A nice subject marred by a poor story......
11 April 2014 | by SumanShakyaSee all my reviews

Subject-wise, the film is pretty good which deals with medical profession and tries to show the dedication the doctors put into their profession. But whatever has been presented gets highly marred by its poor story which doesn't meet the reality at the slightest. Soon after touching the core subject dealing with surgeons trying to save the patients, it delves into a love triangle which looks very tailor made and becomes uninteresting. The kind of characters created and the drama mounted makes the film highly unimpressive. Especially, the role played by Priety Zinta looks very artificial. However, I can say Gracy Singh's performance and role were better. Had the film dealt more on the real life, the film would have definitely been better. Well, subject-wise you would adore it; but in terms of treatment and story the film is a major let-down. Still Dev Anand's "Tere Mere Sapne" is preferable on the aspect.
