Kaash Theek Se Banaate
In the sequence of “Pyar Tune Kya Kiya”, “Chetna-The Excitement”, “Tumse Achcha Kaun Hai”, here is one more femme fatale story. Shravan Rathod has jumped into film production with this film with key roles given to newcomers and a re-re-launch to his sons composer duo Sanjeev-Darshan.
Krish (Kumar Sahil) is a genius photographer/painter, who is happy with her fashion designer girlfriend Radhika (Sneha Ullal). He gets an opportunity to go to Mauritius for a month assignment for one of his client. He rents a house from a blind ex-army man Batra (Rajesh Khanna), who lives with his only daughter Kiya (Sanaa Mirza). Krish and Kiya become friends. Little did he know about Kiya’s dark past, obsessive behavior and supernatural powers. Slowly she starts intruding into the lives of Krish and Radhika, to the extent of even eliminating Radhika to get Krish all for herself. How Krish and Radhika fight out the battle for survival is the rest of the story.
Director choreographer BH Tarun Kumar has a very average track record with directing Hindi films with “Nayi Padosan” being his best effort so far. He is not able to lift the above average plot-line to make it a watchable flick. The very plain screenplay is further marred by amateurish acting by the newcomers and bad acting by the senior members. Dialogues are very average. All these factors together reduce the thrill factor from the film.
Performances: Kumar Sahil tries to look cool and elated all through the frames, be it a romantic scene or a comical or a tense sequence – he appears to have the same expressions. Sneha Ullal, though more experienced, also gives a flat performance. Sanaa Mirza looks more confident. Though she doesn’t have much screen capturing capabilities, she has the meatiest role in the film and stands tall amongst all performers. Her dialogue delivery (if she has dubbed for herself), is very strong with perfect modulation. Rajesh Khanna hams again in an ill-written role. Though he is blind, he utters lines such as “Aainda apni shakal mat dikhana” and “Meri nazron ke saamne aaye to goli maar doonga”. And he also wears those flowery shirts again. 99% of the Mauritius people (including the entire police staff) shown are Indian who speak fluent Hindi. Cross dressed Johnny Lever as Aishwarya fan IG Danda, who is the lost brother of Indian IPS officer D K Panda “Radha”, is so atrociously bad, you want to go tear the screen and give a tight slap.
Music: The score by Sanjeev-Darshan is average. Couples of numbers are thumping and melodious but are not able to alleviate the proceedings.
