The Film

Aladin is a fantasy film that is pregnant with promise of an interesting screen fare but finally delivers a damp squib.

The Synopsis

There is an imaginary city called Khwaish where Aladin Chatterjee (Riteish Deshmukh), an orphan, lives a miserable life. He is constantly harassed and haraunged by Kasim (Sahil Khan) and his troupe of ruffians. His life takes a turn after meeting Jasmine (Jacqueline Fernandez) who gives him a magic lamp out of which comes the wish granting genie named Genius (Amitabh Bachchan). Before the three wishes of Aladin are granted by genie Genius, the ex-genie Ringmaster (Sanjay Dutt) arrives and is bent upon liquidating Aladin.

Will genie Genius prevent ex-genie Ringmaster from killing Aladin? Will the three wishes of Aladin be granted? Why does the Ringmaster wants to kill Aladin? The answers to these questions take the film to a predictable climax.

The Performances

Riteish Deshmukh gives a spirited performance and looks credible. Jacqueline Fernandez is all glamour and nothing else to do. Amitabh Bachchan and Sanjay Dutt are energetic but do not do justice because of ill-etched roles.

Ratna Pathak Shah, Victor Banerjee and Mita Vashisht have been given impactless cameos. Sahil Khan and Arif Zakaria are adequate in their roles. All others including the child artistes just go through their motions.

The Techniques

Sujoy Ghosh comes up with an illogical story which has further damaged the narration through a poorly written screenplay. All the visual special effects do not make any impression because of the average style of story telling. Many of the events and actions by the characters do not have any justification and the scenes appear like a heap of disconnected new pipes. The director should learn not to take the audience for granted.

Music by Vishal Dadlani and Shekhar Ravjiani has nothing to write about. Sirsha Ray’s cinematography is good. Sound design is not impressive.

The Verdict

Aladin, at the most, is amusing in parts but does not entertain you on the whole. May be some kids might be interested in the genie story. This movie is not for film buffs.

The Cast and Crew

Amitabh Bachchan, Sanjay Dutt, Ritesh Deshmukh, Jacqueline Fernandez, Saahil Khan, Victor Banerjee, Ratna Pathak, Meeta Vasisht, Joy Sengupta, Arif Zakaria, Siddharth Sharma, Master Shubhankar Atre, Master Ahan Desai, Master Dev Kanatawala, William Ong and others
