rubbish excuse for a film
12 February 2007 | by paz69See all my reviews

This movie, is an awful, awful, awful version of the original with Tom Cruise and Jamie Foxx. The Plot is more or less copied word to word with very little originality. The movie lacks any kind of suspense and emotion. Although Irfan Khan may have played commendable roles in the past, his negative character in this film has very little believability. He might as well have been out buying his groceries and became irate at the service with the supermarket and decide to kill a few people on his way home in anger. Thats how believable he was. Tom Cruise's character was very dark. As for the taxi drivers role, Jamie Foxx played a character that had issues in his personal life when Tom Cruise sat in his Cab. Tom Cruise forced him to confront some of these issues and in turn brought out more of his character. Hashmi's character had nothing. He was an ordinary taxi driver with no real background story and could easily have been played by anyone. As for Kothari's role, she was just there to add the usual bit of glamour. Again no real character as Jada Pinkette played. For those of you who can sit there and claim that this is a better version....my guess is, you know very little about film. Personally i think that the producers could have made this a better film by changing Irfan to either Manoj Bajpai or even the Big B. Even then, judging by its originality, i doubt it would have been a great movie.
