Shri Bhramma is unhappy with Yamraj and his assistant, Chitragupt, as they have misplaced a book or prophecy called "Bhavishya Vani", and asks them to go down to Earth and find the book within 30 days or else they will lose their status in heaven and will be forced to live as mortals on Earth. The two descend to Earth, and find out that the book is in the possession of a man named Suraj, who is unwilling to give up the book as he has read the prophecy about his mother's dying. This refusal is catastrophic as Yamraj cannot plan anyone's death, and no one will be permitted to die unless and until the book comes in his possession. At the same time there is an evil man named Chota Ravan who is trying to possess the book in order to spread his control over Bombay. Written by rAjOo (

A C-grade Movie With Some Funny Moments Thanks To Raveena Tandon and Kader Khan
30 May 2010 | by (Fraggle Rock) – See all my reviews

Made in typical C-grade style, K. Muralimohana Rao's 'Taqdeerwala' is a typical campy comedy. The length may exceed over 2.5 hours but much of it is very funny especially the sequences of Kader Khan and Raveena Tandon (which, unfortunately, aren't that many). The action sequences and dramatic sequences (especially all the crap Suraj does to buy the palace). The special effects are laughably bad. Most of the dialogues in the comedic scenes are hilarious while the rest is boring cliché. The songs are okay at best. 'Mera Dil Deewana' is a foot-tapping number visualized on the beautiful Raveena Tandon while the other songs are forgettable. Venkatesh is annoying as the naive Suraj. I get that he's supposed to be naive but why does he have to act like a kid in every single scene? As the angels of death, Kader Khan and Asrani are a riot. Raveena Tandon is hilarious and provides some of the best laugh-out-loud moments of the movie. Her Lily is one of the funniest film characters. It's a pity that she has a small role. Reema Lagoo plays the typical Maa in distress. To sum it up, 'Taqdeerwala' is a bad movie with some fun moments.
