Storyline

When an newlywed American couple goes to India on their honeymoon, little do they realize that they were about to go on the adventure of their life time. A ruby, back from the ages of the Indian Maharajas has been stolen and placed in the backpack of the Americans. When the bad guys realize this, they kidnap the wife.. Now the husband and his Indian friend (played by a famous Tamil Indian actor) must go out to save the wife. But along the way, they are confronted with many challenges, like the Indian bad guys who steal the ruby from them! Overall a great movie, especially if you've ever been to Tamil India! And even if you haven't, here's your chance to see what an American action movie can be like when filmed on the other side of the world! Written by Murthy <mmathi@cctr.umkc.edu>

Rajini Owned!
11 January 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Saw this movie when i was about 8, at the time it felt like a Grade A movie but refreshing my memory now it's a C Class movie at it's best!.. although RAJINI was amazing in it the movie had a childish treasure hunt story line able to be thought up at a coffee break. Even at that time coping with the horrible acting of the "Americans"(namely Brett Stimely and Anna Nicholas the main cast) Rajini still stood out and gave the movie a comical twist despite his co-stars in bloodstone. overall the story, the acting( except Rajini(I'm a fan thus there's a possible bias)), casting was just horrible. Would recommend for a Rajini fan but not for a movie fan.
