Storyline

Bhagwan Shri Kishan had predicted that the Kalyug (Dark Age - where evil will triumph over good) will start after the battle of the Kurkshetra - the epic war between Kauravas and their cousins the Pandavas. Sage Vyas had verbally dictated the Bhagwad Geeta, while Bhagwan Shri Ganesh wrote it, which included a little-known chapter - about Surya Dev's son, Karan, who though sired by Pandavas mother, Kunti herself, had fought on the side of the Kauravas. He adorned a body armor that no arrow or spear could pierce rendering himself virtually immortal. This itself could have changed the course of history and resulted in the annihilation of the Pandavas - until Bhagwan Shri Indra himself intervened and got Karan to donate this armor, which was then safely buried in the Uttaranchal mountains in India. With the body armor out of the way, the Pandavas were able to slay Karan and defeat the Kaurava hordes. Years later, Kapil Malhotra came across a map to this armor, which he wanted to be kept ...

The Indian Indiana Jones?
8 January 2008 | by (Fraggle Rock) – See all my reviews

No way is it near the levels of the Indiana Jones trilogy. 'Naksha' does take its source from numerous Hollywood films, including 'Indiana Jones'. That doesn't really work in favour of the film. Yes, there are a few good moments (stress on the word few). I think this movie had potential to be great (given the concept) and since adventurous films are scarce in Bollywood, 'Naksha' is sort of fresh. Now if only, the director had actually done a better job. The film moves at an uneven pace Technically the film is quite poor. Since it takes place in the jungle, a lot could have been done with the forest atmosphere and mystery to make the jungle more involved but its hardly put to use at all. The cinematography could have been a lot better. The split-screen was annoying and irrelevant and don't even get me started on the slow motion especially in the action scenes (which I fast forwarded). The action scenes were over the top and too long (which is expected in a film starring Sunny Deol). The special effects are of poor quality. Some of the songs are likable and of foot-tapping quality. I liked the chemistry between Deol and Oberoi. Vivek Oberoi does well for the most parts. However, in his introductory scene, Vivek comes across as whiny and Sunny is over the top in most scenes (as usual). Sameera Reddy tries to pull off a Preity Zinta and adds some glamour. She doesn't have much to do but she does beat up an item girl. Jackie Shroff is irritating. 'Naksha' is a wasted effort. It could have been great if the screenplay were tighter (and a whole lot modified). Editing would have helped. The writing could use a lot of improvement. For example, either leave out Sameera Reddy's character or develop the character and make her somewhat relevant. Involve the jungle. Tone down the fight sequences. Come up with something original.
