Do Knot Disturb


Hindi, Comedy, 2009, Color

Cast And Crew

A filthy rich businessman (Govinda) married to a beautiful and sophisticated woman (Sushmita Sen) tries to hide his extramarital affair with a supermodel (Lara Dutta). To save his skin, he bribes a waiter (Riteish Deshmukh) into pretending to be the supermodel's boyfriend. Add to this, the ex-boyfriend of the supermodel (Sohail Khan) who still loves her but has issues with his anger management and the private detective (Ranvir Shorey) who loves the wife and will do anything to get proof of the husband's infidelity...

Do Knot Disturb is yet another idiotic leave-your-brains-at home, and have a good laugh type of senseless comedy Hindi cinema has been flooded with, especially after the success of No Entry (2005).

Directed by David Dhawan and inspired by the French comedy La doublure or The Valet (2006), the film reiterates that if you had brains, you wouldn’t see this ‘film’ in the first place. And the only way you could have a good laugh while watching it is if you have the ability to laugh at yourself and your stupidity at actually venturing out to see DKD in public.

For a man who has given many entertainers in the comic genre and one who admittedly was amongst the best in the genre, David is shockingly out of his element in this one. Like the rest of the film, his comic sense is waaaay off and the film, little more than a string of mostly poor and juveline gags, represents a nadir in his career. Yes, there is the sudden odd funny moment or dialogue but that’s about it.

The actors give each other a really tough fight to see who comes out with the worst performance in the film. Look at the sheer hard work they’ve all put in - shrill screaming, slapping one another, jumping about like monkeys, making the most absurd funny faces in the name of unfunny acting and ensuring their comic timing is all off, among others. Since one finds it to difficult to select a winner, let’s say it’s a tie! 

Technically, these sort of movies are not much to write home about and neither is this one. The camera is little more than a recording device for the actors to strut their stuff while the songs are nothing more than a music interlude that are most unimaginatively picturised.

All in all, best to respect the makers of this film by following their advice – 'Do Knot Disturb' them. Stay at home or wherever and do whatever else instead. It would be time (and money) infinitely better spent.
