Let me begin with a conversation between Shroff and Nawaz

\n

N: Ek aadmi ko 30 din mein dance sikhaana hai

\n

S: kisko

\n

N: ( with priceless reluctance) mujhko

This entire premise of Nawaz trying to learn dance in 30 days as a concept , as a thought is so hilarious that it can bring the auditorium down!

\n

One more - I ' Intist' ( and then the supreme confidence on his face - he's challenged in English and meant I Insist )

\n

This reluctance and confidence can be achieved on screen by an actor of his caliber only !!

\n

Nawaz and Shroff match or bromance was fine talent aggravated with raw unbridled energy !

\n

That to me is the highlight of this masala pot pourri  - a movie of this genre is featuring after a gap of almost so many revenge , slice of life , Hatke ventures and was so looking forward for this musical feel good melodrama.

\n

When I saw the trailer I had the feeling of a:

\n
    \n
  • True blue commercial 
  • \n
  • Two worlds shall meet - Nawaz acting meets Shroff antics
  • \n
  • A girl kills Bromance
  • \n
  • Dance the Shroff way. All the way
  • \n
  • Musical melodrama with a dance backdrop
  • \n
  • Runs to a Potboiler climax
  • \n

So all the trappings of a 10-11 crore Friday

\n

Now the First day first show report - Word of Mouth - Hoi Polloi

\n

Does it pack enough punch and punchlines to warrant a family ticket ?

\n

Yeah We know Tiger can dance like there's no tomorrow but does he offer any new moves , any novelty in his steps ?

\n

Will Nawazuddin add to the fun and drama quotient knowing well that this class actor has his own territory of cinema to look after ?

\n

Will there be some chemistry between the lead boys?

\n

Will it be a hat trick for Sabbir and Tiger after hits like Heropanti and Baaghi ??

\n

Does it, will it , shall we watch it, blah , blah?

These are the questions associated with a Munna Michael kind of a title especially when the trailer has hinted on the fly by night storyline.

\n

 

\n

So let's start with the rough patches first 

\n
    \n
  1. Storyline - although nothing great still a tad unique - It gave away the thunder in the trailer itself - who so ever has seen the trailer would have fun predicting what next !
  2. \n
  3. Music and songs - although pleasing a few songs do get sewn well in the narrative - most don't and your head bows down to handphone.
  4. \n
  5. Screenplay could have been much more fun. Was good but the Wow antics were missing !
  6. \n
\n

 

\n

Gems :

\n
    \n
  1. Some truly funny moments which didn't require catchlines - the expressions and situations scored well !
  2. \n
  3. Dance is the third lead of the movie
  4. \n
  5. Heroine does well for his first movie - her vibrancy and promise reminds a bit of Deepika in OSO. Too early to comment though but the filly seems to be prepared for that long race.
  6. \n
  7. Tiger Shroff - his energy, parkour and self confidence stand out !
  8. \n
  9. Nawaz - whenever he is on screen he's the only one - u see an entirely different one this time albeit in a commercial potpourri- you come out with the question - How does he manage to be novel all the time ?
  10. \n
\n

 

\n

So Bollywood fans longing for a good feel good musical masala with doses of fun , dance and action are in for a treat.

\n

If you ask me it's definitely a ticket worth go for it !!

\n

3.5 stars

Munna Michael review from other sources

BollywoodHungama 2.5/5

On the whole, MUNNA MICHAEL has its moments but struggles due to weak writing. However, Tiger Shroff’s fans would be a happy lot as the actor rocks the show with his dance and action. At the box office, the film’s growth will depend on word of mouth.

If you’re in the mood to get rid of the monsoon blues with the foot-tapping ding dang, ding dang ditty, you should get introduced to Munna Michael; he’s not making breaking any new ground, but his moves are certainly infectious.

NowRunning.com 2/5

Tiger Shroff is getting better with every film, but he does not need a dramatic pause in that one signature dialogue he gets to say in every movie. Thankfully there is no 'Hero' flute music playing as he makes an entry into every scene. Small mercies. Nawazuddin Siddiqui does an awesome imitation of Christopher Walken doing the dance to Fatboy Slim when he finally tries to persuade the girl to become his. That, and the rest of his role earn this film the stars.
