Sadly, Kaash... Mere Hote! relies on the age-old tricks that made masala films so popular with viewers in 1970s and 1980s. The movie throws logic out of the window [the obsessed girl is blessed with super-natural powers], unwanted songs keep popping up every 10 minutes [at times, every 5 minutes], there's a comedy track running parallel, with no connection whatsoever with the main plot.
Simply put, Kaash... Mere Hote! is archaic, outdated!
Krish [Kumar Saahil] is a fashion photographer, in love with Radhika [Sneha Ullal]. Krish gets an assignment to shoot in Mauritius, where Piya [Sana Khan] first sees him and falls in love.
Later, Krish gets a retired army officer's [Rajesh Khanna] bungalow on rent. For Piya, the army officer's daughter, it's the perfect opportunity to seduce him. Piya will kill everyone and anyone who comes in her way.
A couple of things catch you by complete surprise. B.H. Tharun Kumar, ace choreographer turned director, is a veteran, having worked with some of the finest names and also on their films. With years of experience behind him, how could he okay such a flimsy script in the first place? It's not sacrilege to be inspired by a good film [DARR], but at least update it to suit the current times. Why rely on ghisa-pita situations?
Besides, the film is meant to be the launch pad of the boy [Kumar Sahil], but as it turns out, the girl [Sana] gets the meatiest part in this enterprise. Strange, isn't it?
If the screenplay is listless, the direction is no better. Sanjeev-Darshan's music is the sole saving grace. A couple of songs are well-tuned, but the placement of songs is questionable.
Kumar Sahil needs a lot more grooming. He's extremely raw. Sneha Ullal is a pretty face with a blank expression. Sana leaves a mark. Rajesh Khanna hams. It's sad to see the ex-superstar enacting such inconsequential roles. Johny Lever raises a few laughs, but the jokes on Bachchans are in poor taste.
On the whole, Kaash... Mere Hote! is a poor show all the way.
