Watched this one virtually a month in the past and it was so mediocre I forgot about it! However properly, the PR setup had despatched me screeners of “Lips Don’t Lie,” so there was no selection however to see all 4 episodes of this anthology and now I have to evaluate it as properly!
Probably the most outstanding and fairly insulting side is that every of the episodes are literally named after a Raj Kapoor basic—the Showman, arguably, has but to undergo a worse insult!
Episode 1, titled “Ram Teri Ganga Maili” talks a couple of man looking for assist for his sexual limitations, and to provide a twist, this “Ganga” is certainly “Maili” (soiled)! Episode 2, “Prem Rog,” is nearly bearable ONLY in case you evaluate it with the others, a couple of man in search of somebody as a paying visitor. Then we get a painter desirous to make amends after he betrays his love, and a henpecked husband takes motion.
Each episode smacks of an overdose of intercourse. It doesn’t matter what the story, backdrop or motivations, there’s a swimming pool in every story, and naturally, large homes with French home windows and no employees in any respect to take care of them. Vikram Bhatt et al have no idea what they began!
Logic, in fact, has no place on this silliest of narratives, and the twists are alleged to be wow, however my response as an alternative is ‘How?’—How was this undertaking conceived after which really green-lit by the traders?
A couple of good artistes (Aahana Kumra, Shishir Sharma and even to an extent Tanuj Virwani) are wasted right here and we should marvel if the Raj Kapoor titles impressed them to simply accept this one, or was it disproportionately excessive moolah? Sure, the manufacturing values are good, however the tales are so…sorry, pricey readers, phrases fail me.
