Unintentionally Funny, Must-Watch Bollywood Movies: Paa

I won’t say much leading into this strip for fear of some major Amitabh Bachchan fan club backlash. Also, it’s 3 in the morning right now. Word of advice – Not an ideal time to write. Thus, let’s just jump to it, shall we?

Pliss to be download from here.

    ‘Oye come on messenger’ 😀 Btw.. congratulations.. you just finished a multipanel comic about Paa, without bitching about Vidya Balan..

    I was expecting four people in the audience here, but I guess two of them didn’t survive De Dana Dan. 😛



  2. AA says:

    Vidya Balan “doing it” three times in this movie? I got to watch it now. Who cares for Amitabh Bachchan’s acting!

  3. TheWalker says:


    LOL,, another funny one from you.

    Though, shouldn’t the lifeline drawn inverted? when it goes ‘flat’ the flat portion lies on the left side……he.he

  4. richatweets says:

    Dude. i knew the stroy, and i ALSO knew abt the misinformation about progeria (it was on an episode of criminal minds..and they got it RIGHT!)
    What i did NOT know was the whole rehabilitation thingy! that was WTFness at its best!

    and i agre with tantanoo. i think De Dana Dan killed two of your friends 🙁

    All in All i think ur review was bangon. not the patronizing shit ivebeen reading everywhere.and not insulting just for the sake of being funny!

    hmm i got all srs and all..maybe this will ease it out — BUTTSLOL 😀

  5. Nitin says:

    Not your funniest, can’t blame you, the movie isn’t really funny, intentionally or unintentionally, except the sending the homeless people into journalists’ houses, almost as stupid as CM for a day.

  6. Karthik Krishnan says:

    You surely gave it the Shtick…. *Rabble* *scandal* ha ha ha..

  7. Abhinav says:

    hahaha!!! I am not going to see Paa now (atleast in the theatres)!!

    *rabble* *rabble* *rabble*

  8. raag says:

    TheWalker: Brilliant observation man. Are you an editor or a doctor? 🙂

  9. Brainstuck says:

    “Bad man! didn’t take me to delhi” ; “Thank god I wasn’t wearing a condom” – GEMS etc. rabble rabble

  10. divyagarwal says:

    haha…the best review I’ve read and *Rabble**Rabble*

  11. Paa-thetic says:

    The entire hall was filled with 5-12 year old kids from schools and families sitting in anticipation of some funtastical movie…and the poor buggers were bombarded with sex and condom talk.. !!

  12. nitin says:

    this was GOLDEN!!! hllarious. im gonna go to watch this movie only to see how vidya balan makes out , not one , not 2 , oh nooo .. 3 times.. haha.. rable rable rable rable * * * .. haha.. im sure every could who is taken to watch this movie by their parents 10-15 years down the line could claim to have a traumatic childhood. that video chat was soo awsome!! haha

  13. Reema says:

    LOL 😀 hilarious!! dont worry about backlash!! express freely!

  14. aarkayne says:

    LOL…awesome…you should seriously consider storyboarding scripts for the sorry sods that make movies without getting storytelling. Now you have TOLD ’em.

    well done and thanks for the smiles.

    ** CACKLE ** CACKLE **

  15. Shrikala says:

    I liked this movie..thought you’d spare this one..and i feel guilty for laughing now 😛

  16. Sohaib says:

    Man, Vidya Balan doing it three times is the shit.

  17. Pranab says:



    Awesome review. Great to read something that finally does not suck up to the big bee and his small bee…

    I am a medical student and was quite pissed of with the medical misinformation dished out. I know I am a dweeb, so I ended up tweeting about probable causes of progeria… lol

  18. Karan says:

    Riz u da man!

    Nice to see you going a step ahead and taking on a flick that’s better than the stinkers of the last few months :).

    Seriously, those sermons of Abhishek deserved a comic strip all their own. I wish you could include the lecture by Vidya Balan in her Obs-n-Gynae avatar to have a baby NOW or just die. Fck, I think I caught her rolling her eyes at the mention of adoption by the parents who wanted to just get out of the clinic. Seriously, the amount of tantrums and righteousness both these 30-somethings were posturing, I was thinking they need to get laid more often. Thangod there was Auro to balance it out and make sure they ended up together.

    You could read my *very solemn* rant on the film at my blahg.

  19. rene says:

    sahi post!

