Star cast: Saif Ali Khan, Kunal Khemu, Vir Das, Puja Gupta and Anand Tiwari

Director: Raj Nidimoru, Krishna D.K.

What’s Good: The film’s smart paced rhythm and sleek performances that have you rolling with laughter.

What’s Bad: The last 20 minutes of the film gets repetitive and drags on failing to evoke the maddening laughter it manages to sustain all through.

Loo Break: None at all.

Watch or Not?: Packed with rude humor, building on a novel Hollywood concept, the film is a must watch for its perfect concoction of hilarity and horror. Doing justice to the idea of Zom-Com that they introduced, it is the naughty, spoofy and the uninhibited performances of Kunal Khemu and Vir Das that keeps intact the film’s frenzy all through.

User Rating:

Despite a change of heart, Luv gets dumped by his girlfriend who has been cheating on him. His buddy Hardik gets caught in the middle of a make out session and ends up jobless. Climbing up on the back of their ‘good boy’ friend Bunny, the three embark on a feel good trip to Goa. Embarking on a journey to a rave party, a strange new drug converts its consumers into zombies. What happens once the trio wake up to a deserted island infested with zombies? Watch out for a tale of concrete humor, punched in a story of three clueless men, an island full of zombies and a zombie slayer!

Go Goa Gone Review: Script Analysis

I wouldn’t be surprised if the film has practically been lifted from a Hollywood film. However, it is the desi sensibilities that are deliberately added with judicious amount of wit which binds the fabric of the story together. Borrowing from a western concept, the film has its massive share of glitches. The good thing is that the duo Nidimoru and D.K enthuses for its audiences oodles of laughter which keeps you rolling till the end. It is for the massively satiating entertainment they largely provide, are these hitches easily ignorable to naked eyesight. Strictly a multiplex oriented, youth inviting film, I suggest you don’t watch it if you abhor grimy language and don’t have a taste for adult humor. For the younger brigade, it is a true-to-its-word ‘comic caper’.

Go Goa Gone Review: Star Performances

Kunal Khemu is a show stealer. With his character buying for itself all the juvenile, sleazy humor, it is he who gives you your money’s worth here!

Vir Das’ straight faced, matter of fact style of comedy is bone tickling to the core. Along with Kunal Khemu, their duo holds this profanely funny film tight.

Anand Tiwari does his role calculatedly, falling slightly short of Khemu and Das’ energy and vigor. Mostly adequate, he stays true to his stint and focuses his vision entirely on it alone.

Puja Gupta was sidelined for the good in the film. Though extremely hot, her screen space was unduly cut short for the larger good of the story.

Saif Ali Khan as Boris indulges you in his farcical Russian accent loftily. His kickass screen presence is flavorful despite lacking in minutes. But as Bollywood’s first zombie slayer, Junior Pataudi marks the beginning of a new trend in the horror genre of Bollywood films. 

Go Goa Gone Review: Direction, Music & Technical Aspects

As a Zom-Com or zombie comedy to elaborate, Raj Nidimoru and Krishna D.K squeeze out an uproarious gag. The second part could have been tauter, especially since the first part provokes out a mercilessly cheeky comedy but overall the director duo deserves credit for introducing an innovative idea and holding it valiantly through till the end.

Kunal Khemu renders to its lines trademark Bollywood slapstick fun, but does it so refreshingly and wittily, that it scores heavy points for the film. Small instances like holding Globalization responsible for the advent of zombies in India, proclaiming it to be the next HIV, are the nattily penned down dialogues that you can’t avoid noticing.

Songs could have been incorporated better with only Babaji ki Booti sticking to your tongues by the end! Though the post interval editing did get a little sloppy, it is the well churned out playful screenplay that fortifies the film.

Go Goa Gone Review: The Last Word

Go Goa Gone is a must one time watch. Stomping off a naïve horror concept in India, borrowing from a hit Hollywood formula, it is an unabashedly crazy film with Vir Das and Kunal Khemu delivering super performances. Relegated into the premise, the film is an exuberantly hilarious laughter riot that shouldn’t be missed. Honestly, I haven’t laughed this much in a film since Delhi Belly. Take a break from all the morose things in life and catch this one, believe me there can’t be any regrets! I am going with a 3.5/5 . Had the laugh riot the film induces in the first half persisted obstinately, the film would easily have been invincible!
