Karma Aur Holi - Movie Review

Karma Aur Holi Half way through Karma Aur Holi , you wonder what kind of bad karma got you in the theatre to watch this yawn of a film.

Few things are as amusing as a film that takes itself seriously but only makes the audiences laugh with its sheer superficiality. 'Karma Aur Holi' is one such. Crammed with a host of characters - the mere mention of whose names could eat the space for a movie review - 'Karma Aur Holi' could be a study on what a movie should not be.

Set in the US, it tells a tangled story surrounding a bunch of Indian and American characters. Dev ( Randeep Hooda ) and Meera ( Sushmita Sen ) throw a bash for friends and relatives on the eve of Holi, the festival of colours. What begins as an evening of revelry takes a serious turn after the guests get drunk and indulge in an impromptu exercise of making honest confessions. As skeletons tumble out of each closet, we realize that none of the characters is what he or she appears at first glance.




Directed by Manish Gupta, 'Karma Aur Holi' is aimed as a film on inter-relationship complexities and dark personal secrets, but its muddled script, amateurish direction, and worst of all, shoddy performances, make it just a pseudo gobbledygook on the matters of heart and mind. There is no development of characters, no progression in the plot, and after a while the film moves at a pace that can put even a snail to sleep. And we, reviewers, are humans after all.

Sush and Randeep seem to try too earnestly to perform their parts while Naomi Campbell is more wooden than a plyboard. Even the seasoned performers like Rati Agnihotri , Suresh Oberoi and Vincent Curatola are wasted. The worst of all is the dubbing. Imagine Naomi speaking Hindi in Tamil accent!

And mind you! All those raunchy posters that promise the titillation-seekers that there would be some kind of 'action' in this Karmasutra need to be torn down at once. More 'action' can be caught sifting through TV channels than sitting through this boring flick.
