Go Goa Gone and Gippi are light entertainment
A lot of speculation and intrigue is surrounding the first 'zomcom' of Bollywood - Go Goa Gone. Saif Ali Khan sporting blond locks is not the only queer thing in the film. The fact that he is also playing a character actor for the film and the main protagonists are Kunal Khemu and Vir Das is also weird.

Another release this week is Karan Johar's Gippi. It seems that Johar now wants to form his army of newcomer actors as the film stars no big names, although Lalit Modi's niece is debuting with the film. Gippi has nothing in common with Go Goa Gone, except for the first letter and the genre (both the films are comedy). The film is about teenagers and those teenage years when everyone has crushes, infatuations, wants to grow up yet are being told by their parents about what to do and the rest.

Go Goa Gone is receiving lukewarm performance score whereas Gippi seems to have not impressed at all. Both the comedy films are laden with one liners. While the tempo of GGG is good, the same cannot be said for Gippi, which tends to drag on at times. Saif Ali Khan in GGG and Riya Vij in Gippi, both make a strong impact with their first shot.

Karan Johar borrows from the music of yesteryears in Gippi and we see teenagers dancing to tunes like Piya Tu and Chahe koi mujhe junglee kahe. The soundtrack of GGG, however, was making as much buzz as the trailers and it has kept up to the hype in the film. 'Khooni Monday,' seems to be a favourite as it received many claps and whistles. All in all, this weekend if you have nothing more meaningful to do then go and watch GO Goa Gone or Gippi. Both the films are light entertainment.
