The Vigil Idiot: Bol Bachchan

Our newest cartoonist attempts to explain the latest Bollywood release. All irrational plot twists are entirely intentional.

July 9, 2012 8:21 am by

After scoring success with Singham, his Hindi version of the Tamil blockbuster Singam, director Rohit Shetty is back with another remake. Although, not really. Because, while he may have bought the rights to Gol Maal, Shetty’s Bol Bachchan—where Ajay Devgn replaces Utpal Dutt and Abhishek Bachchan is cast in Amol Palekar’s role—is about as far removed from the 1979 Hrishikesh Mukherjee classic as Inspector Dhoble is from having a good time. Read the comic. You’ll see.

Sahil Rizwan is a 24-year-old freelance writer and creator of The Vigil Idiot. When he’s not busy doing everything in his power to avoid taking up a 9-to-5 desk job, you can probably find him curled up in front of a TV or his laptop.

    Why do you keep moving around. Even if you do can you leave a note on the original website. Becomes difficult to track you. Here i was thinking you had not written a review since rowdy rathore. Not even the promised one of dangerous ishq

    I think he has been forced to clean out his act. I agree that this one needed some choice cuss words!

    Sahil…did the Mumbai Bosswalas ask you explicitly not to use the swear words in this website?

    This was hilarious no doubt but the spark of was missing due to lack of those crazy swear words these movies deserved..

    and what will happen to will you stop being active there now?

    With fame, come the critics. You actually get flamed for having “blank frames” and sampling 8-9 epic fails (instead of, like, a web site dedicated to Bol Bachchan fails?) as the reasons for this strip not being up to the mark. That’s the trademark for this strip, guys. We love the blank frames!!!

    Fun comic, as always. I still believe you can do much better with so-called serious and acclaimed material, instead of picking on obviously mind-less comedies. Check out the Mad spoofs of Oscar winners such as Forrest Gump and A Few Good Men. The closest you’ve come is with “3 Idiots”, a movie that at least tried to be mind-ful… and yet you found enough comic material in it!!

    This is definitely not upto Sahil Rizwan’s standards! Common Sahil!

  14. The Vigil Idiot was so much better when he was allowed to abuse. Oh well.

    I know, Mister Rizwan, that you can up the ante! Your next one better be more kickass and kickass.

  15. Ironical, since you try to point out old jokes in the movie, yet use lame and overdone memes like holy x, batman !

    The whole movie is full of epic fails, and you could point out only like 8-9 or so. You’re definitely not qualified to write this piece of sarcasm on the movie.

  16. brilliantly funny as always!
    i miss the expletives though.

    Was that you who wrote it Rizwan? I don’t think so, coz it was very far removed from your previous work. And, in the beginning they do mention a new cartoonist. Perhaps you could give him pointers before unleashing him on us? :) )

  19. avrj |

  20. Sosha |

    The comic wasn’t as hilarious as the older few frames were blank. It might need a lil xtra pep added!

    I had loved the Rockstar and!
