Production values triumph over the script in “Tumko na bhool paayenge,” an enjoyable but schizophrenic drama about an amnesiac whose past suddenly catches up with him. Much-hyped Salman Khan starrer has performed below expectations since release in late February, generating only midrange returns, but features good musical numbers and fine, contrasted perfs by its two female leads.

Khan is Vir, son of a wealthy Rajasthani (Sharat Saxena) and engaged to a cute airhead, Muskaan (Diya Mirza, charming). When his wedding is interrupted by guys with guns, his father tells him he’s actually adopted, so Vir sets off to Mumbai to solve the violence-filled visions that have been plaguing him. There he meets stunner Mehak (Sushmita Sen, relaxed as ever), who claims to be his ex-g.f., a cop (Mukesh Rishi) who knows him as “Ali,” and the over-friendly Inder (Inder Kumar), who says he’s an old friend. Thereon, think “The Long Kiss Goodnight” with a gender switch. Pic’s first half, set in scenic Rajasthan, is simply a picturesque lead-up to the plot-heavy second part in Mumbai. Khan looks mostly on autopilot here, but pacing is mostly brisk and occasional f/x smooth.
