A remake of the 1980 cult-hit 'Karz', re-titled with a thousand more ZZZZ, comes out a disappointment. Satish Kaushik, a veteran in the Indian Film Industry, has made competent films before. But, in 'Karzzzz' he hits a low. When you remake a successful film, your ought to stay faithful to it. But over-here, there is a new twist, which, simply doesn't work.
Urmila reprises the role of Simi, the vamp. Dino does a cameo as what Raj Kiran did. Himesh, is Rishi Kapoor "The Iconic Hero" Monty. It's a musical, and yes "In This Department", the soundtrack is as magical as the original. Till now everything is going steady.
But! But! But!... this remake has a sloppy second hour. The twist in the tale, lacks legs. It struggles to walk, but it is simply handicap. The climax, is very poor. It leaves no impact whatsoever! Also, Characters played by Gulshan Grover & Raj Babbar do nothing in the film. Why put these characters in the first place?
Satish Kaushik's direction is alright. The screenplay goes for a toss. Himesh's Soundtrack is fantastic. In fact, the sole saving grace. Each song has a feel to it, and each is memorable. Bravo, indeed!
In the acting department, Himesh is not bad at all. Comparing him to Rishi Kapoor is like comparing a Fish to a Shark! As Monty, he has done fairly well. Urmila hams as the Vamp. New-Find Shweta Kumar is passable. Danny Denzongpa is bland. Rohini Hattangadi doesn't get much scope. Gulshan Grover is wasted in an ill-written role. Ditto for Raj Babbar. Dino Morea in a special appearance, is decent. Bakhtiyaar Irani is mechanical.
On the whole, Watch the original again. But if you really want to watch this 2008 box office flop, I suggest you only expect scant entertainment from this one!
