It was just another weekend and I was desperately trying to get over my Kambakkht Ishq debacle. Some of my friends called and we decided to go for a movie. When checking the available options it was an option between Ice Age 3 or The Hangover. At that moment, my Indian instincts kicked in: Let’s see… Ice Age is 1hr 20 minutes long and The Hangover is 2hrs 20 minutes. I did the math and The Hangover came out on top. I had never seen any trailer of the movie so I didn’t have a clue what I was getting into but after the lights came and the credits rolled; it turned out to be one of the best decisions of my life.


Plot:


Doug (Justin Bartha) is getting married. So what is necessary for a quintessential marriage?? An equally awesome bachelor party!! Doug is joined by Phil(Bradley Cooper) a teacher who has been collecting money for this party by conning students to pay for an ‘excursion’ (which will never happen, of course). Then there is Stu (Ed Helms) or Professor Fag**t as he is referred to; a married man whose marriage is going nowhere because of controlling freak he has for a wife. They meet Alan (can’t remember his real name), the bride’s brother who acts and dresses up in a suspiciously gay manner. Add to this a wild ride to Vegas and you get a backdrop where anything can happen. And hell! Believe me, anything and everything happens!!! The four friends propose a toast to the bride and the groom but the shots turn out to be spiked with roofies (or the date rape drug) and they wake up the next morning in a state which you have to see to believe. As they slowly recover from the process and see the mess they have caused, they notice that they have a Bengal Tiger in the bathroom, the groom Doug is missing and Stu (the professor) has one tooth missing. Plus there is a baby at the doorstep about which nobody knows anything. Find out what happens next as the three remaining friends try to find out what happened the previous night and find Doug before its too late. Don’t think, just go and watch one of the most unmissable movies of this year!!


The Adventure:


The Hangover is one joy ride which keeps you in splits from the beginning till the end. This is one movie where you just laugh out loud. There is no ‘pass a smile’ moment. You can’t help but go ‘hahaha’ and if you are not one of those people who like to sit next to people who laugh uncontrollably then God help you because the whole cinema hall was in splits. One more thing that goes in the favor of the movie is its innovative script. The storyline is simple but anything that you could imagine in your wildest dreams happens in this movie and no, its not there just to make you laugh; things do make sense by the end. This is what you call a complete entertainer. How else can you explain a Bengal Tiger, Mike Tyson, a naked Korean gangster in the trunk of your car and one of your friends married to a hooker (played by Heather Graham)? See? It makes no sense when I narrate it just like that right? But I am pretty sure that when you’ll come out of the cinema hall it will be clear as daylight and you will probably be in one of your happiest moods ever. I guarantee that.


The Hangover works because it gives you the unexpected. How else can you explain hitting on a random girl walking on the sidewalk using a police car radio when you are not even a policeman? And on top of that, blowing and torching that same police car up? Then the police, instead of putting you in jail, electrocute you with those electric stun guns just for fun as a way of getting back at you!! Also, the F word has been used quite liberally but the fun part is, it’s not used as an abuse but rather to evoke humour and this intention should be applauded. And yes, you do laugh, both at the characters and with them. Probably, one of the funniest and confronting scenes would have to be with the baby (who Alan calls “Carlos”). Alan dresses the baby as a ‘cool dude’ with goggles and all and then he says “Hey guys, look, have you ever seen a baby do this? (And he does the ‘hand motion’ holding the baby’s hand; those who have already seen the movie would probably be rolling on the floor right now!). Yes, it does sound vulgar and cheap but it you can’t help but laugh.


By now, you must have guessed that this is definitely NOT a family movie. However, go out with your friends or a date and you will not be disappointed. Infact, the film actually cheers you up and you are in a light mood by the end of it all. It really doesn’t feel like its 2hrs 20 minutes long!! Kudos to the director for that. This is one of those movies which you must see to believe. My review cannot do justice to such an awesome film.


Believe just go in and I promise, you’ll have the best hangover ever!!!
