It's not a superb film, But yet seems a decent remake of CHANDRAMUKHI and Manichithrathazhu (1993) Luckily some bad comic scenes of Chandramukhi were not retained The film isn't original as such, in fact the entire climax is a copy of the latter film while the rest is copied from Chandramukhi As usual, Priyadarshan always brings his south films here The first half is slowly and steadily well developed but things get boring soon, the hysterical scenes at times are stupid like the entire Paresh Rawal scene where he doesn't speak, the length is a problem Akshay's character comes 45 minutes late and then there is focus more on comedy and some scenes are funny, though the supernatural angle takes a backseat and resurfaces slowly The entire suspense angle does catch you unaware and is well handled but the climax is a copy of the latter inspired film and it some how looks too much Yet in all fairness, the film is better then DHOL, BHAGAM BHAG and emerges a decent film Priyadarshan handles the film well, though some scenes are repetitive and also some comic scenes fall flat yet he handles the genre very well Music(Pritam) is of hit variety, though Hare Ram comes at the wrong time Cinematography is decent
Performances Akshay Kumar despite emerging late is superb He not only excels in comedy, but also does a brilliant job in serious scenes, shocking his haters he is one of the best part of the film Vidya is ordinary till the suspense is revealed and then she does a good job, though Jyothika and Shobana were better then her in the originals, yet she does a good job Shiny Ahuja isn't in form, he hams and goes over the top so badly that he gets to your nerves Manoj Joshi is in form, thankfully he doesn't make loud sounds and runs around like he usually does in Priyan movies, He is excellent Paresh Rawal is funny in few scenes, overall the same thing what he does mostly Rajpal Yadav has 4-5 scenes and he does OK, he too is repetitive the rest are okay