    • Jaydev says:

      Ok..You did a great disservice to a ur audience..
      You want to make me watch…coz..you mentioned here that..
      and CONDOM talk…YAhooo….I will download this shit..and cut out just the
      making out part..
      I mean Vidya Balan is smoking hot..in Ishkya though a crappy movie…
      Vidya balan in saree is a recipe for instant hard-on..

  20. Ipshita says:

    I’m going to see the movie tomorrow and now I won’t be able to watch without laughing. Brilliant stuff, esp the video chatting bit 🙂

  21. rati says:

    heheh..rabble rabble..loved it..and can totally relate to the end..this guy in d hall clapped fr 5 minutes after d movie and I was wondering why on earth?

  22. Shruti says:

    I think his surname was Arte…..also….you rock!!!!

  23. Anjaney says:

    “Thank God I didn’t have a condom that day”: and to think dialogues couldn’t get worse than the onslaught of ‘Mann ka’ Radio.

  24. Uma says:

    Kuch bhi…

    Dont you think you missed out on a lot of good stuff…? The kids.. the smart one liners… Even Arundhati Nag’s question “Do you want this kid or not” rather than carrying on like the typical moralistic mom…? Not saying that some of the things that you have picked up are not flaws in the movie… but please give credit where it is due…


    • Sahil Rizwan says:

      Hehe, I don’t think I missed out on “a lot” of good stuff, but I’ll be the first to admit that the film did have potential.

      That said, the kids would fall under “the acting” bracket. The one-liners get nullified, and then some, by the condom line. I mean, I don’t care what context it was used in, but that’s just irresponsible. And about Arundhati Nag’s Juno moment… Alright, it was a sane, liberal, non-conservative, non-traditional-values-upholding take on things, but it’s too little to salvage the rest of the movie, really.

      Also, I didn’t mention silly mistakes like Vidya’s Honda Civic which changes models at will throughout the 2 hours. =p

      But to each his own, I say. I’m glad you liked the movie. =)

      • Uma says:

        🙂 Thanks Sahil… Appreciate the response… And let me also tell you that you saved 3 hours of our time by your review of Kurbaan… Thanks a lot for that… I enjoy the reviews and have howled with laughter …

  25. Saurabh says:

    I have loved most of the reviews here till now … specially the one of Kurbaan and London Dreams .. kudos to you \m/

    But somehow .. didnt really njoyed this one to tht extent … i saw this movie today and read your review after tht …( nd ahem ahem . … i m NOT a Big Big B or small B fan) ….
    the only thing is i liked the movie …. it does gets ‘unitentionally funny’ at some parts .. when the media thing comes in ,, nd all the political drama ,, the movie drags a bit . The whole episode can be edited out of the movie . But still the movie is worth every penny u spend on your ticket. Its quite an experimental movie by bollywood standards and it doesnt blows it away. It cud hv been done better but i found it pretty satisfactory cinema. Def a one time watch. The movie is unconventional in lot of ways ( afterall you dont hear the word condom tht many times in bolly movies 😀 )

    Nothing against your strip, loved the *** RABBLE** RABBLE***

    BUT, everything can be made to sound funny …with a little creativity … nd u got loads of it … no doubts abt tht … \m/

    the movie is much more than the strip covers up … nd its def not in the league of previous movies covered here.

  26. aarkayne says:

    to all the naysayers(esp @Uma)….this comic strip review is art in itself IMO. If there’s a movie you care about, watch it first and then if you feel like, come back and read this. If you think you can manage to laugh at the fun poked do, if you think you cannot, dont read….simple.

    Incidentally I did think PAA had its moments and I am a huge film buff, but that will never stop me from appreciating what is being done here. Whatever Sahil has done here is awesomly entertaining. More power to you dude!

  27. Amrit says:

    “Sure,just dont tell him,,u r his son”

    abso-fuckin-lutely hillarious man!!!!

  28. Tania says:

    ‘Quite Deservedly’ – hahaha
    If you get the time plz do one on Rab ne Bana Di Jodi – it has immense potential…

  29. Alakananada says:

    Hahah!!! Too good man!
    “Thank god i didnt have a condom that day!!” was too much!!! hee he eheh ee!!


  30. Sahil Rizwan says:

    Much thanks people! From the fans to the critics and the doubters. Much thanks, indeed. =)

  31. Mythili says:

    Really talented….. great cartoons and great dialogues… you only missed out the weird cape things all teachers wear and walk around…were they taking a graduation walk or something?

