Bad hair day
7 April 2000 | by (Manchester, England) – See all my reviews

A totally unoriginal debut by fed-up editor Subhash Sehgal. Sunny Deol and Apoorva Agnihotri play two brothers who are orphans (a cliche in the melodramatic world of Bollywood!). Sunny Deol has never looked at another girl before (strange, as he is in his thirties!) and has always been working very hard to bring up his younger brother. Apoorva is a college boy who meets college girl Mahima Choudhry. They both fall in love in one day! Predictably, Sunny Deol also falls in love with Mahima. Cue heartbreak, overdramatic declarations of love and choppy editing. Mahima marries Apoorva and they sing some songs. In a strange twist, Mahima ends up married to both men!

Direction is poor. The music is above average. The best song is 'Yaad Piya Ki Aane Lagi', which is ruined by a rubbish dance sequence. Sunny Deol seems embarrassed to play a romantic elder brother. Apoorva cannot act at all and fails at his attempts to do comedy. Mahima is a good actress but she has a bad hair day here. Her costumes are cheap and awful and her make-up is overloaded. Definitely not one of Mahima's best films (go and see Daag and Dil Kya Kare instead).

Film rating: 4.5 out of 10
