No Entry, Welcome, Singh Is King – three blockbusters in a row and all three movies shared the same director – Anees Bazmee. Yes, Anees Bazmee the man behind several hit movies as a story writer and also as a director comes out with his latest comical outing ‘No Problem’.
No Problem unlike his earlier outings is a non-starter from the word go. Anees Bazmee movies are always high on laughter quotient and although they are mindless comedies they always are highly enjoyable. However ‘No Problem’ doesn’t live upto the expectations and is a total disaster for the viewer.
The story is about Yash [Sanjay Dutt] and Raj [Akshaye Khanna] who are small-time crooks and childhood buddies. Raj wants to lead an honest life, but Yash always manages to do something that jeopardizes Raj’s chances of turning over a new leaf. When Yash robs the First Village Bank, the innocent bank manager, Zandulal [Paresh Rawal], also falls under suspicion, just because he had sheltered Yash and Raj under his roof.
In Durban, Arjun [Anil Kapoor] is a bungling cop, married to Kajal [Sushmita Sen], the daughter of the Commissioner of Police [Shakti Kapoor]. Kajal has a split personality – one moment she’s a loving wife and mother, who, for 10 minutes every day, transforms into a terrifying maniac intent on murdering her husband.
Diamonds worth millions have been stolen from the International Diamond Centre by the gang lead by Marcos [Suniel Shetty]. Arjun is as determined to find these ruthless robbers, as Zandulal is to find the two crooks who robbed his bank. Yash and Raj try to avoid Zandulal, who does not realize that they are his neighbours.
Meanwhile, Raj falls in love with Sanjana [Kangna Ranaut], Kajal’s younger sister. But just before the engagement, Zandulal threatens to expose Yash and Raj unless they return the money they stole from his bank. Cornered, Raj and Yash agree to commit one last robbery. They rob a minister’s house, minutes before Marcos arrives. The minister is tortured and killed, because Marcos cannot find the stolen diamonds.
Now starts a game of hide and seek, as Arjun goes after Yash and Raj, the prime suspects in the minister’s murder and Marcos also hunts them down because he’s figured out that they have the diamonds. Yash and Raj must prove their innocence and also somehow or the other pay back Zandulal.
The movie is entertaining in bits and parts and among the principle characters Sanjay Dutt does a decent job. Kangana and Sushmita are plainly wasted whereas Akshaye, Suniel Shetty and Anil Kapoor doesn’t get much scope to showcase their acting chops.
On the whole NO PROBLEM will pose a big PROBLEM to its investors as the box office results for this movie seems to be bleak. Another disaster in the making.
