What shocks me is how could a person who has been in the industry since almost thirty years can come up with such substandard products! Vinod Pande has directed films like Yeh Nazdeekiyan and serials like Reporter and now it seems like he has fallen too much in love with his work. He is upset that this film has not received a good release but being kind towards the audience, they would do well to stay away.
The film, as has already talked about, is inspired from the Hollywood film 'I Spit on your grave' but lets put it straight away that the inspiration didn't quite work.
The film is the story of psychotic women who kills whoever she sleeps with – and that she does pretty regularly. Rohini (Maneka Chopra) is the victim of a gang rape after which she is left by her fiancé. She also gives birth to a child who dies in a car crash while still a toddler. The collective impact of al these take away Rohini's sanity. She could never cope with the fact that her son was no more with her. She turns a call girl with financial burden of feeding herself but kills every one of her clients. And Sarika (Deepshika), a magazine editor, happens to be the person Rohini calls friend. So after Rohini kills someone she calls Sarika up.
Chaudhari (Harsh Chhaya) is a police official who along with his subordinate Ranadey (Deepraz) is on the trail. Ranadey gets killed when he finds striking similarities between his one-night old girlfriend and the killer.
The story looks patchy with the script taking liberty to switch Rohini's traveling preference between a taxi and her car at its own convenience. There are other goof ups like another call girl saying that only Rohini contacts her when required. This after she was shown calling Rohini up to fix a client. And also who would ever wear sexy lingerie, which reveals almost everything, when an unknown person is visiting you. She might be a call girl but this is still far fetched and does not look anything more than a desperate attempt to catch eyeballs.
One thing that repels the eyes throughout the film is terrible make up. All the characters, especially Rohini looks terrible with the foundation almost screaming out. And to add this was a strange use of Close ups through out the film. Most of the scene of Rohini had extreme close up revealing her bad make up and of course complete lack expressions. There are some subtle references to the schizophrenic state of the killer through the camera, which sometimes work but sometimes fall flat.
Lighting in the film is a problem, there being no uniformity even in the same scenes. For example some scenes in the police station are really ill-lit. The dubbing could have been better. There are scenes where it's evident that the whole thing wasn't done at the same time.
The direction could have been better. There were scenes where a little common sense could have made a whole lot of differences. Like the scene when the security guard finds that Rohini is a mental case. That was when she was talking to he non existent son in front of him. The position of hands and eyes of the lady could have been better if they kept in mind how old the child was. Also the love scene between Rohini and Ranadey is stretched a bit too long and there is no justification to the girl being shown topless. If he tried creating a classic lovemaking session like the one in 'Desperado' he has failed miserably.
But he can't really help when he is handling a complete non-actor like Maneka Chopra (also known as Sherlyn Chopra). She is a classic case of how less cloths does not necessarily mean sexy. Harsh Chhaya and Deepshika do well for themselves but still don't quite make it to the good acting bracket for this particular film.
It's hard to point out a single point that was good about the movie. And there is no harm in not wasting time. Don't even bother.
This goes for the ULFA... each and every member of the organisation
Are you guys trying to justify for what you have been doing? killing innocent people are you jutifying your presence which has stalled the state's growth.. i have evidence... of people who have decided not to invest in Assam because of ULFA activities... a venture that could have provided employment to hundreds... and that wouild have led to other people comin into the state
Are you justifying young people leaving the state in search of a better future... as with your presence there is nothing the state can offer us??
Are you justifying the fact that assam is no longer golden... because instead of a revolution for the better you chose to instill fear in the people
Are you justifying the fact that your breached our trust... when people beleived that you would be fighting for the state...
Are you justifying that it's because of you that everyone from Assam is regarded as a terrorist?
Are you justifying that you will not drive away illegal bangladeshis but killing your own countrymen as you have a base in Bangladesh?
Are you justifying all that and more...
The crimes never end... and i have no reasons to believe that you are ashamed of what you did... DO YOU STILL EXPECT PEOPLE TO STAND UP FOR YOU.
You cannot be Assamese... Nohoi tumaluk axomiya... jodi axomor manuhor proti morom nai... tenehole axomoli keneke morom tahkibo?
Big Brother saw him throwing away goons into the sky with easy and Fool N Final saw him doing some comedy. Rather he was still an actino here yet comical while he tried to woo Sameera Reddy. Sunny dabbling in commedy comes much after many other actors of his league have tried their hands in it. “Comedies were in vogue earlier as well. It’s just that they weren’t spoken about as they are today,” said Sunny in an interview.
After Fool N Final, Sunny has Apne coming up which will see him sharing scene with papa dharmendra brother Bobby. This movie will be about a joint family and will show Sunny playing a family man – a son, a husband and a brother. "It (Apne) is about the issues and happenings in a joint family. Some bitterness cropping up in the family doesn't mean that people don't love each other. It has boxing as its backdrop," Sunny said in another interview.
After teh not so good response for FNF, Sunny should have huge aspirations from Apne hoping it to pull him out of his drooping box office standings. “Everyone goes through a lean patch. So did I before Big Brother. Don’t forget Anilji made Gadar, one of the biggest hits ever. I’m sure Apne will be massive,” said Sunny in a recent interview.
Sunny also has another film Kaafila lined up which portrays a man caught in difficult circumstances. The Challenge which might release any time soon will see Sunny as an action hero but then this cannot be termed as a return to action as this is a film signed right after the success of Gadar.
Looking at his line up it surely looks like Sunny is trying for a major shuffle in image. And this might be a clever decision keeping in mind his age. At 51 years, Sunny surely does not hold good as a macho hero he once was. Continuing in the same genre would mean falling from a list of top line actors to starring in B-grade films, which were associated with Mithun Chakrabarty till recently.
