God awful movie
13 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of worst movies I've ever seen. I thought naseeruddin shah, anupam kher, pooja bhatt & Shah Rukh Khan(well he was a better actor those days) and a movie directed by Mahesh Bhatt can't be that bad. But boy was I mistaken. It was the most idiotic movie I have seen. Really bad! Don' waste your time attempting to watch this movie. Instead go for a walk or even take a nap.

OK, I need to continue writing in order to submbit this. The script is written by a 5th grader. Why would someone like Mahesh Bhatt who actually is a decent film director want to make this movie? Had he lost his mind? Why would an actor as talented as Anupam Kher want this role of a buffoon? This was the same man who did Saranksh. Naseeruddin Shah despite everything manages to have class.

Why does Bollywood churn out these idiotic movies? It was boring, cerebrally challenged and didn't even have the usual galmor of a regular Hindi film.
