Guddu Dhanoa and TIME Magnetics both team up together
after the disaster of their last 2 respective releases-JAAL-THE TRAP
and THE HERO-Love Story Of A Spy to come together for an action movie
Deol graces the bigscreen after a long time instead of Sunny Deol and
the movie was promised to be a action bonanza of sorts like Bobbys
GUPT, SOLDIER, BADAL and BICCHOO but sadly KISMAT falls flat on its
face and is a extremely pathetic venture!
film revolves around Tony (Bobby
Deol)-a street thug
who does everything for a price. He is the king of the streets and
survives on his courage and wit..
falls head over heels in love with a singer called Sapna (Priyanka
Chopra) only to
find out that she is about to get married to a rich boy from an
affluent family. A heart broken Tony decides to become extremely rich
so that he can ask for Sapnas hand in marriage.
gets a mission from his underworld contact to coerce an government
official to sign some documents. The task looks easy and the price is
ENORMOUS! Tony goes right into Dr Gosains(Mohan Joshi) office and
threatens to kill his family if he doesnt sign the papers.
Tony doesnt know is that Dr Gosain is infact Sapnas father and the his
signature would allow the corrupt and powerful businessman Raj
Mallya(Kabir Bedi) to release his his out-of-date and lethal drugs on
the market. These drugs eventually end up killing three kids and Dr
Gosain is convicted for life.
the meantime Sapnas mother(Smita
commits suicide unable to bear the pain and humiliation given from
realises that he has caused a huge blunder and now he must do
everything in his power to undo all wrongs and proves Dr Gosains
innocence. He challenges Raj Mallya and his empire and how he wins in
a battle of brain and brawn against him forms the crux of the story.
terms of a story Sutanu Gupta and Robin Bhatt deserves a 1/10 for
originality! The story is just soo damn cliched and feels like its
straight from the 80's! There is not even one orignal scene in the
movie and one can easilly predict whats going to unfold in front of
screenplay by Gupta and Bhatt is equally bad. The film never manages
to completely grip the viewer but it succeeds in boring them from
start to finish. The HEAVY cliches bog the movie down and KISMAT is
definetly one of the most UNORIGNAL pieces of cinema in a long time.
a director Guddu Dhanoa hits an all time low! This has to be
worst than his previous two movies JAAL-THE TRAP and HAWA. Here he
seems completely bored and takes the most oft repeated and hackneyed
path that has been witnessed time and time again. His ability to
elevate ordinary scenes with crackling action and staunch performance
that was witnessed in ZIDDI, SALAAKHEN and BICCHOO is lacking here.
The powerful scenes are minimal and the action sequences are ordinary.
The films has a huge bodycount and there is a dead body every 15
minutes. The level of violence isnt really necessary either nor is it
justified! The film has no grip at all what so ever. Be it the initial
sequences between Bobby and Priyanka, the scene Bobby blackmails Mohan
Joshi, or the entire second half which just loses all steam. I REALLY
hope that Guddu Dhanoa doesn't screw up the Deols home production
DEODHAR GANDHI...because going by KISMAT iam not getting a good
terms of performances the movie is ordinary!
been a while since one saw Bobby Deol on the bigscreen and he
has a role here that he is completely at ease with. His performance
here offers nothing new at all and one has witnessed him play
characters with similar shades in BAADAL and BICHCHOO and Bobby is no
different here. He seems bored for the most and sleepwalks through his
role. I really hope Bobby gets some meaty roles in TANGO CHARLIE and
BARDAASHT that bring out his "acting" side rather than
relying on his action hero image and his ability to ape his brother.
Chopra carries off her part with conviction. She seems confident
in the dramatic and emotional scenes and is more than just a
decorative piece in the movie. She looks stunningly gorgeous
throughout the movie although the chemistry between Bobby and Priyanka
is missing....she shared more chemistry with Sunny Deol in THE HERO
supporting cast in the movie is juat OK. Mohan Joshi, Shahbaaz Khan,
Smita Jaykar and Virendra Saxena do roles that don't offer them much
Vidyarthi is good in his roel though not as powerful as his
performance in ZIDDI and BICHOO! Kabir
Bedi plays his suave head honcho role with elan although i wish more
justice was done to this mans talent rather than roles like RUDRAKSH
Navrekar is a scene stealer in his role. He repeats his same
act from VAASTAV and is a gem. His comic scenes are just
the film is good. Sripad Natus camerawork is as expected and the film
is glossy for the most. Tinu Vermas action is
the usual fare and doesn't offer anything that we havent seen
Raaj Anands music is just average. All the songs have similar
picturisations and i lost track of what song i was watching. MAAHI
MAAHI has a good beat to it.
up KISMAT is a HUGE DISAPOINTING fare and even the most ardent fans of
Bobby Deol will be disapointed!
