Scriptwriters never die. They just reincarnate. The good news was that the first
generation of the filmi folks gave up after three billion vain attempts for a
perfect 10 on 10 somersault in their graves. The bad news is that it has reached
a screeching crescendo, again.
Karan (Arya Babbar) is a small time thief with big time ambitions. On one such occasion he gets to lay his hands on a Mercedes Benz after doing something similar with some women. Then he lands up with a fascinating young lady Anjali (Amrita Rao) and loads of equally fascinating packets of marijuana along with the booty.
Now starts the ludicrous loafing around, dodging cops and rowdies, and ending in up fights that defy gravity as if it were some local regulation. Song and fight sequences alternate for quite a while as they hitch lifts and keep blaming "destiny" for all the mucking around and still being around together.
Enter Ashutosh Rana (Teshwar). With spine chilling looks that would make sane people scamper for the trees, Rana reminds you of the quintessential villain of filmi world, which by a strange coincidence is precisely what he is.
Enter Danny (Sikandar Baksh, Anjali's Mama and DCP). With his spine chilling looks that would make sane people go scampering for the trees, Danny reminds you of the quintessential villain of the hindi filmi world, which by yet another strange coincidence is precisely what he isn't.
Anjali and Karan successfully collate all reminiscences of their previous birth, and after matching patterns across births, realize that Anjali is actually Nandini and Karan is actually 'krantikari' Amar Singh, and more importantly that they have an unfinished agenda to go after. Hence begin the second round of fight and song sequences, and end up at the conventional happy ending.
This flick was clearly intended to be a launching pad for Arya Babbar. He fails to impress, though. A bench vice, a file and a couple of hours in an engineering college's workshop is all he needs to get at least half of the more popular emotions right. Babbar Jr. still does a decent bit at dancing, but Amrita fails in every way. Danny and Ashustosh Rana come up with pretty good performances. Anu Malik's music tags along in the same quality as the rest of the movie.
Here's one movie that you got to see to believe. But if you have no reason to
believe it, you shouldn't watch it for the staggeringly straightforward reason
that you wouldn't enjoy it.
