Storyline

Arjun (Govinda) lives a charmed life, surrounded by the family he loves and working at his family's thriving business. Then he meets Pooja (Manisha Koirala), and his life gets even better. The two quickly fall in love. But when a mysterious attempt to kill the happy couple alerts them to the presence of danger, their troubles are only beginning, and soon Arjun's brother (Rahul Roy) is killed in an accident no one could have foreseen. Pooja is mistakenly convicted of murder, and Arjun must save her while he keeps up his family responsibilities, but his father soon meets a cruel end as well. Now, on the run from both the police and the mysterious criminals, Arjun and Pooja work to expose the truth while evading a fate at the hands of either. Written by hEmRaJ (gavin_coolhgr@hotmail.com)

silly, hackneyed, boring, predictable
13 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Not even Manisha as the errand girl of the mountains and Govinda as the race car driver could save this film. Every one acted really badly. Paresh Rawal should never do villainous roles. If I can predict every next plot twist or scene then why watch the film? The suspense/surprise was non-existent, music bad, and there was nothing to keep me engaged after the first 50 minutes. Even the trademark Govinda dances were absent. The music was bad. There was a large woman chasing after Govinda for the first 30 minutes or so. Why was Manisha running errands for the whole town? Well, Johny Lever was OK - that has to count for something. The 50 minutes I spent on this film were utterly wasted.
