Storyline

Healing powers that science cannot explain and voodoo practices that defy all logic are just some of the instances of paranormal activity that Dr. Gayatri [Bipasha Basu] is busy investigating. Her experiments bring her with her team of fellow scientists from America to India where they encounter the gifted Varun [Sanjay Dutt].Varun has inexplicable paranormal powers, yet is highly disciplined and evolved. His unusual ability of taking away pain and affliction from his subjects fascinates Gayatri and he becomes a willing subject of her cause. Gayatri's unusual experiments suddenly hurtle Varun towards guessing the existence of a dark power that is hidden and evil. What is the force all about? And why does it wage a battle against Varun? And how is it linked to Ravan's Rudrakash? Hidden away, vanished in the hoary mists of time is the most unusual Rudraksh. Legend has it that it carried in its folds seed sounds that promised to mutate humans into a new species. This was not a normal ... Written by gavin@sunny_deol2009@yahoo.com

A good idea, gone horribly wrong!
31 January 2006 | by SherazadeSee all my reviews

I think the director and writer for this film did not see eye to eye. If they did, they would have known that they had a very good idea, which they poorly executed. With a script like this, you need a big budget to fulfill your dreams. Come on! we are in the 21st century! and you are making a science fiction film like we are back in the 1950s or worse! The script was solid, the actors were wasted, and there was only little the audience could do to suspend their disbelief! Better luck next time. See this film only if you are in the mood for mediocre stuff that might put you to sleep, or send you jumping off a bridge! It such a shame to see such a talented star cast go to waste!
