Huff ! Such an elaborate title for such an ordinary movie.

It took as much efforts to enjoy the movie as it would take to call the movie by its complete name !!!!

It’s supposedly an action comedy drama. There are two avatars to our hero, one being the susheel one living a safe and stable life and longing for a like partner and the other being the risky one as an undercover agent longing for a stable and quiet life. Our pretty little heroine longs for a little spark in her man though it’s the quieter one who is besotted with her. How their lives get intertwined is what the plot is made of.

Not bad it was, the potential of the plot!

But alas! Our director duo Raj & DK turn out such an insipid product in spite of the plot ,two ati sunder actors and quite some fancy locations.

Just like the name, the category of the movie is also a misfit. For a film that calls itself an action film, there was hardly any action to boast of. The chases, the fights, the sequences were pretty drab and disappointing, forget about thrills. The bad characters (played by Suneil Shetty and Darshan Kumar) seemed lame minus any menace. Except for one or two scenes, there wasn’t much comedy to laugh or even chuckle.

The first half was pretty tepid and we waited patiently for the plot to pick up pace or excitement or emotion. Towards the second half ,thankfully our prayers were heard , and we found some assemblage of twists and action (mediocre but we were quite desperate by now to be happy with it ! ).

I must mention here that all through our bad times , what actually kept us going were our very good looking lead stars. Siddharth and Jacqueline were so well matched in their hotness quotient that it would be a virtual treat for their fans to watch them. They kept us engaged with their charm and their antics.

It’s a pity though that by the time their blossoming romance could flare up and add some spark, the movie had decided to culminate.

It would be unfair to talk of their performances when actual they never got much of a chance as per the script.

I wonder what went wrong with the director duo this time. This one neither had a rugged charm like Shor in the city, nor the finesse of Happy Ending and neither was it quirky like Go Goa Gone. I guess they tried to try out a very regular masala action film but failed to turn it out well.

So overall, I would sum up the film as a bland affair with no ups no downs no thrills. Hot looking Sid and Jacky are the only reasons that you might want to watch this one.

Score 5 on 10
