Dated and stale...not worth it!
The movie consists of a very strong message. It implies that Hindu and Muslim can dwell peacefully by staying in same place. But what's wrong with Khuda Kasam is that it is unbelievably long, dull and routine storyline. Khuda Kasam (UA) is the story of the fight of a brave truck driver, Hussain (Sunny Deol), and an honest CBI officer, Neetu Singh (Tabu), against a corrupt politician, Bhawani Prasad Lalla (Ashish Vidyarthi) and his cronies.
The corrupt home minister of Bihar, Bhawani Prasad Lalla (who calls himself BPL), carries on illegal weapons smuggling and plans the murder of the state's chief minister in order to install Lakhan Singh (Mukesh Rishi) as the jailor of the Central Jail. Aiding him in this misdeed is his friend, Assistant Superintendent of Police, Waghmare (Govind Namdeo). After the CM's death, BPL cries foul but installs a puppet CM in his place. Terrified that Neetu will spill the beans, BPL orders Waghmare to kill her.
On the other hand, Hussain, who used to work as BPL's driver before he was put in jail by his employer on false charges, is set free after completing his sentence. He seeks revenge on BPL but his mother, Fatima (Farida Jalal), makes him promise that he will not indulge in violence. BPL discovers Hussain's weakness and teases him. Finally, Hussain has to break his vow when Shanti Devi (Beena Banerjee), Fatima's visually-challenged friend – who is also Neetu's mother – is kidnapped by BPL. Fatima tells Hussain that, years ago, Shanti had saved his life from a rioting mob. She pleads him to go and rescue Shanti even at the cost of his own life. In the meanwhile, Neetu returns as Miss Madonna, a London-based pop star and woos BPL. Blindly in love, BPL shoots Waghmare and disowns Lakhan Singh at Neetu's instance. By the time BPL realises that Miss Madonna is actually Neetu, it is too late. Lakhan Singh has become a witness against him in the murder case of the chief minister and Neetu Singh has fled to Delhi with all the evidence against him. He makes a last desperate attempt to rein in Neetu by kidnapping Shanti Devi. But Hussain gets the better of him.
As far as the performances are concerned, Sunny Deol acts and fights like in many of his earlier films. Tabu is wasted in an unbelievable double role. Her English accent as Miss Madonna is fake and jarring. And the rest of the cast is...well, why bother!
On the whole, Khuda Kasam is a weak fare. It also looks dated and stale because of the script and also given the fact that it was in the cans for many years.
