When N Chandra decided to pen the story for this movie, he was definitely pretty inspired. But then he found other things of interest in life, and such banal pre-occupations as making movies ceased to hold any meaning. And so what we have is a movie with a great beginning, and a body that makes you wish that you could be beyond all these too.

Seriously, the director is solely to be blamed for this sorry excuse of a movie - talented actors, a storyline with potential and a fair budget, he had them all, and this is the outcome. And to think that this is the same person that made Tezaab!

Virendra (Nirmal Pandey) is a business tycoon in South Africa with a sister (Karisma) and wife (Tabu). Things are running pretty smoothly for this family, even discounting for Virendra's quick temper. Everything turns sour when an ugly looking, supposed business magnate decides to take over Virendra's business. Virendra attempts to kill his ugly adversary, and, in the process, gets killed himself. And this ugly face is none than our dear Chi-Chi in disguise. And at this point the movie seems to have potential to be a good mystery flick.

But the potential dies a slow and painful death as the movie continues. It will never be clear if Govinda was supposed to be a pyscho with asthma or a wronged soul seeking revenge. He dances and waxes poetic to Karishma as he goes about exterminating anyone and everyone who knows his true identity. And when things get too hot for him he kills Karishma too, and it is then that we know that Tabu is his ex-love and that it is to attain her that he goes on this killing spree. (By the way, why is it that you keep getting reminded of Baazigar continuously?)

When he is close to attaining his goal, Karisma comes back from the dead to spoil everything. And we have an emotional narration by Govinda about how he was wronged by Virendra, and then, emotionally distraught, he commits suicide. Puzzled? You ought to be, since that is what this movie is - a sequence of confusions.

The music by Aadesh Shrivastav is good and so are the song and dance sequences, but they do nothing to enhance the movie. Our advice is miss this one and wait for Govinda's next release, 'Jis Desh Mein Ganga Rehta Hain'.
