The film, and its hero, don’t take themselves seriously, and quite deliberately so


Starring: Salman Khan, Ayesha Takia, Vinod Khanna
Directed by  Prabhu Deva
Rating: **

I was quite befuddled by Wanted at the start with its various mafia dons and their sidekicks, merrily shooting each other down. It took me a while to figure out who was gunning for whom and why. But then it isn’t important. The film is meant to be seen as an unashamed show of brawn with Salman Khan at his macho best. He continues to sport a largely blank face, careless swagger, unbending dance movements and an ability to pound anybody without getting pounded himself; like him or not, you have to admit the man is a hoot and the audience loves him. The film, and its hero, don’t take themselves seriously, and quite deliberately so. The Pyar Kiya to Darna Kya song in LG showroom with TV screens replacing the mirrors of the original is fun, so is the how-to-whistle routine Salman teaches his lady love. Even the lead villain Gani bhai (Prakash Raj does a volte face after his award-winning turn in Kanchivaram) doesn’t mind being a joker in custody.
