It’s pretty understandable as Karisma Kapoor’s comeback after a six-year lacuna-- she is the hero in this movie. Casting Rajneesh Duggal as the male lead, the story is about an arduous love story that repeats itself from 1535 to the present. Unraveling soul-bending mysteries and setting the plot in motion, Karisma Kapoor is on a search to meet her ‘soul’.
Sanjana, played by Karisma Kapoor, is a supermodel, in love with an industrialist, Rohan, played by Rajneesh Duggal. Sanjana decides not to fly to Paris as her instincts push her against going, but her instincts fail to show her that her boyfriend gets kidnapped. She has visions about herself and Rohan, and she realizes that she can read Urdu though she hasn’t learnt it. Amidst all of this, she informs her doctor, Neetu, played by Divya Dutta; who in turn consults with a psychiatrist. The latter informs Sanjana that the kidnapping is related to her past lives. She undergoes past life regressions, where she sees herself as Geetha, a Hindu girl, who is in love with Iqbal (Rajneesh Duggal). Then she sees herself as a Muslim girl, Salma, in love with a young boy named Ali (Rajneesh Duggal), who leaves for a war and doesn’t come back. The final past life, she plays the role of an Indian chaste called Paro, who is furtively in love with Raj (Rajneesh). All through her past lives, the lovers were separated by a man who also loves Kareena and strives to keep them separated.
Will the duo finally unite? In which form did the antagonist take birth during the present life? Watch the movie to find out!
The supernatural thriller movie is deathly serious, but it unintentionally becomes comical throughout. Unravelling the mysteries, Karisma Kapoor justifies the role that she plays, wearing royal and elegant outfits designed by Manish Malhotra; depending on which century she is in. The entire movie is shot in 3D, which is shadowy and blurry throughout. Vikram Bhatt has indeed underestimated the comprehending capacity of the audience with the vague and bewildering storyline. Almost with every absurd past life of Karisma Kapoor, there's an equally agonizing song to complement it, composed by Himesh Reshammiya.
Karisma Kapoor steals the show with her impeccable acting skills, and sets the plot in action with her earnest effort to make sense of the time-wrapped spiel. Age-defying mother, hopping around in high heels, and delivering astonishing performance, she sure has her prolific comeback. Despite her efforts to essay four characters, she fails to reach out to the audience, because of the superficial and faulty plot. Divya Dutta’s natural performance brings some semblance into the ludicrous plot. Duggal has an expressionless face consistent with his efforts of inconsistent acting skills. Jimmy Shergill’s acting is insipid and short-lived.
1. Handful of scenes that are breathtaking and a whole lot of outfits to go gaga over, designed according to the pristinity of the situation.
2. Karisma Kapoor’s unblemished acting skills and dialogue delivery is sure to set few hearts on flame.
3. Plausible plot movement that renders suspense and a tad bit of thrill.
What’s not there?
1. Well-thought script is missing, which overshadows acting skills of few actors.
2. Consistency of 3D movie effect is absent, which is topped off with blurry images.
3. Chaotic story equilibrium and bizarre screenplay.
Besides the acting of Karisma Kapoor, the movie is truly dangerous… to the sanity of audience.
