You probably didn't know that Akshay Kumar's Entertainment hits theatres on Friday.
It's not your fault: this Tammanah-starrer didn't have any of the 'mandatory buzz' that accompanies most film releases. Seems like even Akki couldn't care any less about it. We know that the star cancelled quite a few promotional events for the film in Delhi.
So, should you watch Entertainment? We give you four reasons why you won't miss much even if you don't.
1. Storyline, or the lack of it
Yes, this is Entertainment -- featuring Akshay Kumar, a star known for churning out the kind of masala entertainers that were earlier only Salman Khan's preserve. So do we expect a decent plot? There'd be one, we hope. After all, you cannot have Boss-style antics and get away with it every time.
However, there seems to be zero 'entertainment value' to this flick. We are told that the film is about a man who discovers that his 'najaayaz baap' died bequeathing all his money to a dog! It will all be a dog's fight then.

2. Housefull, not again!
So the film is about Akshay Kumar trying to get the money. We have Mithun Chakraborty playing father to the heroine, trying to talk her out of marrying Akshay. In effect, this one is going to be one house full of loud characters struggling to get their hands on the money. Sounds familiar? Housefull 2? If you thought that film was pathetic, wait till you watch this one.
It couldn't get worse. Entertainment has a song that goes like this: Teri mahima aprampaar, How I wonder what you are!

Now, why would you want to watch a film like this? Add to it a literally "dumbed-down" version of the nursery rhyme Johnny Johnny, and bingo! We have all that it needs for retards to PARTY!
Wait! It gets worse with the dialogues. Consider these:
"Ghar ghar ki kahani vulgar ki raani ho gai hai"
"Ab yeh slumdog, millionnaire ban gaya"
"Arre kitna lucky ali hai yaar tu, jacqueline lag gae teri life ke"
"Kutte ko maar Akshay Kumar"
Yes, there are actors like Prakash Raj and Sonu Sood who have shown their brilliant acting in various films but they also have a flair for the typically nonsensical movies you would love to miss.
