Ever since the release of KAL KISSNE DEKHA, the big question making the round is - 'Does Jackky deliver'?

Without making much ado around the subject, let's announce the verdict: The answer is a firm 'Yes'. Let's not just say that he has a potential to perform. The fact is that he 'does perform'. What strikes most about his presence in the film is that he is quite confident and neither overplays nor underplays his part. Even though the film is a show reel for the young boy, a better script would only help his cause.

Why a demand for a perfect script? Well, because producer-dad Vashu Bhagnani went all out to launch his son in a film which promised total 'masala dhamaal'. To give credit to director Vivek Sharma, thrilling portions in the film work well too. The BIG plan, the conspiracy, the use of hero's twin combo of technical and visionary expertise, a heartless villain, the chase sequences, the background score, jumping from skyscrapers - all of this gets a good adrenalin rush which makes the interval point and the last 30 minutes of the film pretty interesting.

The place where the film is held back is the lack of a love story. For a film which was touted to be a romantic musical thriller, the thriller aspects works most, the music is fine as well (though a couple of songs, especially the pre-climax number 'Tere Bina', are forced into the narrative) but the love story doesn't result in audiences missing a heartbeat even as Jackie and Vaishali serenade each other.

The film is a reasonably decent affair that can be given a watch mainly for it's thriller element and the twist in the tale that emerges at the interval point. Watch out for Rishi Kapoor here; he gets a chance to sink his teeth into something really meaty, doesn't let go of the opportunity and thoroughly enjoys himself. He manages to show a different side of his in this youth entertainer and along with Jackky features in most of the best scenes in the film.

This is why one tends to believe that if only KAL KISSNE DEKHA would have stayed on the thriller route from beginning till end, it would have been a much better outing.
