Honestly,I wasn't expecting much from "The Shaukeens" but I never thought that it will have utterly boring ingredients for the most part.In India old aged people are not given much of a importance including and specially by the young guys.But making such a preposterous film would never give them any kind of appreciation and the desired respect.On one hand we are have a TV Series named " Satyamev Jayate" which talks about live-in relationship of the older people and the disrespect given to them by their own children. On the other hand we have something which is not even truly admiring.
We have three characters two of which are married and have a grandson but yet are interested in relationship. Their life is full of ridiculous incidents which hardly make any sense.Most of the songs are awful and unnecessary. Akshay Kumar is not good in a special appearance as himself.This appearance was absolutely unnecessary.This actor is expressing his concern about the scripts and the films he is working on.
The new girl in industry named Ahana (Lisa Haudon) whose character turns from a generous girl to dump mad Akshay fan is sad to watch after a while.It was really hard for me to tolerate this drama which hardly shows something really good.
Akshay Kumar is a bigger role than expected. I am not sure why he was conceived to do such kind of film.The message from the film is also not that good. Anupam Kher and Anu Kapoor seems to be shown intentionally overage. All of this looks stupid and obnoxious for the most part like one of the diadlogue from the film by Ahana.
