Not convincing
6 November 2005 | by folkpoet80See all my reviews

This was one of those movies that had a good cast, but was scattered all over. Let's forget about the Music before we even start the review. I forwarded all the songs. Good first half of the movie can easily turn many viewers away, as nothing core was in it. Anil Kapoor walks around in a 'chaal' looking for someone in Calcutta with Rani Mukherjee appearing in between. Whoever wrote the little summary created a fully unjustified and false image of the movie, portraying it as a great suspense movie. There was no suspense in it. Simply a story of a kidnapping shown in 2 hours. Anil Kapoor is the only thing watchable in it. Move on and find something else to watch. 4/10 I can't believe that 9 has been the most frequent rating for this movie.
