    Be-swaad Chhole

    Even if you watch this film without much expectation, there is a high probability you will be disappointed. Puneet Sira did deliver an alright “I (Am) Proud to Be an Indian” a couple of years back, but this time he has gone and borrowed plot from 70’s C-graders like “Ustaadi Ustaad Se”, “Unnees Bees” and the likes…

    Veeru (Kunal Khemu), once a trainee pilot, is now a petty thief who also does small time smuggling for a dreaded don Tejpal (Arbaaz Khan). Once in trouble, Veeru is rescued by Jai (Fardeen Khan) who works in a garage as a mechanic. Veeru is smitten by Divya (Anjana Sukhani) and soon they go along well. Jai has a tiff with his boss and leaves the garage. To avoid cash crunch, Veeru takes him to Tejpal and introduces him. What nobody knows that Jai is an undercover cop who is after Tejpal. Both are sent for an assignment which goes bust by a police raid. In a mishap a bullet is shot from Veeru’s gun which hits Jai on his head. Petrified Veeru flees and lands up in Bangkok. Jai survives and is taken care by the nurse Anna (Diya Mirza). Once recovered, Jai and his boss (Govind Namdeo) get the clue about Veeru through Divya. Jai is sent to bring Veeru back and make him prime witness against Tejpal. Rest of the story is how they travel back and fight with Tejpal…

    The beaten-up-to-death-plot doesn’t get relief either through a tight screenplay, or sharp dialogues or decent acting. The ensemble cast consists of the most talented actors of all time – Fardeen, Arbaaz and Kunal. Barring a few action sequences and a couple of anglo-hindi songs, there isn’t anything which can keep the interest alive. The villain’s character is so lame, you can’t believe he is the guy responsible for killing so many key police officers in the past and the police can’t nab him. Even a novice Veeru tricks him a couple of time.

    Performances: You should not expect something called performance from the lead male actors. Diya Mirza and Anjana Sukhani have pleasant screen presence in those few frames when the camera was on them. Govind Namdeo and Rajesh Khattar are passable. Mehak Chahal is alright in the item number but she isn’t getting any acting roles.

    Music: If you don’t try to mix the meanings of the bi-lingual lines of “Tainu Le Ke Jaana” and make a sense out that, it is a foot tapping number. Rest is average.
