Storyline

Healing powers that science cannot explain and voodoo practices that defy all logic are just some of the instances of paranormal activity that Dr. Gayatri [Bipasha Basu] is busy investigating. 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

A pleasant surprise
25 November 2005 | by See all my reviews

After being told many times that the movie was crap, I decided to have a go at it, well prepared for the worst. But I was pleasantly surprised to find I did not find the movie bad at all! It is rare to find decent sci-fi quality in Bollywood movies. This movie fills that void. Agreed, it may not be upto current Hollywood sci-fi standards, but its a step forward for Bollywood. Agreed also, that the story may have twisted the epic (Ramaayan) that it is based on, which could only have augured unwelcome to Indian sensibility for having touched a sacred mythology, but creativity should be welcome. After all, nothing obscene was suggested or dis-respect accorded to the epic. The storyline is about events eons after the downfall of the Asur Dark Lord Raavan, vanquished by Sri Raam. A chance archaeological find bestows some powers to our corrupt villain (Sunil Shetty) - who is then tempted to the dark side and seeks to bring the days of Asuras back to the middle kingdom - Earth. But in true eastern Yin-yang/Rajas-Tamas tradition, every extreme on one side implies existence of an extreme on the other side. Our hero (Sanjay Dutt) gets the powers of the opposite side and as expected, good wins over evil. All in all, a decent fanfare. CGI was a bit drawn-out, but well done. Kudos to the team.
