If it's been one of those days where nothing went as planned and you just want to end the day on a good note by doing something exciting to get out of the bad mood, there's one thing you should totally avoid - watching 'Bernie'.
The film, based on author Subhash Bhende's story Jogin, is the story of a carefree Goan Catholic girl Bernie (Tejaswini) who is happy in her world. She has doting parents (Patekar and Tamhane), a caring boyfriend, concerned sister and many friends. Life seems to be going great guns until the day when her father takes ill. On his deathbed, he reveals a promise he made to god; a promise that changes Bernie's life. In order to honour her father's word, she agrees to become a nun and move away from the happening life she has had till date.
Quite simply put, the film can be summed up in three words - pretentious, precarious and preposterous. There are very few films that can attain that level, and Bernie does. It has a convoluted "plot" that is divided in so many sub-plots that you lose track of where it all started; it is technically not sound and the term 'bad acting' gets a whole new makeover courtesy the over-the-top performances.
Neelkanti Patekar seems to be the only natural actor in the lot but her role is secondary and there's not a lot of screen-time for her either. Tejaswini and Bhushan look great onscreen but acting-wise, the lesser said, the better.
Bernie exploits the Goan-stereotype to the T. Just to reinforce the fact that the Catholic community is involved, (bad) English is strewn liberally across the film, even where there's no need of it.
One wishes the film to end soon but there's disappointment on that aspect too. So, before and if you decide to catch up on Bernie, be warned.
