Director: M Shahjahan
Newly-married Anna (Alma),husband Vik (Carlucci) in tow,arrives in Ooty to build bridges with the latters estranged father (Vijyendra ). She pours out tea for him,and touches his feet. He says: ayushman bhava. Huh? Whatever happened to jeeti raho beti,and jug jug jiyo bahu?
Idioms are not the only thing that get mangled in this tale of crime,passion and reincarnation. Of course the bahu starts seeing dead people in all kinds of places in the marital bed,when she is in the throes of passion,in an old pub,in a classroom.
The spouse,of course,doesnt believe a word she says. A thirty year old murder of a foreign woman is resurrected.
Along with it come all the bad old cliches of Bollywood punarjanam movies: knife-wielding hooded figures,mysterious female retainers,shadows in mirrors,and clueless cops.
There are also other lures. Backless and topless women,naked men. Any takers?
