Nothing to Watch Except Urmila !, 27 June 2011
Author: mannu mehta from India

Remaking a movie in today's times is committing next to knock out yourself and the same goes with Karzzzz. I just don't understand why there was a need to attempt a Remake when the original itself isn't a great box office success. Ask Subhash Ghai who made the film and he doesn't consider it a success.

Well Mr Himesh's desperate attempt to do the role of Monty caused him great failure. This guy has been a great friend of Bhushan Kumar the film producer and he kept insisted him to make a 'Karzzz Remake' and the friend agreed WOW !

Well there is nothing in this movie that I can actually talk about. Oh! one important thing I would like to mention that I haven't seen the old Karz yet. May be that could be the reason I being able to tolerate this movie. Himesh is Worst for this role, I think anyone can act better than him. Because if Worst can be given a chance. The 'Bad' will be much much better.

Danny is good but not comparable to Pran. But Why should I blame him? he is a skilled Actor. It is clear while watching the movie his character was developed half-baked. He is still enoyable. Rohini Hathkandi is great. Her choice for being Monty's mom was the best. Debutant Shweta Kumar is not here to stay in bollywood. There are many likes of her in the industry. Music is strictly OK...Best Song would be 'Tere Bin Chain Na Aave' others are just absurd including the weird 'Tandoori Nights'!

Now I should come to the best part of this Film and it has to be none other than Urmila Matondkar. I have gone through many reviews on the net and also here and found that most of the reviews have been truly biased regarding Urmila's performance because mainly they have just watched the film to compare this to the Original. I am quite confident about those who haven't watched the old karz, If they watch the new one they will not stop raving about Urmila. She was the only saving grace. Although her performance can't be compared to her gem roles in previous movies, yet she was excellent. If the movie is itself crap its difficult to find any positivity. Reviewers say that she shakes, quivers and shivers in the movie every now and then, its laughable. This movie wasn't an Ek Hasina thi or Pinjar that you can detail on a performance. Anyways, If she wasn't good she wouldn't have nominated for her role in award functions. The producers of the film didn't take advantage of her fully. An actress who is famous for her dancing in bollywood. It was shocking that they didn't even given her a decent dance number to perform so that she could win back her following. I could see her disappointment in her interviews regarding her 'Signature Dancing' missing in this movie. All in all I can definitely say If there is any sugar in this stinky coffee...Its Urmila Matondkar and only her.
