Gracy Singh in Dekh Bhai DekhMovie Cast: Siddharth Koirala, Gracy Singh, Raghuveer Yadav, Vijay Raaz; Director: Rahat Kazmi; Rating: 1 out of 5.

‘Dekh Re Dekh’, which started life as `Dekh Bhai Dekh’ till a court order prevented its use, is an odd-bod. It’s set in the middle of nowhere, populated with nowhere people, busy getting nowhere slowly.

There’s a village which has a pond, a temple, a palace and a haunted ‘haveli’, and a foursome which wants to get rich, very, very quick. Siddharth needs the money to buy himself a job, Raghuveer an MLA’s seat, Gracy an ‘out’ of her hideous marriage, and Vijay—well, he’s a thief, so he needs to steal to keep his hand in.

They tumble around each other, and fetch up in a dark ‘haveli’, in which lives a long-haired woman who looks as if she’s off her rocker. Gracy, the chirpy ‘gaon ki chori’ wooed by Aamir in ‘Lagaan’, looks as if she’s at the end of her tether: anyone would if they had to roam around with poison in their bodice, waiting for a chance to use it. And poor Raghuveer and Vijay, who deserve better, appear appallingly lost.

Clearly, the film has been made for an audience. Question is, who’s going to watch it?
