Go Goa Gone Movie Review


Ratings:3/5  Review By:  Rajeev Masand  Site:CNN IBN ( IBNLive)
The film, starring Kunal Khemu, Vir Das, and Anand Tiwari as three best friends stranded on an island infested with flesh-eating zombies, works like magic when directors Krishna DK and Raj Nidimoru focus on their three leads and the irreverent banter between them. But, working off a slim plot, the filmmakers don't really know where to take the story after a point, and end up turning the film's entire second half into a lazy cat-and-mouse chase between man and monster.I'm going with three out of five for Go Goa Gone. So much in this film is good, until it all goes nowhere in the end.

GO GOA GONE comes across more as an adventure flick than a conventional horror film. Sure, it has its share of violence and gore, besides some cuss words, rave party et al, but the fun quotient is smartly integrated in the screenplay and what comes across is crazy, madcap amusement. Raj and DK are enthused by Hollywood movies and there's no denying that GO GOA GONE is a film with Hollywood sensibilities. But the best part is that the film never gets dark or depressing. The wit and humor, generously interwoven in the narrative, keeps you smiling all through, despite the blood and gore. On the whole, GO GOA GONE is experimental since something like this has never been attempted earlier. But it's fun, witty, amusing and yes, thoroughly entertaining. The youngistaan is sure to love this mad, mad, mad ride!

Writer-directors Raj Nidimoru and Krishna D.K. deliver what their zany promos promised but only for half the film. Post interval, the film does a zombie on us – it becomes dead, lumbering and tedious. I think the trouble with Go Goa Gone is too much cleverness and not enough plot. I’m going with two and a half stars. Post interval, even the fabulous Boris, a tattooed, blonde Russian rockstar from Delhi, starts to feel limp.

Go Goa Gone will, hopefully, encourage filmmakers to explore new genres, let go of legacy concepts, and inject some energy into the lackluster, zombified rut of films we seem to be stuck with. For now, takes heart as our survivors use everything from an umbrella to a rocket launcher to take out the walking dead and keep you rolling over with laughter.

Go Goa Gone is positively different from anything you seen before. And for the young and restless(tattooed, ring-pierced, rave-party enthusiasts) or even those who like whacked-out fun, it's a great ride. With easy performances from Kunal, Saif, Vir and Anand and the crackerjack dialogue, the film will keep you in splits for the most part. What is a little tiring though,is the pace of the zombies, who are a bit too monotonous.  However some of the situations in GGG are repititive. Hence, the laughs that were coming spontaneously till a point become a bit forced at some juncture.

On the whole, Go Goa Gone has the novelty factor going in its favour but it lacks universal appeal. It entertains upto a point but becomes repetitive thereafter. It can hope to do well only in the big cities and the premium multiplexes but that may not be enough to recover costs. Its business in smaller cities and towns will be below the mark.

Half the time I was lost in his prepubescent Convent-school accent, and the other half getting annoyed at the wooden expression. Really, its not called understated. It's just called dumb. Having said all that, Go Goa Gone is a fun watch. There are plenty of innocent-sounding, slow-exploding one-liners, which are funny.Please go watch this movie sans-kids, and you are in for some genuine giggles. And of course, there is a promise-like for a sequel.

First the film’s strengths. Go Goa Gone is full of surprises: it is as if Delhi Belly on acid has strayed into Zombieland. It is anything but a mindless zombie film. It is visceral yet humorous; over the top yet perfectly controlled. Go Goa Gone is only mildly scary, but it is often very, very funny. What works is its refusal to pull back and away from its chosen course. It goes all the way down the path to the bitter end, even at the risk of turning far too jokey to be effective. Pretty much the same could be said of the film as a whole – it’s crazy but cool. It gives you what you least expect and in ways that you least anticipate. That is a rare attribute for a Hindi film. I am going with three stars for Go Goa Gone.

Ratings:2.5/5  Review By:  Shubhra Gupta  Site:Indian Express
The film would have been funnier if the second act hadn't gone into a slide. And also if Khan hadn't played Boris (pronounced, he says with a straight face, Ba-ris) so straight. His slip-in-the-bad-Hindi-cussword is played for a laugh: you know that and you still crack up. Sending up his Russian mobster a little more would have shored up the comic tone of the film. It's left to the three guys to do the job. Good to see Kunal Khemu back in form; Das and Tiwari also have a couple of good moments.There's also a neat little twist at the end. So don't rush out of the theatres.

Directed by Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK, both known for their comedies, this ‘zom-com’, as the film has been promoted, is also a comedy – with generous dollops of bloody-gory-hungry zombies. Go Goa Gone’ is a pleasant watch, and despite the innumerable scenes depicting flesh and gore, doesn’t leave one with an urge to vomit. The dialogues are witty and are mostly responsible for invoking a laugh. Sense, logic and sensibility be damned – go ‘keel dead peepal’!

