Take Lagaan and Koi Mil Gaya, mix them well and then garnish with Tees Maar Khan and a handful of loud Priyadarshan comedies and voila! An unappetising movie is ready to serve. Shirish Kunder’s Joker has very little that we haven’t seen before. It follows a predictable track, expecting suspension of disbelief from the audience at every plot turn. Which might have been fine, had the film offered us some undiluted entertainment, fantasy and magic. Unfortunately, it doesn’t deliver. No surprises, no novelty, no freshness here.
