Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye!

Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye! Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye! is another Bollywood film with a crazy-catchy tagline: "40 TVs, 93 DVD players, 580 shirts, 240 music systems, 78 boxes of jewellery [sic], 31 cars, 2 dogs, & one greeting card..." Which means absolutely nothing at all, and doesn't remotely give an indication of what the movie might be about. I think they've officially gone too far with the "clever" taglines. And the fact that the numbers are different in the trailer doesn't help make it any clearer. You know what else doesn't help? A trailer that doesn't have English subtitles or voiceover, so I have no idea what's going on in it.

The movie seems to be some sort of musical comedy about a guy who rides a motorcycle and has a giant teddy bear. Okay, okay, I know there are ways other than a trailer to know what a movie's going to be like, so I did a little digging. It sounds like it's a light-hearted comedy about a thief named "Lucky" who is loved by everyone, even the police. And it's supposedly based on a real-life likable thief of the same name. That is so not where I would have gone with that trailer, so I'm glad I found that before I made even more of a fool out of myself than I do on any given week.
