Storyline

Autistic Indraneel Thakur, who works for a living as a waiter in a Café in India, has a body of a grown man and mind of a seven year old. One day while closing the café, a young woman named Maya Trivedi, asks for his assistance as she has missed the last bus. Indraneel assists her, takes her home, finds out that she is pregnant, helps her give birth, agrees to take care of the child, Gungun, and thereafter Maya leaves, never to return. Years later, Gungun has grown up, attends school, and believes that Indraneel is her dad. Then their world is changed upside down when Maya's dad, Dayanath Trivedi, arrives from London, Britain, to take custody of his grandchild, if necessary through the courts. Indraneel refuses to part with Gungun, and as a result a case is filed in Court. The Judge initially hears this case, finds Indraneel incompetent to be a responsible father and tentatively puts Gungun in the Court's custody. Now a date is set when Indraneel must take up the gargantuan task of ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

okay movie...great acting!
27 May 2005 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Watch this movie if you like Esha Deol and Sushmita Sen. This movie is given substance only because of the female leads in it. Lillete Dubey and Ajay Devgan's daughter have played their parts extremely well. Ajay Devgan is good as usual, but if you really wanted to watch a movie of this sort, you're better off watching the original, I am Sam. However, if you want to watch some seriously good acting in bollywood, you should go for this movie. Esha Deol is getting better in every movie. We can see the sadness and anger in her eyes when she calls her father up on her birthday but doesn't get through to him. She has an extremely expressive face, and definitely has the potential to be a super star like her parents. Sushmita Sen is awesome, like usual. She just keeps getting better. I thought she acted immensely well in Filhaal, but now I think this movie beats that in terms of her acting. Ajay Devgan has always been good and this is just one more feather in his cap. The whole supporting cast has done a good job as well. Yet, even with the fabulous performances, this movie lacks the essential ingredients of a blockbuster. The songs look like they've been forcefully added and, as I stated earlier, you'd rather watch the Hollywood version of this movie. An okay watch if you have nothing to do on a rainy day. Also, the end result of the case and Sushmita Sen's decision seems a tad bit unbelievable, but I guess that's cinematic liberty! I give this movie a 7 mainly because of the acting!
