See The Hysterics Of Kajol.
31 December 2010 | by (Kenya) – See all my reviews

Joke: Girl: Whats worse than watching a movie with Kajol in it.

Boy: Watching a movie with Kajol in a double role.

In our Bollywood film industry known for making cheap remakes of Hollywood films, this film sums up that situation. I think you don't need a brain, looks or acting skills to become a Bollywood actor/actress.

Back to the film produced by none other than hammy actress Pooja Bhatt daughter of Mahesh Bhatt("Butt"). Incidentally the screenplay is written by Mahesh Bhatt, so you know he has stolen from ideas from a Hollywood film. Combination of two hams: father and daughter. Another "Butt" ugly film

This film also stars Robin Bhatt. Its seems the whole family threw in the sack of beans making this flick.

Also this film marked the Bollywood debut of a nerdy shrimp of a female director: Tanuja Chandra.

The most surprising thing to me is that Sanjay Dutt signed up for this film. It seems NO ONE WANTED TO PLAY THE PART SO.......you get the picture???

Plot(for people who saw the film and didn't understand it. Written in simple English): Sonia and Naina Sehgal (both played by Kajol) are twins. At the same time the police are hunting for a killer and rapist. The man Gokul Pandit (Ashutosh Rana) is a cold-blooded animal and has chosen Naina for his next target. However tragedy strikes when Gokul brutally kills Sonia. Naina is distraught and vows to hunt down Gokul. Gokul soon goes after Naina and she realizes she needs help to overcome her fear of him. With that she meets Suraj Singh Rathod (Sanjay Dutt), a retired and blind major and he helps her physically and mentally to defeat her fear of Gokul. After an argument Suraj refuses to meet Naina and she decides to go after Gokul alone without the help of the police or Suraj.....

Pros:

1.Good music by legendary playback singers Asha Bhosle, Shankar Mahadevan, Lata Mangesjkar, Udit Narayan, Kumar Sanu, Jagjit Singh.

2.Ashutosh Rana is awesome as usual.

3.Also stars Sanjay Dutt as a bonus.

Cons:

1.Poorly shot rape scenes (full censorship as usual). This is a rape film and they don't show the rapes???

2. This film stars Kajol in her most hysterical role.

3. Sanjay Dutt ISN'T nude for this flick (sorry gals).

4. Kajol ISN'T nude for this flick (sorry guys, you can STOP the preparations for a good night's SHAG).

In conclusion: Better to buy the AUDIO CD rather than wasting your money on the VCD/DVD.

Score: this isn't a cricket or football match....butt....4/10.
