“Jolly LLB” famed filmmaker Subhash Kapoor is all set to raise some key social issues through this comedy. Guddu and Rangeela are orchestra singers along with assisting local gangsters in petty crimes. However, they follow one rule, i.e., stay clear of kidnappings, murders and robberies. Everything turns topsy-turvy when an incident forces them to break their rule and kidnap a deaf and mute girl named – Baby. Further, the situation goes out of control when they find themselves caught in the dangerous khap-land of Billu Pahalwan. How did they reach here? And will the duo escape this mess? This movie is high on action, drama, humor and romance.

The film is weighed down by a lousy script that squanders all potential

‘Guddu Rangeela’ Suffers From Multiple Story Disorder

Barring the stray rough edges, Guddu Rangeela is eminently watchable.

Guddu Rangeela‘s quirky dialogues do not make up for its overly commercial plot. The film loses its meaning thanks to a dragging second half.

Watch it if you have to, for the chemistry between the two male leads.

It’s no Ishqiya, but at least it has some heart.

So ‘Guddu Rangeela’ had all the potential of becoming a powerful, deeply disturbing film which shows the mirror to the archaic, barbaric ways that a particular panchayat functions in. But, alas, it is not.

In a nutshell, Guddu Rangeela refuses to rise above the average level. And, before I finish, here’s a quote by Roman emperor Marcus Aurelius (121 AD – 180 AD): To refrain from imitation is the best revenge.

This could have been a fun, breezy film rooted in a milieu that often throws disturbing questions at us, but ends up coming across as too convenient and banal.

What could have genuinely raised the bar though, is a slicker pace, additional gloss and superstar charisma.

While jauntiness is to the fore, the Arshad Warsi film is good fun.

On the whole, GUDDU RANGEELA is quite ‘colourless’ and offers nothing new.
