Go Goa Gone Movie Review-Story Plot:
Luv (Vir Das), Hardik (Kunal Kemmu) and Bunny (Anand Tiwari) are three friends, who stay and work together in Mumbai. However, while Bunny is a typical 'good boy', the other two are dope-heads and slackers.
When Luv gets unceremoniously dumped by his girlfriend and Hardik ends up jeopardizing his job by getting caught smoking a joint in the office, the duo decide to head out of the city for a break. When Bunny announces that he has to go to Goa on the company's buck for an important official presentation, the two friends gleefully latch onto him at the prospect of having a good time.
However, Goa is not just a place for beaches, beer and bikinis-as the trio discover after a wild rave party organised by the Russian Mob on an island. After a night of debauchery, the three friends and Luna (Puja Gupta), a woman who tells them about the party, find themselves trapped on the island, which is now infested by an army of zombies. However, all hopes are not lost and they find a saviour in the form of Russian mobster Boris (Saif Ali Khan).
Now, all they have to do is find their boat and get the hell out of that island...
Go Goa Gone Movie Review-Performances:
Kunal Kemmu and Vir Das have proved their talent at comedy in their previous films and when these two men come together, it's an absolute riot! Their funny dialogues, their comic timing and mannerisms will make you laugh till your sides hurt. Anand Tiwai as Bunny too holds his own as far as the comic quotient is concerned. Puja Gupta looks great on the screen, but doesn't get too much to do. However, to be fair to her, she puts in a decent effort. Saif as Boris the Russian mobster too elicits quite a few chuckles with his performance as the foul-mouthed killer, though it is Das and Kemmu (especially the latter), who take away the cake.
Go Goa Gone Movie Review-Direction:
Like mentioned earlier, Go Goa Gone is one of the wackiest comedies to have come after a long time. Director duo Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK have effectively infused the zombie genre with cheeky comedy to present a totally fun ride. The humour is very contemporary and effortless and the dialogues are funny and witty. However, the film is not just a barrel of laughs and there are moments in the film, (especially during the scenes when the zombies are chasing the good guys) that you might find yourself on the edge of the seat, urging the protagonists to run faster, for crissakes!!
On the flip side (and every film has one), the last few minutes of the film are somewhat 'senti' and preachy, but then, the rest of the movie is so enjoyable that one does not have the heart to frown at a few minutes of lecturebaazi at the end.
Go Goa Gone Movie Review-Music:
The music is quite yuppy and upbeat and the numbers like Khoon choos le, slowly slowly and Babaji ki booti are sure to be welcomed with open arms by the audience.
Go Goa Gone Movie Review-Final Word:
This crazy, wacky trip is totally worth it...and then some!
