Length: 2.10 hours approximately
In the modest time of 2.10 hours of its run-play, HUM TUM SHABANA has so many bizzare situations mingled in it, that one definitely forgets, he actually has many more things to do in life rather. The film has no link between the two halves of it. The first hour shows that the two male protagonists are trying to woo the female one, and it the latter half you have these two trying to get away from her. It is such an complex and unfunny film, which will not value the intelligence of even a 6yrs child.
The plot speaks nothing about comedy, instead it speaks how silly the writing could be. The first half ends up with few breezy jokes which makes first half atleast watchable. But its post-intermission where everything goes in red area. The climax in the horror house is simply not funny. If firing bullets and missing those ones are meant to be laughed at, then the makers really have to aim only at the Children. the film has so much of firing scenes in it which many you won't find even in an ordinary action films. One has to be very patient if he his challenging himself to sit throughout the film.
And you also have some lavishly shot ramp walks, where you have sexy models to distract you from the flaws. But one just can't digest such portions in the film which is made under the genre of comedy. If this is what we call comedy, then there has to be an upper name for Priyadarshan comedies whose even bad Films are much more funny and entertaining, if compared to HUM TUM SHABANA.
The film has ordinary music, with two good songs in first half. The cinematography is nothing new. The film lacks because the writer has not justified with the film. Also lackens is the screenplay. Sagar Ballary who gave us a smart BHEJA FRY, fails miserably this time leaving you with some juvenile jokes.
Shreyas Talade does reasonably well in many scenes. He tries hard to bring a chuckle of laugh from you, but the jokes are simply bad. Tushar kapoor hams it up and fails in every scene. You also get a chance to see his GOLMAAL character in one of the scene in first half, but he disappoints. Rest all are bad.
To cut the long story short, HUM TUM SHABANA is a trash which doesn't deserve to be watched.
