Aladin - Movie Review

Cast :: Amitabh Bachchan, Sanjay Dutt, Ritesh Deshmukh, Juhi Chawla, Sameera Reddy, Jackie Fernandez, Jacqueline Fernandez.

Aladin is a contemporary take on the classic fairy tale and boasts of a visual scale never seen before on Indian screen. The story is contemporary but set in a fantasy world of make believe.

Aladin Chatterjee (Riteish Deshmukh) lives in the city of Khwaish, an orphan who has been bullied since childhood by Kasim and his gang. But his life changes when Jasmine (Jacqueline Fernandez) gives him a magic lamp- because it lets loose the genie Genius (Amitabh Bachchan).

Desperate to grant him 3 wishes and seek the end of his contract with the Magic Lamp, the rock-star Genius makes Aladin's life difficult until the real threat looms on the horizon: the ex-genie Ringmaster (Sanjay Dutt). Why does Ringmaster want to kill Aladin? What is the dark secret about Aladin's past that Genius is carrying? And what is Aladin's destiny? Watch online Movie Trailer free Aladin Hindi Bollywood Indian film.The film Directed by Sujoy Ghosh.

Aladin, spelled without the more familiar double D, too suffers a worse fate what with kids bullying him into rubbing lamps. Turns out it wasn't such a bad idea after all when Aladin truly rubs one and pop comes a wish-granting genie, Genius (Amitabh Bachcan). Three good-as-new wishes would end in a happily-ever-after, you'd think?

'Aladin' also marks the debut of Sri Lankan beauty Jacqueline Fernandez who is paired opposite Riteish.

Directed by Sujoy Ghosh, Aladin is the story of a boy who faces ridicule at every stage of his life because he shares his name with the protagonist of the famous fairy-tale. In the film, Aladin is a shy, young man, constantly bullied by a certain gang of boys in his college. He secretly loves his classmate Jasmine (Jacqueline) but never musters the courage to tell her about it

One day, through a twist of fate, the incredible ‘Genius’ (Genie) lands up in his life and all hell breaks loose for Aladin! That genie refuses to leave Aladin alone and follows him everywhere, unwilling to leave without granting him 3 wishes!

But there is another side... an ultra-cool and uber-evil magician Ringmaster is using a magic mirror to Google our Aladin. And he wants to kill Aladin, take back the lamp and reclaim his powers (for even Ringmaster was once a genie)…
As Aladin’s 3 wishes run out and the Ringmaster closes in on him, the stage is set for an exciting battle between the forces of good and evil.

Packed with fun, music, masti, action and adventure ‘Aladin’ boasts of a visual scale as never seen before on Indian screens.

The music of the film is composed by talented duo Vishal & Shekhar. 'Aladin' is produced by Eros International in association with Sujoy Ghosh’s production company Boundscript.

His young co-stars Riteish Deshmukh and newcomer Jacqueline Fernandes do well for themselves. Deshmukh lends his Aladin a touch of earnest and goofy, which makes him believable even if not someone you care to root for. Sri Lankan beauty Jacqueline exudes a ravishing screen-presence that has the potential to be honed into something along the lines of Katrina Kaif.

A subject like this calls in for spectacular imagery laced with wonder and intrigue. And so one expects the battle between two ancient genies in the climax to be much more than standard dishoom-dishoom.

What Ghosh dishes out in its place is some half-hearted hocus-pocus, a clumsy mix of old world lore with contemporary indifference, sloppy trips to the flashback and awkward bursts of forced sentimentality.
