No, I didn't watch it there, but that is where it belongs.
It could have been shortened at least a half an hour by taking out all those love songs and walking through the field or on the beach, but I guess that's Bollywood.
I watched it because the lead (Kunal Khemu) came from Kashmir after terrorists threw out his family and ended up in Mumbai. A timely story, but he wasn't fighting terrorists, he was searching for those who took pictures of he and his wife on their honeymoon and plastered them on the Internet. No, you won't see anything - they don't even kiss on screen.
But, we do get a little samurai action towards the end as one man finds his conscience. Of course our hero destroys the porn business, releases all the girls, and rides off into the sunset with the star (Deepal Shaw).

No, I didn't watch it there, but that is where it belongs.
A newly wedded couple caught on camera during their honeymoon in a hotel. Their porn videos are released on the net... The girl commits suicide and the guy wants revenge on the people... A movie that deals with Pornography, which according to its promoters is a 1.56 billion dollar. Exceptionally brilliant music--- Jal's Aadat and Rahat Fateh Ali Khan's Jiya Dhadak Dhadak. All seemed so well and perfect that anybody, just like me, would get motivated to watch with this movie which deals with the pornography industry. So one fine Saturday, I get the DVD, play it and guess what??? BANG! The movie's a complete disaster! Its not like the movie's that bad as I felt about it but its just that the writer (Mahesh Bhatt) and the director (Mohit Suri) needed to do a lot more homework than what they actually did while making this movie. This movie could have been great had the script not have so many loops and holes in it.
I mean picture this- A guy who is so poor that he works in a gym as a trainer and gets such a low salary that he lives in a one-room flat. After getting married to the girl he falls in love with (whose entry itself is very stupid), he cannot to afford to spend one night in a hotel and his friend actually pays for his stay with his wife for their honeymoon but bang bang! When the guy gets trapped in the porn controversy and is labelled a porn star, he has enough cash to get himself a lawyer and guess what? He can go to Switzerland (Mr. Director, care to explain how?_ on his own expense and after reaching there he hires a guy Ali (Emraan Hashmi) who's a pimp (yes, he has enough cash to hire the guy).
Other than that, Deepal Shaw is another pain and it only feels great to see she's not getting any more work. Her story of how she became a porn star is funny as hell! Ashutosh Rana is completely wasted and so are the beautiful numbers, Aadat and Jiya Dhadhak Dhadhak and for die hard Jal fans (like me) it was way too irritating to see Mr. Bhatt waste another good track in a shady film.
Other than that, Amrita Singh carries the film entirely on her shoulders with a lot of help from the music. Kunal Khemu is a good actor but for some reason, just doesn't have that much needed charm which is needed in a leading man.
Mohit Suri's sister is there because she's Mohit Suri's sister even if she does look like a man who needs to shave! Wonder why they took her! Emraan's character was forcefully pushed into the script (just like Shahrukh's was in Shakti) and it very much shows on screen. However, its Emraan whose entry adds that zing to the movie and makes it watchable till the end. Had they worked harder on the script before getting the movie rolling and had they chosen someone else to play Kunal Darr's character, this movie could have made it to the list of some of the greatest movies produced by the Bhatt camp. A great plot badly written with mixed performances and great music end up making an overall average movie which you wouldn't regret nor cherish watching.
Well, Kalyug is definitely a hard hitting subject which has been dealt with a decent direction , but not really exciting direction. The star cast is decent with Kunal showing some good potential, amrita Singh in a good negative character of the porn queen who wants to be numero uno in porn industry replacing Hustler and Playboy. But the lady shows more of hungry and lust full character with a weird sense of business. Hmm , this really doesn't show much talent of the director . deepal shaw is good till the moment she is exposing herself and is keeping quiet. The other actress , if I am not wrong her name is similie is good looking , may be she can get work in another few movies. A surprise package is apna desi porn star Imraan Hashmi , who looks at least better than his previous sex flicks and extra marital saga as he doesn't get a chance to lock lips with any of the ladies in this film and try some piece of acting. The songs are really the pull factor of movie as one doesn't want to leave chair while the songs are being played on. Songs are in fact , the strongest point of any movie from bhatt camp. Overall, the movie can be watched in spare time and its not really bad, I mean you can have at least have break even on the ROI (return on investment ).
