5.0 out of 5 stars Top comedy in top style 11 July 2010
Format:DVD
Set in Hollywood, it's a swirling fiasco revolving round the reluctant pairing of a promiscuous stuntman with a snooty supermodel. The humour is just raucous & non-stop. The style is visually stunning with lavish sets & contrasting colours. The acting is 1st rate. You'll love it if you are modern with an open sense of humour. In this respect it broke new ground for Bollywood, but unfortunately got a bad reception from people who lag behind the times.
Basically, don't watch it with your grandparents.

5.0 out of 5 stars ishq 4 Oct 2009
Format:DVD
This film has set a place in my heart. Before I purchased the item I was hearing reviews that is was vulgar with
sensless humour. But I was no sheep and bought it anyway as I was waiting
A long time for it to be released onto dvd.
No other film since salam namaste has played the role of showing how asian adults live in todays world. It clearly displaye that not all indians live at home with their parent waiting
To get married. They handeled the subject of sex and the battle of the sexes very maturly and well.
So if you are looking for a great film with even better songs then look no further and definatly get this film as kareena kapoor and akshye kumar have done an excellent job here in this film. Akshye.shows that he can move with the time and kareena displays maturity in this role. They are both very brave in
Tackling the subjects of this film

2.0 out of 5 stars A very silly film 29 Mar 2010
Format:DVD
Well, this has been done before hasn't it....Akshay Kumar is the chauvanist, and Kareena Kapoor is the feminist. They meet, they bicker, they fall in love. Only this particular version of these events Bollywoods it up and adds a ridiculous plot with a watch stuck inside Akshay Kumar (don't ask!) and a cameo from Sylvester Stallone. Oh, and Denise Richards too, for some reason. Not really worth the time.

1.0 out of 5 stars Great, if you like terrible films 28 May 2011
Format:DVD
I bought the film on the strength of the reviews on this page, but perhaps those people saw a different film. This film is a real mess, and left me feeling embarrassed. Kareena and Akshay have no real chemistry, and at times it feels that all Akshay can do now is far out and ridiculous comedy. He seems to have had more box offices bombs than anyone in recent years.

The film is childish and the performances are absolutely dreadful. Denise Richards, and the other western stars seem to have been given no direction, and if grinning at the camera is acceptable to the director, Sabbir Khan,then perhaps its time he found another profession. This film is nothing short of embarrassing.

1.0 out of 5 stars film from Bollywood, much ballyhooed and very booed 11 Jan 2010
By H. Bala - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Wow, just when you thought Bollywood had graduated to a more sophisticated level, crapadoodle like KAMBAKKHT ISHQ comes out to put a stink in the room. The heat on this film had been palpable for months leading up to its theatrical release, what with so much money fed into it, rumors of huge Hollywood stars co-starring, possibly Arnold Schwarzenegger, possibly Beyonce performing an item number and maybe Carmen Electra shooting a promotional music video with Akshay and Kareena... Most of these castles in the air crash and burn. KAMBAKKHT ISHQ (meaning "Wretched Love") is quite horrible and crass and offensive. It actually cheeses me that it made so much money in its opening.

Indian cinema doesn't really delve too much in the area of the sex farce, which is what this movie is at its core. But all the elements that make a successful sex farce are markedly absent. Based on the 2002 Tamil film PAMMAL K. SAMBANDAM, KAMBAKKHT ISHQ doesn't at all go for elegance or subtlety or a light touch, and it's about as appropriate as wearing raggedy flip flops to a funeral. But it's not a funeral but rather a wedding where our two leads meet, and it's antagonistic from jump.

Viraj is a womanizing Hollywood stuntman and a devoted bachelor. Simrita is an aspiring surgeon and she used to model to pay off her medical bills; she doesn't believe in love. When Viraj's brother Lucky gets married, Viraj shows up at the church to chastise him, and I think it's around this time, when hearing the cliched, mind-numbing dialogue, that I started getting a bad feeling about the movie. Simrita then pops up and begins to harangue the bride, warning her friend that love doesn't exist. Viraj and Simrita then start heckling each other. We all know where this is going.

