Ranbir [Jackie Shroff] is living in marital bliss with his wife Anjali [Mahima Chaudhary]. But one phone call changes everything. On the other side of the line is Jia [Raveena Tandon], his former lover with whom he had a relationship pre-marriage, which ended when Jia turned schizophrenic. Jia informs Ranbir of a well-kept secret that tears his world apart. He has a son by his former lover! This son is now purportedly residing with a family, Prof. Mehta [Vikram] and his wife [Soni Razdan], in Goa and Jia wants Ranbir to accompany her to wish their son on his birthday. Dumbstruck, he decides to go to Goa with her. Meanwhile, Anjali suspecting something fishy decides to follow them to Goa. When Ranbir, Anjali and Jia come face to face, there are fireworks. But the trio settle the issue and meet the Mehtas and the son. The film has a mature story line but as usual the climax is disappointing. There is no justification for why things are moving at a certain manner. Multiple flashbacks, umpteen references to Ek Duje Ke Liye and the narrative do not appropriately weave into the reminiscences of the past, from the present. Director Shashi Ranjan has handled the subject very delicately and has managed to get first rate performances from the key cast. He has also handled a few sequences very well but he has failed to keep the audience glued to the seat and has completely messed up the pre-climax and climax. Anu Malik's music is melodious. Jackie, Raveena and Mahima have given outstanding performance. Pakistani actor Muammar Rana is a revelation. In a small but significant role, the actor comes across like a breath of fresh air. Gulshan Grover is likeable in a brief role. On the whole the film will have very few takers because of the mature story line and insipid climax.
