Review: Mubarakan

Mubarakan

Mubarakan

Short Review:
Anees Bazmee (director of Welcome, Singh is King, Ready, No Problem, Welcome Back) brings situational comedy of errors: Mubarakan in year 2017. It’s full paisa vasool joyful ride for the entire family. Anees Bazmee brilliantly rounds this up well into a colorful, happy laughathon showcasing the Chacha Bhatija duo – Anil Kapoor and Arjun Kapoor in ‘jhakaas’ form. First half is complete laugh riot whereas second half loses the steam in last 25-30 minutes. The humour in Mubarakan does take a bit of time to set in. Bazmee takes time to establish the emotional connect between the characters giving us their back stories before beginning the Laugh-A-Thon. Arjun Kapoor, who doubles up as Karan (the smart guy) and Charan (the duffer), proves a point with this madcap...
