Expectations

Rajeev Khandelwal made his mark popular TV serials like 'Kahin To Hoga' and 'Left Right Left'. After which he made his mark in Bollywood with 'Aamir' followed by 'Shaitan' and many more including 'Table No.21'. Almost all his films have been small films, but very high on the content level. Thus, after the first trailer of his latest film 'Fever', there is a slight amount of expectation among all those who love good cinema.

Story

'Fever' is a story of Armin (Rajeev Khandelwal) who loses his memory in a car accident in the valleys of Switzerland. Except for his name, he does not remember anything. Armin keeps getting flashes of his past followed by some hallucinating visions, due to which he is not able to understand the real picture. At that time he met a fellow tourist Kavya (Gauahar Khan) and feels like knowing her. After knowing Armin’s condition, Kavya tries to help him to regain his identity.

The 'Glitz' Factor

The one liner story is interesting, but has been shown in many films. The camera work is of top notch and all the locations of Switzerland and Paris are outstanding.There are many songs in this film and none of them does justice to the flow of the film.

On an individual basis, 'Kharaa Khaara' and couple of more songs are melodious with good visuals attached to it.

Director Rajeev Jhaveri makes a decent film with good locations, actors and basic one liner story idea. Despite of the predictable and lame climax, the director still manages to keep you involved in this lethargic film due to the curiosity factor.

Rajeev Khandelwal looks great and does his part with ease. Gauahar Khan adds the glamour value and lends good support.

The 'Non-Glitz' Factor

There is nothing new or exceptional. In such movies the screenplay has to be gripping and intriguing. Sadly, in this movie is slow, boring, dragging and lethargic. Every movement happens on a snail pace and has loads of repetitive scenes and situation.

The writers try their best to make the story complicated, but at the end of the day they fail miserably. The first half takes its full time to establish the plot. The story comes back on its track for a while post interval, but again goes into forced complicated mode. The finale is predictable and not up to the mark.

The reasons shown in the film for the arguments and murders are silly. The screenplay and story narration lets the director down due to which the movie ends up as a super stretched film. As for Rajeev Khandelwal, films like 'Fever' are way below his potential and should focus more on doing films which enhances his acting skills. Gemma Atkinson and Victor Banerjee are wasted.

Final 'Glitz'

'Fever' is a technically decent film, but lacks over the soul part. The movie is super slow with minimal happenings. It tests your patience level due to idiotic screenplay, after which one might have to seek a doctor to take a headache pill.
