REVIEW: This film will surely be the latest entrant on your list of the so-bad-it’s-good variety of films. It is a must watch, just for the sake of guilty pleasure. This garish offering takes tackiness to an altogether new high. At a time when Indian cinema is upping its game, such run-in-the-mill formulaic films are so unabashedly and confidently giving the term ‘eye-sore’ a new meaning.
Sorry Daddy is a full-blown ham fest with unintentionally funny dialogues. The film’s story revolves around the cop and how he busts a major nexus that thrives on the business of beggary. This is an outdated idea and the makers make no attempt show any flair in reinventing the concept. Using the stocks props of the genre, the film shifts between its heroes, villains and their altercations over gimmicky punchlines.
The film puts on a 70s’ cloak but doesn’t have the benefit of a solid story. A series of scenes sewed together in a loose narrative fails to make an impact.
The acting department puts together ludicrous histrionics in dialogues that will put Kanti Shah’s Gunda to shame. Aapke wajood ka ansh mere wajood se judd gaya hai is how a woman announces her pregnancy. If you are looking for two hours of laugh-out-loud moments, resort to this unapologetic film. You wish the makers were half as sorry as their title claims.
