Her experiments bring her with her team of fellow scientists from America to India where they encounter the gifted Varun [Sanjay Dutt].Varun has inexplicable paranormal powers, yet is highly disciplined and evolved. His unusual ability of taking away pain and affliction from his subjects fascinates Gayatri and he becomes a willing subject of her cause. Gayatri's unusual experiments suddenly hurtle Varun towards guessing the existence of a dark power that is hidden and evil. What is the force all about? And why does it wage a battle against Varun? And how is it linked to Ravan's Rudrakash? Hidden away, vanished in the hoary mists of time is the most unusual Rudraksh. Legend has it that it carried in its folds seed sounds that promised to mutate humans into a new species. This was not a normal ... Written by gavin@sunny_deol2009@yahoo.com

Worst film ever of 2004
23 April 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

It may be tempting for someone to watch Rudraksh,because it has a top starcast,is said to have Matrix-like special effects,action,etc. etc. But believe me,it's not worth.Not even a bit comparable to the Hollywood thriller. The long and short story-a supernatural story,about a fight between evil and good. Talents of a talented actor like Sanjay Dutt are simply wasted in this circus of a film. Suniel Shetty is the same as in his other films,but I guess his films are expected to be like this.So that's OK.

Two ladies with no better work keep moving around the two main characters. Music is unremarkable.The villain also dances and pretends to play piano in this film! Mani Shankar's films are all of the same quality I guess.Not worth watching any of them.Even if you have no better work,you shouldn't watch Rudraksh.
