Kartik Aaryan's movie is a one-man show
enjoyed himself much in each scene. He makes sure we forget the original as he starts a celebration of pure silliness.
The 1980s were a major theme in Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo's original Telugu translation.
Rohit Dhawan, the writer-director, maintains the flavour and intensity of the original, giving Kartik Aaryan plenty of room to improvise.
Kartik creates an universe resembling that of his father in a grand setting with a stairway in the centre that seems to ascend into the sky.
Rajpal Yadav and Ali Asgar, two comics, perform their crude sketches before they leave.
