TMK gets the assignment of his life when he's asked to steal gold and antiques worth over Rs 500 crore from a running
So he poses as a film director, befriends a village promising the locals roles in the film and even convinces superstar Aatish Kapoor (Khanna) to act in it. How he manages to pull it off and even bags an Oscar for his 'debut
WHAT'S HOT: With TMK, Farah changes her style, narrative and treatment to a considerable extent. The gags begin from the first reel itself when she shows TMK learning the tricks of the trade while in his mother's womb. The sequence sets the tone for the entire film.
The first half is packed with loads of 'highlights' and hilarious moments. The humour is brazen, in-your-face and considerably loud. But it works because it follows the essence of the film.
TMK is like an outrageous spoof and it should be viewed keeping that in mind. Farah maintains that tempo throughout be it the hero-heroine relationship, the cops, the villagers, the Bollywood superstar or the baddies each chapter is a take-off.
The director also does a super job with her ensemble cast and each
While Katrina Kaif rocks Sheila Ki Jawaani, Salman Khan's entry in the Wallah Re Wallah song is guaranteed to bring the house down.
And don't miss Anil Kapoor's revival of his Oscar-winning jig with slum kids. The Happy Ending song during the end credits is one of the biggest highlights. Shirish Kunder does a fabulous job with the dialogues and the background score.
Farah's presentation of Akshay Kumar is brilliant and the actor is super in the comic sequences. Akshaye Khanna as the Oscar ka bhookha superstar is magic on screen. Even in a short role, he makes a solid impact.
WHAT'S NOT: The weak point is the story. If you're looking for logic, you will question why the stuff is being transferred on a local
You expect things to pick up in the second half; you expect some more drama; you expect novelty. The build-up towards the climax begins very early in the film so there are huge expectations from this heist. That portion needed to have a bigger impact.
Also, to establish TMK as one of the deadliest con men, there should have been some more sequences with him pulling off awe-inspiring stunts. The entire segment of the headless ghost is a waste it doesn't go with the film's flow. Katrina's longest scene in the film is the Sheila Ki Jawaani song. In the rest of the film, she has only one-liners.
WHAT TO DO: TMK has too many highlights forget the logic and watch it.
