Dragging.
15 July 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is the same old love triangle and offers really nothing new accept that it is good to see Manisha Koirala back on the screen.

Karan Dhariwal,who lives in Budapest, dreams of a girl who he finds very beautiful – a girl of his dreams. One day, he sees her when goes to the airport to collect his friend only to leave him there to make his own way to the city, while he pursues the girl. Later he finds out that she lives in the same house as his lawyer and that she is his friend's daughter – Varsha. But she has past that she reveals to her uncle and informs him that she would rather prefer Karan to leave her alone. She informs him that in the past she was in love with a playboy who dumped her in revenge for what she had done to him.

Directed and produced by Afzal Khan, the movie stars Sanjay Dutt, Manisha Koirala, Ajay Devgan, Kadar Khan, Asrani, Reema Lagoo,Bindu and Himani Shivpuri.

I must say that this film was made a long time ago and that it has only been released now. Sanjay Dutt, for example, looks very young and since the movie was made, has aged; the same applies to Ajay Devgan and Kadar Khan. Secondly, at the very beginning, the credits have taken far too long to roll in – nearly three minutes which I feel is a bit too long for the audience to wait for. Thirdly the film goes straight into a song as the credits come to an end, which made me think "why?" It's only after the song that we see that its only a dream. Lastly, the first half is far too long and it could have done with a bit more editing.

Conclusion: Dragging and the audience will get bored.
