Promising Theme... Disappointing movie
7 April 2006 | by See all my reviews

A newly wedded couple caught on camera during their honeymoon in a hotel. Their porn videos are released on the net... The girl commits suicide and the guy wants revenge on the people... A movie that deals with Pornography, which according to its promoters is a 1.56 billion dollar. Exceptionally brilliant music--- Jal's Aadat and Rahat Fateh Ali Khan's Jiya Dhadak Dhadak. All seemed so well and perfect that anybody, just like me, would get motivated to watch with this movie which deals with the pornography industry. So one fine Saturday, I get the DVD, play it and guess what??? BANG! The movie's a complete disaster! Its not like the movie's that bad as I felt about it but its just that the writer (Mahesh Bhatt) and the director (Mohit Suri) needed to do a lot more homework than what they actually did while making this movie. This movie could have been great had the script not have so many loops and holes in it.

I mean picture this- A guy who is so poor that he works in a gym as a trainer and gets such a low salary that he lives in a one-room flat. After getting married to the girl he falls in love with (whose entry itself is very stupid), he cannot to afford to spend one night in a hotel and his friend actually pays for his stay with his wife for their honeymoon but bang bang! When the guy gets trapped in the porn controversy and is labelled a porn star, he has enough cash to get himself a lawyer and guess what? He can go to Switzerland (Mr. Director, care to explain how?_ on his own expense and after reaching there he hires a guy Ali (Emraan Hashmi) who's a pimp (yes, he has enough cash to hire the guy).

Other than that, Deepal Shaw is another pain and it only feels great to see she's not getting any more work. Her story of how she became a porn star is funny as hell! Ashutosh Rana is completely wasted and so are the beautiful numbers, Aadat and Jiya Dhadhak Dhadhak and for die hard Jal fans (like me) it was way too irritating to see Mr. Bhatt waste another good track in a shady film.

Other than that, Amrita Singh carries the film entirely on her shoulders with a lot of help from the music. Kunal Khemu is a good actor but for some reason, just doesn't have that much needed charm which is needed in a leading man.

Mohit Suri's sister is there because she's Mohit Suri's sister even if she does look like a man who needs to shave! Wonder why they took her! Emraan's character was forcefully pushed into the script (just like Shahrukh's was in Shakti) and it very much shows on screen. However, its Emraan whose entry adds that zing to the movie and makes it watchable till the end. Had they worked harder on the script before getting the movie rolling and had they chosen someone else to play Kunal Darr's character, this movie could have made it to the list of some of the greatest movies produced by the Bhatt camp. A great plot badly written with mixed performances and great music end up making an overall average movie which you wouldn't regret nor cherish watching.
