Somebody please, please enlighten us on how such movies are even conceived! An art student attempting to solve a complex algebra problem or a scientist trying to compose a symphony will have an obvious outcome - disaster. This movie, if you can call it one, and is exactly that. An attempt to capture the Hyderabad Blues style, the entire cast is from Hyderabad, and suffers from severe cases of accent(itis) and pronunciation(itis). A comic love story is what you are led to believe is in store for you, but a meeting with anguish and pain would be a more appropriate description.
'Why O Lord, why me!!!,' will be the most likely reaction as you watch the film. The humor is older than the fossil remains of dinosaurs, and when not stale, is more vulgar than Dada Khondke's jokes. If even one of these actors had actually acted for a few minutes, the audience would have given him or her a rousing ovation. In all honesty, the only commendable quality is the attempt to do something different.
Gautam (Uday Kiran - yes, this was his first film) and Babloo are good friends from Mumbai who land in Hyderabad to hone their computer skills. Babloo (a strikingly taller version of Aamir Khan) is the typical skirt-chaser, and Gautam is the philosophical, studious kind of guy.
Babloo has no problem in finding his true love. The problem lies with Gautam, as his romantic interest, Anju (Venya) is a reserved and demure girl. In order to win her love, Gautam has to don the make-up of a woman (a la Tootsie, Mrs Doubtfire with minor changes here and there). The situations and travails that Gautam goes through are what form the rest of the movie. It is anybody's guess as to how this movie ends.
The movie crawls at a snail's pace towards oblivion. Stone-faced expressions and poor dialogue delivery are just a couple of the faults in this excuse of a film. Absolutely nothing can be said about the direction, as there is none. This Hinglish film was not released for a long time, and when Uday Kiran became a rage in 2002, was released again as Jodi No. 1, with this film (Mysterious Girl), dubbed into Telugu, being the flashback. Needless to say, that flopped as well.
You need to be either heavily sedated or possess a distastefully crass sense of humor to view this flick. Avoid it like the plague.
