Movie Review : De Taali

De Taali
Cast: Aftab Shivdasani, Riteish Deshmukh, Ayesha Takia, Rimii Sen
Direction: E. Niwas

THE funniest line of the film comes as a graffiti scrawled on the friendship wall. 'Amu is a Boy,' is boldly scrawled on the walls of the tree house by the trio of friends which includes Abhi (Aftab Shivdasani), Paglu (Riteish Deshmukh) and Amu (Ayesha Takia). Obviously Amu is the archetypal one-of-the-boys girls in this backslappers club, despite her two plaits and her red nails. Ironically, the film is unable to cash in on this cute camaraderie between three best friends and gets into schmaltzy terrain that threatens to smother the laughs, time and again. Purely a case of comedy gone sour.

Now that's sad, specially since the film throws up some interesting characters and some goofy acting that could have augured well for a breezy comic act. Trouble begins in this light-hearted drama when ebullient Amu loses her heart to her best friend Abhi, just when he seems to have finally found true love after 31 aborted tries. Trouble turns somewhat zany when the friends (Amu and Paglu) discover the newfound love interest (Rimii Sen) in their friend's life is a cunning gold digger who has run away from home and sent innumerable men to support groups for the alcoholic. The friendly duo kidnaps the bride-to-be and hopes to cure their friend of his obsession. But love, ah! And bad girls, ah!

The film gets too long and repetitive, even though it has its funny moments. Rimii Sen joins the galaxy of glam-crooks that have been parading the hall of fame this year.
