GOD TUSSI GREAT HO : A simple & sober film but again inspired. (Movie Review By Bobby Sing)
15 Aug, 2008 | Movie Reviews / 2008 Releases

As you may have guessed the movie is inspired from Jim Carrey’s “Bruce Almighty”. But keeping that fact aside, the movie is a simple, sober and clean flick which also has a sweet message to give. In other words its a well adapted movie which is not great, but still good for a family evening. “Bruce Almighty” sticks to its comedy theme throughout but “GTGH” shifts its emphasis from comedy to social issues too. Therefore it cannot be called as a complete comic entertainer.   

The film starts slowly and takes too much time to settle down. The director should have come to the main theme of “God” much earlier, but instead he introduces this plot just before the interval. The movie could be more enjoyable if the script was based on this single plot with some more comedy sequences.
The story revolves around a plot in which God gives Salman the powers to run the world for ten days. And then Salman does what he thinks will be good for all, but messes it up. The first half of the movie is all predictable with repeated scenes seen many times before. The novel theme comes too late which is the major drawback of the movie. After “The God’s” entry, it picks up and that makes the second half much better than the first.
Performance wise Salman Khan plays his part convincingly. But Priyanka is just there in the film as the leading lady. Though they both look good together in their scenes and songs. The chemistry between Sohail & Salman was quite similar to “Hello Brother” and it entertains in some scenes. Amitabh Bachhan as “The God” looks very descent and elegant. In fact no other actor comes to your mind who can play “The God” dressed in white suits, other than Amitabh. All the comic actors in the movie (like Rajpal Yadav) have very few funny lines to offer which makes you feel asking for more. It can be said that everyone has acted his part well but the script is too simple to give any one an opportunity to stand out.
Music department only comes with one good song, “Aa Chalti Kya” and all other songs are below average. Songs in the second half were not needed at all as they slow down the pace of the movie. Special Effects are also ok and don’t go over the board. But it was a little strange to see that “The God” chooses to meet Salman, through the unexisting floor of a five star hotel.  
The direction is very simple and the director keeps shifting between the comedy and social track in the second half. It could have been executed in a far better way. The best part of the movie comes in the last 40 minutes where the narration is inspired from Hrishikesh Mukherjee kind of cinema. Interestingly it made me remember one old Hrishikesh Mukherjee film “Naukri” starring Rajesh Khanna, where he meets an angle, who shows him the real world (which was also an inspired one).
Another impressive part of the movie is the message it gives in the last minutes. That makes you feel good about what you have in life and teaches you to be contented always with whatever you get from your life & “God”.
So, its not a great movie and gets only average marks. But it is a cute, clean, family movie which can be enjoyed in the festive weekends. It lacks the content of becoming a hit or blockbuster.
Rating : 2.5 / 5
