‘YEH TOH TWO MUCH HO GAYA’ – Movie Review by G9 Divya Solgama
It’s often seen that whenever a movie becomes hit, it not only helps the people related to that movie, but also benefits everyone related to some smaller actor from that film. Though, this has been happening since few decades but in recent times we have witnessed such incidents in case of actors like Arshad Warsi, Sharman Joshi, Shreyas Talpade, Irrfan Khan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Randeep Hooda and many more. The small producers of the movies starring these actors find it bit tough to release their small film. But the moment one of actors big budget film or multi-starrer film hits the bull eye at the box office, these producers instantly release their film which has been rotting in the cans. The latest to join this list is of Jimmy Shergill, who was highly appreciated for his performance in recently released film ‘Happy Bhag Jayegi’. It happened in past with him and even now one can see the history getting repeated as based on his recent success, a smaller film ‘Yeh Toh Two Much Ho Gaya’ starring Jimmy finds its way to the silver screen. So let’s find out whether ‘Yeh Toh Two Much Ho Gaya’ will do proper justice to the caliber and box-office position of Jimmy or might end up being a weak product trying only to cash in over the actors recent popularity.
‘Yeh Toh Two Much Ho Gaya’ is a story of Mann (Jimmy Shergill), residing in Thailand with his girlfriend Tina (Bruna Abdullah). Tina gets teased by Ricky due to which Mann beats him black and blue. Ricky is the younger brother of local don MAC (Arbaaz Khan), who swears to find Mann and hand it over to his brother. On the other end, Mann’s twin brother Mohan (Jimmy Sherfill) is residing in a small village and is in love with Mina (Pooja Chopra). Mina’s brother Chaudhari (Murli Sharma) is against the marriage of Mohan and Tina, thus he decides to set Mohan in a trap. Mann and Mohan’s mother (Zarina Wahab), keeps missing Mann due to which Mohan decides to find Mann and get him home. Maan is being chased by MAC’s goons thus he decides to hide out for a while in his village. Both the brothers cross each other’s path and what happens next is what the entire film is all about.
The story idea is quite similar to all those lost and found type of twin brothers’ stories we used to see in the 70’s, 80s and the 90’s era. It has the flavor of all those double role films of Jeetendra, Govinda and Mithun Chakroborty. The movie has been presented in bit outdated manner. The fight scenes will remind you of the Madras style of action, whereas the humour is silly and slapstick. Though, few scenes of Jimmy and Vijay Patkar are enjoyable. The screenplay is predictable and keeps going on a snail pace. The interval part is one of the key scene of the film where the makers dare to show two planes (flying on a same altitude) crossing each other. The second half is full of many unwanted tracks and drags to the fullest. The finale part is hurried and the last scene has been shown like how all the double role based films. Technically, the movie has been presented in a decent manner and makes the movie look viewable. Editing is bit lethargic.
The songs are forcefully inserted at regular intervals. While most of them fail to make their mark, songs like ‘Meri Aawargi’ and ‘Tu Maula Hai’ are melodious. The item song was worst among all others.
We were told that the director Anwer Khan used to assist the legendary director Manmohan Desai and thus this movie is colourfull and has the identical twin brother’s track. He narrates the story in decent manner but fails to enhance it to the second level. The movie needed a bit sharp editing and a better screenplay.
Jimmy Shergill is a fantastic actor and out here also he tries his level best to do justice to it. Sadly, he is let down by the weak script. Arbaaz Khan is strictly average as one does miss the devilish character of his. Pooja Chopra looks cute but fails to do justice to her character of a village girl. Bruna Abdullah, Murli Sharma, Zarina Wahab and Maushmi Udeshi are wasted as per their caliber. Vijay Patkar was hilarious.
So on an overall basis, ‘Yeh Toh Two Much Ho Gaya’ has few entertaining moments besides that, it is just a double trouble full of predictable scenes and out dated story style. The movie is released only to feast in over the success of Jimmy Shergill.
Rating – 1.5/5 (Review Source – Bollywood Times)
