Storyline

Dina Nath is honored by the Indian Government, which is televised live. While receiving the honors, Dina Nath informs the Government that his village is still without electricity, and he is promised that electricity will be provided in his village immediately. And electricity is provided in the village. Dina Nath's son, Kanji, who is in Mumbai, hears of this and returns to the village along with a C-Band ten foot satellite dish and a super flat stereo television. When the satellite is set-up, the villagers are thrilled by the TV shows. This leads to the village priest complaining to Chotey Thakur Rudra Pratap Singh that the villagers are turning away from his temple and worship. Rudra is not concerned as he himself has a TV set in his home. But when the priest informs Rudra that his sister, Kesar and Kanji are in love, Rudra makes a threat to destroy Kanaji and all of the village in the presence of a TV crew filming the whole drama - live worldwide.

What idiot wrote the script for this movie?
7 September 2003 | by (San Jose, CA, US) – See all my reviews

I thought this movie was absolutely terrible. The whole story revolves around a TV that is brought to some Godforsaken village and is making hooligans out of the people. Ok, I thought it was rather pathetic how the TV is the protagonist of the film. Lara Dutta is just ruining her career, which went off to a decent start with Andaaz, by choosing to act in a film like this. Abhishek just lost a lot of his credibility that he regained with lots of effort in Main Prem Ki Diwani Hoon. Hopefully, he'll win it back in Kuch Naa Kaho. Anyone who watches this movie will feel like their intelligence is being insulted. The Saiyaan song is the only good part of the movie.
