Story: Ali, an ambitious young reporter, working in a downmarket TV news channel, is desperate to get to Amreeka, any which way. Having had his visa rejected several times, he embarks on a novel plan to enter El Dorado. He makes a fake video of Osama bin Laden, using a look-alike, Noora, who happens to be a humble chicken farmer and hopes this would be his ticket to the US. Alas, the best laid plans always backfire....
Movie Review: Now this one's a real cornball. It maybe a shade amateur and have loads of rough edges to its canvas, if you compare it to a regular Bollywood comedy. But when it comes to content, the film scores above several of the recent laugh riots that may have done well at the box office, but definitely didn't have an intelligent script to boast of. Tere Bin Laden has both: a smart script and some smart acting.
Leading the goofball team is veteran Piyush Mishra as the cranky TV producer who heads a TV channel that goes by the dubious name of `Danka' (or something like that). He sends his newshounds on a punishment assignment: to capture the crowing of cocks in a cock-a-doodle competition.
Yawn! says smartypants, Ali (Ali Zafar) who anyhow sleepwalks his way through most of his assignments because he's waiting for the big kill: an ace reporter's job in the hot and happening US media. But the routine assignment metamorphoses into a dream assignment when Ali discovers a chicken farmer who happens to be an Osama clone.
The rest is easy: an ambitious make-up artist (Sugandha Garg), a maverick dubbing artist who can speak Arabic (Rahul Singh), loads of hungry-for-TRP TV channels and a gullible and godawfully stupid Amreekan government are all that it takes to give the world its new breaking news story.
The actors are having a ball, that's evident. The scriptwriter (Abhishek Sharma) is just loving it: making digs on America's war against terror. And the viewers are in for some breezy fun. Savour the satire.
