The late princess of Wales, Diana, had once said in
BBC interview that three in a marriage can be too crowded.
So is the case in this latest film by the director duo
of Abbas Mustan, who have shown a ravishing looking
Amisha Patel (Priya) caught in situation not entirely
of her making where she has two men in her life. Who
will succeed finally in claiming her hand is not the
million-dollar question but who comes out with flying
colours - to win her aggrieved heart, which has been
traumatized by a homeless childhood, rented ramshackled
apartment, is the moot point. Her livelihood as a ballerina
in a dance troupe cannot help her come out of this existence.
So she chooses a different route. The film's USP is
its pulsating songs.
A bespectacled Bobby Deol plays Raj Singhania, a shipping
tycoon, who is more of a romantic than an entrepreneur.
So instead of boardroom meetings, he is busy running
with his female employee on the dusty. Labyrinthine
stress of Malaysia or giving a diamond ring to his sweetheart
on a cruise liner.
Amisha, instead of striking a chord with the masses
by delivering her fluent heart-to-heart dialogues, is
shown dancing to her heart's content. She plays a girl
hypnotized by her beau so much so that she doesn't even
bat an eyelid when he tells her to marry a rich bachelor.
Only later is the true picture revealed - that she hasn't
been swept off her feet by the richie rich guy, but
only by his hefty bank balance (coming to a staggering
Rs. 50,000 crores). Akshaye Khanna (Karan) excels in
a villainous role. He has to an extent lived up to his
Dil Chahta Hai image by dancing like a through professional
on the dance floor as he is shown leading a dance troupe.
He is an archetypal middle class guy, who wants to become
prosperous not necessarily by hard work.
Entrapment, blackmail and diabolical planning are his
trump cards to climb up the ladder. Behind the effervescent,
bubblegum chewing dancer lies the brain of a scheming
man who is completely obsessed with his girlfriend.
On the whole the film, with stunning action scenes,
can be dubbed as an entertainer that moves at a slow
