1.5 / 5.0

Plot : The story involves Raja, a person who is new to Mumbai. He meets Shekhar, who is a gangster, watchman and a pimp. ( Yes, of course) And Sonia, who works for a drug dealer. Raja and Sonia eventually fall in love. Raja concludes that, for North Indians, living in Mumbai is difficult and asks a politician for help. When twists and turns and betrayal lead to everyone trying to kill Raja and Sonya, will they survive? Analysis : This movie is a real headache to watch. The plot of the story is borderline horrible. The introduction to Raja’s first scene in Mumbai is shown, by him listening to two girls talking to Paan Vala about drug peddlers. (Yes, as if it's very common) Then, in the same scene a fight sequence is shown, which abruptly cuts through and dance in chiffon saree is shown between Gracy and KRK when they make an eye contact. The whole story revolves around a premise that is not even laid down properly. We are continuously made to feel sorry for KRK and Gracy’s character, but that never really happens. In the end, the story tries being fast paced but ends up looking horribly messy instead.

Star performances: Gracy as Sonia is okay, she acts nicely and is decent enough. KRK is the real problem here. Neither does he act nicely nor does he look like an actor. Their pairing is beyond believable, as no way in real life someone like Gracy would fall for KRK. So the chemistry becomes nonexistent, because of this unlikely pairing.

What is there? : 1. The fact that this made me think for a long, long while, tells exactly how good this film is, which is not very. The only saving grace is Gracy’s acting, which is not that bad, and at least she looks like an actress.

What's not there? : 1. A promise to a political drama is given, but what we get is a funny movie, which will make you laugh in serious scenes too. 2. KRK as an actor is something that is unacceptable. 3. Editing is beyond bad. Scenes cut through, without any continuation. 4. Songs are again, really bad.

Verdict : The movie is an example of how bad Bollywood could go.  If you want to see a movie with some cheap humor, this is the movie for you.
