Film Review - Kaal

Nirmala Garimella

Kaal **
Dir: Soham
Cast: Ajay Devgan, Vivek Oberoi, John Abraham, Esha Deol, Lara Dutta

 

Throughout the film, Vivek Oberoi keeps saying, 'Cut the crap, guys' and 'Dil karta hai, khoon kar doon'. After watching this film myself I felt like repeating this dialogue and warn my readers that this is what the film deserves. Now why did I ever pick up this movie to watch. Well for one, I was tempted by seeing the star studded cast and the breathtaking background of the film. But sadly that is all there is to this film.

 

The opening scene is sexy to say the least. John Abraham (Krish) curling round bare-chested with a python in the jungle. Tagging along is his wife Esha Deol (Priya) who is supposedly a photographer but I never figured out in the entire film what she was doing with a camera. As a national geographic expert he has  been summoned to Obit Park to investigate the strange killings of tigers.

 

Some where in the midst of all this are a group of four friends out to explore and picnic. Dev (Oberoi) and superstitious girlfriend Ishika (Dutta), with two friends (Vishal Malhotra and Kushal Punjabi) run over and kill a black cat, before bumping into Krish and Riya.

 

As though this star cast was not enough for us to drool over, enter Ajay Devgan, the local guide who seems to have a way with tigers and who offers to be their guide. Slowly, people in the group begin to die mysterious deaths, with fingers pointing to poaching, tiger killings or something supernatural or what not.

 

The film slowly and steadily becomes chaotic and spooky with disturbing happenings. Fast Forward quickly because there is really nothing more to watch from here.

 

Karan Johan and Shah Rukh Khan disappoint.  Not recommended by this reviewer for its lack of shock value and sound judgment.
