APRIL MOVIE THON DAY 4: Fool N Final (2006)

The tagline of this movie, “Stealing stones and breaking bones,” should tell you all you need to know, as this is the Indian Hindi-language remake of Snatch and yes, such a thing is possible.

Director Firoz Nadiadwala some very loose remakes of other movies like Phir Hera Pheri being based on another Guy Ritchie movie Lock Stock and Two Smoking BarrelsWelcome Loosely inspired by Mickey Blue Eyes, Awara Paagal Deewana ripping off The Whole Nine Yards and Deewane Huge Paagal remixing There’s Something About Mary.

Career criminal Raja (Shahid Kapoor), his lover Tina (Ayesha Takia) and her uncle Choubey (Paresh Rawal) are jewel thieves when Raja isn’t also living the life of Rahul, who had been killed in an accident. However, a gangster named Moscow Chikna (Arbaaz Khan) wants to chop off Choubey’s arms. So they abduct Rocky (Chunkey Pandey), who has stolen an even bigger diamond, only to earn the wrath of his uncle Choski (Gulshan Grover), who hires Gunmaster G9 (Jackie Shroff) to cut their throats if they don’t give him back his nephew.

At some point, everyone dresses like Superman, Spider-Man, Batman and Wonder Woman, which is where the poster comes from, and then Mike Tyson shows up in the credits like this is one of the Hangover movies. Huh?

This did horribly with critics and audiences. That said, it’s worth a curiosity look on Tubi.
