‘Freaky Ali’ movie review: A Nawazuddin Siddiqui film all the way

Cast: Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Arbaaz Khan, Jas Arora, Amy Jackson

Director: Sohail Khan

Rating: 2/5

Actor-Director Sohail Khan brings you a light-hearted drama, which might entertain you in bits and pieces.

The story revolves around Ali (Nawazuddin Siddiqui), an undergarment seller and Maqsood (Arbaaz Khan), a rowdy debt collector. The two have big plans to become rich. Ali’s life changes in the blink of an eye when he realises that he plays golf really well and starts practicing it with the help of Kishenlal (Asif Basra). He is soon joined by Megha(Amy Jackson) who manages his work plan for him. Destiny lands him in front of Vikram Rathod the undefeated champion from five years who challenges him for a bout of Golf.

Will Ali be able to defeat Vikram? Will he be able to win the love of his manager Megha? All this is and many more questions will be answered in ‘Freaky Ali’.

Nawazuddin Siddiqui effortlessly carries the film on his shoulder, this being his first solo hero movie he has proved that he is a winner throughout. Amy Jackson doesn’t have much to perform in this movie but has done an okayish job. Arbaaz Khan as Maqsood is truly good. Jas Arora as Vikram Rathod is convincing. The rest of the cast Nikitin Dheer, Paresh Ganatra and Jackie Shroff have been aptly cast.

Sohail Khan known for his films such as ‘Auzaar’, ‘Hello Brother’ that catered to mass appeal has pulled in all plugs for ‘Freaky Ali’ in the form of slapstick and situational comedy. Along with his co-writer Raaj Shandaliya, he has aptly narrated a story of an underdog. Cinematographer Mahesh Limaye has done a good job of showing the life in slums. Music by Sajid-Wajid is just passable. The film entertains with its simplicity.

Watch it for Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Arbaaz Khan.
