Storyline

Niranjan and Nandini Khanna are very wealthy and live a luxurious life. They have an only son, Rahul Khanna, who has nothing but time on his hands and is bent upon getting into mischief and trouble with the law by racing in his sports car with his close buddies. Usually, he finds his way out by bribing traffic cops. Rahul's luck runs out one time when he wrecks several vehicles while speeding. This time the offense is too serious and he is arrested. DCP Bhosle wants Rahul to do time, but reporter Neha Sengupta wants a unique punishment for Rahul: to do community service in an home for senior citizens. Judge K.R.P. Murthy likes the idea of this unique sentence, and sentences an unrepenting Rahul to a senior citizen's home out in the country. Nandini would prefer that Rahul do the time, and has no reservations of him serving this sentence. Sparks fly when Rahul is introduced to the residents of the senior citizens' home. He refuses to assist anyone, until Prajapati, one of the residents... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

A Pleasant Surprise!
6 August 2002 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I had absolutely no expectations while slipping Shararat into my video player, I thought it would be yet another worn out tale of perhaps a teeny-bopper romance trying to be an eternal love story. The beginning did not disappoint me, Abhishek Bachchan(Rahul Khanna) speeding along in his fast car, involved in an inexplicable race with another gang etc..

He gets thrown in jail, and only then does the story begin to unfold. The judge, nudged on by an ambitious reporter Neha(Hrishita Bhatt), wanting a unique punishment for him, sends him to perform community service.. and that too, at an Elderly Peoples ashram! His indignation knew no bounds, and with disgust written all over him, he sets of with Neha(wanting her scoop!) to perform this torturous penance. He finds the place exactly as he anticipated, and doesn't hesitate to turn his nose up at everything.

But in spite of his rude and disrespectful ways, the elders accept him, and try and get him involved.. all except Prajapati Saab, Amrish Puri.. a cranky and snooty man who made his millions in mining. I must admit I rather enjoyed the scenes between Puri and Bachchan.. had me laughing more than once.! Rahul begins to mellow.. but can he actually change all his ways?

Rather enjoyable a movie, very different from any other Indian movie I have seen. A lot of people will consider this movie rubbish, but if you're looking for a change from the running-around-trees-in-wet-clothes scenes, this is a good choice. And the undaunting spirit of the people at the Ashram provide good fun along the way.

Music was ok, a couple of decent songs thrown in.. overall a 6/10

That's my tuppence.
