Bobby Khan decided to make a visually appealing movie. And he succeeds. Sometimes though, it helps if beyond the visual appeal there is a story. It helps if there is a plot line beyond the neckline. But, Bobby decides that Sunny in one avatar isn't enough. So he gives her a reincarnation story. A Rajasthani girl in her previous life, Sunny is now a model. What's common between those two avatars? The skimpiness of the costumes. Little did we know that gorgeous women from Rajasthan 300 years back had personal stylists. She had a fan too, for who she was the muse, a man who desperately wants to sculpt her, to satisfy his hormonal, nay, artistic needs.
Amidst some random gay jokes, the past and present and a decently sung acoustic melody, the movie is all about the camerawork. At times it tries to capture the scenic beauty of the locations and at times it is distracted by a beautiful Sunny who reminds you of quite a few yesteryear actresses breaking barriers with their bold roles. For Sunny, this is not nearly bold. For her, attempting to act is more of a boldness than the skin show which directors are making her do these days.
While the narrative, songs and excellent cinematography are interwoven to give you a taste of artistry, you cannot help wonder how much better it would have been if the director picked an actual story and used the resources at his disposal. While good looking guys hamming it away is not something new to us, the movie needed one saving grace in the least and the lady playing the titular role hasn't given that to us.
