So what if it's a remake?
25 September 2004 | by See all my reviews

I don't understand why so many people get bent over if a movie is a remake or not. If the movie just remake everything right then it'll be enjoyable.

Sure the movie is a remake of Hollywood's The Gift. So what! Even Hollywood movies had been remade before. No big deal.

While watching the film, flashback of the original movie The Gift kept popping in my mind. It didn't bother me. I just like to see how Bollywood would pull this off.

I loved Rakht. Bips is a natural and is the best. Everyone in the film fitted perfectly. Some argued that Suniel's character was strange but not me. He was awesome. The only person I was disappointed in is Yana Gupta! Yes, she's there for an item number but I felt her item number was overrated. Give me "One Love" any day!

This is a Bollywood style movie so that's why it has a "happy" ending.
