"Chup chaap chip mere hawale kar do." This seems to be the only gem of a dialogue in the entire movie, so much so that the director takes liberty in having it been mouthed more than five times. The villian's face is not shown. Always, just a silhouette. Nothing menacing about him. So what about the chip? An aged scientist is developing a chip, which when inserted in humans will have the person at his command.
So this villain, always in the dark, with two sidekicks, goes after the scientist in a comical fashion to get hold of that chip. Scientist gives the comic duo a slip and inserts the chip into the engine of a car.
Car then gets super powers. Back home we had TARZAAN THE WONDER CAR. In the west, we all are familiar with the Herbie series. The plot is familiar; hero, group of villians, car smashed, villians become friends with hero, girl... blah, blah, blah...
Navin Prabhakar, who shot to fame with his 'Pechaan Kaun' act in The Great India Laughter Challenge in Season I is seen on screen after a long time. I mean he has disappeared from the small screen unlike his counterparts who can be seen everywhere. Smart move. But his presence in this film? Bad move.
