Outrageous nonsense, sexy Katkar. Better avoided
12 February 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Yup, this one is as bad as it sounds. A remake of Tarzan in a Hindi film. Hemant Birje is the muscle-bound stud with nary an acting muscle in his body. He is matched in the non-acting department by the sexy Kimi Katkar. Admittedly, there are some nice scenes of these two rolling around and getting naughty in the jungle. However, the bulk of the film is atrocious with next to nil production values, jungle natives who seem to have stepped right out of the 1930s and a screenplay clearly written by a four year old. There is a little campy fun to be had, but its just too long to suffer through. Avoid.

Overall 2/10
