Tum Hi To Ho

Tum Hi To Ho

Tum Hi To Ho - takes you back to the films of 80's, totally plot less!!!

The glamour and glitz of Indian cinema attracts many to the tinsel town. It's no wonder then that Vipinno (tall hunk with 6 pack abs), a resident of Mozambique landed up in Mumbai with the same aspirations to make a debut in TUM HI TO HO, directed by Sanjay Goel.

The story at its initial stage shows that how Rajiv's (Vipinno) girlfriend Anna (played by Madhavi Sharma) dies as he couldn’t pay the hospital bill. Though Rajiv is a rich heir of Rs 300 crores empire, the family wealth is managed by his only uncle (Vishwajeet Pradhan) eccentric and wheelchair driven who refuses to help Rajiv. Losing his girlfriend is so shocking and traumatic for him that he lands up in an asylum for 2 years.

Once out, he tries to commit suicide but is saved in the nick of time by Puja (Madhavi Sharma again) whose face is similar to his deceased girlfriend Anna. One look at her face and he wants to live again sigh! The catch is Puja is married. He follows her advice to have a never say die attitude in life which propels him to kill her husband in a car accident. His ghost begins haunting them. After her husband’s demise Puja is forced to marry Rajiv and thus fulfilling his macabre dream.

Everything is hunky dory for Rajiv who is busy playing guitar and singing songs. Music by Anand - Milind though hummable doesn’t register. About the cinematography and choreography the less said the better. As for the screen - play and dialogues, the writer Rajan Agarwal seems to have picked on few blockbusters of 80’s and early 90’s to dish out Tum Hi To Ho.

Late Vivek Shauq makes his presence felt with his amazing talent so does Jaggu Dada (Jackie Shroff) who in his suave style makes a special appearance as a detective to solve the mystery of the death of Puja’s husband.

Someone should have advised Vippino to stay in Mumbai for a longer period to be a more competent actor as Bollywood acting is a different ball-game altogether. May be better luck next time, Vipinno!
