A Dreadful Remake. Not Worth It!
21 October 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I knew that this was a re – make of the 1980 Subash Ghai hit, "Karz" and also knew that it was about reincarnation.

I wonder what made Satish Kaushik do this film? He has achieved so much with his other previous films which has included "Tere Naam" and yet with this one he has added on just four "zzzzz." In terms of acting, Himesh Rehsamiya cannot be compared or matched to Rishi Kapoor in any way whatsoever. He is not just able to portray the emotions that are required in such genre movies and his voice for playback singing is, I am sorry to say for all "die hard" fans of his, is no way near to the quality that the late Kishore Kumar had. Frankly, I was looking forward to listening to "Ek Haseena Thi" but was disappointed with it. This particular song requires a rather high, strong and powerful voice, which can carry the words directly into the heart of the audience and Himesh Reshamiya just does not have that type of voice. He is unable to dance as well and this is what Rishi Kapoor was considered to be terrific at. Instead he should stick to composing music at which he is talented.

The Director has introduced a new actress, Shweta Kumar and considering that she is new, unfortunately for her, the role seemed incorrect to launch her career. There was no intensity of chemistry between her character and that of "Monty," played by Himesh Reshamiya, which leads me to write that perhaps the audience will realise how capable Mrs Tina Ambani (Tina Munim) really was and that perhaps she should be considered for life time achievement award.

Danny Denzongpa plays the role that Pran did, but unfortunately, even though he is a good actor, this was a let down. The same applies to Urmila Matondkar, who plays the role of Kamini, which was originally played by Simi Garewall.

Be warned: Watch out for the song "Ta Ta Tana tandoori nights" and make sure that you are not eating anything at the time as it may just make you laugh and threw it all out and create problems with the person either sitting in front of you or beside you. Also be sure that you are either holding onto your seat or have a seat belt to hold you in the event of you falling off the chair by laughing and holding your stomach.

The film also has its flaws, which, again to me, was conspicuous. Every now and then, the South African city of Cape Town is mentioned as well as Kenya, which is a country in East Africa and to me it seemed that either the script writers had it wrong as it shows vineyards when it is suppose to be Kenya, which is a country and not a town and Geographically it has no vineyards and is more famous for its tea plantations and coffee. While South Africa is famous for its vine Conclusion: This film is a complete let down as well as disappointing and should not have really been made and therefore it is better to watch the original any day.
