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.

Goofs

There is a sheet of paper on which the national park's rules are printed. One of the park officers states that those are in English on the front and in Hindi on the back. However, there are several other shots in which it is plain that the back of the sheets is blank. See more »

A horrible movie from Dharma Productions!
6 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Well, I just finished watching, correction, suffering through the movie and I felt I HAD to express my views somehow. Then I went through the other comments on this movie and realized most of them expressed those same views anyway. Yes, it's true, like everyone else has said, it's a huge waste of time, it's a worthless movie with no substance, and Soham should not be given any creative control ever again.

There are two things I am amazed with... I mean the movie was really bad, I can accept that without much surprise, it is almost expected to happen in Bollywood when we're dealing with anything outside the romantic drama genre. But this flick received Karan Johar's support! What was he thinking?! The movie was not entertaining in the least, from start to finish, it simply takes the most boring bits out of the worst thriller or horror movies you may have seen, mashes them together and actually calls itself a movie. Think of it as a movie that starts out like The Ghost and The Darkness and ends like Final Destination, and it is nowhere near as entertaining as either of those movies. I am not going to comment on acting or music or anything else because the basic plot of the movie, and its execution was so horrible and out of place, one can only stare shocked scene through scene that Karan Johar agreed to produce this. Concepts like acting, background music, etc, don't make sense when the basic framework they reside in is pure nonsense. The second thing that amazed me(the first being Karan's backing of this movie) is Ajay Devgan playing the principal character. I was always of the opinion that Ajay Devgan is an actor who follows a good script with the necessary substance, not one of those actors who would sign for a movie with the big banners because they are made by the big banners. Moreover, his character in Kaal is so ridiculous (I am struggling to find any other word to describe it), I am surprised he felt he would be making any sense acting his part out.

The peripheral characters are for the most part just as ludicrously scripted. I've read a few reviews elsewhere and comments on IMDb comparing this to an RGV production. Kaal is far from any RGV film, even Darna Mana Hai. It should be noted that at no point in this movie does it actually invoke any emotion in you, it simply drags on and on and the only reason I suffered through the whole thing was so I could write this comment with a clear conscience of having watched it in its entirety. I could speak in more detail about whatever little plot there is but most of you who have not watched it yet would probably still prefer to watch it and judge it for yourself and ignore the majority of the comments here, just as I did. To a certain extent, it is worth doing that, just to see why Karan Johar and Shah Rukh Khan should not be trusted as much as they are now.
