Mehul Kumar has started his career in Directorship since 1977, and unfortunately for him till now only two films are being watchable, Krantiveer (1994) and Tirangaa (1993). Now after a span of about 6yrs he came back in the industry to direct one more film, and he thought why not to make the remake of Krantiveer, the only film of him which was running a super good successfully at the box office. But he forgot that it ran just because of the one man called “Nanapatekar”, still also a class actor. And so the film hit nai, balki pit gayi.
Same old clichéd story is being written and executed. Jahan Bloch is playing as the daughter of Nana and Dimple. After their death Jahan was being brought up by her grandmother Farida Jalal. Samir Aftab was the son of the Late ACP (Ashok Samarth). Samir and Jahan were friends and fallen in love with each other. Because of Samir, Jahan got the job of a news reporter in one leading news channel. Govind Namdeo and Mukesh Tiwari were the two corrupt politicians, and also by somehow Samir and Jahan got to knew that they are also the murderers of their parents. So they both made a sting operation and opened their naked truth in front of the public. And rest we all know, blah blah blah blah and the film ends.
Mehul Kumar not only directed the film but also had written the story. And thus as a result we are able to see again 90’s kind of drama in this 2010 century. Not only he has written and directed the film, but he has appeared as a cameo in the film. And thus as a result it was looking why he had chosen only cameo, he could in the lead role. Atleast he would better act than his daughter.
Performances by all of them were very bad. Jahan was doing acting or was doing mimicry of Nana Patekar? I am so confused! Samir was strictly less than Ok. And rest all which includes Govind Namdeo, Mukesh Tiwari, Ranjeet, Farida Jalal were all typecast.
Music done by the two young boys, Sachin and Jigar, who had given such a beautiful tracks in the film called “Tere Sang”; but ruined their magic, their talent, and also their chance. All the songs as well as the Background score was very poorly framed and gave the feel which one can immediately recalls any 90’s kind of films. The only song which was likable was the “Vande Mataram” track. It was good to hear but the video and the footages over it were very badly pasted.
On a frank note and on a serious note, I just like the one scene, but that too so-so; still it was likable compare to the whole movie. The scene where Samir’s dad, who was an ACP, is writing ‘Ram’ with the white chalk in front of Muslims people and ‘Rahim’ in front of Hindu people and telling them that if they don’t believe in these gods than walk over their names. Actually described in a very dramatic scene, but still it’s something new and also likable. And yes, not to be forgetting that the real footages of the terror attacks in the Taj Hotels were good to see but sadly presented in very funny way.
Watch it only if you want see one girl doing mimicry of Nana Patekar. But why to spend 200bucks on the multiplexes for that? Give me 100bucks and let me entertain you ;-)
