Karz, a remake of the Rishi Kapoor reincarnation drama of the same name (the film that also inspired Kamal's Enakkul Oruvan), is the latest remake of an old Hindi film. Here, Dino Morea plays the rich man who is killed by his wife Urmila and is then reborn as a singer(played by Himesh Reshammiya). Haunted by visions of his past life, Himesh tries to find answers to his questions. I don't remember much about the original Karz but I do remember Enakkul Oruvan and the story is here not exactly the same since even the bad guy is different. But inspite of that, the director makes the curious decision to reveal the reasons and the culprit behind Dino Morea's death right at the beginning. So there's no suspense about who exactly Himesh is a reincarnation of. Urmila's culpability and Himesh's lack of knowledge about it takes the movie in an interesting direction but it ends in a rather lame way. The villain would rank among the silliest villains in a film that isn't trying to be a comedy. The film is packed with songs but barring Ek Hasina Thi... and the background score it provides, both of which are borrowed from the original film, the songs sound similar to one another.
