Ken Ghoshâ€™s second directorial attempt, Fida is a movie about love, money, intrigue, betrayal and vengeance. Letâ€™s see how all these elements are incorporated into a single story. Fida has the punch to engage a viewer for its entire duration except a few drab sequences in between. The chemistry between Shahid and Kareena is incredible. Shahid, in particular, has the qualities that can take him far in his acting career. Fardeen Khan carries his role with ease and Kim Sharmaâ€™s marginal appearance is quite forgettable.
Cast: Fardeen Khan, Kareena Kapoor, Shahid Kapur
LOVE: It is said that love is blind. That goes true for Shahidâ€™s character Jai who sees a woman of his dreams sipping a cool beverage one day and loses his heart to her. So smitten is he with this girl Neha (Kareena) that he even swallows sleeping pills to prove his love to her. She is convinced of his love and everything is hunky dory, but only for a while.
MONEY: The very initial reels of the movie show a grand heist in which an anonymous hacker transfers a big sum of money of an underworld don into his account. Cut to Shahid and Kareena story â€“ it is Nehaâ€™s turn to make a suicidal attempt. Reason? She owes Rs 60 million to an underworld don who had lent that money to her late father. Now, it is up to her to return the money within three days or be dead. Definitely something is fishy here, but our love-struck hero Jai canâ€™t see through the smokescreen. He plans to rob a bank to pay off the debts of the woman he loves.
INTRIGUE: He visits a bank and finds a man withdrawing a big sum from his account. The man is Vikram (Fardeen). Jai attempts to rob him, but only in vain. In return Vikram offers to help Jai and strikes a deal with him that he has to confess being the hacker that the police are looking for. Caught in a catch 22 situation, Jai takes his offer, not knowing the actual plot that the conning Vikram has in mind.
BETRAYAL: It is after our â€˜gullible and love-blindedâ€™ hero confesses to police, that he begins to realize his folly and how he has been tricked. He becomes the target of donâ€™s gunmen. He flees and comes to Nehaâ€™s house where he gets the shock of his life and the entire gameplan is exposed to him. He realizes that he has been betrayed by the very people he trusted and loved. Now he only desires for only one thing â€“ VENGEANCE.
