What an absurd film! Sanjay 'Dhoom' Gadhvi perhaps thought after the super successful Dhoom films, he could pull this one off too. Alas, he forgot when the script is weak and the actors jittery, a film loses out at the BO.
New boy Imraan had made an impressive start. God knows what got into him that he agreed to do this film! The reason for kidnapping the girl is so lousy! Sanjay Dutt looks tired and worn out and is a far cry from the energetic Munnabhai. And Minissha Lamba essentially has a girl next-door look that best not be tampered with. She does not fit as a sex-bomb, what with those bikinis and splashing in the water.
Imraan needs to improvise a lot on his dialogue delivery. He looks visibly uncomfortable mouthing those threat calls that actually sound so silly. His voice lacks the essential chill that you would look for in a kidnapper.
The music is irritating, specially the song where Dutt and team dance(the anniversary song). And who is the talented choreographer? He has managed to evoke quite a few laughs with those weird steps he makes Dutt do. Also what was the end all about? One moment Imraan is shot and the next moment he is standing there-teaching Dutt the advantages and disadvantages of making mistakes without considering anything.
Overall, Kidnap is not something that will thrill you. It is not a film worth a second watch. However, barring the performances of Minissha Lamba and Sanjay Dutt at places, Kidnap can be watched if one is sitting idle. But again, it is not a very exciting prospect to see Dutt dancing while his screen wife Vidya Malvade visibly flinches at his pathetic dance steps.
