PRINCE is loud (I'm not talking only about the music here), and over-the-top. It has a very thin plot, which is stretched beyond its capacity to endure and snaps somewhere midway. You are then subjected to bike chases, gunfights and helicopters used as props for the daredevil PRINCE (Vivek Oberoi), who for most part of the film does not know whether he is coming or going.

Same with the audience. I mean they too do not know whether PRINCE is coming or going. In that sense, debutant director Kookie Gulati has done well to keep the audience involved. But after a point you don't really care whether PRINCE is a sophisticated robber or just helping the CBI nab two international crooks.

At one point, the plot gets extremely hilarious as three Maya's erupt on screen in search of a coin, one after the other, one of who is Prince's girlfriend. And since Prince has memory of just a day, he knows no better. You see, a doctor invented a chip, which when used on humans, can erase all memory, just like in a PC. Sarang (Isaiah) does that to Prince because he has double-crossed him and he is supposedly his right hand, heist man. But wait a sec. Even after the data has been erased from his memory, he knows who he is. But when he wakes up the next morning, he is as blank as a white sheet of paper. The explanation offered is that just as a PC has to be restarted, so also, until such time he sleeps and wakes up, the memory will not be deleted!

So as one Maya after another comes on screen, with songs thrown in for garnishing, you actually stop wondering and just watch Vivek Oberoi doing some daredevilry on screen. Such a fine actor reduced to now doing acrobats!




The thrills are well shot and action is first-rate but with not meat in the script, PRINCE suffers big time. Even the opening scene where he enters a Diamond Bourse in Mumbai and cleans it up is ridiculous. For an institution high on security, the way he is allowed to leave a high security zone, on his own, is hilarious.

I guess Kookie Gulati will have to get over his hangover of music videos because he does show some promise. Let's be fair to the lad.
