Get ready for approximately two and a half hours of comic entertainment labeled Brake Fail, a Mumbai Mantra presentation directed by Kaushik Ganguly with sequences to send you reeling with laughter and is truly a refreshing relief amid the hot and humid weather of the city. But it must surely be admitted that the movie lacks cohesiveness which may be the primary and maybe, not the only, cause of not creating a lasting impact on the critic’s mind. There is some pleasant cinematography of Rakesh Kumar Singh but the main storyline, though punched with witty dialogues, often strays off in confusion and the ending seems very much oversimplified. Neel Dutt’s compositions are again fantastic and the best thing in Neel is that he is correctly not at all reserved to keep the lyrics bounded by any linguistic barrier.
The main story sparks off with a chance meeting of a Muslim girl Hena and a promising car-mechanic Sidhu on their way to Calcutta. Hena was escaping from the clutches of her foster mother Sabina bent on delivering her in marriage to a smuggler family while Sidhu was on his way to shape his career in the city of joy, specifically at Papaji’s garage. Unable to leave the lonely girl to the mercy of the crowded city, Sidhu took Hena with him to the eccentric Papaji and introduced her as his Hindu wife Rupa. As Sidhu started on his job in the garage he was introduced to the rest of the crew particularly to the rowdy Shanti whose ego was shattered by Sidhu’s expertise and though they started off on a discord but a surprise turn turnde them friends to heart.
Thus when everything was looking okay, Shanti and Sidhu stumbled on a car containing smuggled fire arms and found themselves chased by the police all over the city. The don who actually carried out these illegal transactions managed to rope in Papaji in the trap and thus the whole of Papaji’s crew with Hena took off on a stolen lorry to the outskirts of the city.
What remains to be seen is how this crazy bunch manages a living while evading the police and how they ultimately establish their innocence along with roping in the fugitives with a promise of a happy ending of the Hena-Sidhu relation. Thus the events that follow are quite lively but seemed to be cramped with too much of a hurry. The problem appears to stem from the introduction part that seemed a bit too long and the sub-plots that were a bit too many so that the final section lacked the proper time to converge and thus was bound to be oversimplified and abrupt.
Annu Kapoor, no doubt, delivers one of his best performances and Paran Bandyopadhyay, Tanima Sen, Arindam Sil, Saswata Chatterjee and Lama are comically correct with their timings. Shantu Mukherjee, Biplab Chatterjee and the director himself are accurate in their respective characterization that certainly overshadowed Parambrata and Swastika in the lead roles albeit the latter adding a graceful touch.

Brake Fail 2009 Bengali Movie-viewer’s Review
In a recent interview, I heard that this movie was completed before Jackpot. So after watching this movie, you are not justified in asking, how can someone who made an entertaining light-hearted comedy like Jackpot make a bizarre and mindless comedy like “BrakeFail”.
The name ,though is quite justified in the sense that the plot moves as haphazardly as a car with failed brakes. What was meant to be a tribute to Hrishikesh Mukherjee turns out to be almost an insult. The main plot revolves around a Hindu car-mechanic (Parambrata) in love with a Muslimgirl (Swastika). But, the main plot leads to a number of subplots, which leads to utter confusion and chaos. Parambrata hams and remains as stiff as a pillar throughout. Swastika looks beautiful, but that is all she manages to do in the entire movie. Even powerful actors like Saswataand , Kaushik Ganguly himself fail to raise above the weak script. Annu Kapoor acts as a surprise package, acts the role of “Papaji” well.
It is awful that in the entire timespan of thisso-called comedy, laughs come only from the woe of elderly couple Paran Bandopadhyay and Tanima Sen.The music (Neel dutt) and cinematography are plain ordinary. The dialogues, instead of making you laugh,makes you cringe. Just pray, Kaushikda’s next movie “Chhaya Chhobi” starring Rituparno ghosh will act as a balmfor all those ,who sat through “Brake fail”.
Brake Fail Movie Rating:1/5
