Mini-Bollywood rip-off but great music
9 December 2002 | by thnielsSee all my reviews

The main plot of this movie is good and the idea timely, although hardly novel. This said, the movie is really not very well implemented. The acting is sporadically good but mostly uninspired bordering the amateurish. One character, the male lead Cengiz, is well established but the remaining characters are never explained or even cared for thus leaving them utterly uninteresting.

What is so central to Bollywood productions and grandiose if you like that sort of thing is almost a parody here. Dance scenes are used to reflect emotions but with only a handful of dancers and almost no variation in choreography across the entire movie makes it a boring attempt. A great idea, though, had it only worked.

A fun fact to note, by the way, is that Peter Perski is Swedish having Ali Kazim dubbing his voice in not quite broken Danish.
