs, what can you do.

    Well, now that you’ve atoned, you should forgive yourself 😀

    cheers,

    • I really wanted to write a “real” review – that is how much it hurt. I asked myself, however — why, why would you *further* waste your time. Just save others and get on with your life. Bad things happen to people.

    • Oh! So them being cruel on the entire population is fine? Tumhara khoon, khoon, mera khoon paani?

      They should have just released the songs – which are just about below average!
