Don't Waste Your Life On This 'Second'
24 January 2011 | by See all my reviews

Partho Ghosh pathetically rips off Peter Howitt's 'Sliding Doors'. This so-called movie is so stale that it looks older than a D-grade 90s movie. While the main story is a copy of Howitt's film, there are some 'space-filler plots' that are hilariously bad (and they feature unknown amateur actors horrendously delivering atrocious dialogues). The overall dialogue is very obsolete and sleep inducing. The songs are terrible. With the exception of Manisha Koirala, none of the actors even manage to deliver anything even remotely above a bad performance. Jackie Shroff is too old for the role and his makeup (which was an attempt to make him look younger), only makes him look creepier. Even though Koirala turns in a decent performance (the only good thing in 'Ek Second... Jo Zindagi Badal De?), I really wonder what made her agree to do this C-grade junk. Money couldn't have possibly been a motivating factor behind this as 'Ek Second... Jo Zindagi Badal De?' looks tacky and trashy.
