Go Goa Gone Friday Opening Update

Go Goa Gone is released today at the box office. Opening of the film is slow as far as Morning shows are concerned. GGG has registered an opening of 20-30% all India in the Morning shows on Friday. Occupancy is in the same range for Delhi and Mumbai. Even Gurgaon which collects well in Friday is also slow with occupancies of 25% around. Film performance at the box office will be more depended on the content then star power. If reports of the film is positive then expect GGG to show good growth through the weekend.

Go Goa Gone stars Saif Ali Khan, Kunal Khemu, Vir Das in lead roles. Although Saif Ali Khan role is of extended guest appearance in the film. Also, GGG has to fight it out with Shootout At Wadala which will still have good steam left in theaters as it is just into the second week. Moreover it has to again fight it out with Aashiqui 2 which is on a dream run right now.

Review: Go Goa Gone has effervescent and effortless performances

Friday, May 10, 2013, 12:55 IST | Place: Mumbai | Agency: DNA

The dialogue is urban, contemporary and very current. The writers definitely have a pulse on what's hot at the moment and create the right moments between their characters.

Film: Go Goa Gone
Cast: Saif Ali Khan, Kunal Khemu, Vir Das, Puja Gupta, Anand Tiwari
Director: Raj Nidimoru and  Krishna DK
Rating: ***1/2

Zombies have taken over pop culture. Vampires and spirits are not popular anymore. Be it TV shows (The Walking Dead)or motion pictures (World War Z), the lifeless creatures are everywhere. Bollywood joins the rank, with a commercial masala potboiler set in Goa using zombies as their central theme.

Hardik (Kunal), Luv (Vir) and Bunny (Anand) are three friends who land up in Goa to get away from the humdrum  of their mediocre lives. Little do they know what this trip has in store for them.

After attending a rave party where luminous red pills turn every living person into a zombie, they are stranded on an island full of the walking dead. Things take an interesting turn when they bump into Russian zombie killer Boris (Saif) who ends up being one of the zaniest characters of recent times.

There is ample blood, gore, stabbing, shooting, brains being blown up, arms amputated, to make you squirm if you aren't familiar with the genre. But all of this is presented in a fun, satirical format that never takes itself too seriously. Even though these characters are in a life threatening scenario, you will find yourself laughing at their sorry state.

Raj Nidimoru and  Krishna DK do a fantastic job with the visuals and styling very frame with enough colour and cheekiness to take on their audience by the horns and engage them from the very beginning. The pace is solid and rarely falters, except towards the sketchy climax which is the films biggest flaw.

Zombies are all about their walk. Yes, the tissue exposing face and lifeless eyes are important, but it's their signature move that makes them stand out from their evil counterparts. Kudos to the directors for going the extra mile and making every single actor in the frame master that walk.

The dialogue is urban, contemporary and very current. The writers definitely have a pulse on what's hot at the moment and create the right moments between their characters.

Vir, Kunal and Anand are distinctly different from each other, and that is what keeps you interested till the very end.  Performances are effervescent and effortless. Kunal Khemu is at home playing the flirtatious Hardik whose 'Jai Hind' salute to his God will stay with you even after the film ends. There's no denying his on screen charm, but what impresses is his perfect timing and jugalbandi with his co-star Vir Das who is a professional stand up artist.

Puja Gupta has some witty one liners and she goes all out to prove their more to her than her accentuated figure. Anand Tiwari and Vir Das play their parts like they stage actors who know when to drop those punches. It is a stellar ensemble, but the scene stealer is Saif Ali Khan who will have you in splits with his Boris act. Even when the accent and the props wear out, Saif never stops delivering the goods. The soundtrack blends is in sync with the mood of the film. Full marks to the make up artists for giving the zombies their signature look.

Only if the second half and especially the climax had been better fleshed out, the film would have been exceptional. Right in the middle, you get that feeling in your gut, "how will they wrap up this freak show?", and it isn't an easy task giving all that madness some method.

Go Goa Gone is a drug that takes you on that high, but wears off soon enough before you start tripping.

Go Goa Gone Hopeful But GIPPI Struggles 


Both new Bollywood releases "Go Goa Gone" and "Gippi" opened to below average response from respective expectations. Films need to grow from here on in order to have any hope at box office.. 



