Karzzzz Hindi Movie Review

Feature Film | Drama, Romance, Musicals
There is nothing that stands out in Himesh's second outing except for the Ek Haseena Thi track. Watch it if you have absolutely nothing better to do or if you're a Himesh Reshammiya fan.

After the successful Aap Ka Surroor, Himesh Reshammiya returns to the silver screen with Karzzzz, remake of Subhash Ghai's classic Karz. The film is again an out n out Himesh Reshammiya show. Apart from being the leading man, Himesh has also composed the music and sung the songs.


Monty (Himesh Reshammiya) is an extremely successful Rock Star based in South Africa; he is phenomenally popular and is worshipped like an idol. In course of one of the many parties he attends, he meets Tina. For Monty, its love at first sight. But, Tina returns home immediately, after leaving Monty fretting. That's when things start to change. During one of his rehearsals, Monty starts playing a tune and suddenly goes into a trance, with intense visual flashes - a mansion, a temple, a beautiful girl... Monty collapses unconscious.


On further probe, he finds out; the mansion belonged to a certain Ravi Verma, who died in a tragic accident. Another flash back reveals that Monty was Ravi Verma in his previous life, married to a beautiful girl called Kamini. Monty now has the grave realization of having been reborn in his current persona. His beautiful love interest (Tina) is none other than Kamini's foster daughter. From here starts Monty's new journey.


How I truly wish our Himesh-bhai gets back to what he does best, which certainly isn't acting or singing. The biggest flaw in Karzzzz is Himesh himself, the audience is fed with more Himesh than they could ever chew or digest. Too many songs, runtime about an hour more than it should have been, poor performances, below average direction and a Himesh who tries extra hard at everything but eventually falls flat in everything. The only saving grace is the cinematography; the locales of Kenya have been shot beautifully. It's as hard to control your laughter while Himesh gets hysterical in the emotional scenes as it when you try your best to not fall asleep. The makers probably aware of the same have aptly added 'zzz' to the title.


On a positive note, the target audience in the B and C centers is going to love it. After all, the poor Aap Ka Surroor was a big hit, wasn't it? If you loved Aap Ka Surroor, you will most definitely like Karzzzz.


The only important character apart from Himesh's is that of Kamini. Urmila Matondkar tries her best, displays ample cleavage, but hams in key scenes. Danny Dengzongpa performs well. Shweta Kumar in her debut film is wasted; all she has to do is look good which she does pretty well.


To sum up, there is nothing that stands out in Himesh's second outing except for the Ek Haseena Thi track. Watch it if you have absolutely nothing better to do or if you're a Himesh Reshammiya fan.
