Lost between two tales.
The movie begins with some competition taking place at a stunning location of Leh. From the first frame audience are left clueless as when the action just kicks off the other modern tale begins where two school kids in Jodhpur begins the story. The boy Munish played by Harshvardhan Kapoor falls in love with a police officers daughter Suchi played by Saiyami Kher, a tragic incident takes place which falls them apart. After some years, the couple meet each other again but this time Suchi is a soon to be princess and Munish (now Adeel) is a horse trainer and the prince orders Adeel to train his fiancée. Then starts the love triangle between the lovers and the prince Karan played by Anuj Choudhary.
In between the modern day story comes the story about legendary lovers Mirza-Sahiban. The historic love story has not even a single dialogue which not only make the audience confused but also irritates the people . People are left confused whether the movie is about Reincarnation or its the two different story played. Director makes no attempt to connect with either the audience or the tales. The only thing that is served properly is the camera-work and an hunting sequence with the tiger. Music of the movie is decent but the direction, Narration and the tragic let down screenplay makes the audience question about the real content. On top 135 minutes will make you feel like the movie is almost 270 minutes.
Both the new-comers Harshvardhan Kapoor and Saiyami Kher does a decent job since there were not much dialogues and screen time given to prove there worth. The co-actors like Art Malik and K.K.Raina doesn't leave a mark and Om Puri character is meaningless because the role is not clearly defined. Anjali Patil who plays a lover devoted to Adeel makes her screen time count.
Overall go for the movie if you want to witness some beautiful locations and tragic love story but don't expect the magic by the director as he has made some tremendous movies in the past.
