The Vaada Raha... I Promise Movie Review

The promise of a sound sleep
By Nikhil Kumar
Rating: 1/5

Since when did young kids begin talking like the wise old grandpas? Well, the child in Vaada Raha wisecracks with such insight that might leave the lungi-clad pseudo gurus on bhakti channels scampering for cover.

Jokes apart, ‘Vaada Raha’ is about hope, hope that a young kid gives to a man who’s lost the will to live. Dr. Duke Chawla (Bobby Deol) lives an ideal life. He’s got a beautiful girlfriend (Kangana Ranaut); he’s been honoured for his unique research on cancer; he’s got a loyal set of friends and other things (including a dog) that make his life perfect. But one accident turns his life topsy-turvy.

Duke is paralyzed and his girlfriend dumps him the first thing. Devastated and having lost the desire to live, the hospitalized Duke refuses to eat or take his medicines. And then, a kid (Dwij Yadav) enters his life like a little angel. At first the sulky and brooding Duke spurns the kid’s advances. Slowly as the paralyzed doc and the kid become friends, a miracle begins to happen.

The said ‘miracle’ that follows is not hard to guess. We have seen similar stuff in dozens of Bollywood films where an invalid, tapping on the inner strength, overcomes his or her deformity.

‘Vaada Raha’ is neither inspiring nor enlightening. At best it is a fluffy, emotional tale that might appeal to the sentimental folks given to pulling out their kerchiefs at meager doses of melodrama. Yes, Bobby Deol does pack in a nice performance and Dwij Yadav too is good, but director Samir Karnik could have ensured a better script. The writing is plain mediocre, to say the least, and the plot has certain twists that are hard to digest. Kangana, Mohnish Behl and Sharat Saxena deliver forgettable performances.

In an age when Bollywood filmmakers are reaching out for new milestones through daring and experimental themes, ‘Vaada Raha’ reeks of the old-world sentimentality. Watch it only if you have a taste for such melodrama. For others the movie works like a valium.

Snzzzz!
