A remake of the 1986 American film "Ruthless People".
It was only after getting half-way through this movie (the point where Kamini was kidnapped) that I realised that it was a remake of "Ruthless People". Even though they copied a lot of props and ideas straight from "Ruthless People", I still found this to be a very entertaining movie. I've watched a few Hindi movies and I really like Naseeruddin Shah's acting - He was terrific in "Monsoon Wedding". I found the song and dance numbers quite entertaining, as well. I just wish that I didn't have to use the subtitles... I must miss a bit of the movie keeping up with them.
Overall, I give this film three stars out of five. "Ruthless People", I give the full five stars.
If you don't want to 'waste' money renting foreign videos, I suggest you look into what your local library system has available. There are quite a lot of gems out there waiting to be found.
