Tarantulas, explosions, handcuffs, passages, violent henchmen, secret agents, snow mobiles, funny dialogues, traps... But enough about Laloo's bedroom already! This one's about Sunny Deol's newest addition to his ridiculous drags. And before any of Sunny's fans black and blue me, let me rephrase that - this is about Sunny's not-all-that-new ridiculous drag! And if for that sadistic bone in your skull you still want to read on, there's certainly some gein (pun intentional!) in it for you.

Sunny Deol catapults over all his peers' misinterpretations and misconceptions about his skills as a pop icon. As Ajay, he demonstrates just why there cannot possibly be any other life form in the universe. And if there is, how it can be terminated by a mere human activity called dancing.

Ajay is world famous in his town as the singing dancing sensation that falls for the downcast Tabu. Amrish Puri (Ajay's dad) meanwhile is sweating it out to keep the evil forces away from Reema Sen. But he apparently did not succeed and Reema's acting ability is still possessed, we suspect. Anyway, he plays the chief-breach-of-national-pride officer, in short a bodyguard to Reema. She's the Home Minister's brat - the prime target of our friendly militants.

The one factor adorning every scene apart from the ghostly script is a pleasant backdrop. Switzerland, New Zealand or Himachal Pradesh, the cinematography needs to be appreciated - or rather, the travel agent needs to be paid more. On the topic of being paid more, the fabric department certainly never paid any attention whatsoever to Sunny's rags and caps. In those clothes, he looks like a character from the Spice Girls. Hyuk, he looks like all the characters from that one!

So the deal is that Tabu is held hostage by the militants and they want Sunny to hand over Reema to them in exchange. Sunny has to comply, and he has it relatively easy with Reema since her bodyguard is his dad and since she likes Ricky Martin! It all goes horribly wrong at the exchange, and as a million times before, the hero has to clear up his name in the end.

Okay, now that the story's out we'll analyze why people actually come to see a Sunny Deol movie and how this one disappoints them in every aspect:

1. To witness exaggerated trash talk and hard hitting truths: All this has to offer in this department is Sunny saying "Mujhe naachna nahin aata!"
2. To experience good action: Hmmm... haven't we had enough of that already? Anyway, "action" here means stealing scenes from flops like American Bond and The Hero.
3. To appreciate Sunny Deol: Go get a Damini or a Ghayal, schmuck!
4. To root for Tabu / Reema Sen: Tabu is the reason this one's called Jaal (can't reveal more than that)... And Reema Sen? Well, she makes men feel tingly and warm all over. Phew! But doesn't every other woman, too?

Amrish Puri could be the only reason for you to watch the movie, and if there's any other, the subtlety of the makers needs to be highly appreciated.
