The most amazing thing about this movie is not its insipid, stale story line. Nor is it, its zombie-like wooden performances. No, it's not the atrocious music either. The strange thing about the movie is that Shakti Kapoor, who is splashed all over the publicity posters of the movie, makes a 1-minute appearance, 5 minutes before the movie ends. Apart from that the only clue that he is a part of the movie, is his photo that is shown twice earlier in the movie. Now that is weird!

But apart from that there is virtually nothing in the movie to write about. It is as bad as a Hindi movie can get. There are half a dozen songs (if they can be called that) with the lead pair; a rock faced guy and a fat woman, who tries futilely to act, which literally drive you away from the theatre.

Then there is a ghost that is supposed to look frightening, but nothing with such incredible bust proportions can be scary. White saris and songs, which are haunting for all the wrong reasons, are another highlight of this movie.

The story is simple and boring. Dr Vinod is a goody good guy who shifts into his late father's (Shakti Kapoor - when you find out he is dead, you may tend to think, he is going to be the ghost!) old bungalow with his family. His family consists of a brother, who does nothing but build his already considerable body, a sister, who seems to be a walking, talking hoarding for mini skirts. The only scene in the movie when she is not in a mini, is a shower scene.

Then there is his wife and a mother. The brother, Raj, falls in love with this girl called Nisha who is also a body builder, but in a different sense.

Then amidst half a dozen or more songs, this character in a white sari wipes out the entire family, except for Raj and Nisha (Who get married meanwhile). The climax is an incredibly stupid scene with a tantrik involved in the proceedings. The performances are almost non-existent, and the shoddy editing is made worse with some heavy censor cuts.

The director, realizing the inadequacy of his own songs, has lifted some original soundtracks from big movies, and has used them in a stupid antakshari scene, and an even more stupid suhaag raat scene. But nothing could ever have saved this movie.

Maybe the director realized this and so used Shakti Kapoor for a single scene, that too in a flashback recalled by the ghost, and then used him on all the posters. He should have tried clever tactics in his film instead. Not that it would have helped!
