You must be out of your mind and senses to actually go and watch this nonsense movie. What was Karan Johar thinking when he said yes to the script? Krish Thapar (John Abraham taking on the name of India's Tigerman (Valmik Thapar) is a tiger expert while his wife Riya (Esha Deol) is a photographer. He is assigned the task of finding out the truth about tigers who have suddenly become man-eating tigers. Dev Malhotra (Vivek Oberoi) along with girlfriend Ishika (Lara Dutta) and two friends are also on their way to the park when they run over a black cat. Their vehicle breaks down and they hire another vehicle. Krish has his National Geographic jeep breakdown on the way and then he and Riya hop into Dev's vehicle. They decide to spend the night at a guesthouse where the tourist guide is killed. Earlier Krish's driver too mysteriously vanishes. And soon they come face to face with tigers. Here comes Kaali Pratap Singh (Ajay Devgan) and the tigers run away when they see him. He saves their lives. But one of Dev's friends who has gone out on a hunt alone is hunted down himself. It's time for these people to leave because the man in charge of the forest Khan (Parmeet Sethi) insists that they leave immediately. They leave the camp but it seems someone doesn't want them to leave. Slowly, the number is down from six to four. And it seems that someone or something out there is on a hunt to kill all of them one by one. The story is supposed to be a suspense thriller but suspense is totally missing from the film. The scenes are so predictable that you can tell what is going to happen next without even thinking. Some of the scenes are so illogical that one wonders whether it was really required and if yes, for what purpose. There is absolutely no story line, the direction is horrible, cinematography is pathetic, there is no special effects, the camera work and sound effect is irritating and performance is third grade. Kaal had an interesting plot but all of that falls through, because of huge holes in the script, corny dialogues and typical overdone Bollywood drama and a lot of hype. Please dont waste your time on this film.
