This weekend I saw 2 movies. The first of them regrettable happened to be Ajnabi. Never trust a stranger, said the hoardings.It should've been never trust this movie. Good stars bad film.


When the film started and the titles came on, I thought,hey this might well turn out a great flick. Alas! that was my misconception.


The film starts quite abruptly, with Kareena shown praying in a temple,a mosque and a church.At all these place, she uncannily spots Bobby Deol too.Jumps to conclusions of her own, and starts running away from him from the church.And of course it had to rain, and she had to snatch his umbrella,forcing him to come after her,etc etc. Scene two..indignant papa armed with a gun opens the door and threatens poor bobby.However on finding that the poor lad has come for his umbrella,breaks into laughter (and never stops). He goes on laughing a la Santa Claus, making you wish u could stifle him.


Well, on further investigation, we learn that Bobby has come to land the job of a polo coach, and la dee dah, Mr hahaha is the president of the club and he gets the job, and the girl, ( a jarring song here) and post marriage, go to Switzerland, cause thats where his job is.


And what do u know, they bump into otherindians, who try to bring some merriment into this film. So there they are in their own villa at Switzerland and alls going well.Bobby even teaches Kareena to make dough, a la Ghost style, only there the lovers made pots, here this couple drove the audience potty.( Ooh the artificial expression on Kareena - Argh!).


One fine day, as bobby is driving along the road, he almost hits a babe on a cycle.This babe turns out to be Bipasha Basu, making her debut in films. She ofcourse looks sensuous, but she was beter off at modelling.


Our hero somes back from work,finds his wife has made a mess of her food.So off he goes to get food (no delivery huh?).


On his way out he hears a sensuous voice, and goes next door to investigate. And voila! there you have Bipasha playing the piano from most unusual positions, while our hero is stunned and hooked to the scene.By now, the music has taken a back seat of course.


As he is taking on the scene, he meets Bipasa's hubby Akshay kumar.


Soon there is a round of introductions, a jarring song about non-breaking friendship and what do you know they are best of friends.


Suddenly Bipasha makes eyes for Bobby, and he doesnt like it. But she doesn't quit. And over another jarring song ( the music is mediocre) she sort of sends out signals to Bobby. Oops I forgot to tell you all this happens at Mauritius . It is here also that Bobby eyes Akshay with another girl, whom akshay passes off as a college sweetheart.


And here it is over a few drinks (bobby doesn't have any - cause he apparently loses control), that Akshay talks to Bobby about wife swapping, and gets beaten. Their friendship breaks up. Fuming They return back to native switzerland.


From enemies they have to turn friends, and this is arranged with a bizarre mishap. Soon they are friends again, and there is party celebrating Akshay's birthday. On this day, even Bobby lets loose and starts boozing.


When they return, Akshay talks about one more for the road, and for the same they decide to stay back, while their wives go home.Here once again Akshay talks about wife swapping, and gets hit yet again. But then again, bobby goes towards Akshay's house.


Next morning, Bobby wakes up guiltily, finds himself on the bed, runs honme to find his wife cracking some comments, runs out of the house, and on the jog, imagines dangerous liasons of his wife with Akshay, set yet again to Anu Malik's jarring tunes.(And all this is Bobby's imagination guys!).When he returns from his run, he finds the cops all over Akshay's place. What do u know, Kareena informs him that Bipasha has been killed. He goes near the body.But before he can remove the sheet from her body., Akshay screams at him and accuses him of his wife's murder.Bobby is arrested taken off.


Here now we have a unique courtroom scene, all with french and hindi translations, from where bobby escapes. Geez! in our films our cops are shown as bumblers. But comeon u could have spared the swiss cops. They too are shown as bumblers.


Kareena earlier believes he is guilty, but a few senti lines and they are back together. They know he has been setup by Akshay. (He tries his best to look menacing, but he is athis most menacing when he dances, looks more like a martial arts scene.). Aided by the other comic indians, Bobby makes it to Akshays house for clues.Unable to find them, he runs into Akshay, there is more fist fights, where neither get hurt (they r Indian heroes after all).And here again Bobby escapes from the cops.Unable to find anything, bobby is frustrated and throws a book in the car at the wall.This reveals a clue, which takes him and Kareen to Geneva, where they encounter an insurance investigator (guess what? - he too is Indian), who tells Bobby, that he is on Akshays trail, cause Akshy had a $100,000,000 ($ in Switzerland?) insurance taken out on his wife.They leave together to stop payment to Aks, but he has already recvd it and has transferred the same to his account.


Now Bobby, has not told anyone, but he has an ace up his sleeve. Out of the blue he has gained the knowledge of a hacker, and he breaks into Akshay's account.Manages to find out that Akshay has transferred $100,000 to a ship leaving for Singapore (This ship left when the swiss Alps melted ot form a sea in switzerland). And What do u know, Bobby lands up on the ship with the insurance guy. He comes aboard just as Akshay is all set to put on a martial dance on jarring music.


And it is here that there is a relevation. To tell you more, would be breaking the suspense (if that is what u call it).You would probably thank me for it.Still, I would like to present an opportunity for those people who want to punish themselves and see the movie.So I'll end right here.


For those who want to know the entire story without watching the movie, you may send me a personal message and I'll get back.


Even if you do not have anything to do, trust me u r better off than watching this mediocre film.


Of the cast,Kareena looks good, has hammed most of her scenes in the beginning. Bobby is Ok. Akshay martials some performance. Bipasha looks great, but acting is a no-no. The rest of the cast are there. Johnny lever is there to make u laugh and he has tried hard.


Music by Anu Malik is a disaster.