Ratings:3.5/5  Review By:  Tushar Joshi  Site:DNA
There is ample blood, gore, stabbing, shooting, brains being blown up, arms amputated, to make you squirm if you aren’t familiar with the genre. But all of this is presented in a fun, satirical format that never takes itself too seriously. Only if the second half and especially the climax had been better fleshed out, the film would have been exceptional. Right in the middle, you get that feeling in your gut, “how will they wrap up this freak show?”, and it isn’t an easy task giving all that madness some method. Go Goa Gone is a drug that takes you on that high, but wears off soon enough before you start tripping.

What’s Good: The film’s smart paced rhythm and sleek performances that have you rolling with laughter. What’s Bad: The last 20 minutes of the film gets repetitive and drags on failing to evoke the maddening laughter it manages to sustain all through. Watch or Not?: Packed with rude humor, building on a novel Hollywood concept, the film is a must watch for its perfect concoction of hilarity and horror. Doing justice to the idea of Zom-Com that they introduced, it is the naughty, spoofy and the uninhibited performances of Kunal Khemu and Vir Das that keeps intact the film’s frenzy all through

  6. If you have seen ZOMBIELAND or SHAUN OF THE DEAD, you must know what does the genre ZOM-COM stand for? But if you haven’t and are only restricted to Bollywood Cinema, Raj & DK’s GO GOA GONE is your guide to the world of Zombies on screen. Though, against the Hollywood movies I mentioned above, it looks a little premature & uninventive ground level effort to introduce a completely new genus in Indian cinema but it’s seriously good & impressive.

    3 friends forever bored/thrown/bashed up/beaten up emotionally, professionally & in personal life decide to find the lost pulse & pleasure of getting high on drugs, drinks & girls in Goa- the host to fluorescently lited trippy-trancy-smoky rave parties…but soon after the phase of addiction is faded down, they are enforced to encounter their not-so-familiar horror of lifetime Zombies all over the place. And then begins the roller-coaster journey of survival filled with witty dialogues, absurdly funny one-liners and creepy humour with sheer non-nonsensical comic portions.

    Yes, you heard it right! GO GOA GONE’s merit lies in its honest approach that never promises to be serious for once in the whole 119 mins of duration, so you may find some not so hilarious moments and some repetitive sequences too but it does not fall short of bringing a constant smile on your face and a lot of loud laughs in second part specially…that too, without losing the thrills as what will come next. Kunal makes a mark with his sharp comic timing, Vir is regular, Anand Tiwari is efficient and Saif is competent.

    All the praises to Raj & DK for opening a new territory in Indian film industry. We have got our first Zombie film and it is bloody good. ENGAGING-IMPRESSIVE-FUNNY [3/5]!

  11. It is Witty, Humorous and Fun.. Disable-Your-Brain-N-Enjoy-This-Madness movie..

    Great one liners and timing, Great performances by Trio friends Kunal, Vir and Tiwari, especially Kunal.. But I wish someone else did Saif's job and he just did his Production works..

    In second half it fell a little flat but it can be neglected easily, but no dull moment anywhere in this two hours madcap..

    Raj & DK returned with a bang and succeed to keep up their humor and honor or previous flicks 99 and Shot in the City..

    I rate it 3.5/5 and recommend u to watch it keeping your brains off..

    Must watch for those who loved ZomComs like Shaun of the Dead, Zombieland or recent Warm Bodies..

    PS: Strictly and definitely not for the Masses..

    Waiting for THE END ( Those who watched movie will understand :P )..

  26. "Movie Review" By- "MovieMaster" !!!!!

    "GO GOA GONE" IS STRICTLY A TIME PASS MOVIE, ESPECIALLY FOR MODERN YOUTHS !!!!!

    Fully loaded with "F" words, witty dialogues, one liners, naughty adult expressions and intentions; one thing the director duo makes clear from the beginning itself that this mad zom-com is made for Youths! They have infact succeeded in their attempt to some extent too but overall the movie doesn't rise much above an average time pass flick !!!

    The story is wafer thin and is about three friends going for a rave party on an island and then their attempt to get out of it as they find themselves trapped in between Zoombies! The first half is a bit better than the second! Infact it appears that except introducing the alien zoombie concept to the Bollywood, the directors haven't worked much on it ! Like the lead actors, the plot seems lost in second half! The Witty dialogues and one liners do work ! The integrated anti drug message is a nice thought!

    Among the actors, "Kunal Khemu" really stands out, Saif is good but it appears that he has given only a half hearted effort and a better portrayal of the character was expected from him! Rest all actors are just fit in their roles!

    The direction is not upto the mark, a better one could have lifted the movie to another level! Camera work is good ! Music is passable, only the song "Slowly Slowly" stands out! Overall you can enjoy this mad zom-com but the word of caution is that don't expect much and DO LEAVE YOUR BRAINS AT HOME !!!!!

    RATING- 2.75/5 .

