Vaada Raha – I Promise Movie Review by Sputnik

Director: Samir Karnik
Cast: Bobby Deol, Kangana Ranaut, Dwij Yadav

Duke Chawla (Bobby Deol) has a successful medical career, a doting girlfriend and dreams that are coming true until one night changes it all. A fatal car crash leaves him neck down paralyzed and puts an end to his perfect life. A man who was once an epitome of hope sees death as a better option than to live like a vegetable. The rest of the story is how Roshan (Dwij Yadav), a young boy dispels the darkness from Duke’s life by teaching him to love life.

The story is ok but the screenplay and the direction are amateurish. The movie is filled with cheesy scenes and silly comedy. The movie is basically Anand rehashed with the little kid playing Anand and Bobby playing a paralyzed Amitabh. Roshan narrates the events going on outside Duke’s room window (in what clearly looks like a set). One can clearly make out that the kid is lying. There is a small twist in the end which one can probably guess from a mile.

Bobby Deol acts well after a long time though some of his scenes are real cheesy like the one where he starts walking. Kangana Ranaut has a very small role which is more like a special appearance. She is mediocre but thankfully does not play a disturbed character this time. Dwij Yadav, the kid overacts and his constant sermonizing and trying to be cute is annoying. Mohnish Behl, who is normally restrained, overacts like anything. The rest of the cast give mediocre to ok performances.

Cinematography is ok. The dialogues are cheesy and the songs are mediocre. Samir Karnik’s every movie has Bobby Deol and Dwij Yadav and his intention seems to make Dwij Yadav look all cute and full of life. Not sure why every movie needs to be some kind of vehicle for the little kid. Samir Karnik messes up what could have been a decent movie with horrible direction.

Rating: 1 / 5 (Worse)
