It’s juvenile, it’s all over the place and it’s the worst fraud that anyone of us can even imagine, well, I am talking about Fraud Saiyaan that has just hit the theatres.
Fraud Saiyaan is all about Bhola Prasad Tripathi (Arshad Warsi), a conman who is married to multiple women. He has as many as 12 wives across Lucknow, Varanasi and Allahabad. In a surprising turn of events, he meets Murari Lal Chaurasiya (Saurabh Shukla), the uncle of one of his wives, on a train to Varanasi and everything falls apart.
The film that goes on and on and by the time we are halfway into the film, you, as a viewer, are certain that you have been on a pointless journey so far. I am sure the next half of the film you will keep kicking yourself for coming into to watch this one. On My God!! This one is such a waste of time and money.
Set in Uttar Pradesh, the women characters in the movie are shown to be dumb. For instance, when two of his wives find out about him cheating, instead of confronting him and putting him behind the bars, they save him.
The film has two item numbers; one Ladies Paan and Chamma Chamma are two item numbers. Sadly, both add nothing to the narrative. We also have two hugely talented actors, Arshad Warsi and Saurabh Shukla, but sadly they are saddled with a lame script. While Arshad Warsi does try hard to pull the film, Saurabh Shukla looks totally disinterested. He is just there to do a job and for him, it ends there.
The script, if one can call that, is full of scenes that are put together, which do not make sense. For the makers, if this what they call funny, then I am sure I need to get my head examined as I did could not smile, even if I tried desperately. The direction by Sourabh Shrivastava is below average with no high points whatsoever, while the screenplay only makes the movie all the more unbearable to watch.
All in all, Fraud Saiyaan is one film that cannot be watched. I am even more disappointed with the fact that Arshad Warsi is in the film.
