Storyline

Jesu and Peter are childhood friends who live in a coastal village in India and depend on fishing as their livelihood. The community is oppressed by a powerful gangster named Alphonso. Jesu is an orphan, while Peter is brought up by his aunt and uncle, after the passing away of his mom. The community is all thrilled when Phillips finds black pearls off the coast. But then so does Alphonso, who asks his divers to get all the pearls, thus disturbing the ocean. Peter meets with Suzy D'Silva and they fall in love with each other, and get married. While enjoying a quiet swim on the sea-shore, Suzy disappears. A search is carried out, and a number of human body parts are recovered. With shock and horror this community finds that their livelihood is being threatened by a gigantic, virtually undestructible man-eating shark. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Jaws it ain't!
30 October 2010 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

I never thought I'd say that, but Aatank is one of the worst Indian copies of a Hollywood film. This one rips off the classic horror film Jaws, and it fails so bad that at points it's really sad to know that such awful filmmaking exists in Indian cinema. The movie is very outdated - in fact, I think it was a delayed movie for many years. The writing is bad, the special effects and the visuals are horrendous, the casting of Dharmendra, Hema Malini and other middle-aged actors in the roles of the young protagonists is awful, more because everyone was made to overact. As expected, the movie tries to work more on sentimentality rather than suspense and terror. A pathetic effort really. Can't bother to write more, just avoid it at any cost.
