Granted, I watched only bits and pieces of various parts on YouTube, but I didn't think it was that bad. Yeah, it feels dated, and there are gazillion and one songs, and both Himesh Reshammiya and Shweta Kumar are horribly miscast, yet I kinda liked it. I wouldn't spend money on it, but I would probably watch it if it were one of those edited-for-television, Sunday matinee movies.

I must confess, I have a tiny crush on Himesh's wig. I couldn't stop staring at it. I thought it had more personality and screen presence than the person wearing it.

Urmila, for the most part, looked good. I found her sexier and more alluring than Shweta, who, despite her pretty cat eyes, was as unremarkable on film as she was in the movie stills. I had hoped she would turn out to be one of those people who's more telegenic than photogenic, but no such luck. And the fact that she doesn't seem to possess any charisma or acting talent doesn't help, either.

I wish Dino Morea and Himesh had switched roles. While Dino is also a little long in the tooth to be convincing as a young rock star, I'd rather look at him for 2+ hours than Himesh. I'm not exactly a fan, but I definitely consider him eye candy.

From what little I saw of the original Karz, I wasn't impressed. For me, it was one of those movies that sounds more interesting than it really is. I didn't give it much of a chance, of course, but for right now, I'll trust my initial reaction of "Uhhh...I should've bought something else."
