The plot of Vikram Bhatt's Red about a deadly dil, just forces you to look at the exit, writes Khalid Mohamed.

Aftab Shivdasani, Celina Jaitly, Amrita Arora


Vikram Bhatt



After Red, you might just turn into the colour of an ash-tray. This film noir of sorts is about a oven-hot woman (Celina Jaitly, to live for), a man colder than a thousand frigidaires (Aftab Shivdasani, forget wood, he’s rubber) and a dead man’s heart (relief, director Viks spares you the surgery). And it turns out to be as entertaining as Mahesh Bhatt without a microphone.

Certainly, Jaitly and Shivdasani go for each other’s lips as if they were vacuum cleaners. Himesh Reshammiya’s music score is worth remarking for Tera chehra aafreen.

Snag: the plot about a deadly dil, all sorts of bozos playing boss, Amrita Arora getting much less space than she gets in the gossip columns, and finally some funky flutes of poison sharbats, all force you to look at the exit..and run through the streets as fast as your feet can carry you home. Stay indoors and you’ll be safe from this laali-paap.
