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.

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’!

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
