Movie Review: Tell Me O Kkhuda (2011)

Users Rating: [ratings] ★★★☆☆
Box Office: Flop

Tania Kapoor (Esha Deol), an author is the much-loved daughter of retired Colonel Kapoor (Farooq Shaikh) and Shikha (Deepti Naval) who discovers by accident that she is an adopted child and roping in her boyfriend Jai (Arjan Bajwa) and best buddy Kuki (Chandan Roy Sanyal), Tania sets off to Rajasthan to trace her father following a clue derived from hospital files. In Rajasthan, she comes across Abhay Singh (Vinod Khanna) a typical Rajput from a royal family who is firm but fair. The royal family however desires a male heir and Tania decides to win the heart of Abhay Singh through a camel race and convince him that daughters are as good as sons.

Having completed this mission and discovering that she is not the daughter of Abhay Singh, Tania then sets off to Istanbul on the basis of another clue which leads her to the house of Altaf Zardari (Rishi Kapoor), whose wife Zainab (Meltem Cumbul) is living in a world of her own after undergoing the trauma of losing her infant to a hospital fire. Tania believes that she has met her mother after all (Tania was born in the same hospital at the time of the fire) and starts about treating her using amateur techniques, which surprisingly work. However, Altaf confesses subsequently that he had used Tania to cure his wife and that their child is dead and buried indeed.

Her heart broken again, Tania then drags off her two hapless male companions off to Goa where the final clue lies-in the form of Anthony Costello (Dharmendra), a Godfather-ish gangster with a heart of gold. Hema Malini also puts in a cameo as the mother of Tania, who had put up the daughter for adoption after Anthony, the father of the girl was sent to prison for his criminal activities.

In a highly predictable climax, the daughter is united with her father Anthony after a fight sequence involving rival gangsters in which the other two gents Abhay and Altaf also step in to lend their support. Like all fairy tales, the princess marries the prince at the end of the movie, with her doting father(s) smiling benignly in the background.