  32. meenu says:

    worst film of the decade it must be a flop

  33. Scribbler says:

    Whoa….!! This is the first time I have read this…. and monsieur, hats off to you … I’m not much into movies ..but now I’m going to watch PAA… only to gather more laughs…

    “Sure! Just don’t tell him you are his son. ” …. ROFL… !!!

  34. Ustad says:

    It’s very easy to make fun of other people’s work.I doubt you can’t come up with something original and creative of your own.Every movie or every work is not perfect,it has some flaws but to only look at the flaws and undermining the efforts of thousands of people that goes into a particular work is shameful.You used your bit of freedom of expression in criticizing movies and i used mine in criticizing your work.
    Whatever you write might be funny to a lot of people,I bet they haven’t faced any criticism in their lives and drive a lot of fun when it is directed towards others.

    • Sahil Rizwan says:

      Haha! That is like the single most redundant argument in the entire world, man! You almost make it sound like the writers & director were working for social service… & didn’t get paid lakhs of rupees… & didn’t charge people multiplex rates to see their work. =p

      I, on the other hand, am not charging people to read my work after marketing it as the greatest blog ever on every media outlet in the country… Although, that’s beginning to sound like not all that bad an idea. XD


  35. Aarti Aney says:

    Hehe!! Ustad really needs to take a long walk off a very short pier! *think* i like that Sahil!! LOL! Almost as good as *rabble* *rabble*! Please don’t stop the comic strips…ever!!

  36. Pratik says:

    *Rabble* *Rabble* *cheers**Cheers* *Rabble* *Rabble*

  37. Sowmya says:

    Hilarious… Keep writing 😉

  38. Harsha says:

    wow!! how the hell you do write so well… that was hilarious

  39. Kartik says:

    Visiting your site for the first time, awesome stuff, please keep them coming. By the way, are you a southpark fan?

  40. Sahil Rizwan says:

    Thanks Harsha and Kartik! Big South Park fan here. Got every single episode saved on my hard drive! =D

  41. Biplab says:

    This reminds me of Rod Hilton’s Abridged scripts. But good to see you’re not pointing out plot devices for comic relief which he sometimes does. And please make the dialogues shorter. eg Why to include the name of that school? Remove unnecessary details.

    And yeah, a personal request – make the sticks crazier. Crazy is good.

    • Sahil Rizwan says:

      Yep! Trying to incorporate all suggestions as best I can. Thanks man! =)

      • kannan says:

        Except may be Anurag Kashyap..the screenplays and dialogues of movies look so forced and constipated..Ram Gopal Varma’s movies though have a wierd South Indian Hindi accent(I am a South Indian) and Shudh Hindi dialogues are thoroughly enjoyable. I even enjoyed Ram Gopal Varma ki Aag.. Daud and China Gate are my favorite Hindi movies..both flopped..
        Havent figured out why it happened..
        Now only sees Eng,European movies..
        Totally disillusioned with Indian movies..
        Malayalam movies also are constipated and forced..Very few good indian movies are there..feel really sad about it…it also somehow reflect our general mediocrity..

  42. LE says:

    You do realize that you MUST compose a song with the lyrics ‘ rabble rabble scandal scandal’ right?
    I’ll be the first one to download it! 😛

  43. Amruta says:

    WHilarious man! Btw, Auro is prolly the exact double of the height that Progeria victims could grow to 😛

  44. LN says:

    Hi Sahil,

    you are a genius. You should be on the faculty of the LSJ (London School of Journalism). btw the Fake IPL guy mentioned in a chat that he enjoys reading your blog.

    Awesome, keep it going


  45. Vinitha says:

    “Quite Deservedly” lol! 🙂

  46. spongy says:

    hi..um i new here….but amazing site…i almost died laughing…read so many of them..best was my name is khan n this pa…keep up the good work…: D…

  47. nikhil says:

    hey nice one there but dont u think this is a bit too long

  48. …and he got the national award for wearing that latex mask. What a pity! There were umpteen better actors and their respective performances in competition

  49. VK says:

    Disappointed man. You completely ignored the Amitabh Bachchan and Vidya Balan angle!

  50. Sarthak Shrivastava says:

    hahaha…*rabble rabble scandal scandal rabble rabble*…Osum dude!!!
