Director: Sawan Kumar Tak
Star Cast: Salman Khan, Prem Chopra, Salloni Aswani, Kapel Jhaveri
Saawan Kumar's SAAWAN - THE LOVE SEASON tackles a novel theme. It tells the story of a man who predicts the future. Whether it's the death of a person at 9 p.m. or a major accident on the Mumbai-Pune Expressway or the leading lady's death on a dreadful Friday, the man knows it all. An exciting concept but not all interesting concepts result in successful films.
Raj [Kapil Jhaveri] and Kajal [Saloni Aswani], both from Mumbai, meet in Cape Town. It's love at first sight for Raj, but Kajal doesn't reciprocate. But Raj wins her over and all's well. Raj confides to his father [Ranjeet] about Kajal, while Kajal tells her father [Prem Chopra] about Raj. The two fathers meet and realize that they're actually childhood friends. The engagement date is fixed -- on Kajal's birthday -- but Kajal bumps into an unexpected man [Salman Khan] in the day, who not only saves her from an accident, but forewarns her that her father would die at 9 p.m. that same night.
The father actually dies at 9 p.m. Kajal starts believing in the unexpected man and wants to know her future. That's when the man tells her that she would die on Friday, two days later. The remainder is about the girl wanting to live life fullest in those two days, before her demise.
The plot of the film is very weak and lackluster. The love story is as old as the hills and the ineresting part is that of Salman Khan who can see the future but that does not do much for the film. The climax of the film is most illogical and ridiculous. Saawan Kumar isn't in form this time. Aadesh Shrivastava's music is pathetic. Cinematography [Rajendra Prasad] is excellent. Salman Khan's role and performance is okay. The actor mostly sleep walks through the entire performance. Kapil is okay. Saloni gets more footage and she does leave an impression. Rest of the cast lend able support.
On the whole Saawan-The Love Season has a very weak story line and you can give this film a miss.
