Storyline

Born lucky, Karim Moussa takes to exploiting it instead of focusing on studies. Now a wealthy gambler, he decides to recruit about a dozen lucky people to participate in a deadly game of survival. His agent, Lakhaan Tamaang, recruits Ram Mehra - whose father killed himself after losing 25 Crores - and is about to lose everything he and his mom own, and may end up being arrested for robbing an ATM machine; Major Jabbar Pratap Singh - who needs money for his wife's treatment; a camel jockey, Shortcut, sold by her parents for Rs.15000/-, who wants to make it big in life; a returning player, Ayesha, who had already participated, and is back for more; a psychotic serial killer, Raghav Raghuvaran, who miraculously escaped the death penalty. All of the above, including others from different countries, must compete, kill each other, with the survivor netting 20 Crores Rupees in just 20 days. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

bad luck
28 September 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Soham Shah after the dreadful KAAL comes with LUCK

He brought a big cast at least Sanjay Dutt and the newbie Imran Khan were the hot ones rest he brought Mithun, Ravi Kissen and others

Thought he had a pipping hot film to do a Dhoom 2

Little did he think that creativity is required

He copied THE CONDEMNED and 12 ZAMETI and made a crap film out of it

The film looks like a big screen version of FEAR FACTOR or KHATRON KE KHILADI but sadly it is treated shabbily

The concept is marred with songs, romance and also the thrill factor is very clichéd and rarely does it thrill The climax is bad

Direction by Soham Shah is bad Music is okay

Stunts are okay at places

Amongst actors Sanjay Dutt looks overweight, tired and just walks around Imran Khan is too stiff Newcomer Shruti Hassan falls flat Mithun is as usual Danny is good Ravi Kissen is okay
