A weird tale, the story is about Baby Kusum, a child actor doing girl roles but in reality it is a boy Jerry. His film name is Master Jai. He grows up to be a handsome man (maradona) but due to the several girl roles that he has been doing, a doubt emerges about his sexual identity. This leads to a rather turbulent relationship with his mother (lilette). On the other hand, Jerry has a strong liking for a hot actress (Bipasha). So much that he even starts fantasizing about her in various forms and appearances. So where is the problem? Why does Jerry get confused? What happens after that forms the rest of the story.
The director has come up with an interesting thought but he failed miserably in getting it to the screen. The presentation was unusual but the narrative was a letdown. The dialogues were dull, the script was pathetic and the screenplay was confusing. Background score didn't help much and the songs were not that impressive. Cinematography is the saving grace for the film. Costumes worked hard for the film while the art department was creative. Editing was numb. Bipasha looks gorgeous but her role is really weak, there is no punch in it. Maradona Rebello is handsome but he needs to work a lot on his body language and expressions, Lillette was loud, Mahesh was enjoyable, Ronit was regular, Daya Shanker was the best among the lot, Kiran was casual, Asha was alright, the others did their bit as per standard but not much value.
The film tries to explore the internal conflict of the protagonist but then there is an absolute contrast in the entire theme. That's where things go wrong and the poor writing makes the whole thing stale. While the first half takes off on a bright note, within minutes, one can see heads getting scratched and audience going out for those unwanted breaks. The second half gets even worse so there is nothing one can do except wait for the end credits. This will sink at the box office due to its confused and complicated appeal.
Bharatstudent Verdict : Very poor!!
