Memento remade Bollywood style. The highly stylized action scenes are kind of fun to watch. It has the usual musical interludes that seem totally out of place to me but I found the music pretty good and so were the dance numbers. I found the lengthy backstory jarringly out of synch with the style of the rest of the film. The story is disjointed and poorly paced. Much of the acting is unrealistic and hammy but the star, Surya Sivakumar, is really quite effective at times. In sum, it is a film with a lot of negatives but still fairly entertaining. Its two charismatic stars get most of the credit for my giving it three stars.
