Movie Review – The Shaukeens **1/2

The_Shaukeens_2

It is a movie which lacks heart which is just the opposite of 1982 Basu Chatterjee classic. The three old men played by Annu Kapoor, Anupam Kher and Manoj Joshi are the highlight of the movie. Akshay Kumar has a interesting cameo but the lack of a good story and predictability is the draw back of the movie. I would like to especially acknowledge Manoj Joshi for his amazing comic timing which is very unlike his past movies.

Lisa Hayden is just about average and a better cast could have revived the movie buy Alas. Some songs are peppy but mostly out of place and not required. The movie is just about watchable but if you can wait you should be catching up with it very soon on TV.

*Poor, ** Below Average, ***Average, ****Good, ****Very Good
