The review is about the movie “Money Back Guarantee,” directed by Faisal Qureshi. The film features an ensemble cast that includes Fawad Khan, Wasim Akram, and others, and explores the dichotomy of capitalism and socialism while touching on societal issues such as corruption, VIP culture, and discrimination. The movie is set in a fictional bank that holds the wealth of corrupt politicians in Pakistan, and a gang of amateurs tries to rob it to reclaim the people’s money. While the characters are well fleshed out, the plot is chaotic, and cause-and-effect issues leave the audience questioning how and why things are happening. The film’s humor and satire don’t always land, and it relies too heavily on its star-studded cast. While there are moments of entertainment, the movie as a whole is a letdown.
However, the film heavily relies on its star-studded cast, and some of the actors’ performances feel forced and over-the-top. While Fawad Khan shines in his role as the cheapskate bank manager, Bux, some of the other performances fall flat. Gohar Rasheed’s portrayal of an unemployed goon is decent, but his accent doesn’t quite hit the mark, and it becomes a distraction rather than an asset.
The plot of the film is centered around a heist, and while it does provide some comedic moments, it also feels disjointed and lacks coherence. The changing plan of the robbers as they face setbacks becomes chaotic, and the film struggles to find a center. The cause-and-effect issues in the plot make it difficult to understand why certain events are happening.
‘Money Back Guarantee’ has its entertaining moments, but it doesn’t quite live up to its hype. The film’s reliance on its star cast and lack of coherence in the plot may leave some viewers disappointed. Nonetheless, it does offer a satirical commentary on the societal issues prevalent in Pakistan, making it worth a watch for those interested in political comedies.
