According to the grapevine “Naughty @ 40” is enthused by the Hollywood comedy movie “The 40 Year-Old Virgin”. Produced by Anuj Sharma and Sandeep Kapur this slapstick comedy provokes the thought of how virginity camouflaged with ignorance puts life into trouble. The film highlights the impact of late nuptials and also concerns with the issue of age disparity and immaturity in relation to marriage.
The film revolves around a 40 year old virgin played by Govinda who desires to get married only to fulfill his crave for sex. But his naïve bride played by Yuvika Choudary tends to complicate his marriage as she is oblivious and immature to comprehend the significance of marriage and the demeanor to carry a connubial life thus making things convoluted for him to instigate.
Director Jagmohan Mundhra who has directed movies like “Provoked” and “Bawandar” has made a fair attempt by directing “Naughty @ 40” but not credible enough to appreciate his directorial dexterity.
The screenplay and the cinematography used in the film were not polished well as it made no difference for the spectators to make out whether they were watching 90’s or the present era movie.
Govinda with his signature style along with his buoyant and amicable appeal has convincingly amused the audience and was dexterous enough to tickle their funny bone. Whereas the other co-actors were quite good to keep the viewers entertaining.
Due to its average content and double-meaning gags “Naughty @ 40” cannot seem to reach the expectations of the audience neither has satisfied their appetite for entertainment but for Govinda aficionados “Naughty @ 40” can work despite of its puny appearance towards the audience.
The movie seems to shoddily suffer from every element required to make a comedy movie with unsoiled humour. The movie speaks for itself so if you have nothing better to do this weekend then get your rib tickled by cheap and grimy gags of “Naughty @ 40”.
