    Bahut Si Bewafaai...

    It’s a shame that the king of romance, who defined super-stardom in bollywood, is compelled to appear in a C-grade sleaze like this. It’s better to be a part of the Singh battalion in films like SIK, than a leading role in such forced erotic non-thrillers…

    Amrit Chopra (Rajesh Khanna) is an elderly business tycoon based in Bangkok, busy in dreaming of taking his group into the fortune-500 companies. Because of the work pressure and frequent asthmatic attacks (always at the wrong time), his personal life with his teenage wife Beena (Laila Khan) is on the rocks. She, being unsatisfied, feels like a bird in the cage; and on a suitable time turns her attention towards the lousy but young driver Raj (Sahil Chopra). Amrit finds out the illicit relationship, but is tricked by Beena, and eventually loses life in an “accident”. Investigation in-charge Harry (Sudesh Berry) starts looking for any conspiracy. Meanwhile Beena starts empire take-over.

    Suddenly a man, a look-alike of Amrit, comes home and claims himself to be Amrit and says that he was out of station all that while. A prolonged battle between Beena and Amrit follows, to prove each other wrong…

    Directed by Rakesh Sawant, the brother of over-famous Rakhi Sawant, this is his second outing after “Hot Money” made a couple of years back, and he seems to be mastering himself in low-cost erotic genre. Lot of pre-release hype about the contents, releasing all the uncensored meaningful scenes over internet well before the film release etc had already ensured high returns pouring in for the makers.

    Performances: Rajesh Khanna tried too hard but hams all the way. The voice is still powerful but dialogue delivery and expressions are plain bad. Laila Khan (the mystery lady, both for her name as well as her nationality), though immature, is actually the only saving grace in the movie. She, in fact, delivers better in the scenes confronting both her male counterparts. Sahil delivers another pathetic performance after “Chaand Ke Paar Chalo”. Diya Hayat and Ahad Khan have also been introduced as Amrit’s “Amreeka resident” sister and her boyfriend – plain bad again. Sudesh Berry in all his stylish avatar, couldn’t figure out what he was doing in the film. Surprisingly the item song in the film is picturised on Kainaz Parveen, and not on Rakhi Sawant.

    Music: Lyrics by the team of Shahab Allahabadi, Payam Saeedi and Salim Raza, and music by Ravi Pawar and Sayyed Ahmed do have a couple of melodious numbers (revisiting the 90’s orchestrated T-series melodies) by Udit Narayan and Kumar Sanu.
