Humshakal Hindi Movie Reviews


Ratings:0.5/5 Review By: Rajeev Masand Site:CNN IBN
This singularly unfunny film plumbs the depths of comedic bankruptcy by a director who quite frankly, hasn't delivered anything funny in a long time. That bit of self-deprecatory humor aside, this is essentially a tasteless, overblown affair that plods on for 159 brain-numbing minutes. I'm going with half out of five, yes just half out of five, for Sajid Khan's 'Humshakals'. I've never had one, but I imagine a ruptured appendix would hurt less.

While HUMSHAKALS begins on a promising note -- it's a premise ripe with comic potential -- the graph only spirals southwards barely fifteen minutes into the film. It's not sacrilege to attempt a no-brainer -- the audience loves it -- but the smiles/guffaw/laughter should never be in short supply. With a run time of approx. 2.30 hours, HUMSHAKALS drains you at the end of it, despite the actors putting their best foot forward and trying so so so hard to make you giggle even when the gags are weak. The banal jokes and the lame PJs coupled with the muddled screenplay are clearly responsible for the royal mess.On the whole, HUMSHAKALS tries too hard to make you laugh, but fails miserably.

With its multi-story story, Humshakals must be tightly told. Here, the film wobbles, its first half distractedly meandering with mindless sequences involving comas, electric shocks and Satish Shah as a Hitler-worshipping warden, tormenting patients by showing them Himmatwala. The second half gets tauter and funnier. The result's like a minty chewing gum that's been stretched too long. Shedding 30 minutes and some jaded gags would make Humshakals consistent fun - now, you laugh but also frequently go, ho-hum.

This is a racist, s**ist, equal-opportunity offender of a film, which wouldn’t have been awful in itself were it not also patently unfunny. Seriously, if you run into anyone who claims to have enjoyed this film, step away slowly. The biggest casualty from this monstrous effort is, in my eyes, Saif Ali Khan, who may well be disowned by friends and family. It’s all bad. All of it, every last instant, every single word,

Sajid Khan’s story is too farcical to be digested by the audience. Since the film is a comedy, the viewers would’ve overlooked logic but because the story is implausible and farcical, the absence of logic becomes difficult for them to accept at many places. All in all, the arrogance of the script gets on the audience’s nerves. On the whole, Humshakals is funny only in parts and boring, by and large. Too farcical and repetitive and resting on an implausible premise, it will fail to make its mark at the box-office.

So you thought Sajid Himmatwala Khan could sink no further. Watch just 15 minutes of Humshakals and you'd be disavowed of that notion. Even by the pitiable cinematic standards that the director has so defiantly set for himself, Humshakals is the very pits. It scrapes the bottom of a barrel that seems to have no bottom at all. Humshakals is an execrable comedy of horrors that plumbs the depths of stupidity and crassness. If there is any purpose that this load of unalloyed trash serves, it is simply this: the film proves how delusional Sajid Khan is. He thinks this is cinema. Sorry, Mr. Khan, no matter how much money your film ends up with at the box office, the joke is entirely on you!

This one is way beyond. Idiocy is a gentle term for what is unleashed upon us. You can also call it a two-and-a- half hour show reel of plot-less, witless, joylessness. I am all for political incorrectness. Silliness can be great fun. But brainless doesn’t have to translate to brain-dead, when it is done with smarts. ‘Humshakals’ has zero. Even in his really terrible moments, Sajid has managed to come up with one laugh out loud moment. Or two. Here there are none.

Humshakals' central problem isn't the lack of realism, but that it isn't funny. If you're thinking of watching Humshakals, here's a suggestion. Don't do it. There are better things you can do with your money and being swallowed alive by a python is less excruciating than watching Sajid Khan's latest attempt at making a movie.

Ratings:1.5/5 Review By: Mohar Basu Site: Koimoi
If Himmatwala was terrible, I have no clue how to rate Humshakals. Sans a scintilla of intelligence, the film begins with a note from Sajid Khan about what a wise man had once said. It seems that Sajid never paid heed to the value of experience, which quite justifies the level of his films. Bereft of wit, the film banks on a convoluted narrative and one mess of a storyline. At 2 hours and 40 minutes, the film is an endurance test which I failed in. If you suck out Ram & Riteish, Humshakals is pretty much the worst film I have ever seen!

“My three-year-old niece cracks better jokes than this,” an English woman tells her friend barely few minutes into the movie, and that pretty much sums up Sajid Khan’s attempt at comedy. He packs in a bunch of old school PJs (poor jokes), hires three good-looking women and three men, who triple up into various shapes, sizes and hair-dos, to tickle us over two-hour-and-a-half-hours of screen time.Does it all add up to loads of fun and laughter? Well, not really. if you thought Sajid’s ‘Himmatwala’ was the worst movie ever in Bollywood, then you are wrong. The title has now been handed over to his latest attempt at slapstick comedy.

