An Average Akshay Kumar Starrer!
30 August 2015 | by (Trinidad and Tobago) – See all my reviews

Akshay Kumar paired with the beautiful Sonali Bendre & fond memories of the hit song 'Haseena Gori Gori' gave me a good reason to want to give this film a look.

Expecting this to be more of an action film akin to Akshay's earlier hits such as 'Sabse Bada Khiladi' & 'Khiladiyon Ka Khiladi', it was definitely a bit disappointing. From its weak plot & loads of overacting to it's mediocre action & bland comedy scenes.

Sonali Bendre's beauty is mesmerizing, however her character in the film is that of an atrocious young woman who traps Inspector Ram Yadav (Akshay Kumar) into falling in love with her by deceptive & manipulative means.

Akshay Kumar is not seen in any breathtaking action stunts in this film, there are some bland comedy scenes but overall a mediocre performance with some fair action sequences.

Amrish Puri as the villain 'Appa Rao' does not give any great performance compared to some of his other films, but rather lots of overacting.

Mohnish Bahl's character of 'Janardan' (Appa Rao's son) is typical of his acting roles & some scenes with him can be considered a bit unnecessary due to the lack of a stronger plot.

Kader Khan is refreshing to see, however there are no comedy scenes from him, as his character in this film is that of a serious one as 'Dr. Khan Hindustani' which he does play well.

The soundtrack by Rajesh Roshan is average, with two notably hit songs worth mentioning:

The first is the memorable hit 'Haseena Gori Gori' with vocals by Udit Narayan & Alka Yagnik which is a copy of Shaggy & Ravon's 90's Reggae hit: 'In The Summer Time'. Picturisation of the song with African themed elements & Sonali's dances & costuming are well done & remain memorable till today.

The second is 'Ai Deewane Dil' sung by Kumar Sanu & Alka Yagnik which features a great melody & well picturised again with Sonali's outfits & dances being the center of attraction.

Overall, an average film that you can afford to pass up on, unless you are either a staunch Akshay Kumar or Sonali Bendre fan.
