A credible remake of the Brilliant Original.
15 May 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Don't be put off by tripe written about this film comparing it to the original. Just as 'Vanilla sky' was not as good as 'Open Your Eyes', this film may not be as good as the Usual Suspects but it is a very credible attempt at remaking the original for Indian audience. What would be the point in making the exact original, as the context and audience are different. If one could make a remake the original as good as, or better than the original, then it would denigrate the original. Why bother to go and see a remake if you expect to see the original. Why not except how good the original was and what brave attempt it is to try and pay homage to the original in the remake.

Yes the songs are crap and were unnecessary to the story line. Anil Kapoor and Irfan Khan with their new looks have given depth to their characters. The rest of the cast is mediocre and can't match the performance of two leading actors. Sushma Reddy can't act that is certain. Tanushree Dutta may be the obligatory pretty face in Indian movies, but she tries hard to give some twist to the story line and her relationship with Irfan Khan. Cinematography is quite refreshing for an Indian film and is homage to the original. Some of the plot lines are weak and lack credibility but the pace and continuity of the film certainly keeps you guessing. I kept thinking till the end that it would end like the original with Kevin Spacy walking out on his own. The end shot did come as a surprise, as it gave the story some freshness, even though it may appeal to sugar sentimentality of Indian Audience. Do see this film and then see the original again and except the original may be best but this remake is not bad as first Film from a young directors who is not afraid to tread dangerous ground.
