Raj (Kapil Jhaveri) and Kajal (Saloni Aswani) meet on vacation in Capetown, and fall in love. When they return to Mumbai, Kajal is saved from an accident by an unnamed reluctant prophet (Salman Khan), who then predicts her death.
(Johnny Lever also stars, as Raj's friend, Funsukh.)
This film is terrible. The first half, when Raj and Kajal meet and fall in love, is tedious, banal, poorly written, and just as badly acted. Even the excellent Lever couldn't save this portion of the film, as his jokes were weak and generally not funny. The music, while not fully terrible, was certainly not good.
The story becomes much more interesting once Khan's character is introduced. He portrays the agonized seer well, and if the focus had been on his character, it could have been interesting and emotional. With the focus elsewhere, though, one good performance from Khan was not enough to make this movie even tolerable.
(Personal note: I finished watching it out of curiosity to see just how awful it would get.)
