Jaideep Sen’s directorial debut, which is produced by Rakesh Roshan is about four madmen having peculiar personalities, being taken out for a change, finally involved in a kidnapping plot. As projected in it promos, it was supposed to have “humor in abundance” in the film Krazzy 4, unfortunately it barely has any genuine funny situations.
Krazzy 4 is the story of four mental patients – Raja (Arshad Warsi) who is temperamental, Daboo (Suresh Menon) who can’t speak, Mukherjee (Irrfan Khan) is a cleanliness freak with a compulsive disorder for neatness. Gangadhar (Rajpal Yadav) who thinks that he still lives in a bygone era of the pre-independence days.
The pretty doctor – Sonali (Juhi Chawla) believes in treating her patients with love and understanding. Thinking that these four guys need to be some time away in interaction to the outer world which might benefit them, she takes them to the city to watch a cricket match. On reaching the city, our Dr. Sonali is kidnapped by her own husband (Rajat Kapoor) who is a politician. The foursome is stranded. While Raj stumbles upon his ex-girlfriend (Dia Mirza) while Mukherjee meets his daughter out of nowhere. Being all alone in the bad outside world, the crazy four set off to rescue their doctor.
There are many such cinematic coincidences as the film progresses, and towards the end, it is a clichéd climax where the four give long lectures on how its better off being stupid and unintelligent than being bad in the mad world outside.
The performances are not upto to the mark. Arshad Warsi’s repeated anger bouts do not amuse. Irrfan Khan looks lost. Rajpal Yadav is just bearable, sadly the director failed to capitalize on the gifted comedian Suresh Menon who is made to play the dumb character, which otherwise could have more amusing moments.
Highlights of the film Krazzy 4 are the two items numbers played by our Rakhi Sawant and other by Shah Rukh Khan. Nothing great in the other songs, except superb dance by Hritik Roshan in the title track.
