The cupid guy is getting ever so freaky in the minds of scriptwriters these days.
The very first time the lead couple meet in this flick, they 'accidentally' almost
French each other. This is at the very beginning, and perhaps is a gesture by
the filmmakers to warn the patrons of the many gruesome things to come. But unlike
others, reviewers are underprivileged and have to watch on. So here's the dross
Karan and Pooja are belting out duets while Aapmesh (Aditya Pancholi) and Vikram (Rajat Bedi) are scheduling a major techno-gizmo hijacking. The latter two end their preparations for the hijacking just as we are fainting with the over dosage of the sweet 'nothings' of our lover fowls.
There seems to be no connection between the romance sequences and the hijack sequences at all till this point, and the movie is like watching a bat and a ball separately - you can sense their meeting at some point and then perhaps it'll be fun.
However, did our Hindi directors ever let us have a peaceful game? In that view, sometime later we find Pooja trapped in a hostage situation in a Boeing with the terrorists demanding the release of a kingpin of their outfit, a la the Kandahar hijacking of the Indian Airlines Boeing.
While the real hijack didn't have any valiant adolescents showing the common sense to knock down the entire breed of terrorists barehanded, the movie of course has a mortal matching those very specifications. Likewise, the hero gives one my-dad-was-a-pilot-so-I-can-get-into-the-plane-through-the-cargo-spacing look, and impulsively plans his rescue operation. With the help of an unsuspecting Sardarji, he climbs into the Boeing through a fuel tanker. And yes, we double-checked; it wasn't Sunny in that turban.
So with countless skills like dodging bullets fired from an AK 56 from point blank range etc., he rescues the plane. The terrorist outfit forfeits jihad and comes full-fledged after the hero for saving the heroine (and the others in the process). He obviously terminates them too, and at the very end, gets back to the duets again.
The blending of a love story into an adventure drama in the movie is unspeakably mundane. Actually, to single out and mention any part of the film would be time consuming and unfair. It totally and wholeheartedly sucks. But the newcomers Karan (from Paagalpan) and Jivida (Aishwarya's sister in Taal) are decent enough to start acting in real movies.
It's better to sit at home and watch reruns of commercials than even thinking
of watching this.
