While returning home that night, he meets with an accident and wakes up in the East West Hospital paralyzed from the neck down with virtually no chance of recovery. Shattered and devastated, he is in for more trauma and shock when he finds out that Pooja will have nothing to do with him anymore. Upset, bitter and in despair, he loses his will to live, refuses to take medicine nor any treatment, and awaits death. Written by
Samir Karnik is a good storyteller, barring his debut disaster 'Kyun, Ho Gaya Na'?, he has churned out good enough films over the time, with 'Heroes' being named as a classic. However, he takes a backseat with his latest outing 'Vaada Raha... I Promise'. The problem clearly lies in it's writing.
'Vaada Raha' is all about Hope and Believe. Bobby stars as Duke, who's life today can be called gratifying. Everything works on his advantage. But in a unfortunate accident, he loses everything, be it physically & mentally. He becomes a negative pile, until, a kid enters his life and returns him what he had lost - HOPE.
'Vaada Raha' has it's share moments, and a power-packed performance by Bobby, but overall, this comes out as a half-baked venture. The film begins well, but becomes a bore in the most vital moments, it's culmination. It's far from being touchy, it in fact is depressing.
Samir Karnik's interest in the story gets lost in the middle. Karnik's direction is not great either. Binod Pradhan's Cinematography is decent. Songs are another sore point.
What stands tall in 'Vaada Raha' is undoubtedly, Bobby's power-packed performance. The actor is flawless and the life of the show. In other performances, Kangana Ranaut, in a guest appearance, doesn't get much to do. She looks angelic, though. Dwij Yadav as Roshan, is okay. Mohnish Behl is passable. Sharat Saxena hams.
On the whole, watch this one for Bobby's work, as that's the only substantial plus in this film!
