Shirish Kunder’s direction is no better than his script because his narration fails to involve the audience. He has been unable to make the drama believable and his comedy also falls flat on its face. Music (Gau­rav Dagaonkar and G.V. Prakash Kumar) is good. The ‘Kafirana’ and ‘Sing raja’ songs are well-tuned. A couple of other songs are also quite alright. Lyrics (Shirish Kunder) are okay. Song picturisations (by Farah Khan) could’ve been much better. Background music (Shirish Kunder) adds little to the proceedings.

Parvez-Feroz’s action and stunts are functional. Sudeep Chatterjee and Anay Goswami’s camerawork is nice. Sets (Samir Chanda and Shashank Tere) are appropriate. Editing (Shirish Kunder) leaves something to be desired.

On the whole, Joker is a disaster what with almost nil entertainment value in it. It will go down in box-office history as a colossal waste of time, money and efforts.
