Zila Ghaziabad Movie Review

Ratings:2/5   Zila Ghaziabad Review By: Taran Adarsh  Site: Bollywood Hungama

ZILA GHAZIABAD, which borrows heavily from Vishal Bhardwaj’s OMKARA, Abhinav Kashyap’s DABANGG and also from the cinema of 1970s and 1980s. Nothing wrong with borrowing/seeking inspiration from the cinema of yore, or movies that have tremendous recall value, but the fact is that the premise of ZILA GHAZIABAD is thinner than wafer, with the movie constantly giving you the feeling of déjà vu. The silver lining is that everything unravels at a feverish pace, with a couple of dramatic moments camouflaging the deficiencies. Also, Arshad Warsi’s wickedness makes the good versus evil fight look credible at times. On the whole, ZILA GHAZIABAD is purely for the mass belt, the single screen audience mainly.

Body & Blood Count Warning: Enter ‘Zilla Ghaziabad’ (the movie) at your own bullet-ridden risk. With bullet-proof jackets, reloaded ammo and ready-for-assault – of senses and sensibilities – at the rate of one gunshot every few minutes. Riddled with grotesque characteristics and cliches of most gang-banger films, the set-up is simple – a gaon full of goondas with golis and gaalis. Add to that endless ensemble – unscrupulous politicians, perilous panchayats, chhamiyas in itsy-bitsy cholis and some maa-behens Save yourself a trip to ‘ZG’. Visit a re-run of ‘GodZILLA’ instead!

It takes a special kind of talent to make a film like Zila Ghaziabad. The film evokes laughter, exasperation, and fear, but in all the wrong places. The seemingly unapologetic disregard for authenticity is especially noteworthy.There is no strategy, and no thought given to how each gang will one-up the other as they just go around killing off each other at whim. Action scenes look like choreographed dance sequences — Sanjay Dutt and Vivek Oebroi are literally flying in the climax fight scene — and wisecracks are as asinine as can be. That, primarily, is the motif of the film. It’s a film made up of random shots, heavily- borrowed technique and half-baked direction. To put it mildly, Zila Ghaziabad is assembly-line garbage.

Zila Ghaziabad is unalloyed trash. It is headed straight for the dump yard – stay well clear. It is unlikely that there has ever been, or ever will be, a movie quite like Zila Ghaziabad – it is supposedly inspired by real-life incidents and characters and is yet bereft of any semblance of authenticity. Must have taken some doing! The film unleashes such a merciless, ceaseless and mindless onslaught on the senses and the eardrums that it could actually put the assault rifles of the most trigger-happy of crime lords in the shade.

The film ticks ever possible box on the ‘been-there-seen-that’ check list. Lets have the mandatory cop (Sanjay Dutt) who apes Salman Khan’s often imitated but never duplicated Dabanggesque dance moves. Bring in Paresh Rawal to lend some credibility to the acting quotient. Thrown in an item song since the story is set up north (ever since Shilpa Shetty claimed domination over UP, Bihar) and add a bunch of familiar faces. Zila Ghaziabad might boast a big ensemble cast, but numbers can’t make up for the poor execution and weak screenplay. Watch it only if you crave for a mediocre Dabangg or Rowdy Rathore wannabe!

What’s Good: A few sequences; Arshad Warsi’s acting. What’s Bad: Almost everything else. Loo break: As many as you like. Watch or Not?: Zila Ghaziabad is a forceful mix of gang-wars, hinterland action and a sprinkle of a nasty Dabangg-esque cop too and disappoints miserably. Zila Ghaziabad is a gang-war story done in a confused Dabangg style that will bore the daylights out of you.

you have ‘Zila Ghaziabad’ painted in the shades of ‘Dabangg’ series in every possible way. So here you have ample gravity-defying action stunts, a hulky and bulky policeman to set things straight, a romance element thrown in, raunchy item numbers for cheap thrills, lots of blood bath and you can keep adding other possible paraphernalia.So now the question is whether or not to watch the film? Well, watch it only and only if you don’t have anything more interesting to do this weekend.

Truly enough, ‘Zila Ghaziabad’ has a lot of that bursting happening, especially of the ear-drums! There are two rival gangs going at one another with full josh and ammunition because of a silly misunderstanding. And an equally rogue cop brought in to deal with them. Dialogue ke upar dialogue, dhisoom ke upar dhishoom, dead body ke upar dead body, khoon ka badla khoon. Explaining the plot needs too much investment of memory. But if you have seen ‘Dabangg’, ‘Omkara’, ‘Singham’, and grubby unshaven sweaty men with tobacco-laden teeth is your thing, then who am I to discourage?
