crazzyyy!!!
10 March 2002 | by (Troy, NY) – See all my reviews

I read reviews form a lot of people and places.. and most of them said this movie was pretty bad.. but i think most of the people are looking at this movie from too narrow of a mindset..

this movie is about abhay and vijay.. abhay is suffering from schizophrenia which becomes even worse after he starts experimenting with all kinds of psychedelic drugs.. this movie takes you to journey through the delusioned and schizophrenic mind of abhay.. and tries to show you what is going on in there..

all what i can say is.. this is one of those rare indian movies which might not be for everyone to see.
