The screenplay just sucked! I had high expectations when I saw the poster and actor's names, but it was just a huge disappointment. I hated Ritesh as the hero, because he looked like a real whimp and he couldn't act at all. Jacqueline Fernandes was ok, but all she did was smile around throughout the whole movie. Amitabh Bachchan as the genius sucked badly. His make up sucked, because he looked scary with it and his jokes and just character were bad.
It's a pity that Aladin has beautiful effects and all, but fails to deliver you a good story.
--> Too many songs are forced in the script which is hard to get over.
--> Amitabh Bachchan & Sanjay Dutt's characters (respectively genie Genius & Ringmaster) are penned over-dramatically.
--> Ridiculous screenplay.
I don't mind the use of wild imaginations, especially when it comes to this kind of movie, but it's the way it's executed that makes it so bad. The only department where the movie scores fair enough is its visual effects. Oh yeah, just in case if it's any consolation, the movie does have 2-4 lol moments.
Riteish Deshmukh & Saahil Khan give a relatively better performance than the rest of the cast. Jaqueline Fernandes is okay. Amitabh Bachchan disappoints big time. Sanjay Dutt is mechanical. I wonder why they accept such roles in the first place..... Oh wait, I guess I know.
It'd have been better had they compiled the out-of-the-place songs (that is, all songs) & released this as an album than as a movie. But then again, the songs weren't anything pleasing to ears either.
Other than Amithab, rest of the crew are loke robots. even amithab & sajey must think twice b4 they get on with such a script
Main error in the movie is the character Ginious is being amithab & the story is concentrated around him its more like a one man show,except for sanjey's apperance
next error is trying to create a greek city in & inhabiting with indial people where does those exist??
imagination must be creative, also the director & producers must take extra care when doing a recration of a well known story
My recommondation dont watch the movie
