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.

Big disappointment!!!
9 September 2003 | by (New Jersey) – See all my reviews

There were lot of expectations from this film and all went down the drain as every moment of the movie I saw. Expectations reaches sky high because Apoorva Lakhia, assistant director of Lagaan an epic movie would atleast make a good effort for his debut film as a director. This was not true, film was a complete waste of time of its viewers. There was no story, Abhishek was shaky on most of the sequences, he still needs to work on his acting. It wasn't abhishek or Lakhia who ruined the movie. In the whole movie had a weak topic tell a story on supported by a weak screenplay. 80 to 70 percent of the movie was about villagers sitting in front of a tv set and acting like a primates. This is not believable for me because i live in 2003 in a culture where technology is very advanced. Lakhia really tried to give it a lagaan look and even in its songs he tried to give it a Lagaan kind of feel but the maker terribly failed in all aspects of making a film good. I wouldn't say that film wouldn't be better if somebody else was directing or if Vivek Oberoi or Hrithik Roshan was playing abhishek's part because in reality the fault lies in the subject, the story. A 25 minute story subject was dragged and dragged for 3 hours and even as a viewer one can tell that the story teller himself is running oout of stuff to show. In all I thought this was Abhishek's turning point, but it was a big disappointment, in the story as well as in abhishek's acting, even though he shares some expressions with his dad but his dad atleast makes it believable and enjoyable. My only recommendation for this movie is Please don't watch it!!!
