Gayaab-Story of Limited Imagination!

What do you expect from a movie which has got an invisible man as its main ingredient and has been roasted in the production house of RAM GOPAL VERMA.The expectations were really high and I on my part was expecting a laugh riot with an extra dash of sensuality. Unfortunately the movie fails to grip your imagination.The kind of possibilities that this movie could have explored were unlimited and in this age when every second hollywood movie comes with special effect e.g Spiderman-2 , GAYAAB seems to be from the pre stone age era.

The camera work has been used more to highlight the physical assets of the Heroine(Antara Malli) rather than concentrate on the core subject of the movie.Bollywood iteslf has churned out better stuff in the form of ''Mr. India'' which was a good 15 years ago,hence a slicker version was expected this time.

The story line is more or less a hackneyed one. Our hero is an underdog who gets this amazing invisible power, initially he uses the power to meet his own selfish ends he is then corrected by the heroine of the movie and finally he becomes the ''friendly neighbourhood invisible man''.The storyline is inspired from the hollywood blockbuster, Spiderman but thats where the comparison ends!

The starcast selected for the movie is more or less perfect. Tushaar (is it a single ''s'' or a double ''s''..o hell) has done justice to the role of Vishnu Prasad, as a loser who transforms in to a superhero. He is a kind of a guy to whom you can relate easily. I would say that the dash of comedy in the movie has been thrown in by Vishnu Prasads mother, Rasika Joshi. She enacts the role of a dominating wife & a ruthless mother with perfection. Raghuvir Yadav as Vishnu Prasads father acts with the usual class. Antara Mali adds glamour to the movie and tries to make the best of the part handed over to her. She enacts the role of the ''hot padosan'' with considerable ease and though in the second half of the movie she becomes metamophoses into a''bhartiya naari''.

Despite the shortcomings the movie is not so bad on the whole. Director PRAWAAL RAMAN was probably given a shoestring budget to complete the movie. He was the man behind ''DARNA MAANA HAI'' and I feel that the guy is capable of better stuff. He has the capability to handle experimental subject and thats what he should do more.
