Burlesque

A glitzy musical

Small town girl Ali (Aguilera) quits waiting tables in Iowa and leaves for Los Angeles to try her luck in singing. But it turns out to be a disaster. However, after getting job in the Burlesque Lounge, a popular nightclub, owned by Tess (Cher), Ali’s life hits centrestage even as her employer tries to fend for her property. In the burlesque there is plenty of skin, greed, love, hatred and also consolation. How do the stars play their games is what will make their day in the end.

“Burlesque” is a glitzy and pompous musical and we fall in love with Cher’s performance which is almost natural. We also get a couple of beautiful songs from Aguilera. Despite these, the film lacks good dialogue and an engaging plot. Most good musicals have songs that strike the emotions of the audience and this “Burlesque” lacks what “Chicago” and
“Showgirls” had — good lyrics. The show gets over as soon as reel ends leaving you hungry for more fun.
