    Joker is like a moronic, alternate-reality version of Swades. I want Shreyas Talpade’s character from Joker and Tusshar Kapoor’s vowels-only character from Golmaal to star in a movie together, just so I can buy the DVD and blow it up.

    • LOL! I stopped watching the GOLMAAL ‘franchise’ after the first. Not a big Rohit Shetty fan.

      But I agree. JOKER is a dumb witted 3rd cousin of SWADES. Great comparison!

    Lol! Enjoyed reading it 😀 I haven’t seen Joker but it’s so hilarious to think that an inhabitant of such a village went to the US and (more ridiculously) became a scientist! 😛

    Completely agree with you! I was expecting more, but not random people dressing up as aliens – which frankly got annoying from their first attempt. With the village not having any economic and financial gain?! Thats crazy, these people would have been dead by now! Plus I wanted Shreyas to (atleast) at one point maybe start talking properly! Great review!

    • I’m sorry. I’ve spent all my hate on this movie to properly reply to your comment. But yes. This was a suck fest of massive proportions.

      Glad to see most agree. Thanks for stopping by.

    • Thanks Meera. I didnt expect such stupidity from Akshay or the Director. I feel personally betrayed. Lol.

      And it’s sad when they waste such talent like Shreyas on such an insignificant role. Despite his debit being a non speaking role in IQBAL.
