pathetic performances by all, poor writing, very badly shot, clueless direction
Watch it for titillation if you do not have access to youtube
Vikram Bhatt has given some real bad films in last few years. Now he is back with another erotica with new faces.
Saru, full name Saraswati, is an obedient daddy’s girl. Inder is a broody, massively-tattooed loner. And ‘Sanam Teri Kasam’ , not to be confused with the ’82 film of the same name, is a manual of how Not to make a contemporary romantic film.
Picture this: a heavy-handed father who thunders, flinging out instructions on how wife and daughters ought to behave. Falling in love with an unsuitable boy, ‘aiyyo rama’. Acting on your own will, ‘parmeshwara’. Doing what your heart tells you to, ‘aaj se thum mere liye marr gayi’.
Which leaves Saru (Mawra Hocane) to smile, simper, weep. Hesitate. Propitiate. And to look at her stony-faced father (Chowdhary, trying very hard to be a credible South Indian patriarch and failing) who’d rather conduct a wake than understand his daughter’s desires, and wait for his ‘permission’ before she can take a step forward.

Inder (Harshwardhan Rane, armed with impressive bod, limited expression), who has daddy issues of his own, scowls and growls. The deep hurt caused by his dad is revealed much too late, and much too cursorily. The rest is filled by these two unlikely characters—Inder and Saru—developing feelings, over a brain tumour, impending tragedy, and more tears.
There are films which are tasteless and then there are films which set new boundaries of bizarre writing and vulgarity in same vein. This film falls in second category. Female lead cum slut cum girlfriend cum confused soul (Patrelekha) announces its all about playing games, its all about having sex with fuck buddy (Gaurav Arora) and its all about kissing and smooching anything with two legs including a threesome. There is no plot though there are forced twists and turns and guns and murders and...God knows what!
Film has some really unintentionally funny and intentionally erotic moments which never work as ugly faces do not fit in bad sex film. Film has bad writing and screenplay is pathetic. Film
Performance wise, Gaurav Arora establishes himself as strong competitor of Karan Singh Grover with chiseled body and pathetic acting. Patralekha disappoints and disappoints big time as she chooses such film with bold role which does not hold anything but to utter nonsensical bold dialogues with equally bold scenes. After impressive debut in 'Citylights', she has lost it and might lost it forever! Tara Alisha Berry was average in 'Mastram' but here she is poor with only body show.
Film has some unintentionally funny situations. Film has crisp editing. Background music is average. Cinematography is poor, production design is good and costumes are average.
Director Vikram Bhatt continues with his clueless film making and he tries to make a cheap film only for sake of it. There is no intent or plot to make up for horrible casting.
Film will release today and it will get terrible reviews and it should record poor opening. Film has big competition from Hollywood biggie 'The Jungle Book' and it will find it tough to even register.
Go for this only if you have fetish for ugly people making out in empty cinemas!
