Aman has no other option but to share the place with her for the night.
She tries to seduce him, even does a dance in the rain but Aman is not
moved. Chameli, behind the sensual facade has a child like appeal and
is good at heart. She pays for the education of the small kid Johnny
who serves tea. Aman sees through the facade and actually feels sorry
for her. He helps her out when she gets into trouble with a pimp who
forces her to sleep with a man having aids. He gets too involved and
all of them lands in jail. Aman uses his influence to release them.
The story concept wise is interesting. But the screenplay leaves much
to be desired. The writers should have developed the concept well. The
pace is really slow. Some of the sequences are well taken but lacks
the flow. The climax too lacks the impact. Originally the film conceived
by Anant Balani was completed by Sudhir Mishra due to his untimely death.
Cinematography is good and the songs are easy on the ears especially
the number 'Bhaage Re Mann'.
Performance wise Rahul Bose has done his part well. Kareena Kapoor
has tried hard to get into the skin of the character but she looks much
too polished to pass off as a street hooker. Yashpal Sharma as Assistant
Commissioner of Police K P Singh is okay.
Overall the film is just average.
