True Love Triumphs Over Destiny and Lifetimes
4 July 2006 | by punzelleSee all my reviews

Govinda and Karisma are very charming in this romantic tale. With their charts against them, the young lovers (Govinda and Karisma) are not permitted to marry. But they will not accept this fate. They run off into the night, finding themselves at the den of an evil sage who is trying to coerce the handsome Lord of the Snakes (Nitish Bharadwaj, more recently known for his mega-series roles as Krishna in Mahabharata and Vishnu in VishnuPuran)into giving him a gem he needs to make the nectar which will give him immortality. The rub: it can only happen on this one night of the full moon -- which comes only once ever 25 years -- and the arrival of the young lovers and their defense of the Lord of the Snakes (NagRaj -resplendent in a black sequined body suit when in human form) has angered the sage, who then turns Karisma to stone for 25 years and causes the demise of Govinda. NagRaj saves the day by proclaiming that Govinda will be reborn, still with love in his heart for Karisma, and 25 years hence they will find each other again -- and only in his presence will she be able to speak and move (but not mention his former existence). Will the lovers ever be together? Will Karisma become a real woman again? Will the evil sage get his due? Don't miss this great tale!
