Plot: The year is 2009 and Osama Bin Laden is dead. Sharma (Manish Paul) is a budding Bollywood director whose plans to make a film with an Osama look-alike Paddi Singh (Pradhuman Singh) has come to a standstill. Meanwhile in the US, President Obama (Iman Crosson) has to prove to the world that they have shot the dreaded terrorist dead. He entrusts this job to his CIA agent David (Sikander Kher) who disguises himself as a Hollywood producer David Chaddha and lures Sharma and Paddi with a film. On the other hand Khaleeli (Piyush Mishra), a terrorist arms dealer wants the world to believe that Osama is alive.
The rest of the film revolves around how David and Khaleeli try to trap Paddi and coax him into starring in a fake tape for their respective purposes.
Performances: Manish Paul, we love you as a funny man on your TV shows and award functions! However wish we could say the same about you here as well in this film. Is it because of his badly written role? Well, I haven't figured an answer to that yet..
It's extremely disheartening to see talented actors like Piyush Mishra being wasted in such roles. He seems to be grimacing through most of his lines..
Pradhuman Singh tries to lift up the film's spirit and succeeds but alas, not for a very long time. Blame it on the poor script and screenplay.
Sikander Kher's transition from a CIA agent to a producer is amazing. But sadly he fails to give a memorable performance.
Sugandha Garg's hammy acting and cringe worthy dialogues make you squirm in your seats.
Ali Zafar's cameo act...well I rest his case in your court!
Direction: Abhishek Sharma's 'Tere Bin Laden' is still remembered for its rib-tickling comedy and was a sleeper hit at the box office. Next the director made 'The Shaukeens' (stop scratching your heads...Remember 'Manali Trace'? Yes..that movie!). Just as we are about to forgive you for that here comes the sequel of 'Tere Bin Laden' that makes us want to bang our heads in despair.
I remember the makers telling that the film carries no social message and its sole purpose is to purely entertain! But hey guys, what about giving us a film which has a sensible PLOT? Trust me but even some of the WhatsApp messages that I come across often are far more funnier and entertaining than what the gags in this film has to offer.
A Osama doppelganger torn between Americans and terrorists. The idea sounds intriguing and funny, doesn't it? But sadly it remains only on paper.
Thankfully the film doesn't have too many songs.
Combo-on-offer: Just few laughs
Verdict: We give 'Tere Bin Laden: Dead Or Alive' SLAPS for being a dampener and ruining our memories of the first film. To put it in Paddi's words, 'yeh toh lara lappa ho gaya'!
