Everything in this movie happens in the first 10 and the last 15 minutes. Like for instance, Abhay (Uday Chopra) who plays a geek is silently in love with Alisha (Priyanka Chopra) the hottest girl in his University. He even saves her from near death and she does not even know who it was that saved her, nor cares to find out. It had to suit the plot, which had to drag.
Seven years later, Abhay is still in love with Alisha. He has also developed a software that will unite all other softwares. He gets an offer from Varun (Dino Morea) who ends up stealing his software from his laptop while at a coffee shop. This same software is now being launched by Pinnacle in Singapore and Varun is the one who has sold it to them. Geek decides to go to Singapore in search of the thief and ends up being nanny to Alisha's six-year-old daughter. It had to suit the plot, which had to drag.
Yes, Alisha is now married and divorced. Of course, she does not know who Abhay is. All Abhay has to do is tell her about the software because, incidentally Alisha, works at Pinnacle. No, he does not and you kick your leg in disgust. It had to suit the plot, which had to drag.
In between, geek plays nanny to Alisha's daughter, who then fixes the two for a date. Varun, too is chasing Alisha, rather desperately. He comes out looking like a psycho in search of a cheap thrill not some sophisticated marketing executive who is out to make a billion bucks. It had to suit the plot, which had to drag.
Finally, yes finally, geek corners Varun. The marketing dude offers him 50,000 dollars to go back to India, Geek promises to expose him, which he does in the end. Yes, Alisha too realizes that it is Geek that had saved her life, thanks to her daughter's school play, which had a KARZ-like song.
If you ask me, this movie actually repackages Uday Chopra and the dude does a decent job. He stays in character and actually manages to get on your nerves. Priyanka's role has no strength. Her character falls flat in many places but Priyanka the actor stays firm. The credit says, Dino Morea's is a special appearance, while on screen he actually has a parallel role.
The movie tries to focus on whether love depends on looks and Abhay manages to prove his point when he takes Alisha out in the open dressed as a geek.
What really went wrong is that the script had no meat. With just a geek as a character and stolen software as a prop, you don't really care after a point because the director gives Abhay enough opportunities to say what he wants. He does not. How you wish the movie was just 25 minutes long.
There are times you even feel that this movie has a ROADSIDE ROMEO hangover. Incidentally, Jugal Hansraj has directed both.
