The movie is technically perfect and have some brilliantly executed
scenes. But the screenplay is no good. It deviates from the main track
and gives importance to many aspects which are not at all relevant.
The love angle between Kanchi and Lara should have been developed well.
The role of the various characters are not well defined and although
certain sequences which are meant to evoke laugher are effective but
most of them fall flat. Cinematography showing off the Rajasthan sand
dunes, is excellent. The film has a Lagaan feel to it.
Performance wise Abhishek Bachtan shows promise but unfortunately this
film is not going to help him in his career. Lara Dutt looks good but
she would have been better off in a more urban role. Aditya Lakhia who
showed real promise in Lagaan is not up to the mark in the film. Other
supporting cast, Yashpal Sharma as the Thakur has done his part extremely
well. Akhilendra Mishra is effective. The rest are just okay.
Overall the movie is a disappointment except for some sequences and
the expectations are apt to fall flat.
