The Vigil Idiot: Ramaiya Vastavaiya

July 22, 2013 8:11 am

This film, starring the producer Kumar Taurani’s son Girish Kumar (as hep dude Ram) and Shruti Haasan (as love interest Sona), is a remake of director Prabhu Deva’s own Telugu blockbuster Nuvvostanante Nenoddantana. Now, I can give the benefit of the doubt to a new director trying to remake a South Indian movie in Hindi and screwing up. But you’d think that the same guy making a movie twice would have learned some lessons from his first go-around, right? Well, if this film is anything to go by, you’d be wrong.
