Ever thought that mainstream actors of the likes of Suniel Shetty and Tabu would
ever have had to dabble in semi-porn? See it for yourself. On second thoughts,
that is probably the path most actors tread en route to attaining fame. Hollywood
is replete with examples - Kate Winslet comes to mind foremost.
This film probably took years in the making, so much so that Suniel Shetty and
Tabu refused to film for it any more and the makers had to make do with whatever
was shot with the two of them. They have a presence of about half an hour, all
inclusive. The rest has been made up with a support cast of unidentifiable men
who are bustier than a brigade of equally unidentifiable women (and they are pretty
well-endowed, too) who have a strange aversion to any fabric that conceals their
polka-dotted underwear, and a guy with a mask on his face who is supposed to be
Suniel Shetty - just that he is two sizes too small.
Well, folks, it goes like this. From what could be gathered after a considerable
amount of effort, the main plot (oh, there is a plethora of plots to choose from
here!) revolved around one family that was split up by a certain Sadashiv, only
to be brought back together by circumstances, not entirely of someone's undoing.
Sadashiv was Kumar sahib's (Mohan Joshi) manager who swindles about Rs. 25 lakhs.
To escape from prison, he stages his suicide and leaves behind a suicide note
in which he gives a fabricated account of his illicit relations with Mrs. Kumar.
Our Mr. Kumar, as has to be expected of the typical male chauvinist (read 'this
reviewer'), asks Mrs. Kumar to leave along with Ajay and yet-to-be-born Komal,
who he thinks are the children of Sadashiv. Some fifteen years down the line,
Ajay comes back to Shimla to work for Jimmy, who is in love with Shilpa (Tabu),
who in turn is supposed to fall for Raja (Suniel Shetty), Ajay's elder brother,
and on whom the local don Pummy (Gulshan Grover) has set his eyes. So, we have
a kind of love-square happening. If the big-bro is romancing, can the little one
be far behind? Nope. He also goes about courting Nisha.
In the midst of all this, we have a slasher on the prowl. He kills, on the 13th
of every month, one person who is close to Sadashiv. Oh, wait! There is also a
melancholic love story revolving around Anand babu (Pankaj Dheer), and Anita (Archana
Puran Singh), who had left him for a rich man, providing us with such a 'smasher'
of a song as:
Ankhiyan Gam ki Nadiyan Hain
Chamcham Bahti Rahti Hain
Of course, the film has generous doses of seduction and rape sequences, and those
who felt cheated by the unkindly attitude of the censor board towards them in
can definitely find some compensation here.
And, for once, let us just reserve our judgement on 'minor' things like direction,
cinematography, choreography, music, background score etc. Let's cut them some
