The Train: Travel at your own risk!

Another Hollywood rip-off. this time the victim is Clive Owen-Jennifer Anniston starrer ‘Derailed’. yes, victim!! because, this localised photocopy cant even stand out in the other aspects of what we call ‘movie’, and eventually dampens the (ripped) storyline. i think it’s time that the indian film-makers understand that their multiplex audience also see f-o-r-e-i-g-n philims!!!! and besides, a little more rationale also needs to be applied. For example, can can someone explain me how come all commuters in a train, or every working personnel in an office in Bangkok are Indians? Since when did we add Bangkok in our growing list of states in India? 🙂 yeh baat kuch hajam nahi huyee…

Coming back to the movie; so, if you already dont know the story of ‘derailed’, this is a mingle-mangle of a couple of adulterous affairs between hashmi (Vishal), Anjali – Vishal’s wife (sayali Bhagat), and Roma – the ‘other’ woman (Geeta Basra). The crumbling marriage leads Vishal to Nikki, whom he met in ‘the train’ and eventually runs into a complex web of incidents…

the movie has at-its-best a few moderate performances, an OK story-telling flow and a few good songs, which as usual are cinematically un-necessary. you’ll, of-course, find lots of umm-amm-ohhh smooches (thanks to Emraan Hashmi, who has ripened up as a fine soft-porn actor) and a few trying-to-be-bold scenes as a bonus for watching this movie. well, all said and done, this train needed steam to run, not kisses!!
