The Xpose: Expensive Garbage

 
The Xpose: Expensive Garbage

Claps for: The spurts of laughter


Slaps for: The pathetic narrative


Popcorn Refill: Lots


The Story: The movie is set in the Bollywood of 1960. It explores the ugly and extravagant side of filmmaking in that era. The film revolves around the murder of an actress at a party. The first half along with a good part post interval of the film is spent in establishing the lead up to the death. The rivalry between two actresses, two directors, and scandalous affairs are the crux of the plot.


Performances: Himesh Reshammiya as Ravi Kumar struggles to act. He somewhat manages to deliver the cheesy dialogues like ' raja ka beta paida nanga paida hota hai lekin hota to rajkumar hi' with effort. Both Zoya Afroz and Sonali Raut are unimpressionable in their respective roles. The excessively placed Anant Mahadevan fits his part. Yo Yo Honey Singh as the cunning singer, composer talks in a strange accent regardless of the language while showing no signs of any acting ability. The rest of the crew is just about passable.


On A Musical Note: The background score of the movie sounds like that of a lame daily soap. It is loud and jumpy trying to heighten desperately the drama or awe. The ample songs keep springing at you. Songs like 'ice cream khaoongi' remain with you despite the bizzare lyrics. Overall an average album that is riding on the faith of the fan following.


Combo On Offer: The Xpose is a bad attempt at making something grand. The narrative keeps faltering since the beginning. The time spent establishing characters through a voice over in the start of the film indicates lack of creativity. The dramatic entries of Himesh every time he enters a frame are exhausting to watch. The usage of corny dialogues to dramatize a scene is in fact hilarious. Every time there is a supposedly tense situation in the film the background score goes in a tizzy. For some reason the film has people roaming about with cigarettes to create some sort of an impact on the character. The end has too many twists making it boring. Overall the film is a painful watch hoping to make money solely trusting the fan base.


Our Verdict: We give The Xpose Slaps for being unimaginative.
