Mon Jul 6 2009Sylvester Stallone, Brandon Routh and Denise Richards cameo as themselves in this embarrassing Bollywood attempt at a 'battle of the sexes' comedy. Set in Los Angeles, it follows sultry surgeon Bebo's (Kapoor) plan to retrieve her singing watch which she accidentally dropped during an operation into the stomach of sexist stuntman Viraj (Kumar). This masala mishmash of at least three Hollywood romcom's represents everything which is superbad about current Bollywood humour. Unfunny Benny Hill-type gags involving cake, Viagra, gays, blacks, a strip search and terrorism abound. Most worrying is its continuous casual depiction of violence towards women who are frequently referred to as either 'bitch', 'nosy cow' or 'frigid babe'. Kumar delivers another hammy performance; Kapoor equates pouting to acting. Dammit! It's regressive crap!
