No Nap for sure...
'Thrillers' always excite the audeince, especiallly when its made with
big stars and a big budget. Many times they match up to your expectation
and many times they dont. Lets see how "Kidnap" fares as per expectations...
'Kidnap' is the story of Sonia [Minissha lamba], who lives with her
divorced mom Mallika[Vidya] and keeps missing her dad vikrant raina
[sanjay dutt]. One fine day she goes for a swim and next thing she knows is
that she is kidnapped by kabir [Imran khan]. Kabir demands to speak to
Raina only as he wants to settle an old revenge. Raina arrives along
with Irfan [rahul dev], a corporate crime investigator. Kabir starts
putting up his unusual demands and sets a chain of clues for raina.
Does raina reach sonia as kabir had planned or things go haywire ? That is
what is to be watched and not read.
The Story is pretty average and we must have seen it umpteen number of times. Quite
predictable at times. And although, the screenplay is tight and pacy,
still the weak script manages to hamper it. Camera work is good
speacially in action scenes. Action is bit over dramatic at times, but
also great in few other scenes.
Music is not required in such films as it slows down the narration.
still first two songs of minissha are foot tapping and eye catching.
Rest could have been avoided.
Sanjay gadvi's direction is better than his last glam show. But due to
weak story line gets bit shaky at times. Still he manages to get good
performances and keep the pace on. One does wish the climax would have
been bit more powerfull.
Sanjay dutt shines as Indias richest man. Though not one of his best
role, but a good show. Imraan delivers another fine performance and
this time in grey shades.Still there was scope for him to perform better.
Minissha looks great and has done proper justice to the role. Vidya,
rahul, reema were all fine in their respective roles.
So bol meri 'filmi khopdi' is film mein kitna hai dum ?
Dum hain acha dum hain, par climax mein aur story mein kaafi kamzor
hain. If only these angles would had been taken care the movie would
had been great. Sadly due to those negative points, music and non
convincing reason for cimmiting crime by imran the movie ends as a
above average flick. Still worth a watch for main three lead actors,
also you wont take a nap in this thriller for sure.
