The Hangover is a story of four guys who head to LA for a drugs-sex-rock n roll romp a day before one of the friends is getting married. They wake up the next morning to find a Tiger in the bathroom, a baby in the closet.. one of the friends has a missing tooth and the groom-to-be is nowhere to be found ! Needless to say.. none of the guys has an inkling to what transpired the night before. With a handful of clues.. they set out to put together the events of a night that never seem to have happened !!
The best part about The Hangover is it is so effortless. The actors fit into their roles seamlessly. The characters are so well etched that you can instantly relate to them. The jokes are smart.. not the ones that leave you looking for meaning but the ones that make you go ohh-shit-why-didn’t-i-think-of-it ! The comedy is on a roll ! There isn’t a single scene which doesn’t leave you smirking atleast. It gets a little drudged in bits.. but because the pace is so quick, it leaves you with no time to get bored. All in all.. The IDEAL weekend flick to watch with a couple of buddies.
It is little gems like these that make me say Bollywood needs to upgrade BIG TIME ! And not until we see such films do we realize what we are missing on.. Pure Unadulterated Fun- minus the rona dhona and love angles. (Unnecessary to say the least !)
The film also boasts of little scenes which are nothing short of Priceless ! Like the Wedding scene. It is absolutely hilarious. Or the one in which Mr Chow comes out of the car trunk and starts beating the friends. A special mention for Ken Jeong who plays Mr. Chow. You are unlikely to come across a funnier Chinese Gay Don. He is A D O R A B L E.
The Hangover is THE coolest flick this season. Miss it at your own risk..
