Yakeen: About love, distrust and amnesia

Yakeen is a noteworthy directorial debut by dialogue writer Girish Dhamija. But the movie is not gripping enough to be labeled as an edge-of-the-seat thriller.

Starring Arjun Rampal and Priyanka Chopra in lead roles, Yakeen seems to have the ingredients that go into making a thriller. But somehow the final product lacks the punch that sends shivers down the spines of those expecting a thrilling celluloid experience.




The movie begins with an accident. Arjun Rampal plays a business tycoon Nikhil, and Priyanka Chopra plays his wife Simar. The husband and wife meet with an accident after their car falls off a cliff. While Simar comes out of the accident with minor injuries, Nikhil is hospitalized. He loses his memory.

Nikhil begins reconstructing his past life slowly with the help of Simar and his business associates. As the pieces of jigsaw puzzle begin to fit, Nikhil realizes that something is amiss. And then random flashbacks from his memory create suspicion in his mind regarding his wife. It seems that she was having an affair with a man named Kabir (Sudhanshu Pandey) around the time when the accident happened.

Nikhil hires a private detective (Saurabh Shukla) to unravel the mystery of his past and his wife's infidelity. What follows is a series of unpleasant revelations for Nikhil. The movie's unexpected climax hits the viewers like a bolt out of the blue.

Yakeen starts off very well and keeps you glued to the screen in the initial reels, but then a series of songs, despite their proper placement, breaks the story's momentum. And in spite of the developments in the plot in the second half, the movie loses its grip over you.

The climax somewhat compensates for the lukewarm second half, but not well enough.
