Freaky Ali: A Freaking Fun Movie

Freaky Ali by Sohail Khan Productions is a cocktail of emotions, comedy, fun, romance, sportsmanship and most importantly ‘the winner attitude’.

As the story suggests, Ali is struggling financially to buy some comfort in life for himself and his adoptive mother. His friendship with Maqsood leads him to work for a local goon as an extortion debt collector. Ali’s accidental encounter with a golfer reveals his Godgifted prowess for natural swings which co-incides with the sixer shots of cricket. His talent is recognized by the caddy who happens to be his neighbor. And then starts the fun filled roller coaster ride of Ali from being a local goon to a celebrated golfer.

The storyline of “Freaky Ali’ has a striking resemblance to “Happy Gilmore” which gently reminds you of same production movie “God Tussi Great Ho” which had almost everything in common with “Bruce Almighty”.

Anyways, keeping all these issues aside, there is no doubt that “Freaky Ali” is a funny movie which doesn’t demand much logic or brain-storming. The plot structure is straight and predictable. Nawazuddin Siddiqui delivers some punch dialogues. Amy Jackson and Niketan Dheer continue to disappoint with their acting. Rest of the actors including Arbaz Khan, are average. And as expected, Nawazuddin Siddiqui displays his marvelous acting skills in a comic role. There wasn’t much scope for songs in this movie. But to mention, “Parinda hai Parinda…” is soothing to ears.

Why to watch:
     1.     If you wish to enjoy fun-filled light hearted weekend.
     2.     If you watched and liked “Sultan”, then, trust me it is more promising.
     3.     For Nawazuddin Siddiqui

Why not to watch:
     1.  If you look for logic in every movie.
    2.  If you don’t digest Hollywood copies that easily.
     3. If you look for method actors.

Banker’s Verdict – “Freaky Ali” is a cost-effective movie worth investing your hard earned money. It works on the theory of “no loss, no gain”

Rating – 2.5/5
