Storyline

Two British Nationals are killed by a ferocious tiger in Orbit Park, India. This incident follows several other incidents, and many deaths result, prompting a National Geographic correspondent, Krish Thapar, and his sexy photographer, Riya, to take a trip to this park and ascertain what really happened. A group of youngsters, consisting of Dev Malhotra, Ishika, Bagga, and Vishal, on a thrill and hunting trip also arrive there in the hopes of sighting and shooting some big prey. Both Thapar and Malhotra groups meet with each other, and seek the guidance of a local called Kaali. What these folks do not know that they are the ones who have been singled out to be the prey - and soon they will find out that there is no escape from Kaal (death) - as it hunts them down one by one.

Pathetic treatment of zero subject matter
22 May 2005 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Inconsistency of facts, poor script, poor acting. Ajay Devgan is such a good actor - think this is his worst performance. The only tolerable person was John Abraham. The director got too much carried away by Hollywood stereo type movies. And the end result is disastrous. The only good thing was the sound effects. Women (as usual) were treated just as objects. Maybe the director and producer should be more careful and meticulous about the finer details of facts and presentation. Ajay Devgan is a North Indian (?) villager but he speaks the most polished Hindi. Esha Deol is a wild life photographer. But she rarely carries any camera while she is out on research. Over all its not at all worth a watch.
