Someone got so excited with the idea of having two gun-toting lovers, the man a mild sort of UP-ite and the woman a foul mouthed firecracker, going around shooting stuff, robbing banks, and having sex at every opportunity…they forgot about the rest of the story…

There is a villain, Damandeep, huge, hulking, wooden, Richa’s possessive lover and kingpin of the drugs gang in Delhi but not much more. The entire film is just about Richa and Nikhil blowing stuff up – with guns or without. The dialogue is interesting, funny in parts but that’s about as good as it gets, with the highly predictable, stretched end just not working.

The best part of the movie are the sequences set to RD Burman’s classy music and Kishore’s voice from the song “Pyaar Mein Dil Pe Maar De Goli”. Nikhil delivers a competent performance, Richa looks every inch the patakha, in bed and off it, with many Indian style (censored) sex scenes (in a train, on tomatoes, in a car, in a bank locker room) thrown in to garner an audience but unfortunately, the rest of the film doesn’t really rise up to the challenge.

Have not seen this movie, but one of the plays 'Trivial Disasters' sometime back... Performing in front of an audience must be so difficult... To remember such lengthy dialogues.. In parts, found it quite funny, when Richa is getting her nails filed at the Beauty Parlour and is only too happy to know that her husband has been kidnapped..
