With movies like Pyare Mohan, Shaadi Se Pehle and Saawan, it'll be no surprise should 2006 turn out an annus horribilis for Bollywood.
To describe Pyare Mohan as an awful movie would be a charitable gesture.
Starring the B-grade Bollywood actors Vivek Oberoi, Fardeen Khan, Esha Deol and Amrita Rao, this misadventure is a negation of all things artistic.
Pyare Mohan's horrid script is complemented by so-so acting and mediocre music.
Pyare (Fardeen Khan) and Mohan (Vivek Oberoi) are close friends in search of the Holy Grail of love. But there's a big hurdle in their path - you see, Pyare is blind and Mohan is deaf.
Into their blind/deaf world step in two sisters Priti (Esha Deol) and Priya (Amrita Rao), skimpy attire and all. The girls are aspiring singers who have come to Mumbai with dreams of making it big.
Seeing (only figuratively since Pyare is blind) in the nubile things the answers to their prayers, Pyare and Mohan quickly fall for Priti and Priya respectively.
The girls respond affectionately to Pyare and Mohan. But once Pyare and Mohan openly declare their love, the sisters coldly dismiss the romantic proposals stating they cannot be tied to individuals with such handicaps. Priti and Priya tell the young men that they were looking at them merely as friends.
Having delivered the bombshell, the girls head off to Thailand for a music show. En route in the plane, they run into a dreaded gangster Don Tony (Bomman Irani), who's now holed up in Bangkok after faking his death.
Once off the plane, Don Tony kills a priest in the airport and vamooses. Seeing the murder weapon in the girls' hands, the Thai police arrest Priti and Priya and haul them off to jail.
Upon hearing the news, the lovelorn Pyare and Mohan rush to Bangkok to help the damsels in distress. To prevent the girls from being killed by Don Tony's henchmen, Pyare and Mohan contrive to get arrested and are thrown into the same jail.
A major culprit of this unfunny comedy is the absolutely horrid script that leaves just no hope for this movie.
Esha Deol lacks the charm, vivacity and acting abilities of her "Dream Girl" mother Hema Malini. Amrita Rao's acting skills are only slighly better. As for Vivek Oberoi, subtlety is not a word in his lexicon.
Fardeen Khan looks silly moving about without even a blind man's stick. And, horror of horrors, this blind man even drives a car in Bangkok's notorious traffic.
The music is sheer cacophony. No memorable tunes here.
In Pyare Mohan, director Indra Kumar has cobbled up a poor excuse for entertainment.- Copyright SearchIndia.com.
