Storyline

Krishnakant Mathur (Aftab Shivdasani) alias "kittu", works in a restaurant, which is located right opposite the bunglow of famous movie actress, Mallika (Urmilla Matondkar).

Before he could finish speaking with her, he is rudely interrupted by Tolluram, Manisha's uncle (Govind Namdeo), who insults and humiliates him and tells him to leave. Kittu is confused at this, and gets appalled and concerned about Mallika, when he learns that her life is being controlled by her uncle, aunt and cousin sister. One day he witnesses her uncle beating her up, he breaks into her house, assaults the uncle, and abducts Mallika. The next day, there is furore in the media when everyone learns that an actress has been abducted. The police get involved. Kittu decides to take Mallika to his home to his parents, and does so. He hides her in ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Believe...
28 October 1999 | by (Jodhpur, Rajasthan,India) – See all my reviews

Every once in a while a film comes along that makes you believe in dreams all over again. As Paulo Coelho rightly says, somewhere along the line, most of us decide that dreams are not meant to be true. Well, this movie proves otherwise... and how! It is a movie for those young at heart - and my mother has seen it thrice!! Simply put, it is one long joy-ride, with wonderful music, exotic and virgin locales and just the right amount of characters. The best thing about the film is the willing suspension of disbelief that is required of any film-goer these days by the film-maker. Ram Gopal Varma takes care of our disbelief, and in his hands, it starts turning into that elusive 'belief'. That is why the film probably has an appeal only for those who are willing to give life a chance. If you believe life is just what happens to you while you are making other plans, I would recommend a dosage of MAST thrice a day! It will change the way you look at things; if you give it a fair chance. That is what a film should be - almost too good to be true, yet with that sweetly scented whiff of belief that stays with you long after you leave the movie-hall. A simple story about the things we consider the most complicated, brilliantly and sensitively handled and told. A modern fairy tale. A small 'big-movie'!!! Totally 'mast' baba!!! Sorry, but can't write anymore; have to catch the night show of the movie. Joining me, anyone???
