Not much is known about IMPATIENT VIVEK and the title doesn't make things easier. Debutante Vivek Sudarshan, who plays the lead role in the film, holds a PhD in science communications. That's not all. He's also an accomplished puppeteer, having written a handbook on the same. Very commendable, isn't it? The film also stars Sayali Bhagat whose claim to fame still remains her debut film THE TRAIN opposite Emraan Hashmi.
It is love at first sight for Vivek (Vivek Sudarshan) who meets Shruti (Sayali Bhagat) while holidaying in Goa with his friends. After Shruti doesn't reciprocate his feelings, he returns dejected to his hometown in Rajasthan. Call it fate or coincidence, two years later, he accidentally bumps into her. But she still has no feelings for him and is about to tie the knot to USA based NRI guy. In haste, Vivek kidnaps her and keeps her at his place. That's all you need to know as far as the story goes.
The initial few minutes make you feel you are watching a semi-porn film. There's a tacky body massage scene which makes you cringe. A poorly shot love making scene also appears later in the film. Sigh!
What seems to be a Vivek and Shruti centric story, suddenly changes track as many other characters are introduced. It just seems random stories are put together and the film is made without paying any attention to the script.
Director Rahat Kazmi has got it all wrong. There's practically nothing that works for the film. It's a tiring watch and is not even unintentionally funny. The copious songs add insult to injury.
Vivek Sudarshan doesn't have it in him to carry the film on his shoulders. Sayali Bhagat, who was perhaps taken to add to the glam quotient, fails miserably. Rounaog Ahuja is decent. Charu Asopa can't act.
Watch IMPATIENT VIVEK if you want to check your patience level and pat yourself if you can sit through the entire film.
