The plot, short and sweet: When the President of India and his daughter are abducted in Switzerland, it falls on supersoldier Army Captain Aditya Arya (Arjun Rampal) to come to the rescue. ASAMBHAV (Impossible), released theatrically in 2004, tries its darndest to be a slick, cutting edge secret agent film but falls short. Oh, the story is mildly interesting and convoluted enough as the movie introduces various conniving factions who cross into and out of each other's paths. I was kept somewhat diverted at the schemes and betrayals of the villainous cast. And it's quite a large assortment of bad guys. Because this is an Indian spy movie, we are presented with the token terrorist group, led by a Pakistan general and the stiff-shouldered, hiss worthy Youssan Baksh. Then there's the kidnappers, led by their suave leader who does sit-ups with the requisite evil hot girl. Not to mention, a gang of drug smugglers and dealers and record producers. Then, the film writer evidently felt an added plot complication was required because, on top of all these obstacles for our hero, there's also a fiendish traitor skulking in the Indian embassy.

Arjun Rampal (DIL KA RISHTA) fits the bill as the one-dimensional action hero. With his display of unremarkable acting here, he ably channels action film cheeseheads Jean Claude Van Damme and Steven Seagal. Arjun is handsome, well-muscled, and can sort of fake his way thru a martial arts showdown (although the nunchuk was overdoing it). But he's got the personality of a doorknob. Of course, we need a good looking female lead and that role falls to Priyanka Chopra, of whom I've stopped expecting great stuff in the acting department. She's beautiful, has a gorgeous body, and dances quite well. I'll settle for that.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not Worth It September 15, 2008
Format:DVD
Unless you like watching blood and guts and lot's of bad acting don't watch this movie. A couple of the song and dance numbers are good, but not that good. "Asambhav" apparently indicates "impossible to sit through."

2.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful cast, bad movie August 7, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This film has one of the most beautiful casts of any Hindi film I have seen. Arjun Rampal is one of the two best looking men in Hindi cinema (the other being John Abraham), and Priyanka Chopra is the most beautiful woman. The head kidnapper (played by Shahwar Ali) and his female hench-woman (Olga -- played by Anupama Varma) are also great looking, as is the Indian President's daughter, played by Dipannita Sharma. There is also a secret traitor who is quite stunning, and a number of bikini-clad girls are seen lounging around whenever there is a swimming pool present. The overall story has promise, and there are some intriguing plot twists. These qualities would seem to make for a satisfying action-adventure movie. However, as the architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe famously said, "God is in the details," and the details are all bad.

The plot: The Indian President secretly flies to Switzerland with his daughter for a vacation on a secluded island in the middle of a Swiss lake. An unknown spy (or spies) in the Indian embassy in Switzerland sell this information to a band of criminals headed by Ali who is under contract to a Muslim terrorist group, Al-Hamas, to kidnap the President. During the kidnapping, the daughter is able to make a phone call, alerting the Indian authorities unbeknownst to the kidnappers. The Indian government sends in Rampal, a Captain and elite commando in the Indian army, under cover as a journalist. Meanwhile, the terrorist group must raise the money to pay Ali and his gang for the kidnapping, so they arrange to smuggle drugs into Switzerland with the aid of an expatriate Indian criminal played by Naseeruddin Shah. Shah accomplishes this by inviting a naive, beautiful singer (Priyanka Chopra) to come to Switzerland and sing in his club.

1.0 out of 5 stars It is not really uncut March 29, 2011

Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The cover says uncut but it is not so in reality. The print quality of the DVD is horrible. Should have purchased a VCD instead of a DVD.