SPOILER in the following paragraph, for those who care about things like SPOILERS:

Integral to the plot is a scene in which a surgeon's watch gets lodged into the patient's stomach during surgery. This leads to a pretty funny running gag, one of the very few stabs at humor which works. Turns out, the watch plays a bhajan (spiritual song) on the hour every hour.

Viraj and Simrita keep bumping into each other, all over Los Angeles and even in Italy, and the battle of the sexes rages on. For a sex farce, by western conventions, it doesn't ever get that risque. By Hindi standards, however, it's pretty naughty. Bollywood's definition of raunch involves scandalous kissing scenes between Akshay and Kareena and perceived nudity and, of course, scads of loose American women. The humor is very crude and tasteless, and that there's an abundance of films of this sort in Indian cinema makes me chafe a little. But slapping women around? Akshay and his stupid sidekick doing blackface? And a nasty cavity search? Really? Those are the laughs you're going for? (Well, okay, the cavity search made me laugh.) The production values are certainly polished, but the screenplay is this steaming pile of bat guano.

There's a lot of mugging for the camera, and Akshay is the biggest perpetrator. Akshay Kumar is a Bollywood superstar and is like a Swiss army knife in that he's proficient in any number of genres. Off the top of my head, KHAKEE is a slick action-packed thriller; NAMASTEY LONDON is an awesome romantic drama; HERA PHERI and MUJHSE SHAADI KAROGI happen to be solid comedies. Except that his last few attempts at wacky comedy have turned Akshay Kumar into a box office flop machine. HEYY BABYY and WELCOME are shifty stuff. Akshay's been aggravating me lately.

Kareena Kapoor was so very good in JAB WE MET. But she's shrill in this one and her character not that likable (not that Akshay is exactly a nice guy himself in this one). And I just smile whenever I see Boman Irani because he's in this one just like he seems to be in every other Bollywood flick, I'm assuming just because he can. The inclusion of big-name Hollywood stars in this flick was something of a coup, and this was highly touted in promoting KAMBAKKHT ISHQ. Sho nuff, we get Brandon Routh, Denise Richards (who isn't here much but is pivotal to the story), and Sylvester Stallone - none of whom are exactly A-listers (and no, I don't think Sly is top of the heap anymore). Their appearances make sense in light of the L.A.-based premise as these cats do play themselves. But Stallone's second cameo comes off as far-fetched, unless he really can shove a car two feet away and also rip out a parking meter with his bare hands and single-handedly take on an L.A. street gang. And if you wish to learn how to pronounce the movie title correctly, then by all means stay far away from Sly's attempts to slur it out.

The protagonist is a Hollywood stuntman, so we do get to see Akshay's character performing several stunts. The film's opening scene is pretty neat and it's clear that it's Akshay himself doing all the jumping and kicking and running around, and he does do a lot of the other stunts, some of which, by the way, are staged lavishly. But then just to be clear, I don't know that KAMBAKKHT ISHQ unveils the real behind-the-scenes scoop on the life of the stuntman. KAMBAKKHT ISHQ is no HOOPER or even FALL GUY.

This is Bollywood, so there are musical numbers. They're forgettable.

Okay, "Om Mangalam Mangalam" is sorta catchy.

As a bonus feature, the DVD offers the 26-minute-long "Making Of" segment. This includes interviews with the cast and crew (which also feature the American stars) and plenty of breaking down the musical numbers. None of the folks involved seems to feel remorse about being in this film.

The best part about this whole mess may well be the unusual DVD cardboard case which unfolds into four times its size and into a glossy poster of Akshay and Kareena on one side and smaller photos on the other side. Akshay, what happened to you, dude?

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly Wonderful 11 Mar 2013
By Spiritgirl - Published on Amazon.com
Upon reading the prior reviews, I was hesitant to rent this movie. Nonetheless, having seen other Akshay and Kareena films I knew that it could not be that bad. An, I am glad that I did. I loved the energy and frankfulness in this film. The storyline was again, interesting and fresh. Loved Om Mangalesh and how it was used in the film. This film is not bad. It is a love story and in the end, you are happy for them. I loved the rental and it lead to me purchasing the video. If you are and Akshay Kumar and Kareena Kapoor fan, you will enjoy this film.
