Even by Bollywood standards, Saawan - The Love Season is an awful movie.
Devoid of artistic or entertainment appeal, Saawan has no raison d'être except that someone had lots of moolah to burn.
The story is silly, the music inspid, the photography mundane and the action scenes downright juvenile.
In short, Saawan is the very antithesis of entertainment.
Two youngsters Raj (Kapil Jhaveri) and Kaajal (Salon Aswani) meet in South Africa and fall in love. The youngsters' engagement is quickly fixed by their fathers (played by yesteryear villains Prem Chopra and Ranjeet), who turn out to be old friends from Patiala.
After their South African gambols, Raj and Kaajal return to Mumbai, where the stage is now set for the director to introduce the brooding Salman Khan.
Having lost his girlfriend, Salman now only yearns to be united with her in the other world. While Salman is only too willing to exit this world, God is not ready to accept him yet.
Meanwhile our Salman, he with the long hair and melancholic countenance, is endowed with some unusual capabilities: you see, the Almighty has granted him the power to know of upcoming bad events.
Besides saving Kaajal from a bad car accident, Salman predicts, correctly as it turns out later, her father would die at 9PM on her engagement day and that there would be a major accident on the Mumbai-Pune highway involving three cars.
Astounded by Salman's accurate clairvoyant abilities, Kaajal asks him about her future. The young girl is shocked to be told that her earthly existence would end on Friday.
The two youngsters Kapil Jhaveri and Saloni Aswani are all right but cannot lift this film out of the morass it's mired in from the beginning. Although cast in an unusual role, Salman Khan does not impress partly because of the limitations imposed by the weak story.
As for the music, fuggedaboutit. The songs are just a senseless assault on the eardrums. None of the songs are likely to resonate after you leave the movie hall.
The so-called comic scenes involving Johnny Lever are absolutely assinine. While Johnny Lever is a fine actor, he has been reduced to playing the monkey in most films.
Even a blind dog finds a bone now and then. But in this entire movie, there are just no bones to be found.
Saawan has been shot in South Africa and Dubai. - Copyright SearchIndia.com.
