Quite watchable but flawed and unoriginal
23 August 2010 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

Khoj, like most Indian movies of its genre, is unoriginal and the script is generally not very well written. It has its moments of suspense and as a thriller it may be quite a nice watch for the family, but something is the narration is overly exaggerated and overdone. The suspense was marred by songs which were very misplaced and irrelevant to the proceedings. Also, there are numerous plot holes and the script seems very contrived, unconvincing and at times forced. The movie stars Rishi Kapoor, who is quite okay but goes overboard in many instances. A beautiful Kimi Katkar plays a young woman who pretends to be his wife. Naseeruddin Shah and Danny Denzongpa do well in their respective parts. The ending is very melodramatic and sugarcoated. The moments the great twist is revealed is quite surprising but it gave me a strange feel of much ado about nothing. Why the police would do what they did is mystifying and unintentionally funny. Khoj is overall a rather poorly written movie, but as said, would suffice for lovers of Hindi movies if they could overlook the many of its flaws.
