Storyline

Mira (Neha) comes from a very wealthy family, however, she wants to get married to Akash Sharma (Jatin Grewal), who is not so wealthy. Against the wishes of her mother and brother, Mira gets married to Akash. The bad memories are left behind when Mira's family finally "forgives" them, at the birth of baby-boy, Rahul (Yash Pathak). With the family with such a acrimonious past, coming together, their marriage deteriorates, to such an extent that they have to involve the police and the courts for purposes of custody. The only obstacle coming between the couple from getting married again to different people are marred by Rahul, who is unable to accept his parents' divorce. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

A watchable, yet flawed family movie.
8 September 2002 | by (Switzerland) – See all my reviews

"Rahul" is no Bollywood highlight, but it stays watchable during its 153 minutes running time. The set up is the more boring, yet the more charming part of the film. It introduces us to the title character, a 5 year old boy called "Rahul" who lives with his father Akash (former model Jatin Greval). Those early minutes show us how much Akash loves his son - and how much that guy works out. The girls in the audiences will surely appreciate Greval's perfectly structured body but one starts wondering whether this is supposed to be a workout video or a movie. Well, anyway, there's one dance and song number in which we see Akash and his ex-wife Mira (Netha) fooling around on the beach and in the rain. It really pays of there that the two are so great looking. It borders on some sort of textile commercial, but it sure is pleasing to the eyes.

The story continues and we learn that Akash and Mira are divorced. Akash tells Rahul that his mother was a very bad person and that's why they separated. The film doesn't reveal if this is the truth, though. Rahul of course decides one day that he wants to find out for himself. He looks for his mother, finds her and visits her without Akash knowing about it. She is not evil at all and tells her son the truth about the divorce.

Now, the problems start. Not just for Rahul, but also for the film. One reason for that is that we now lose all emotional contact. Both parents are selfish and not fully likable. The other problem is the turnaround in Akash's character. It is unbelievable that the film now portrays him as some sort of minor bad guy, when before, we saw him caring for his boy and loving him with all his heart. The film wants us to believe, that a father alone cannot be enough for a child. Of course we all want that every child gets 2 parents, but sometimes, fate decides otherwise and single-parents try their very best to support their children. So does Akash. But the film wants to be conservative. It wants to promote marriage even if it means throwing the characters and the plot around.

The ending is the most contrived in a series of contrived events. It's not terrible, but tiresome. Granted, you have to shed some tears at the end, but the film doesn't fully deserve it. Overall, I'd say you can watch it for good performances, some sexy scenes in the beginning and a story for the heart. But don't expect to be blown away. My rating:

6/10
