Direction: Vivek Agarwal
Plot: Rampal, is the lead anchor of British Raj, a desi take on events in
One fine day he walks into his house and meets Shivani(Vipasha) who claims she is a spirit of a person lying in coma in a hospital. After the initial shock, he understands and comes to terms with the fact that the woman can only be seen and heard by him. He sees this as a problem that needs a solution. A rapport builds between the two and they explore
I guess Vipasha actually decided that she needs to look like a spirit and refuses to emote. Inspite of a few decent shots, she lacks the charisma to have a presence across the whole movie.
The music is good in patches. Almost like the pitch of the third test in
The rest of the cast is simply non-existent or is not required at all. Kiron Kher emotes well as the mother who has to decide whether to keep her daughter alive or to kill her. Boman Irani as a stupid psychologist plays the part. Sonali Kulkarni(what a fall from her DCH days) and Chunkey Pandey(who is the colleague and close friend of Rampal in the movie acts pretty well, showing that the ‘Aankhen’ charm is lurking somewhere) as a garrulous couple are irritating and Sophie as the seductive (why the hell was such a character required?) co-anchor is an eye sore (yes, believe me she is).
All in all, the movie is unobtrusive, and you can watch it if you need to eat some popcorn.
