Go Goa Gone: Die laughing


(Any opinions expressed here are those of the author and not necessarily of Reuters)

A handout still from "Go Goa Gone".To enjoy Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK‘s “Go Goa Gone“, you have to ignore the tacky effects and the bad make-up and concentrate on the wisecracks and repartee between the main characters. Once you’ve done that successfully, get ready to buckle in for what is an unexpectedly fun ride.

One of India’s first zombie films, “Go Goa Gone” relies heavily on excellent dialogue and some great chemistry between the main leads to make a comedy that will leave you laughing for quite a while.

Replete with plenty of cuss words and the kind of snarky conversation you are likely to hear among friends, the zombies seem just a device to move the story forward, rather than the centre of the story, which is a good thing.
