    Gadhvi, i guess, is yet to come out of his Dhoom hang-over. The movie, at every key moment, looked silly.. be it the kidnapping under water, or the failed attempt to escape, blah blah...

    but strangely enough, it somehow managed to keep me on the seat, watching it till the end, even though i had the ultimate power of destruction: the ability to switch off the player :) » read more

    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 ... » read more

    A poor effort.

    Saw Kidnap, a trifle late in the day, perhaps, but was really keen not to miss Imran's next after Jaane Tu...., however, the movie was just unable to grip.

    I think both Kabir's and Soniya's character were mis cast. Imran despite desperate efforts to look mean, fails, and Minnisha (in my humble opinion) tries too hard to look sexy and hot. The effort to be something which one is not, is visible, which defeats the very purpose. There are a plethora of actors today who would have fit the mean as well as the sexy look quite comfortably.

    1. KIDNAP was made, me thinks, when the director and the writer were taking a long nap. What could have been a sleek thriller has been turned into a wannabe tear-jerker.
    Some Questions:
    (i) Why did Vidya Malavde have to speak so many English dialogues?
    (ii) Why did She have to play Minisha's mom in the first place?
    (iii) Do Indian actors who make wonderful debuts have to compulsorily sign crap movies thereon? e.g. Kumar Gaurav, Aamir Khan, Sunny Deol, ....
    (iv) How could Sanjay Dutt chase a train with his bike on railway tracks? Was the bike too fast ... » read more

    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 ... » read more

    its a really high octane edge of seat thriller. Imran is just amazing, the intensity of his acting n his transition from chocolate boy hero in "Jaane Tu ... " to this negative role is amazing. Guys watch out for this guy in coming years. The stunts in the movie reminds me of Spiderman at times. Sanjay Dutt is gr8 in the movie and so is Minishha who is catching up slowly in d race of bollywood babes. All in all a gr8 watch but the movie could have done better without some songs. The song by Minishha to seduce Imran is logical but not some others. » read more
