What was Mahesh Manjaraker doing?
16 April 2006 | by sibabrataSee all my reviews

I like Mahesh Manjaraker's movies. Viruddh for example was so well made, I went expecting at least a decent movie. But for me this was a terrible waste of time. This movie was torturous at best.

But of course, if you have liked Main Hoon Na, you probably would like this one too. There are some nice visual effects but they are used out of context. The story is confused. It has got elements copied from Sound of Music, Ghost, Bruce Almighty and also from Hindi movies like: Hum Hain Rahi Pyar Ke and Brahmchari. But there is no blend.Characters doing anything at times and the story going in every direction.

This movie, had some interesting parts and if it was properly edited, could have saved us from a lot of torture.
