Storyline

Tina Marie D'Silva lives a middle-class lifestyle in a small town in India along with her widower dad, and elder sister, Rita, who runs 'Rita's Bar' where Tina also works after returning from college. After working at the bar, she then goes to the local Church to rehearse singing in the Choir. One day renowned singer, Vikramaditya Singh, hears her voice and enrolls her in his prestigious school, where only 20 of 2000 elite and wealthy students are admitted. After a few clashes, Tina manages to amaze everyone with her talents - so much so that she is invited to sing along with Vikramaditya himself. On the day of the recording, Tina fails to appear. An angered Vikramaditya decides to have nothing to do with her. He subsequently changes his mind, goes to visit her, and finds out that she is now a nun.

Music to the ears-Candy to the Eye.
10 August 2004 | by HeragSee all my reviews

If there is heaven on Earth, it must be Ooty,or Ootacamund, a hill station close to Bangalore considered the Air-conditioned City. Raj Kapoor, shot the picnic scene and the song "Oh Mehbooba-Oh Mehbooba" with the threesome in the dew-filled lake, forty-long years ago. Recently one of the recent best thriller "Raaz" was shot there. Now comes "Sur" where the beauty of this enchanting land is caught in Eastman colour. The CD is a must for collectors of film music since Maestro Kreem, has composed one of the best duets (Aabhi-Ja) from a Hindi film after "Barsaat"(Ye Raat Beeghi Beeghi) and "Hum Dono" (Abhi Na Jaao) This movie has a feeling of "Sound of Music" to it mainly because of the location, Cinematography and the Music. The new entrant has a long way to go achieve Stardom. Where as Lucky Ali though impressive is better off keeping his day job as a Singer and Composer.The direction of Tanuja Chandra is choppy and wanting at times, but I feel her real flaw was in the Casting. She needs some Casting lessons from Aparna Sen "Mr&Mrs Iyer". I enjoyed this movie even though this was considered a flop commercially, I will look forward to Tanuja Chandra's future endeavors since anyone who has a keen taste in music and trust in Musical Director in the caliber of M.M. Kreem cannot be written off easy.
