17 February 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

A cleverly made re-incarnation story. The music in the movie is very good, but the story seems to be an old one.A person who has been killed by his lover in his previous birth has taken a new birth to seek his past revenge. The movie is very similar to mehbooba(1976), which is starred by RajeshKhanna and HemaMalini.If the role of Premnath would have been done by PremChopra it would been better for the movie.You can watch the movie only for its music.I would give 4 out of 10 for this movie.RishiKapoor plays charming music in this movie and he is well good also in the emotional scenes. SimiGarewal has played her role in a cruel manner and she scores in the climax scenes.
