KLPD Review In Short
A young man and a woman get stranded one night in Delhi after they miss their last Metro and get embroiled in a high stakes crime…
KLPD Review Story Plot
Lokesh Duggal a.k.a Lucky (Vivek Oberoi
) is a happy go lucky Delhi University student, whose life revolves around his attempts to score girls. However, when he gets on the last Metro train and agrees to do a favour for a mysterious 'damsel in distress' (Neha Dhupia
), the unlucky Lucky gets sent on a roller-coaster ride around Delhi, being chased by cops as well as a bunch of criminals.
Thrown in the mix is Lovina (Mallika Sherawat
), another mysterious female with a secret agenda, a Haryanvi goon Kaptan (Ashutosh Rana
) and his bunch of crass brigands, a psychotic pizza delivery boy named Nunna (Anshuman Jha
) and a posse of corrupt cops hell-bent on mayhem.
KLPD Review Performances
Vivek Oberoi, who has been away from the silver screen for a couple of years, does manage to put in a decent performance as the 'tharki
Lucky', with his typical Delhi accent and mannerisms. However, merely that is not enough to salvage a film suffering from other short-comings and hence, the Saathiya
star's efforts go in vain. Mallika Sherawat, who had displayed a decent comic timing in films like Welcome
, puts in a disappointing performance and her 'bimbo' act with the irritating accent tends to get on your nerves. Ashutosh Rana as the Haryanvi bad boy does make you guffaw at certain points though Jha's psychotic pizza delivery boy act makes you think of just one word-weird!
KLPD Review Direction
This reviewer had immensely enjoyed Khanduri's debut movie Ek Chalis Ki Last Local
, which is why KLPD
comes as an utter shock. Though most of the situations in this movie are similar to the ones in the Abhay Deol
starrer movie, KLPD
suffers from a mixture of crass humour, weak screenplay, poor characterization and unimpressive dialogues. Moreover, the second half of the movie seems to drag on and on without remorse, which will surely aggravate your boredom.
KLPD Review Music
Apart from dhishkiyaon, which seems like a peppy number and appy budday, which has a very Delhi-Punjabi feel to it, the music of the movie is not really worth remembering…
