Save us from Tom, Dick & Harry

Sonia Chopra | May 12, 2006 19:30 IST

Deepak Tijori insists on making films (Oops!, Khamosh, and Fareb) and tormenting an unsuspecting audience. The tragedy is, his enthusiasm is in sharp contrast to the dwindling quality of his creations.

As you are already informed by the screaming posters, Tom Dick and Harry is 'a mindless comedy of deaf, blind and dumb.' It's nice of them to warn us, except that it's not a comedy. No siree, whatever else it may be, a comedy it certainly is not.

Deaf Tom (Dino Morea), blind Dick (Anuj Sawhney) and dumb Harry (Jimmy Shergill) somehow come to share an apartment; how and when is explained at leisure for about an hour and a half, interjected by a couple of foreign-babes-in-bikinis songs.

The apartment is owned by someone called Happy -- a Sardar, complete with a loud 'Punjabi' voiceover whenever he enters the frame. A lecherous man, Happy is not above paying the maid for sex and ogling girls half his age. This is all, of course, supposed to be funny. The 'heroes' fall for a neighborhood hottie (Celina Jaitely) and subject the viewers to more 'gags' as they fall over each other trying to 'patao' her.

Enter Gulshan Grover, in a strange costume and named Soprano, who profoundly speaks to the mirror in bad English, and keeps portraits of Osama Bin Laden and Hitler as inspirational tools. He is in the 'business' of trading girls to foreign countries (yes, women really get the deal in Tijori's films. They are either kidnapped, molested or being pataoed, when not being referred to as 'items').

While Himesh Reshammiya appears and disappears without warning, the three save Celina from the kidnappers and get entangled with Soprano.

The villain has on his panel of advisors, Mogambo (I feel silly even as I write this), Gabbar Singh and Shakaal, while in the dhishum-dhishum climax scene, the three heroes dress up as Mangal Pandey, Salman Khan from Tere Naam, and 'Anthony' from Amar Akbar Anthony. Sigh, we get it, he's trying to make it spoofy. If only it were that easy. The film ends up looking like a bad fancy dress competition.

Predictably, even the 'items' -- Celina and Kim Sharma (one of whom turns out to be an undercover cop), bash up the baddies, and all's well even before anything begins. The man behind the 'sting operation' to nail Soprano is, by the way, a cop played by Shakti Kapoor, in a bizarrely uninspired casting decision.

The dialogue is cheap, regressive and completely lacking in wit. The three protagonists are repeatedly called 'defective pieces'. Eve-teasing too is supposed to be fun, as Dick takes advantage of his blindness to grope women. Other "comic" bits include at least a hundred jokes on condoms, and then there's the mandatory Bobby Darling cameo.

Interestingly, the parts that are serious actually end up being comical. Like the Hollywood-inspired scene where Soprano plays with the globe: now those graphics are certainly worth a chuckle. Towards the end, Shakti Kapoor talks directly to you, the audience, and requests you not to leave as the film is not yet over.

The cinematography and production values are unbelievably archaic. Himesh Reshammiya provides a few hummable numbers, unimaginatively filmed. Dino Morea and Anuj Sawhney put in spirited performances, while Jimmy Shergill, who has proven himself in films like Haasil and Yahaan, seems a bit lost. Kim Sharma is likeable as the motormouth fisherwoman, however inconceivable her character may be, and Celina's toned stomach and pout do their job.

In a recent interview, Tijori called the film a comedy of errors. Unfortunately, this film has more errors than comedy.

Rediff rating:

Since Deepak Tijori honestly calls his own film Tom, Dick and Harry "mindless", why argue with him?
Mindless comedies sometimes do work, but this one's juvenile, vulgar and most unfunny. One of the easiest ways to ruin a comedy is to beg for laughs, like this film does - look at the caricature villain (Gulshan Grover looking uncannily like a local Page 3 denizen), and the three handicapped heroes, who are referred to as "defective pieces", the condom and gay gags. What kind of film - whether it has a mind or not - looks at trafficking of women as a joke!
Tom (Dino Morea) is deaf, Dick (Anuuj Sawhney - best of the lot) is blind and Harry (Jimmy Shergill) is mute. They live in a sex-starved Sardar's (Rakesh Bedi) home as paying guests and drool over their neighbour Celina (Jaitley) as if they have never seen a female in their lives. The half-dressed fisherwoman (Kim Sharma) completes the menagerie.
The villain Soprano (Grover), runs a female smuggling racket, and aspires to be the worst 'bad man' ever - for comparison he has Mogambo, Shakal and Gabbar Singh! The cops (mainly Shakti Kapoor) can't trace the people who kidnap girls in large numbers, though they drive around in a conspicuous car.
The three heroes rescue Celina from the kidnappers and for some reason are asked to describe the criminals, and for the three of them communication means a complicated dance of signs and lip-reading, when it would be easier to write things down. Also, Celina has seen the kidnappers too, why can't she describe them to the cops? At one point, the three mistakenly deliver Celina to the villain's den and then rush to rescue her.
Logic is obviously not this film's strong point, but then neither is anything else - except two very good Himesh Reshammiya songs (Tanha jiya and Jhoom) forced into the narrative. Quite a few gags are lifted from a recent play, Teen Bandar Resort Ke Andar, which also had disabled protagonists.

dis is not abt TDH ...its another artical abt himeshji but sumthing else ..

Tapping to the beats
While remix and retro tracks are passe, it is house and pure Bollywood music which is quite a rage these days with Pune's nightbirds.
Vandana Kalra
Strains of retro interspersed with bhangra beats and remixes may have been the order of the day in night clubs till a few months back, but the scene is just the opposite right now! Pune's junta is fast moving from remixes to pure Bollywood to electronica and house music. "We are certainly becoming more educated in terms of international numbers and the crowd is gradually coming out of the shell to explore different beats," says DJ Agnel, who plays at Scream, Hotel Le Meridien. So, while remixes belonging to the Kaliyon Ka Chaman league dominated the console till last year, now the tracks are slowing moving towards the hipper Gosolina by Daddy Yankee and Turn Me On by Kevin Little. As an avid clubber and disc enthusiast Vikram Sethi, a B Com student, says, "What attracts dance buffs to these numbers is the fact that they are fast-paced and one tends to instantaneously move to these. While the remixes were fun, they did become a bit repetitive... at the end of the day, old tracks were just lifted and the same beats were put on them , they were a bore."

But that does not mean that everything Indian is out of sync. In fact remixes are very much a part of disc music, but it is the original remixes which are wooing the crowd. Confused? Well, DJ Piyush, who plays at Not Just Jazz By The Bay and Aamby Valley explains, "Nowadays every Bollywood film album comes with a remixed kind of a track —Dus Bahane, Ashique Banaya, Woh Lamhe —it is these that are gaining popularity." Another name that is creating waves in the discs is Himesh Reshammiya. "His tracks are undisputedly a hit and they instantly make your feet tap," says model Viraf Patel, revealing that his current favourites are Aashiqui Me Meri from 36 China Town and the remixed version of Fanaa's Chand Sifarish by DJ Aqeel. But at the end of the day, it is still the venue and the crowd which matters most. As DJ Yusuf Kapasi says, "One can only decide the tracks after gauging the audience. Every set of people has unique likings and a DJ simply caters to that." About the moves that can match the hits? Agnel recommends, "Just flow with the music and a free hand is most comfy." Guess it's time to hit the dance floor!

1. Burn it up - R Kelly
2. Aashiqui mein meri - Himesh Reshammiya
3. Hips don't lie - Shakira
4. Love Generation - Bob Sinclair
5. Mohe Rang De Basanti - Rang de Basanti
