Trivia

Amrita Arora in an interview claimed that Sanjay Dutt was completely shocked when it came to filming their sensuous song. She claimed that because he had seen her grow up it was a shock for him to see her scantily dressed for the song Jannat Hai. Sanjay proceeded to call Amrita's mother and asked her to fly down and check on her daughter. Amrita affectionately called Sanjay extremely protective. See more »

So What! If I can see the future?
17 September 2004 | by (London) – See all my reviews

God only knows why a director such as Mahesh Manjrekar would make such a movie. It starts of slightly original and ends up being a direct "rip off" of "The Gift", which stars Keanu Reeves and Cate Blanchett, lifted scene-for-scene.

Mahesh is usually a great director doing original material, and this movie makes you wonder why he has gone down this route. Bollywood needs to steer clear of doing direct rip-off movies, such as Hum Kaun Hai (2004) which is "The Others" with Nicole Kidman. If they do copy the idea, they should significantly change it.

If you have seen "The Gift", a great movie by Sam Raimi, steer clear of this one, but if you haven't, you may like it. If you do watch it, it'll be for Bipasha Basu (wow) who is always a pleasure to watch, for her beauty and her acting. There's and a good performance from Sunil Shetty (not playing the tough guy for once).

Sadly, 3/10
