For lack of a better descriptor, Phamous can be said to be about men and moustaches. These fellows do nothing but cock their pistols in all ways possible, and slap each other about in a plot which is never quite visible. For all the latest Entertainment News, download Indian Express App

More questions. Why did the ladies sign up for this mess? Or should we hazard the guess that their ‘mooch’ is their ‘mashooka’? Saran wears deep pink lipstick and a pout, while Gill is to be seen in precisely two-and-a-half scenes, with the camera hovering suggestively over both their bosoms. The villainous Kadak Singh (Kay Kay), along with his permanently randy pal Ram Vijay (Tripathi) and Babban (Khan), are left to lord over the land, while Kadak’s faithful ‘chela’ Radhe, (Sheirgill looking a bit like Amol Palekar, and fully lost) is left to bring up the rear. The question is, is there one?
