Freaky Ali – Movie Review

2.5 Stars (2.5 / 5)

A movie written and directed by Sohail Khan starring Nawazuddin Siddiqui (as Ali), Amy Jackson (as Megha) and Arbaaz Khan (as Maqsood) in leading roles. It is a sports oriented romantic comedy based on not so popular game in masses of India, Golf. Movie was very slow and boring in the beginning with an unwanted song which actually turns off the mood of audience who was expecting some serious acting from Nawazuddin Siddiqui film. Thank God but the movie gradually took the pace and Sohail Khan gave justice to his lead person Nawazuddin as per his capabilities.

As shown in trailer, movie is all about a poor guy from slums of Mumbai who was an under garment seller, later on worked for underworld. As luck favours him, one day Asif Basra (as Kishan Lal) realises the talent of Ali of hitting excellent shots with a golf club. He trains him and make him compete in national level golf tournament. The whole movie goes on this journey of golf and a rivalry with existing champion of the Golf Jas Arora (as Peter).

No doubt about the legend actor Nawazuddin, he was outstanding in the movie with his effortless acting and dialogue delivery. The beautiful Amy Jackson is there in a supporting role, maybe they casted as opposite role but I felt as a supporting role. She did what she has chosen for the movie. Arbaaz Khan as Ali’s friend an underworld person playing a major role in Ali’s life did justice to his role with good acting skills and performance. Huge applause to Asif Basra who was playing Caddy for Ali was outstanding in his role. Nikitin Dheer, Paresh Ganatra and Jackie Shroff (in cameo role) are there in comic roles featuring an underworld gang leading by Danger Bhai.

The lacking points in the movie as per my analysis are the initial 15 minutes of lagging story and the dramatic touch added in the climax as always happening in the very next Hindi movie.

Overall, it is a onetime watch to see the performance of Nawazuddin Siddiqui
