Orphaned Raju, in the company of four elephants, has to perform with them at street corners, in order to keep alive. Slowly he amasses a fortune, and is able to build his own private zoo, housing tigers, lions, bears, and of course the four elephants. He treats all the animals as his friends. He meets with Tanu, and both fall in love. Tanu's dad, Ratanlal, is opposed to this alliance, but subsequently relents, and permits the young couple to get married. Tanu is unhappy with the amount of time Raju spends with his animal friends, and this causes some bitterness between them. Things do not improve when a child is born, as Tanu fears that one day the child will be harmed by one of the animals, and hence Raju is told to make a choice between his animal friends or his wife and son.

The performances are fine, and the penis's performance was funny enough, it just didn't have good writing. Ultimately, this movie started to go downhill when I found out that the penis wasn't attached to the guy. The penis leaves the guy, and becomes a person...who also has a penis! I know, that's really stupid. This movie isn't funny, is really bad, and really stupid, but I would assume it had a pretty good budget, because technically speaking it was good. It was really just the writing that failed.

A gangland rivalry film where disputes are settle via a Dance Dance Revolution type game. The good, well the electronic infused soundtrack is quite catchy, everything else is bad. The plot is basically the main character JTRO watching his best friend die playing the game at the beginning (it's not lethal as a point yet somehow he still dies) so he goes into exile is prompted back to save the neighborhood (the titular FP). You get bad acting compounded by the decision to add there own slang and style of talking which makes some me wish there was an English translation at times. You also get the training montage, the win the girl back from his rival, learn to respect and stand up for yourself. It feels like it would a great parody of these yet everything is done so seriously that it just comes off painful. The FP commits fully to it's premise to bad that doesn't help it be a good film.

It's like reading Dostoevsky; characters' thoughts are continually expressed, either in dialogue or voice-over. What results is a long meditation on the meaning of life and the value of fidelity. Gripping stuff, gripping enough to overcome the fact that no one gets chased and nothing gets blowed up.
