Story: Akhil Lokhande, illegitimate son of a Bangkok billionaire, discovers that his inheritance has been passed on to a dog: Entertainment. And there are also other bad guys playing dogs.
Review: Entertainment tells how a certain Najayaz Aulad (illegitimate son), abbreviated to DNA in the film, comes across the fact that he is actually a poor boy from Mumbai born to a Bangkok billionaire. His father, Pannalal Johri (Dalip Tahil in a crown frame on the wall), bequeathed his fortune to his Entertainment pet dog (Junior) because he could not find his real son, Akhil Lokhande (Akshay Kumar), during his lifetime.
After a romantic interlude with his girlfriend Saakshi (Tamannaah) in Mumbai, Akhil flies to Bangkok. He and his best friend Jugnu (Krushna, good comic timing) make big plans to get rid of the dog that stands between him and his billions.
But the dog is not a fool. Man and beast find ways to outdo each other, and when they can’t kill each other, they associate. A new pair of villains, Prakash Raj and Sonu Sood, called Karan-Arjun (there are many clichés) is presented here. They too aspire to the same heap of riches. Akhil and Entertainment must now make the most of the bad guys.
The directors Sajid-Farhad, who have the dubious honor of having written Bollywood blockbusters like the Golmaal series, Dhamaal and Housefull 2, and who somewhat saved themselves with the Singham films, could have saved their first directing effort by keeping it tight despite the clichés.
However, because the jokes are repetitive, moments of LOL (laughing out loud) are rare. Dialogues featuring Bollywood actors and directors’ names like “I so Rajani-can’t” provoke bursts of laughter. But for the most part, the humor is for the child in you.
Akshay Kumar is in great shape. After directing several masala films, he has become a khiladi. His relationship with the dog (especially in the comic scenes) has these “so cute” moments. The golden retriever is not a wonderful actor but his eyes can melt your heart.