"Go Goa Gone" opened to 20-25% occupancy but going by the response film will grow in urban and high end multiplexes for sure by evening. But due to too niche appeal, film will grow only in limited areas. Film needs to show huge jump in order to make a mark. Film might touch 5 cr nett on opening day at best.



Other release "Gippi" is almost non starter and needs huge appreciation in order to even register. If film collects in excess of 1 cr nett on opening day, it will be a great result. 



Other releases like "Four Two Ka One" is washout.

Go Goa Gone: Opens To An Average Occupancy | Box Office

This week's new release Go Goa Gone has opened to an average occupancy at the Domestic Box Office today. Being a complete multiplex flick, this zom-com had approx 30-35% occupancy in Metros and other major centres across the country. As expected, the single screens in the remote areas are getting a dull response.

The key markets for the film that are doing better business are Mumbai, Bangalore, Delhi, Kolkata, Pune and rest of the metro cities. The film is not shining in Punjab, Rajasthan and UP circuits.

Nevertheless, Go Goa Gone has received excellent reviews from the critics, plus the word of mouth publicity is positive, what with the social networking sites flooding with all praises for the flick! The movie is sure to pick up in the evening shows and keeping the young Indians in mind as the target audience, Go Goa Gone will definitely do better on the weekend.

Movie Talkies - Funny, Wacky, Cheeky!

Rating - 4/5
By Jaidev Hemmady, MovieTalkies.com, 10 May 2013
Review

Go Goa Gone Movie Review-In Short:
Three friends, a woman and a Russian mobster find themselves on an island infested by zombies after a wild rave party...

Go Goa Gone Movie Review-Verdict:
One of the craziest and wackiest comedies to have hit the screens in recent times, the movie is a must watch!

Go Goa Gone Movie Review-Story Plot:
Luv (Vir Das), Hardik (Kunal Kemmu) and Bunny (Anand Tiwari) are three friends, who stay and work together in Mumbai. However, while Bunny is a typical 'good boy', the other two are dope-heads and slackers.

When Luv gets unceremoniously dumped by his girlfriend and Hardik ends up jeopardizing his job by getting caught smoking a joint in the office, the duo decide to head out of the city for a break. When Bunny announces that he has to go to Goa on the company's buck for an important official presentation, the two friends gleefully latch onto him at the prospect of having a good time.

However, Goa is not just a place for beaches, beer and bikinis-as the trio discover after a wild rave party organised by the Russian Mob on an island. After a night of debauchery, the three friends and Luna (Puja Gupta), a woman who tells them about the party, find themselves trapped on the island, which is now infested by an army of zombies. However, all hopes are not lost and they find a saviour in the form of Russian mobster Boris (Saif Ali Khan).

Now, all they have to do is find their boat and get the hell out of that island...

Go Goa Gone Movie Review-Performances:
Kunal Kemmu and Vir Das have proved their talent at comedy in their previous films and when these two men come together, it's an absolute riot! Their funny dialogues, their comic timing and mannerisms will make you laugh till your sides hurt. Anand Tiwai as Bunny too holds his own as far as the comic quotient is concerned. Puja Gupta looks great on the screen, but doesn't get too much to do. However, to be fair to her, she puts in a decent effort. Saif as Boris the Russian mobster too elicits quite a few chuckles with his performance as the foul-mouthed killer, though it is Das and Kemmu (especially the latter), who take away the cake.

Go Goa Gone Movie Review-Direction:
Like mentioned earlier, Go Goa Gone is one of the wackiest comedies to have come after a long time. Director duo Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK have effectively infused the zombie genre with cheeky comedy to present a totally fun ride. The humour is very contemporary and effortless and the dialogues are funny and witty. However, the film is not just a barrel of laughs and there are moments in the film, (especially during the scenes when the zombies are chasing the good guys) that you might find yourself on the edge of the seat, urging the protagonists to run faster, for crissakes!!

On the flip side (and every film has one), the last few minutes of the film are somewhat 'senti' and preachy, but then, the rest of the movie is so enjoyable that one does not have the heart to frown at a few minutes of lecturebaazi at the end.

Go Goa Gone Movie Review-Music:
The music is quite yuppy and upbeat and the numbers like Khoon choos le, slowly slowly andBabaji ki booti are sure to be welcomed with open arms by the audience.

Go Goa Gone Movie Review-Final Word:
This crazy, wacky trip is totally worth it...and then some!