If you are willing to suspend belief for nearly three hours, then this mad bunch may make your day. But for others, it’s just torturous. At some point in the movie, we saw a DVD of Himmatwala (Sajid’s recent box-office debacle) being displayed as a weapon of torture for mentally unstable inmates who break hospital rules. Shouldn’t Humshakals feature on that list too?

  12. If you love Sajid Khan style of comedies, then there is a good amount of dum for you along with comical performances by Ritesh Deshmukh and few witty one-liners attached to the film. The movie has lots of flaws and stupid scenes that might not appeal at all to the intellectual crowd and the ones expecting it to be even at par with Sajid's earlier comedies. 'Humshakal's might be like a 'Ham-Specials' for many, but for the ones who enjoy this genre, it's a time-pass masala entertainer that sadly ends up as a three ring circus.

  22. HUMSHAKALS:
    Leave Entertainment, this is an insult to Cinema! [0.0/5]

    Disclaimer: The fact that I had admired Sajid khan long back for being literally an encyclopedia to 70s-80’s Bollywood, especially with all the lesser known junior artists, character actors and the inside out gossips from every corner of the Bombay Film Industry, now hardly there to exist. Sajid Khan as a filmmaker has completely lost the respect even for being the tiniest part of this creative medium. So if in this review of mine, I sound unapologetically personal and too harsh sometimes, it’s purely intentional. Follows the review…

    HUMSHAKALS is as illogical, as weird as its title. Neither there is a word like it in any of the dictionaries in the world, nor does this maddening world exist anywhere in this universe. Since it is supposedly a comedy of errors, I am going to try my best to make you laugh, or smile for that matter with some of its jokes. While working at a food-joint, one ‘Ashok & Kumar’ of the 3 look-alikes [Saif & Riteish; don’t bother who are the others] serves parathas made with cocaine and everyone around starts moving as either zombies or more like bhangra-lovers. Save yourself to witness them making ‘Vodka ke Parathe’. Don’t try this at your home!

    The next ‘Ashok & Kumar’, escapees from mental asylum are seen playing with the life-supportive ventilator of an old man in coma [Akash Khurana as if he’s more comfortable there than being in the main league] as if it is some video game. Insensitive? Wait, there is more. The warden at the so called ‘CRAY G. Hospital’ [Played by Satish Shah] keeps torturing the patients with his favorite electric treatment performed with naked wires. Now, where on earth one uses that technique is barely matters if you are in a Sajid Khan World. This is the world where drops of a drug can turn you in dogs. People still apply Chloroform on hankies to make their targets passed out. A lollypop can heal the mental stroke.

    Even all these can be overlooked if the very idea of entertainment is right, seriously, but it’s always like asking for too much from a Sajid Khan Film. Actually, it is an insult to your intellect and sensitivity as a human being. Homosexual men are again and again being portrayed as ‘always aroused’, moaning sex-starving guys. Characters cross-dress to seduce their look-alikes and fall into hysterically annoying love-cum-rape scenes. Songs come out of nowhere to just make it a loo-break in every 20-min or something. Considering the degree of stupidity Sajid throws at you, this is one nice & smartest move to keep viewers fresh like new from scratch. You should better take each one of them to survive the whole film.

    Bipasha had earlier made it clear that she wasn’t happy with the outcome and that’s why she kept herself away from the film promotions. I wonder what made Saif not go for that option. Watching him suffer as an actor who can’t even crack a joke properly or deliver an ordinary piece of dialogue without hamming is a terrible experience! Riteish and Ram are not so bad comparatively. We better not discuss the girls. They are hardly there to impress with their acting skills.

    At the end, I hope it is the end. Let’s just not take cinema for granted in the name of entertainment. Leave Entertainment alone, this is an insult to Cinema! I just can’t throw my precious stars on such waste of time, money and efforts of thousands of people on a film-set. Stay away, or else you might release your anger, aggression and distress caused by the film upon your friends and family! [0.0/5]

  26. This is the clear example of how people who have the money think that they can make a movie. What a pain right from the first frame till the last. The best part of the movie comes in the middle and that is the intermission, a break worth it and I think everyone in the movie theatre deserved it or at least they showed it on their faces. The stress level just increases with every humshakals being introduced. Saif has no timing at all to do a comedy character. The movie lacks one thing that had to be there and that's the humour. The jokes are so obvious and boring. They just over done and over cooked the dish. I am sure Sajid is among the few who liked the movie. Why do censor board validates these kind of films. These guys are looting people in the name of entertainment.
