Storyline

Under the directions of the Minister for Information and Broadcasting, the Indian Censor Board prepares a list of cuts for Bollywood film producer, Vikramjeet's new movie "Aane Wala Kal". Vikramjeet is unhappy and decides to meet the Minister himself to appeal against these cuts, only to find out that the Minister favors even more cuts. Then Vikramjeet shows this movie in a private theatre to an audience from all walks of life, he then takes their written opinion, smuggles a copy to America, just in time to ensure that it is nominated for an Oscar. This is where Vikramjeet's troubles start as the Censor Board refuses to grant a "U" certificate; he is arrested for smuggling the movie without permission from the Reserve Bank of India. The only way he can escape the wrath of the authorities is getting some fans and stars of his movie to gather some dirt on the Censor Board members and expose them publicly. But will this pacify the authorities, or will it aggravate the situation. Watch ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Dev Anand Saab has crossed 80 years but still he wants to show himself as the lead and he also directs his own films

He brought a good topic that of censorship but his treatment is laughable

The film looks like a collage of several stories which don't hold, there are lot of carricatures which are too corny to be taken seriously

The film tries hard to make a subject but looks like a badly done film

The courtroom drama for e.g. is so contrived and lame that you feel like banging the film DVD on the floor(if u haven't bought the tickets of the film then)

Direction by Dev Anand is bad Music is bad

Dev Anand dominates every frame expectedly and he overdoes his part as he usually does with those same mannerisms and expressions and he looks too old too A wrinkled Dev Anand doesn't make us go to watch the film in the theatre Hema Malini looks too young to be his wife and gets no scope Rekha is decent Jackie Shroff is good, Amrish Puri is as usual The film is clouded with many other names in small roles like Govinda, Sharad Kapoor, Mukul Dev Johny Lever is okay, Aruna Irani is typical the new heroes and heroines and Vinay Anand(Govinda's nephew) are horrible
