The Making Of... segment of this DVD release introduces you to the the writer duo that penned this film. The two tell you that the script went through 79 drafts before making the final cut.

Doesn't really show, though.

It's when everybody starts believing they have a hit franchise on their hands that the problem begins. The biggest blunder this film makes is an open ending, usually spelling out a sequel.



Well, the film's about this freelance photographer who works with 'Jungle Weekly' so he can keep home fires burning. There's very little coming his way and the bills are piling up.

He spends time talking to pigeons and ogling at a gal in the opposite building. His grandpapa leaves him an inheritance, one that he discovers, is a camera. Not just any ordinary point-and-click, but one that tells you the future.

Problem really is, we live in a time when the kind of camera that Neil's character Ray Acharya uses, is ancient history. In the age of memory cards, it's really very difficult to buy the kind of film Ray's camera uses.

But the reason for droning on and on about a camera when the cast includes Bipasha and Neil Nitin Mukesh, can be summed up in the director's very scholarly observation in the Making Of... interview, "The camera is the X-factor of the film."

So why waste myu00a0 time talking about anyone or anything else? It's about a camera everyone's after, that's it.

Watch out for Bipasha gushing about Surti, "He's my softest director. He's very lenient..." Are all your other directors strict taskmasters, Bips? That's something we'd like to know.
