Go Goa Gone is a 2013 Bollywood horror-comedy film, directed by Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK. It stars Saif Ali Khan, Kunal Kemmu, and Vir Das in the lead roles, alongside Anand Tiwari, Puja Gupta, and Suparn Verma in supporting roles. The film follows three friends who go on a trip to Goa, only to get stranded on an island infested with zombies.

The movie opens with the three friends, Hardik (Kunal Kemmu), Luv (Vir Das), and Bunny (Anand Tiwari), who are slackers and smoking weed to pass the time. Hardik receives an invitation to a rave party in Goa, hosted by Russian mafia lord Boris (Saif Ali Khan). The trio convinces their boss, the stoner-junkie Rajat (Puja Gupta), to fund their trip to Goa, and they set out on their adventure.

Upon their arrival in Goa, the trio attends Boris's rave party, where they consume a strange drug. The next morning, Hardik and Luv wake up to find that the people around them have turned into zombies. They reunite with Bunny and Rajat, who was not at the party, and together they try to survive the zombie apocalypse that has engulfed the island.

As they fight their way through the hordes of zombies, they discover that the outbreak was caused by a new designer drug called "Mantis," which was being manufactured and tested on the island before its release into the global market. Boris, who was behind the drug's production, plans to use the virus as a weapon to rule the world. Whether the group can stop Boris and his cronies, and escape the island alive, forms the rest of the story.

Go Goa Gone is an entertaining movie with an engaging storyline that blends horror, humor, and action genres to create a unique cinematic experience. The film tackles the zombie genre from a fresh perspective while incorporating elements of buddy comedies and action flicks. The script is cleverly written, filled with hilarious dialogues, and does not take itself too seriously. The performances of the main cast are commendable, especially Saif Ali Khan, who plays the eccentric character of Boris with conviction.

The film's direction by Raj and DK is commendable, especially the way they have created the island's atmosphere, which is the perfect setting for a zombie movie. The movie's cinematography, sound design, and special effects are impressive, which elevates the overall experience. The soundtrack of the movie is another highlight, with tracks like "Slowly Slowly" and "Khoon Choos Le" becoming popular among the youth.

The movie also explores the theme of the generation gap, as the older Boris represents the capitalist, profit-driven, and morally corrupt society that exploits the younger generation, who are disillusioned, unemployed, and searching for a purpose. It also touches upon contemporary issues like drug abuse, drug trafficking, and the consequences of unchecked experimentation.

However, some parts of the movie do drag, and the portrayal of women is regressive, stereotypical, and somewhat problematic. The female characters are either overly sexualized or used as props for male gaze, which takes away from the film's progressive themes.

In conclusion, Go Goa Gone is an entertaining and unique horror-comedy that puts a refreshing spin on the zombie genre. The film's humor, engaging story, and quirky characters make it a must-watch for movie buffs who want to experience something different. While the movie is not without its flaws, it makes up for them with its overall charm and entertainment value.

Go Goa Gone is a 2013 comedy. It has received mostly positive reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 6.6.
