Don Saif, does not work!
9 November 2009 | by See all my reviews

Vikram Bhatt in his career made some good and bad films exploring into various genres like Action, Comedy, Horror etc . I believe this is his only masala film he made and sadly he fails! The biggest letdown of the film is its script, basically there isn't one. One could say Vikram Bhatt was making up the story while he was making the film. Riots, gang wars, corrupt politicians, smooth criminals, romantic boons etc basically the film has not nothing new or different one could watch.

Keeping it short, the film fails in its music side (one song may work), the story and the direction, the acting is incredibly laughable. Even Mithun's B grade films are more worth your money than this.

The casting is okay, meaning for the time it was released and for the characters portrayed. Saif, being a rising talent in them days who was know to be a talent when it came to romance, tries to pull off the gangster look. Saif could not do it. Sadly, this is weaker side of the film. Atul Agnihotri gives superb support, in fact, he is probably the best thing the film has to offer. Kajol does not impress. The songs in the film are okay at best, the only one that makes an impression is 'Tham Zara'.

Overall, a poor product from Vikram Bhatt like a lot of others he has given us. The film had a lot of patch work and many things that could of made it work. It works for just two things, Atul Agnihotri and one of the songs, thats all. Don't waste you time on this one, its not worth it.
