Storyline

Reading from a diary, a lad comes to know about a nobleman from Jaisinghpur, Sartaj Rana, who invited the wrath of the Mhatre brothers, Ranjan and Vikrant, by sending Lovely Singh to free abducted women bound for Thailand. Feeling threatened, he hires Lovely as a bodyguard for his collegian daughter, Divya, and her friend, Maya. Divya does not appreciate being followed around by Lovely and creates a fictional woman, Chhaya, who distracts him by repeatedly phoning him and telling him that she loves him. Lovely believes this person to be real and falls in love. In a bar, Ranjan's brother attacks Divya and is killed by Lovely - setting into motion a chain of events that will pit Lovely not only against the enraged Mhatre brothers but also against Sartaj himself, who believes that Lovely is attempting to elope with his daughter.

Lousy screeplay, bad directing, wrong casting...and, too many clowns
3 September 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is for the brain dead. Spent so much money and manpower to make this poorly crafted movie was absolutely unworthy. Salman Khan is still a quite good action actor, but he has played so many similar superman-like roles in so many similar movies, I doubt he'd still enjoy this kind of formulaic role. Being an action hero character must be very tiresome, that might be the reason why Sean Connery refused to play the 007 after several similar no-depth, no soul killing machine for the British secret service. Salman Khan should also take a serious consideration of his acting career, because he's getting old and getting heavier. Asking Kareena Kapoor to play the daughter of a super rich and super powerful man was actually a very bad casting job. Because she's too old to play a college student, and her acting talent is not quite boundless but limited. I've seen many of her movies, but never considered her a good enough actor.

This screenplay was so poorly put together, full of jerk and clown-like characters, the directing obviously did a very poor job too. The most serious problem of this movie is such kind of storyline, scenario and plot have already been repeated so many times, there's indeed no need to add another bomber into this same old same old crap.
