Star cast: Akshay Kumar, Tamannaah Bhatia, Prakash Raj, Sonu Sood, Mithun Chakraborty, Krushna Abhishek
What’s Good: Junior – the wonder-dog and his entire canine brethren.
What’s Bad: Everything else. From the poor CG, to the lack of novelty in the story, to the utterly wobbly screenplay with severe continuity and factual errors. Not that I was seeking logic but I was seeking fun which too is too much to ask from this film.
Loo break: If it keeps you away from the movie, it is the best place to be.
Watch or Not?: Entertainment serves trash in the garb of entertaining you. As competent as I think Sajid Farhad are, their filmmaking skills doesn’t reflect their prowess over good writing. Jokes kept flowing thick for the first 15 minutes and everything after that was drab. How many times can you laugh over the ‘Tere toh Jacqueline lag gaye’ (prototype) joke? Akshay doesn’t even near funny as he beats Salman in sleepwalking through roles. If you are solely depending on the dog’s cuteness factor for relishing the film, I would recommend a bountiful experience at a dog show for you. Some films don’t deserve audiences, after 140 minutes of sparse laughs and sheer drudgery, I can safely say Entertainment is one of them and take harebrained to another dimension altogether!
Akhil (Akshay Kumar) is living in abject poverty, doing 4 jobs a day to earn for his ailing father. It turns out that his father has been faking the illness because he isn’t his own son. While tracing back, Akhil discovers that he is the son of Bangkok’s diamond merchant Panna Lal Johri (Dalip Tahil). When Akhil reaches Bangkok he discovers that he must fight the heir of his father Entertainment (Junior) to get the 3000 crore worth property of his deceased father.
Then begins the tussle between Entertainment and Akhil over the property. Who wins is not the story but how it concludes into a warm ending is what must be watched.
