When it comes to wholesome entertainment you cannot ignore Akshay Kumar, and this time his latest offering is called ENTERTAINMENT which hit the screens today. But the movie disappoints on many levels and makes you want to walk out.

The movie is a slapstick comedy by debutant director duo Sajid and Farhad. When you watch the movie, the only thing missing in it is wholesome entertainment; a perquisite for a good watchable movie especially when the name itself is Entertainment.

The whole movie revolves around Akshay Kumar’s interactions with the dog named “Entertainment ““(Junior) who becomes a multi millionaire heir after the death of a Bangkok based Indian.

When you realize the dog is named entertainment, you wake up to the reality of the disastrous script that is to follow. What follows next is a merry go round between Akshay Kumar , Entertainment- the dog and other characters like Sonu Sood as “Arjun” and bollywood’s latest baddie Prakash Raj as “ Karan”.

While the people around the dog are trying their worst antics, the dog himself is seen lying motionless most of the time; just like the audience in the theatre is. Even after his minimalistic acts, the only good performer in the movie seems to be the dog, rising above the worst CGI Bollywood has seen. While the lead dog is spared some sanity, other dogs around turned out rather unlucky when it comes to acts they were given to perform on the name of #Cinema.

The running time of the movie is 140 minutes, and in all this time; the movie fails to make you laugh.

If you are a enthusiast of flying dogs with bad CGI then the possibilities of you laughing is high, but still doubtable. To add to the misery enters Krushna Abhishek “Jugnu” as Akshay kumar’s best friend, who to audience’s bad luck speaks only in bollywood movie titles. Even though he is irritating at times , his character turns out to be the funniest amongst all. The lead actress Tamannaah with extra A’s and extra N’s in her name fails to add anything extra to the movie , with her extra white looks which makes you think if she has walked right out of the“Twilight Saga” she delivers nothing as a television addict portrayal.

All in all , it will be better to skip this ENTERTAINMENT
