First off, this was Sunny Deol’s first stint in directing. It was also a box-office flop. That’s two facts you’ll find out about this movie in just about every source that refers to it. Other than that, there’s nothing else really interesting to say about it production-wise. Now as for the story, not the most original plot I’ve ever come across. Two brothers on opposite sides of the spectrum end up falling for the same girl, and loyalties are tested. I’ve seen this plot done well, and I’ve seen it done poorly. But how does Dillagi carry it out?
The credits roll over bright pink silk with a cheery tune in the background. Immediately you might wonder: is this a drama or a light-hearted romantic comedy? Furthermore, the credits last about 5 seconds before the real movie begins…and we see Vikram (Rishi Kapoor) at the temple praying. He catches sight of Sunita (Poonam Dhillon) and watches her leave. He follows.
