Storyline

Gone are the days (and the movies) when the Indian daughter-in-law stood by silently and got abused and slapped around by her mother-in-law, sisters-in-law, et al. Here, the daughter-in-law has not only her cruel and intimidating mom-in-law, but also her equally cruel, sister-in-law by the hair, and some may say, well under her thumb. A glaring and perhaps a light-hearted look at the evil of dowry, and lack of which still does result in cruelties being inflicted even on well educated and cultured women in modern yet secular and tradition-bond India.

Ridiculous, just ridiculous!
31 August 2009 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

To make a very good film takes a lot of time and effort. But judging by this cheapo, to make a bad film is much more difficult. This disastrous B-grade "film" is easily on par with all those unwatchable B-grade films of the 1980s. Rani plays a young bride and repeats her character from her debut film, Raja Ki Ayengi Baraat. And she gives a performance that is so dreadful that every fan of hers would start hating her. There are some court scenes which are incredibly pathetic, with fight scenes in the court (Yes yes!!). All the characters are caricaturish, the dialogues are as unbearable as the random lines you would find in any comic strip of the 1950s. The music is equally forgettable. Don't watch this, and if you're a Rani fan, thrice as much!
