Slapstick finds favor over the subtle: No to Darling
By Behindwoods News Bureau.
September 13, 2007
Ramgopal Varma’s cup of woes has just spilt over. He was hoping to redeem himself with Darling after the Aag disaster. But in spite of the positive reviews about Darling being a well-made product and the above average viewers opinion coupled with reports that Fardeen Khan and Esha Deol have given their career best has not helped the movie.

Seems like people are just not ready for another RGV movie after what they experienced with Aag. Darling is not a repeat of Aag, but it has not come even close to being called a hit. It might eventually fold up as an average grosser.

But there seems to have been a gainer amidst the rut. The multi-starrer slapstick comedy Dhamaal has managed to pick up after the dull opening. The low budget and relatively short shooting period might help the film make profits. Though not a hit on the lines of Partner or Hey Baby, Dhamaal keeps the comedy season of Bollywood alive and kicking for Diwali. Also it gives the rather beleaguered Sanjay Dutt a reason to smile.

Dhamaal is not a finely crafted comedy but has enough laughs in it to stifle yawns and make the viewer go back without any negatives to say. But clearly Dhamaal has coasted to success on the path that was blazed by some finely made comedies earlier this year. Nowadays in Bollywood any comedy seems to sell, except if it comes from Ramgopal Verma. He is having a tough time- should meet his astrologer. India Search
