‘Bhaag Johnny‘ is the relaunch pad of two stars Kunal Kemmu and Zoa Morani. The storyline is based on a span of three days in which the lead character has to live a double life. He has to kill his love and also save her, within the time period, confusing isn’t it? The storyline written by Vikram Bhatt; though quite unique does not hold the attention of the viewer for long; who feels that he is being taken for a ride.
‘Bhaag Johnny’ starts with Janardan Arora or Johnny (Kunal Kemmu)happy earning his living in far off Bangkok. Things are going fine until his Boss Ramona Bakshi (Manasi Scott) blackmails him to become a contract killer for her, in exchange of not reporting his illegal insider trading activities. He is sent off to Pattaya by the boss to kill Tanya (Zoa Morani).
The reluctant scapegoat meets a genie(Seems like we have entered the world of Aladdin), who helps him by gifting a dual life. In one life Johnny kills Tanya, in another he saves her and escapes.
You will have to watch the film to know which life Johnny chooses?
Kunal Kemmu though a good actor is let down by the script of his movies, the same thing has happened with ‘Bhaag Johnny’ too. The handsome talented actor is wasted in the film. Zoa Morani still has a long way to go before she achieves the nuances of acting. The other leading lady Manasi Scott is just a mannequin, strutting around in designer wear. Mukul Dev as usual is seen as a shoddy character that he has been doing for some time now. The funniest is that Vikram Bhatt is portraying the role of a genie in the movie.
The music of the film is popular and the club number ‘Daddy Mummy’ is already a chartbuster, but the background score leaves much to be desired. The Shivam Nair movie does not have anything new to offer except the story.
Watch it at your own risk.
