Sharafat Gayi Tel Lene

The biggest challenge in watching Sharafat Gayi Tel Lene begins from frame one. That challenge goes by the name of Zayed Khan - the second worst actor in the world (the worst would be Fardeen Khan). Thankfully the trailers prepare you for this challenge and it doesn't come as an unpleasant surprise. Thank God for small mercies.

But don't get your hopes too high because the attempt at direction is by a certain Gurmmeet Singh who is known for other disasters such as What the Fish and Warning.  So over and above the torture by Zayed Khan you have to sustain dialogues which make you pull your hair out strand by strand.  One of the most excruciatingly painful experiences in the world.

So a certain Prithvi Khurana (Zayed Khan) is your average ordinary everyday loser who lives in Mehrauli with his flat mate Sam (Ranvijay Singh). But our loser has a super hot girlfriend with no apparent explanation.  Megha (Tena Desae) works for the press in some way which hasn't been described or even defined for that matter.  On her 25th birthday our hero proposes marriage and accepts - Oh the atrocity!!!

Nevertheless, once you are over the shock of a hot woman saying yes to all loser, our loser hero hits the jackpot - or so it would seem for a few minutes.  A sum of 100 crores suddenly appears in his account. His joy is short-lived because a call from Dawood quickly follows. Our loser is recruited as a delivery boy for the most wanted man in this part of the world.

What is supposed to follow is a comedy of errors but it turns out to be an error in comedy (much worse than the previous line). But to be fair, other than the second worst actor in the world, the rest of the cast has performed really well - within the limitations of the script.

One can understand the desperation of Zayed Khan but why would talented actors like Tena Desae and Anupam Kher or even Ranvijay for that matter need to be part of a below par story is surprising.  Even the music is vastly forgettable.

At the end of the day SGTL is not worth watching even if someone were to pay you for it. The concept had weight but in the hands of an incompetent team, one could not have expected better I guess.  Switch channels if this is on cable. 1 on 10 to the decent performances by part of the cast.
