From the recent Salman Khan starrer Wanted :
Picture this. Retired cop tied to a chair, ruthless villain trying to talk him out into naming his son. This is how the conversation goes :
Villian : Achcha ek baat bata. Tera mara mooh dekhne ke liye to tera beta aayega na ? Ya darr ke maare chupa rahega ?
Retired cop : Mard ka bachcha hai, jaroor aayeja.
Villian (pulls out a gun) : Bang ! Bang ! Bang !
Yeah hard luck ‘dying dude’, but you totally asked for it. Next time, pause and think for a moment before you answer.
I have no idea why I saw Wanted, and in spite of some unintentionally hilarious moments, it is a fairly engaging watch. It has no theme, a one-dimensional plot, if any, and isn’t intelligent cinema. I am compelled to compare it with Ghajini since both are mindless action movies. I am going to go ahead and say that in that genre, this one might be marginally better (No need to mention, but Rahman’s music wins in Ghajini). I’d want to watch the Telugu version Pokiri though; I believe Mahesh Babu can look and play the protagonist far better than Salman.
