A very bad film from all aspects
11 December 2012 | by vishal_wallSee all my reviews

I am a big fan of Rajesh Khanna and Basu Chatterji but this film is really really really bad. It has no plot. It has nothing to offer. Music is bad. No innovative story or sequences. Utter nonsense. Film is completely linear. One thing happens then the next and then the next. There is no need of the previous scene for the current scene. Its a complete waste of time. First 15 minute we see Neetu singh looking for Rajesh Khanna and every time she just miss meeting him. He finally meets her standing at her house door and thats the end of it. There is no relevance of whatsoever later. Nonsense. Watch 'mrityudata' aur even 'Rab ne bana di jodi' instead. They are masterpiece compared to this nonsense.
