The mainstream Bollywood movies have been bitten by the "dil" bug of late. So you had all those Dil... movies . Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge, Dil to Pagal Hai, Har Dil Jo Pyar Karega, etc. Similarly Bollywood's low-budget section seems to have been struck by the "kama" bug. It started with Kamasutra, followed up with the plain Kama, and now this there's this. Kaam-Pustak.

This movie reminds me of an episode of Jaspal Bhatti's "Flop Show", where Bhatti sets out to make a tragedy movie, but ends up getting the award for the best movie in the comedy section! First I shall dispense with trivialities like the story before telling you the parts of the movie that will have you in splits. Subhash is a "studious" chap, and is affianced to Sweety, his cousin, who is quite mischievous. Subhash's friend Madhu takes a room at Sweety's place for rent after Subhash recommends him. There is a digression with Sweety playing a prank on Madhu and, of course, Madhu falls in love with Sweety.

Now Sweety has friends who have morals that would make a whore blush. Sweety takes on a bet with them wherein they have to seduce Subhash in order to prove that even he is susceptible to infidelity. But Subhash is indeed made of stone; he is not moved by their overtures (and neither can he act!). But he ends up dead instead, maybe because of the shock of seeing three imposing females throw themselves at him.

Now Subhash becomes a ghost and starts knocking off his murderers one by one. Here the comedy starts. He causes all the girls' boyfriends to become demons with dentures that would make the Count of Transylvania go green with envy. The demons do the knocking-off work. One particular guy chases a girl all around Jubilee Hills. Some murders later, the ghost gives up and gives Madhu and Sweety permission to marry. Or rather the director gives up and ends the movie.

The movie has several funny parts, especially the ghost scenes. There is on fight scene in particular where Madhu seems to be swatting mosquitoes a few feet in front of the ruffians' noses, that too in slow motion! And another oddity is that all the girls in the necking scenes wear red lingerie. Raksha as Sweety does look good, but she laughs a little too much. The others are just there to fill up space. This is one movie that keeps you in splits, for all the wrong reasons.
