Rekha the superwoman
27 June 2009 | by Peter_YoungSee all my reviews

This film is really really bad. But there is one thing that made it look better than it would have and it is Rekha. Not that it's her best or one of her best performances, but there's something very amusing about the fun she apparently has in making this stupid film and on the other hand the seriousness with which she takes her character.

37 year-old Rekha plays in this film a young teacher who gets married to a policeman played by the ever-annoying Rajnikanth. Soon enough she is raped in front of her tied husband and her husband is killed when he tries to defend her. This is followed by her decision to become a policewoman herself. All of a sudden, this fragile woman becomes a fighter who breathes fire and is able to wrestle anyone, just like a typical Bollywood hero.

Rekha's character had that transformation from a shy woman to a brave, strong madame who seeks revenge, which is similar to her character in the great Khoon Bhari Maang. But while the latter is a great, much more engaging and intense thriller, this one is a cheap, unrealistic film with unbelievably terrible dialogues, dreadful acting (except Rekha of course) and action scenes which are just pure fantasy geared to kids.

Only in Bollywood can we see a film classified as drama which is actually science fiction. It's however such a fun watching Rekha fighting, it was so laughable that a woman can fight over 40 men and remain complete, without a pimple.

Rajnikanth is a terrible actor (can he be called an actor? I don't know) and I was so happy that one hour into the film his character died. It was a great relief and I consider it one of the high-points of this film. From then on the film centers on Rekha, who tries to do the best of what she is given. That's what makes her a great actor. She delivers her dialogues in a great and convincing way. Alok Nath, a great character actor, is weak and unimpressive.

There is also something very depressing about the main idea of the film: the law is dumb. No matter what you do, how much you try to prove someone's innocence or someone's fault, the innocent will turn out guilty and the criminal -- innocent. Every politician is corrupted, every policeman prefers money to honesty. I can't understand why certain filmmakers try to portray the law in such a way.

Don't watch this film unless you are a big Rekha fan. (4/10 - only for Rekha).
