I wish this review could have been ankahee. (wish i hadn't seen it)

I was dragged into this movie by my mom and sister and i expected total C*&p and let me tell you i got exactly that.

Having a positive attitude i will list only 3 atrocities this movie has committed(if i list all ill need a few days emotional support) and then focus on the good parts:-

1) The movie had absolutely the most horrible cast in recent years. Aftab Shivdasani looked young out of place and displayed no acting talent his range of facial expressions and emotions consisted of two looks both of which were similar to confused and can be best described as disaster. His chemistry with the actresses was as bad as can get and was non existent. Esha Deol looked bad and struggled to play her role her acting talent is not far behind Aftab's and in certain scenes she almost scared us with her hideous makeup and facial expressions. Amisha Patel who I'm sure did this role because she is Vikram bhatts new girlfriend again looked completely out of place and looked straight out off Ekta Kapoors serial with here coloured hair, saree and mangalsutra(gimme a break).

2)The story held some promise but instead the Vikram only concentrated on one stupid scene to the other making sure it looks like he is the sufferer while the other woman is the culprit. He excessively demonizes the character ( who i believe is based on Sushmita Sen) and forgets that there i story. The movie offers no explanation for the events that unfold especially disturbing is that we are yet not aware why Aftab fell for Esha in the first place.

3) The songs are lack lustre and as usual serve as further torture in this long and boring movie. The ample time one gets is more than enough to focus on the other bad parts about the movie. For instance how the hell did Esha still be alive and kicking a few hours after she swallowed a whole bottle of sleeping pills. What kind of doctor is Aftab anyway…..why the hell did he fall for Esha in the first place…………must stop, must not type more………….why is that AFTAB A VETERAN OF OVER TEN FILMS HAVE TO BE DUBBED BY SOMEONE WHO SOUNDS LIKE VIKRAM BHATT (what kind of actor is dubbed in his tenth film)………………must be strong must stop complaining………………………..

As promised now for the good parts (yes there are a few):- 1)The trauma that the child from the broken family goes through though over exaggerated actually makes you feel for the children of broken families especially when one of the parents has had a much publicised affair. 2) There is a scene in the movie where the long corridor effectively captures the distance in the relation between the 2 people and that they are about to split. 3) There are actually nearly 2 dialogues that I liked in this movie which I hope will appear in the quotes section soon.

All this occupies 5 minutes of the movie so nows the ONLY REASON one my watch this movie:- If you are the gossip and scandal loving person who is filled by a burning curiosity to learn Vikram Bhatt's version of his affair with Sushmita Sen and how she is actually supposed to be suicidal, alone , insecure etc etc then this movie will more then give you enough scoop. The signs are all there the Miss World, the large diamond ring she always wore, the famous Sushmita victory photo, the hair etc etc. This seems to be the only reason this movie was made .

The only other reason would be if someone dragged you along like I was or a large sum of money.

All in a pathetic movie that provides no entertainment except to a narrow section of society.

Ps I just heard that due to the negative reactions from audiences and film fraternity alike Vikram Bhatt is now claiming that this movie is in fact not about Sushmita. Too late Mr. Bhatt…..so Sushmita used to cut her wrists you say………hmmm
