Dus (2005): What a sheen on the sham


57. Dus (2005) — This is exactly the kind of movie one shouldn’t watch after taking in Munich and all its mournful glory. I mean, apart from the ultra-simplistic treatment of a serious subject (but it would be unfair to expect the same seriousness from this movie, since it doesn’t pretend to be anything other than entertainment) — knock knock. Kaun hai? De Plott. De Plott who? De Plott’s got more holes than a sinking ship, man! Approximate style with icky splats of substance. Actually, I think my deepest gripe is with the crazy stunts; I’ve heard tell of the illogical aspects of some Bollywood action movies, but this is the first time I’ve witnessed this radical approach to logic! Saving graces: Zayed Khan’s black boxer shorts under his white suit (so it’s true!), the low-angle shot of Shilpa Shetty’s kicking the crap outta a stuntman (that’s the actress in the pic), that nice shot of Zayed Khan streaking through the air (weird but nice) and the Dus Bahane video. Otherwise, avoid, avoid!
