â€śSamajh nahi aa raha ke main kya karoonâ€¦ Royun ya hasoon (I have no idea how to reactâ€¦ To cry or to laugh)?â€ť remarks an exasperated Ajay Devgan towards the end of the film. In a sense, he is only echoing the feelings of the audience.
A girls-only college is gaggling with excitement because a handsome boy is walking through the courtyard. This handsome boy is Suraj (Ajay Devgan) and all the besotted college girls ask him why he is here. â€śBecause I like girlsâ€ť is his ever-so-charming reply. He is also here because he is the newly assigned chemistry teacher. The news reaches Pooja (Amisha Patel) and her friends. Pooja is all excited and giggly because it is a rare chance for her to get near a
And sure enough Poojaâ€™s first lesson with Suraj is something to remember. She sets off firecrackers. From here on begin Amishaâ€™s toe-curling attempts at comedy. Every time she repeats â€śsirrrrâ€ť and flickers her eyelashes, you suddenly find violent tendencies in yourself, which you never knew existed.
Amishaâ€™s asthmatic shouts of â€śMain aapse pyar karti hoon! I LOVE YOU!â€ť to a bored Ajay (bored as in â€śI canâ€™t be bothered to act, when does this shooting schedule finish?â€ť) across a street is a signal of things to come. You see Pooja has the hots for Suraj; only he has the hots for Supriya (Mahima Chaudhary), a paralysed maiden who has the hots for dancing.
The story is from the old commercial form of Bollywood cinema where every character made senseless sacrifices. Never mind now, such type of cinema was outdated even back in 2001 (when they started shooting â€śZameerâ€ť). Of the cast, Mahima Chaudhary and
Shakti Kapoor (as the kind teacher) try their best but their efforts are futile in such a film. Moreover, someone else has dubbed Mahimaâ€™s voice and this hampers her performance.
As for Amisha Patel, the less said the better. The film is all about her character and the actressâ€™ hamming makes large portions of the movie very unwatchable. Ajay Devgan sleepwalks his way through his role. These two also came together for â€śParwanaâ€ť and their only projects together have provided them with some of the worst movies in their filmography. Maybe they had better stay away from each other.
