Storyline

Suraj Thakur (Aftab Shivdasani) is one of three children in the Thakur household. He has a brother, Prem (Zulfi Sayed), and a sister, Suman (Saadhika). Suraj does not measure up to his dad's (Govind Namdeo) expectations and is often spoken to at home. Suraj wants to be rich quick, and marry one of the most beautiful girls in the world. His dreams become reality when he meets with Sheetal (Yukta Mookhey), who is a multi-millionaire business-woman. Though Suraj has no affection for Sheetal, he decides he can get really wealthy if he marries Sheetal. But Sheetal spurns him, and as a result Suraj spins a web of deception that forces Sheetal to marry him, and at the same time, teach his father a lesson for criticising him all the time. But Suraj is in for a surprise, as fate has other plans for him. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

a horrible film!
4 March 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Pyaasa is one of the typically bad Bollywood films I've seen. It marks the debut of the former Miss World and beauty queen Yukta Mookhey. so i was anticipating its release badly. I had a hunch that Yukta's debut wouldn't be too great. because none of the beauty queens' (aishwarya or sushmita's)debut flicks did a remarkable business at the box office. Upon its release, I was proved right.

The story is too typical with a love triangle combined with a revenge plot. Suraj (Aftab Shivdasani) dreams of becoming a rich guy some day. With the arrival of a multi millionaire businesswoman sheetal (yukta) his dreams turn into reality. Suraj also falls in love with her. but she always rejects his advances. why? we get to know later. actually, sheetal's father was cheated by one of his employees and is usurped of his business and property. to take revenge, sheetal employs suraj as a weapon to subdue her enemies. but she falls in love with the employees's son prem (zulfi syed, a wooden actor ever) and suraj is left heart-broken. what happens next is nothing worth writing about.

Yukta fails on all accounts. she can't emote through her eyes and she must do something about her diction. she is pretty (that's obvious because she was a beauty queen) but that's not enough to become a successful actress. Aftab is horrible as usual. he is an actor who doesn't have a definite style to his acting. and the result is always lousy acting and hamming. Zulfi syed is one of the worst debutante to have been around bollywood. he cannot emote and the less said about him the better.

the music was pretty decent. 'milti hai jhukti hai' was the best track in the film. the rest were passable.

avoid!!!!!
