Movie Review: Chase (2010)

Chase- Is a tame thriller

Rating: 1.5 out of 5*

Starring: Anuuj Saxena, Udita Goswami, Tarina Patel, Samir Kochhar, Rajesh Khattar and Gulshan Grover

Director: Jagmohan Mundhra

It was just last week, with the release of Jagmohan Mundhra’s Apartment we spoke about Bollywood filmmakers destroying the thriller genre by only coming out with blatant rip offs of foreign flicks or non exciting plotlines. After watching this week’s new release Chase yet another misdirected venture by Mundhra, we wish to plead to the makers that stop murdering this genre! A couple of pathetic twists and sleazy sequences don’t necessarily make a thriller.

Justifying its title, the film begins with a chase. Cops are chasing a terrorist, one Sohail Ansari (Anuuj Saxena). Though they eventually capture him, he gets injured in the proceedings. He is diagnosed with an illness called locked in syndrome and is sent to a neurological research centre so that he gets cured and spews out the names. An attractive nurse Nupur (Udita Goswami) wants to prove that Sohail is faking his illness and acting. She therefore tries to wake him up with her strip tease act. She even pushes him into the river which results in Sohail finally waking up. The rest of the film is all about what truth Sohail is carrying about a political murder and how he manages to prove his innocence to everyone.

If Jagmohan Mundhra’s direction is pure bad, the script of the film is plain ridiculous.

Anuuj Saxena’s hard work is noticeable and he succeeds in impressing. One just wishes he gets a good script to justify his talent. Udita Goswami yet again exposes (apart from her body) her limited acting range. Playing Anuuj’s journalist girlfriend in the film, Tarina Patel’s cleavage gets more scope than her acting prowess. Samir Kochhar and Rajesh Khattar provide adequate support. Gulshan Grover despite getting limited scope leaves his mark. Shammi Kapoor’s son Aditya Raj Kapoor doesn’t share the acting talent his rest family members have.

None of the technical departments impress much. Vijay Verma’s music too has no recall value. The title song seems to be lifted from BEP’s Pump It.

Chase is one of those utterly forgettable films that keep releasing at regular intervals in Bollywood and are the reason why the flop ratio in the industry is so high. So just don’t even bother to waste your efforts of going to the cinema hall for this one.
