Off the beaten track!
27 February 2006 | by officialtidingsSee all my reviews

For someone used to watching regular Bollywood stuff, this one comes across as strikingly different. For starters, it's got quite an intriguing plot (dunno if it's a rip-off), interesting characterizations (not the stereotypes, mind you!), engaging acting and some witty dialogues!

The story unfolds when two individuals from totally different lifestyles bump into each other and prove to be each other's nemeses! Nana Patekar does a class act and it seems that the role was tailor-made for him. John Abraham is really beginning to get his act together and does a decent job. The chemistry between the two lead actors is what makes the movie worth your while. Truly, the casting has come up trumps!

Yes, it's got its pitfalls - the script isn't flawless, tends to be patchy at times and the overall work could surely have been better. One only wishes that more effort and time would have been invested to make this film a really delectable experience.

Again, the film makers have to be commended for not yielding to any song and dance routine (except for the introductory song) which keeps the film racing and bracing!
