What a waste
6 November 2002 | by (Boston Mass.) – See all my reviews

The Ram Gopal Varma name in the credits sets up expectations that are left unsatisfied.

The script and characters are all needlessly unrealistic. For example, Arvind and Lakshmi (Oberoi and Mali) live in a vacuum, set off on a road trip to nowhere in their SUV with a pack of biscuits, and don't display much emotion, either toward one another or toward anything else. It's hard to identify with either of these characters. The scenery is out of the world, too: petrol pumps spring up from nowhere next to lonely stretches of desert highway as if the landscape were the western United States.

Great locations, photography, and sound fail to dress up this dog. I can't believe at the time of posting this comment on IMDB that seventeen people have voted an average of 7.4!
