love in nepal

[elsewhere: rants on the soundtrack]

Sonu Nigam is surprisingly earnest and honest in this pathetic flick from RGV camp alumnus (wouldn't use the word "graduated" though ... ) Rajat Mukherjee. The background score and the songs have their moments. Debutante Fllora is a pain. What Rajpal Yadav does for most of the film should be familiar for people who saw him provide the running joke in Pyaar Tune Kya Kiya. The proceedings are mostly inane and dismal, simply for (a) lack of comic timing (b) a general sense of "are we making a thriller, a romantic comedy, a darkly funny entertainer, some or more of the above ?". Raj Zutshi appears only in the first half of the film, and Vijay Raaz (nice tone and demeanour) is wasted in a second-half-only limited role. Sadness in Pokhara.
