Story: This movie story is completely based on mystery, comedy, and suspense. Detective Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson, a new case start when bank money got replaced with fake money. Now Sherlock and Watson go for a journey of finding the robber also recover all money.

Movie Review: If you are a fan of a serious suspense mystery movie then this is not for you. Instead of adding this movie to is a suspense thriller movie, I add it first in comedy movies. Not like all other Sherlock movies, this has a unique style of telling the story. It tells you a suspense movie in a comedy manner. Every scene collects some comedy humor. The movie starts with Sherlock and Watson solved the new case. Not like other Sherlock movies in this movie you see Sherlock as a dumb person and Watson as an intelligent person. Yes, this sounds strange but this is very funny. In this movie, Sherlock solves all cases with the help of Watson and takes all credits. The conversation between Sherlock and Watson is very funny. The fights between Sherlock and Watson will make you laugh. It will make you smile whenever Sherlokh does dumb things. I compare the Sherlock character from this movie with Pink Panther, movie character Inspector Jacques Clouseau. Both characters look totally familiar with each other, they make you smile by doing dumb things. The main story of the movie starts when bank money got robber and all money replaced with fake money. Now this case will be assigned to Sherlock. If you thinking that it just has comedy flavor, then you are wrong this movie also has suspense, mystery flavor.

Step by step movie made very nicely, every scene looks logical. A simple looking robbery turns into a good big mystery. You will see old Sherlokh villain Professor Moriarty, back in this movie. In between the movie you will get stunned with the plan of Professor Moriarty. As usual like all other Sherlokh movies after long mystery, everything gets settled. But in this movie, Doctor Watson gets all the credit to find the robber. This movie changes the logic of Sherlock movies, in which Sherlokh was an intelligent person, and Watson was the helper. You will see Watson as Holmes and Holmes as Watson in this movie. LOL, this is very crazy and funny. Michael Caine as a Sherlock did a wonderful job Ben Kingsley also did great work. All other actors acting looks professional. Cinematography and Direction of the movie are very well done, all scenes, story well managed. Step by step story will go without confusing you. Music seems to me little loud, but it's early 80s swag.

Positive points of the movie:

Well, this has a unique and mystery story. I think the uniqueness of the movie is a plus point. The comedy stuff and making Sherlokh dumb, making Watson as intelligent is very unique. That is very very funny, if you are a fan of comedy movies then you going to love this movie.

Negative points of the movie:

Overall I loved this movie, but I found this movie a little short also it has little less mystery element. I will be happier if has more mystery moments.

Overall My Rating: 

Just because of missing more mystery moments I drop 1 star. But overall I happily give it 04 out of 05 stars:)


4.0
