Just as good as expected!
2 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I just watched Kartavya yesterday and I must say, it was pretty good! Although the beginning was a bit slow, it was still fun to see Juhi and Sanjay together! Nothing really serious in the first half, just loaded with lots of fun and dance! Simply sit back and enjoy! Later on, things start picking up when Karan's(Sanjay Kapoor) mother has a heart attack after being insulted by the mayor. It is before she dies that Sanjay discovers to his horror that she wasn't his real mother. He is told that his actual mother, Gayatri(Aruna Irani) lives in Sundernagar. So he sets out to find her and is curious why she hadn't taken care of him. When reaching Sundernagar he comes to know the sad story of his mother's life. Her stepbrother had killed her husband and had her thrown in an insane asylum (although she wasn't the least bit crazy), just in the greed for wealth. Karan is angry at these wrongdoers and feels it is his duty to finish them off. Will Gayatri return to her normal state of mind? Will Karan be able to take revenge on his enemies? Watch KARTAVYA to find out! Now, on to the music and acting... excellent performances were given by both Juhi and Sanjay! Juhi once again manages to pull off another comical performance while the anger in Sanjay's eyes are truly visible. The songs were nice, just plain fun and sometimes simply random! All in all, the film deserves an 8/10 :)
