This is a film featuring a chinless wonder called Kabeer,his sorry girlfriend called Jennifer,and an evil spirit called Jinnat. Huh? This ‘jinnat’,for those still with me after that deathless first line,appears in the form of white vapour,in ‘dargahs’ and churches,in Goa and Shimla. Clearly,it is a very secular ‘jinnat’,despite its name and origins.

‘A Strange Love Story’ is very strange indeed. From start to finish,you get no clue as to why it was made. To show off its leading lady’s ( Sen) skills? To display the debutant hero’s ( Seth) ditto? It’s hard to tell as this tale lurches from one awfulness to another : a lecherous fellow who goes by the name of Baljeet Billy ( Zutshi) pouncing upon the helpess Jennifer and coming to a sorry end; the self-same Jennifer leaping upon Kabeer in a pretty Shimla cottage,and a cop ( Rana) leaping upon both,as and when. The cluelessness was contagious : I have no idea how I sat through this.
