A patriotic tale, the story begins on the backdrop of the original Delhi where the bylanes and crowded streets mark the herald. Here comes Roshan (Abhishek) along with his ailing grandmother (Waheeda Rahman), she wants to breathe her last in the motherland. This is the first visit for Roshan who is born and brought up in the US completely and little does he know about the Indian way of living or thinking. But soon all his misconceptions about his granny leaving the entire family and loved ones in America evaporate when he sees the overwhelming affection and warmth of the people here. In all this, Roshan comes across the slender beauty Bittu (Sonam) who has only one goal - to make it to the Indian Idol finals and also get away from the regular social norms and customs of the society. Eventually, Roshan falls in love with Bittu and what happens from there forms the rest of the story.


The director has come up with a rather earthly idea in the storyline and though his presentation is perfect, the narrative lacked the pace and the depth. The dialogues were okay, the script was written somewhat haphazardly, the screenplay was brilliant. Full marks to the music and the cinematography department. The songs were really heart rendering and they can be taken home. The locales of Delhi and India Gate were captured brilliantly and the real feel of Delhi streets was given. The settings and locations were apt and effective. The other departments did their bit to prove their presence. Coming to the cast, somehow Abhishek was not upto the mark this time, his accent was too put up and though he had few good scenes to enact, overall his show was not to his standards. Sonam looked pretty and did justice to her role, Waheeda was good, Om Puri was perfect, Pawan Malhotra was impressive, Rishi Kapoor was underutilized, Divya Dutta was beautiful, Amitabh's brief presence was not that magical. The others did their bit good enough.



The film could have been a lot better if the take off was at a higher pace, it was a rather slow start and it is not until the interval time that things really pick up and get interesting but then again the climax was something really perplexing which kept the audience in a state of dismay and a bit of confusion. The movie as such is good and gripping in parts but when it comes to the overall treat, it failed to impress. Since there are no biggies nearby, the film might just scramble for few more days and since the songs and technical values are good, that might pull the audience a bit but then the content part is weak so it must be said that the film has high chances of sinking.


Bharatstudent verdict : Slow and inaccurate landing, not up to the mark!!
