Great offering by a master of cinema.
9 April 2003 | by (Boston) – See all my reviews

Ram Gopal Varma movies are always interesting to watch as they usually offer something different yet entertaining. This particular movie starts of as a routine love story as Siddhu (Fardeen Khan) and Anu (Urmila Matondkar) meet, fight, hate and miraculously fall in love somehow. Thankfully all this excitement happens in the first few reels.

Before the two lovebirds can confess to their parents, Anu's family decides to go on vacation in a jungle somewhere. Siddhu, being the hopeless romantic follows his 'Mehbooba' into the depths of greenness. This is where things get interesting. One fine day the family and their tour group decide to go on a safari. While riding through the jungle, bandits or whatever those dirty, smelly ruffians are called attack the bus, kill a few people and kidnap the rest. Siddhu dearest is duly notified and distressed as any proper hero should be.

Here the police and all the useles people come in. Here we find out the head smelly bandit is this hairy guy called Durga Narayan. They try to do all kinds of stuff but aren't successful. After some bargaining, the bandit fellows release all the prisoners except 1, guess who? Anu of course. So it seems Hairy Durga has become smitten with her charming screams. Now back to Siddhu dearest who gets really really worried this time on not seeing Anu among the freed people and decides to take matters into his own hands.

So then he finds her and escapes into the jungle where they are followed by Durga and his smelly comrades. Now they are stuck in the jungle, not knowing where to go.

The movie is just fantastic. Enough thrills and chills to excite any viewer, its thoroughly entertaining. Fardeen and Urmila do their part dutifuly. I must say that Fardeen has improved significantly but still has to work on his extremely fake laugh. Sushant Singh as Hairy Durga is quite hairy but more importantly quite creepy. Never heard of this guy before this movie, but he was good. Watch him in Raj Kumar Santoshi's The Legend of Bhagat Singh, he is awesome.

Also notable is the background music, Sandeep Chowta as usual is brilliantly chilling. The jungle is captured beautifully by the camera. Overall, a great product, definately give it a watch. If you like good entertaining cinema, you'll love this one.
