Tabu as she's seldom seen
3 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I really don't want to say TOO much about this movie because a lot depends upon plot twists. If this movie had an English title, it should be "The Accidental Bigamist". Its the story of a police inspector who, due to circumstances beyond his control, becomes the husband of two women. When he realizes it, he panics about what will happen when the two women find out the situation, so for a while he tries to be two different guys, while two of his enemies plot to expose him.

I got this movie for Tabu and Nagarjuna. I read that they are old buddies from years ago in Hyderabad, so I started wondering what kind of movie they'd make together. Well, this movie they made is TOTALLY un-Tabu. This character is so much unlike what I've seen her play that its a total stitch. She is such a great comedian. I guess I should have known that from Hera Pheri, but this one seals it. One of the best parts of the movie is when she, as a police inspector, opens the movie with the typical Telugu action scene, kicking the crap out of a gang of bad guys. I saw that and said "Awright, Tabu!" I'm getting to like these action scenes with actresses like Shilpa, Tabu, and Shreya Reddy more and more. Next up, Sushmita! Anyway, Nag is Vikrant, Tabu is Archana, both are inspectors in Hyderabad and rivals. But underneath it all, Vikrant is determined that he will marry NO ONE but Archana, which delights his father so much he decides to stopping getting drunk.

And beyond that I'll say nothing except I thoroughly enjoyed this movie, including seeing Tabu doing Telugu-style dance for the first time ever. Among other things, the movie is totally self-conscious and characters make comments on the progress of the plot all the time, which is another funny part.

Anyway, for me a BIG 9 of 10.
