Desires gone wrong
21 November 2009 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

Aarzoo is an awful film. It is terribly made and more terribly written. The entire idea of the film is one old cliché, and the amateurish dialogues do not really help to elevate its level. The story follows a typical love triangle affected from past incidents (blah blah blah...), and the film takes inspiration from different Hindi films, for instance Sangam. The film stars Akshay Kumar, Madhuri Dixit and Saif Ali Khan, all of whom get let down by the poor and overly melodramatic script. I really wanted to see Kumar and Dixit working together, as they worked before partially in Yash Chopra's bright musical Dil To Pagal Hai and both were good, but here - their romance is unconvincing although it started well at the beginning. I also expected to see Akshay and Saif, who had played brothers or good friends many times in such entertaining films as Yeh Dillagi and Main Khiladi Tu Anari. Ironically there was an action scene in this one in which they fight with some gangsters in a club and you could here the famous tunes of both these films in the background. Anyway, all the actors fail here, though Madhuri does do a good job for the most part. The film's second half is simply unwatchable, and the final sequences are boring, cheesy and ridiculous. Aarzoo means "Wish", and I really wish I had not seen this one.
