Joker review – 2012 Bollywood Hindi movie starring Akshay Kumar, Sonakshi Sinha in the lead roles.
Filmmaker Shirish Kunder emerges with a strange concept as she shows off aliens in the movie in a fancy way. Kunder’s new release Joker looks to be very different from the real world. Joker has stars Akshay Kumar, Sonakshi Sinha, Shreyas Talpade in the leads, spins around a funny, but a madcap story. Akshay Kumar is going through best path of his career who grabbed two 100crore blockbusters in a row in the form of Housefull2 & Rowdy Rathore. Joker is his third film of 2012 hits the screens. Joker is a fantasy adventure film is reportedly Akshay Kumar’s 100th film.
Joker has a fantastic shot falling in the first half and everything goes simply superb. Akshay Kumar who made us get engaged to the screens with his Housefull2 & Rowdy Rathore got a serious role here. And no wonder he is fine in this film too. Sonakshi Sinha is OK. Shreyas Talpade is a big surprise and entertained us more in this film. Asrani is comical as his english subtitles for his each hindi lines are really witty. Rest of the actors are good in their own roles. Alien Golkot is very funny and it’s a visual treat for all the children. Music composed by GV Prakash who is Nephew of AR Rahman is decent and all the 4 songs Kaafirana, Jugnu, Singh Raja & Yeh Joker are good. Shirish Kunder directed the first half amazingly. Outstanding location & production value is just superb. The negative kicks off in the Second Half itself is a negative for the film as some scenes are absolute trash. All in all Joker is just about an average film which has outstanding first half & music as its positives and the whole second half as a letdown. Take your kids, they will enjoy for sure.
Rating: 2.5/5 – Strictly Average
Aliens visit a village that is not on the map of our country, what hell would break loose?! Joker is the story of Agastya (Akshay Kumar), a researcher probing the existence of aliens in the universe, who returns to his small little native village with his wife Diva(Sonakshi Sinha). The out of luck Agastya takes it upon himself to put his crazy village on the global map and continues with his alien exploration from there. While his plan gets the village attention from across the world, it also comes with a great deal of risk. For the rest of the exciting story watch out in the theater.
