Don't Go for this one

Just how repellent is Go? Well, the answer is that it is so incredibly bad that after watching it, you'll need to bathe in 10 litres of dettol, get a full body scrub and shampoo with vinegar to remove the scummy residue that remains. Some movies leave a bad taste in the mouth. This one will make you Go to the hospital.

If I told you that the entire plot consisted of two people (newcomer Gautam Gupta and Nisha Kothari) trying to look sexy and pretending to be involved in a murder mystery, you'd wonder how director Manish Srivastava got a break in the film industry!

It's unbelievable that even after numerous disasters including Aag, producer Ram Gopal Varma still hasn't pulled up his socks. The first question that will come to your mind with Go, is that how a two line story can stretch to two hours! I'm still wondering.

As for the 'plot', Abhay (Gautam) is the typical trying hard to be funny, learned-acting-in-the-gym kind of hero. He runs in slow motion to show off his muscles. And, in these trying times of women's liberation, Vasundhara (Nisha Kothari) matches him sin for skin.

Anyway, to cut a long story, the Chief Minister murders a Deputy Chief Minister. The evidence that can expose the CM lands up with overexposed Nisha and expressionless Gautam who have fun on the run, literally. To add to the humdrum soniyo re's, Kay Kay Menon shows up dressed like Sherlock Holmes.

The writer (Arshad Sayed) pens this freak show, even as the director smacks the audience in the eyeballs with tasteless songs and ugly villains. Because it's just a stupid movie, he figures a man with long hair being kicked on a broken knee is fun. I won't even mention Rajpal Yadav trying to play Michael Jackson or the overbearing character actors or the extremely grating background score.

Go is like a grease stain on your favourite shirt that (pardon the pun) refuses to 'go' away -- it is dirty, frustrating and unnecessary.
