Hari Puttar Bollywood Movie Review

A old and rugged tale, the story begins with Hari Prasad (Zain Khan) who moves to the UK from India as her father Prof Dhoonda comes on a government assignment. He is working on a top secret project related to the defence forces and he is in his own world. In this process, arrives Hari's aunt (Lillette Dubey) along with her kids, uncle DK (Jackie Shroff) and even the kids of DK's boss. Hari's life takes a turn when the kids create havoc and he is literally sidelined in this whole chaos. However, his doting mother (Sarika) is around to help him at all times. Meanwhile, the entire lot plans for a vacation and in the confusion, they leave for their holiday spot leaving behind Hari and his cousin Tuk Tuk (Swini) at home. Meanwhile, the villain sends two of his best men Diesel (Saurabh Shukla) and Filter (Vijay Raaz) to extract the chip that Hari's father has kept hidden in the house. What follows is a tale of attempts and counter attempts and a rollicking ride. All this forms the rest of the story.

Hari Puttar Hindi Cinema Review

The director has come up with a regular plot but then the presentation and narration both failed to live upto the mark. The script was written shoddily and the screenplay was executed with amateur hand. Editing was numb and the music did not have any major appeal, the cinematography looked alright given the locations in the foreign soil. The other departments need no mention here. Zain Khan has come out with a good performance and has proved his mettle while the talented Swini did not get much to perform here. Jackie was grossly underutilized, Sarika was mechanical, Lilette was okay, Saurabh and Vijay made a mockery of themselves.

Hari Puttar Filem Review

The film happens to be a straight lift from the Hollywood blockbuster 'Home Alone' and has been Indianized in its own way.  However, it could not match the brilliance of the script in the original. While the first half was the usual ruckus of loads of kids and other things, the second half is about the silly ventures of the baddies and the attempts to thwart them off. Commercially there is nothing for the audience and kids might not relish it as expected due to the poor execution.
