Total Siyapaa
Report dated 08/03/2014 @ 2:51 PM

Total Siyapaa Cast: Ali Zafar, Yami Gautam, Kirron Kher, Anupam Kher

Direction: E Niwas

This 'Aman Ki Asha' is set on neither side of the Indo-Pak border. In fact, it crosses over to Brit-land, where butter chicken and bhangra rule the angrezis. And where Singhs are Kings. Here lies the love story of an Indian girl Asha (Yami) and a Pakistani boy Aman (Ali) who're much in love, but confused about how to cross over to the other side.

Well, one has to brave it, so Aman walks into a battlefield of boisterous Punjabi in-laws-to-be. Meet the high-pitched, melodramatic mom-in-law (Kirron) who's convinced "Yeh shaadi kabhi working nahin karega!". She tries hard to like her 'damn-aad' (son-in-law-to-be), but his buffoonery leaves her hysterical. Jiah (Sara Khan) is the feisty sis-in-law who breaks into sexy table-top dances and her 5-year-old daughter amusingly plays 'pregnancy' games. Adding to the mayhem is ex-army, senile dadaji (who took shots at Pakis in a real war) and an eccentric anti-Pakistani bro-in-law.

Much later, pa-in-law (Anupam) appears after his night-out with a Brit hooker, causing more chaos in the madhouse. Evidently, there is no hope for peace in this Indo-Pak love war. One crazy act leads to the other, until comedy crosses over to insanity.

E. Niwas' story (adaptation of Spanish rom-com 'Seres Queridos') shows flashes of madness peppered with some 'LOL' dialogues, but the screenplay (Neeraj Pandey) is insipid and loses its comedy metre too often to entertain throughout. The plot had potential to induce much more hilarity (picture this: a dabba of frozen soup could change Aman's love life!), but it quickly deflates. In parts, it zestfully breezes through sensitive issues (POK, terrorism and Shahid Afridi) with political incorrectness, but decent humour.

Ali shows flair for comedy but he doesn't get too many such moments. Yami is pleasant but her bewildered look distracts. Anupam Kher is quite wasted, and it's Kirron Kher who holds the madhouse together and provides the best laughs even with limited scope.

Like a cold, cloudy morning in London, this one leaves you with more gloom than glee.
