super models of India - Anu (Madhu Sapre), Shiela (Padma
Lakshmi) and Rina (Katrina Kaif) - are buddies and stay
at the same place. In one of the diamond-studded ramps
set against Gateway of India Anu accidentally bumps
into another model and falls down. Immediately Anu picks
fight with her and in that scuffle her hair opens up
and 100's of diamonds fall on the ramp. The people around
pick those diamonds up. Actually those antique diamonds
are stolen ones from a museum in Hyderabad to be smuggled
to Dubai through that model.
Mia (Amitab Bachchan), Medium Mia (Gulshan Grover) and
Chote Mia (Jackie Shroff) are the most wanted dons who
rule the mafia world. Bade Mia and Medium Mia sit in
Dubai as Chote Mia operates from Mumbai. These diamonds
are smuggled by Mias. Hence, Boom Shankar (Jaaved Jaaferi)
- an aide of Chote Mia - threatens these three models
of dire consequences as their stupidity led to the expose
of antique diamonds.
rest of the plot is all about the threatening moves
of the gangsters and the mind games of the super models.
One wonders why Amitab Bachchan accepted such a senseless
script. His role in this film does not need an actor
of his potential and its utterly disgusting to see an
actor of Amitab stature to see in such a role that has
some perverted mannerisms attached to it. Gulshan Grover
is apt. Jackie Shroff played a lewd role that has one
girl sitting under his table all the time as he performs
the operations of his don syndicate in Mumbai. Jaaved
Jaaferi donned the role of a maverick side kick with
typical mumbayya mannerisms.
Zeenat Aman made a come back with this film. And she
is looking extremely sexy even at this age. Not to be
far behind the super models in this film, she did a
sensuous dance (Dum maro dum song) on the table
on Bade Mia by showing her legs and thighs in a seductive
way. Katrina Kaif exposed lots of cleavage and is taken
for a ride in her maiden film. Padma Lakshmi offers
nothing to the audiences except for her liberal skin-show.
Madhu Sapre is a mile ahead of other two female leads
in this film in exhibitionism. But the surprise pack
of the film is Seema Biswas who makes a turn around
in the middle of the film and ends up being the brain
behind the body-touting heroines. One wonders why there
is need to cast Bo Derek in this film and she was wasted.
The story is about the glorified mafia world and super
model's life. The director has chosen an unrealistic
way of showcasing the lifestyles of mafia people and
personal lives of super models.
- direction: There is no screenplay in this film.
The director seems to have gathered the spools and stitched
them at his fancy. The sequences in film are incoherent
and keeps the audience clueless all the time. The director
has focused more on the cleavages, thighs and long legs
of the heroines than on the script. There are very crude
and grotesque scenes that show sex in a perverted way
that put even the lewdest men into embarrassment. The
direction of the film is pathetic and would caught the
departments: Photography of the film by Himman is
good and lighting schemes are realistic. Music by Sandeep
Chowta and Talvin Singh is so so. Looks like the makers
have employed the 'spot-dubbing' technique and the dialogue
in the film is hardly audible. The sound recording by
Resul does not suit the theaters in India. Editing by
Reva Childs leaves a lot to be desired. Locales in the
film are stunning.
Its surprising to see a lady like Ayesha Shroff producing
a film that has so much of flesh and direct reference
towards crude sex. The film is made on pretty high budget.
But what the producers should do is resist themselves
from falling prey to these so called directors who did
the film direction courses in USA who concentrate more
on hype and less on content.
This is one of the most disgusting films to watch along
with your family. The direction of the film is pathetic
and it bores you to the extreme. This film is like watching
'F TV on a 70mm screen'.
But if you get enticed by it and go to the theater,
you are taken for a ride for 2 full hours. Avoid watching
