Believe it or faint. This is a remake of the famous Bollywood hit Baazigar, with
just a few changes here and there (more like outrageous changes). The difference:
entertainment value - this one has zilch. As for the replacements of the stars,
the lesser said the better.
The flick is copied scene to scene; only, with a good
dash of semi nudity (if you like thundering thunder thighs and artificial bust
lines), songs that sound like cats being strangled, and lyrics that give you a
whole new perspective of poetry.
For those who missed the bigger and better Hindi version, this is what the story
is all about. Vijay is a gold digger who will do anything to gain riches (plain
'ol Shahrukh did it for revenge) and his first victim is Anita, the daughter of
a millionaire who is wayward and addicted to drugs.
Vijay reforms her in the hope
that she will marry him and give him access to her father's millions. But, when
he hears that her father has disowned her and that she is penniless, he conveniently
kills her and pursues her sister, Julie. He wins her affection and we have the
usual B-grade song and dance sequence.
But Julie is suspicious of her sister's death, and each time she comes close to
a clue, Vijay is a step ahead of her and destroys the evidence. Julie finally
convinces a lawman to believe in her doubt and he begins to pursue the case in
Meanwhile, Vijay manages to win the confidence of Julie's father,
and the entire property is entrusted to him. This is when Vijay's true colors
are exposed and it is time for the final showdown. The ending is anybody's guess.
Boring and silly to say the least. Avoid at all costs.
