There is good news for the makers of 'Rocky'. Pirated DVDs of this film will not be a problem, because even pirates would know better than to make copies of this movies.
After delivering a huge flop and starring in an average grosser in Bollywood, Mahaakshay Chakraborty aka Mimoh, son of Mithun Chakraborty, is trying his hands at Bengali films but he has stiff competition from the already established stars and the ongoing IPL. The distributors also don’t seem to be too sure of him and thus, not too many multiplexes in the city are showing this film.
What’s it about?
A master of disguise and ruffian from Mumbai Rocky (Mimoh) escapes to Kashmir and meets his love interest Nandini (Pooja Bose). He learns that Nandini has a boyfriend Avik, who is a minister’s son. But viewers, do not worry. Avik has a lot of skeletons in his cupboard, which Rocky takes out and thus Nandini walks out on Avik and falls for Rocky. Many unnecessary twists and turns follow and good on you if you have the patience to sit through the entire performance.
Mimoh is good with his action and dance sequences. Pooja has done a far better job in the acting department.
Mimoh is launched... again. This time in a Bengali film. But he needs to sit down and give serious thought to whether he really wants to make a career in acting. Judging by the way he has performed, it looks like papa Mithun has pushed him into film world. His deadpan expression would shame the furniture. His dialogue delivery too is pathetic.
This story has been done and redone to death. Calling the cheesy one-liners ridiculous would be a gross understatement. Some of the grammatically incorrect English dialogues are also hilarious. The songs leave no impression whatsoever and the editing jerks stick out like a sore thumb.
Last but not least, unless a film is strong in all the departments, it is not advisable to release it at a time when IPL is in a full swing.
What to do?
Even KKR's appalling performance is better than being in a theatre watching 'Rocky'.

"You remind me of Shabana Azmi," guffaws our don't-give-a-damn hero to the social activist heroine. In the first-half they clash over idlis, ideologies and idle chatter. Mismatched as they are, and we are reminded twice that she is older, Kareena Kapoor-Khan and Imran Khan trudge along cutely till mid-point after which the narrative shuffles noisily into a village in Gujarat where it all falls apart.
"Last Vegas" is a funny, heartwarming and a touching buddy film about ageing and male bonding whose premise is so very much like the 2009 released film "The Hangover". But unlike in "The Hangover", these four buddies are geriatrics who jam up after 58 years of separation.
