MSG: The Messenger Movie Review
REVIEW THIS MOVIEWATCH TRAILER
A parallel track revolves around the loud extras, who conspire to kill him. A buffed-up Mike (poor man’s Vin Diesel) is on a mission to assassinate the guru. But can he kill the rockstar with an angelic smile, curly arm hair and Sehwag-esque voice, who does push-ups atop two parallel running trucks (move over Ajay Devgn), flies his bike over a swimming pool while strumming the guitar, turn weapons into rose petals et al?
In case you missed the first two hours of the film, pitaji ensures you don’t miss out on it by repeating the gyaan in the climax. Isn’t he just like the song dedicated to him? ‘Papa the geerate (read great)’. Nonetheless, the film is a treat for this guru’s fans since he appears practically in every scene.
PS: The one star is strictly for babaji’s intriguing choice of outfits. A multi-coloured crochet two-piece (tight tees and knee-length pants) takes the cake.