  27. GO GOA GONE
    MNR’S VIEW

    “Karma is bitch my friend”… Go goa gone is the movie for them… In fact we all have loved zom-com ‘s like zombie land and Shaun of the dead…GGG introduces zombie’s to bollywood with lot of blood shattered all over… Zombies doesn’t have sense… so you would be a zombie if you think go goa gone is senseless…Oh god , now a days I get lot over senseless movie which makes your each penny has it’s sense

    Here comes the three bonded friends Hardick (kunal), luv and Bunny who had got totally fu.***ed up by current stress , As we seen like in all our youth movies they Rush goa for the sake of a break… ON a night party arranged by Russian mafia (so called) , Some of party people get over some hard drugs which make’s their brain dead .Soon they become zombie’s…Now what left is our break up guy’s and a girl named Luna where our luv has a affection on her…Then come our Bounty hunter Boris for helping this gandu’s out of mess

    GGG has all the ingredient’s which makes it a interesting zombie movie…But , what makes it different apart is How it is treated in our desi style throughout crazy cracker’s…. GGG ensures frequent smile with it’s terror….Raj and Dk know’s well that the just a concept called zombie can’t make audience attracted to it….They brings a little more soul to movie than usual zombie type But it never get cross the mark….It have bollywood style dosthi and romance, character are same chalu,s that you get from your popcorn movies… Sachin-jigar’s music is entertaining especially track’s like slowly slowly and koon choosle….

    On performance, Saif was rocking through all those rocking look’s…What makes him more special is that rhythm that he had got in saying his dialogues…..”I keel dead people”….Kunal as hardick is my favorite among trio….He was entertaining throughout and makemake it impressible…vir das as Luv make’s it crack you out of seat at part’s for his comic act…anand tiwari -Bunny iis a guy who had any kind of ethic’s remains’ in them and make way for few smiles..in fact trio make’s lot tickles here and thre with it’s odd combination

    On its drawbacks you could get all the plot after just watching trailer itself…It just don’t take any risk apart from presenting same kind of following as Hollywood movies of same genre had bought you… It makes you remember of zombie land and some b-grade zombie movies here and there…Direction get sloppy at the end ,But still ensures entertainment and call’s for quite impressible climax

    Go Goa Gone will, hopefully, encourage filmmakers to explore new genres, let go of legacy concepts, and inject some energy into the lackluster, zombified rut of films we seem to be stuck with.Surely the zombey chase and those attacks were luv and hardick use all those stuff’s to beat them is mash up of fun and all those scenes which is treated geniusly which kame’s you rol on floor and laugh at it heaven louder.The russian fantic boris-saif will entertain you with some entertaining gora red figh’s and gaalis….Expect some repetition here and there GGG woul impress youngisthan for a long time

    Got bored of panda’s and Rathode’s…Have a try… It’s worth watching because it has something fresh which delivers some rotten bodies eating all those blood and meat which makes you feel throw way your pop-corn… It won’t be the best Zombie movie you have seen till..But it ensures entertainment as It’s desi heroes smash up the head’s….It has it’s freshness for it’s concept ….I would recommend you to leave your brain to zombies and have some fun…It won’t hurt you much and won’t make you a zombie for wasting your money

    MY rating 3/5
    GOOD

    leave your brain to zombies and have some fun…It won’t hurt you much and won’t make you a zombie for wasting your money

  28. Zombies in Bollywood! Yes, you guessed it right. This Friday, with ‘Go Goa Gone’ you have a new concept hitting the theatres. This is India’s first Zom-Com by the duo director Raj and DK.

    Two friends- Hardik (Kunal Khemu) and Luv (Vir Das) frustrated with their professional and personal lives plan to go Goa with their best buddy Bunny (Anand Tiwari). There they meet Luna (Puja Gupta) who invites them to a rave party on some nearby island. The party was organized by Russian Mafia, Boris (Saif Ali Khan) to launch a new drug. The drug gets most of the people insane and turns them to a Zombie. Now, three of them along with Puja Gupta are stuck on the island full of zombies. Finally, they meet Boris who comes to rescue them from the unwanted creatures.


    Go Goa Gone has a fresh new concept of Zombies. Yes, the director duo manages to give a real touch to these creatures. Moreover, the film is entertaining. It takes you on an adventurous ride. The one-liners especially are worth of a laugh. The comic timing of Kunal and Vir is great.

    Though, the problem here is the content. In most of the parts you see the actors trying to escape the zombies which make the climax very predictable.

    Kunal Khemu is my pick for this week, definitely better than the others. Vir Das supports him well but this is certainly not the best of him. Anand Tiwari is good. Saif Ali Khan entertains. Puja Gupta has not much to do.

    In a nutshell, Go Goa Gone guarantees you entertainment for sure. Go this one with your college buddies and have a good time.

    Rating- 2.5/5

  31. It has done justice with its concept.
    I loved how it is presented, it may be so not spooky or scary at all, and it really has no sense, but its a pure entertainment, if we don't demand logic.I cracked up when Vir was told to try out his own idea and he did!OMG...lol..
    He behaved liked a zombie and dead peepal(lolzz) were on their way to have their dinner when their dinner was actually amongst them.ROFL. And suddenly he recognized one of them and behaved normal and then what??? He just sped away from there and the zombies couldn't get a hold of him...ROFL
    this film was totally insensible, but it made my laugh like hell, so maybe we should give it a chance! :)
