Synopsis: Tanya is a writer who is living a happy life until she finds out she is adopted. She then embarks on a journey with friends in search of her biological parents.
Review: Esha Deol’s re-launch vehicle was her opportunity to showcase all the talent at her disposal. Sadly her acting talent is very limited to support this jerk-ishly handled and boring story. The film tackles some serious issues rather frivolously. One cannot expect much performance-wise when most of the film is focused on or rather banking on the acting talent of Esha Deol. The saving grace only comes from an entourage of senior actors who only serve as nostalgic tools.
So, Tanya (Esha Deol) is a writer, who is leading a rather luxurious life, until one day she learns that she is an adopted child. Her friends Jai (Arjan Bajwa) and Kuki (Chandan Roy Sanyal) come along as she sets out on a journey to find her biological parents. The hurdles she faces on this journey and the shocking revelations thereafter compose the rest of the story.
Vinod Khanna, Rishi Kapoor and Drarmendra are the reasons for her travels to Rajasthan, Turkey and Goa respectively. That and all the social and women-empowering issues she encounters on bundle up to form an unconvincingly told story. Below average dialogues and a very slow storyline make this film barely watchable. Hema Malini takes another shot at the same story she tried to tell with her earlier directorial venture “Dil Aashna Hai”. This attempt too, is anything but entertaining.
Verdict: Surprisingly slow and old fashioned, the movie is strictly for those who want to see their favorite 70’s idols on screen again.
