Director Brett Ratner brings Bollywood to Hollywood with this alternate cut of director Anurag Basu's romantic action thriller. A passionate affair leads to danger and excitement for two young lovers with nothing to lose. J (Hrithik Roshan) was left to die in the Mexican desert. Handsome and resourceful, he's one step ahead of certain death when Natasha (Bárbara Mori) blows into his life like an electrical storm. In a flash, he's smitten. Somehow, despite the deep cultural and language barriers that separate them, J and Natasha form a powerful connection. But Natasha is engaged to another man, a powerful figure who's none too pleased that his prize got away, and who would rather see her dead than in the arms of another man. Perhaps if J and Natasha can just manage to escape, they can find a place to start over, and begin a new life together. In addition to condensing the running time to 90 minutes from the original 130 minutes, Ratner also jettisoned most of the musical numbers, used alternative footage, added action sequences, commissioned a new score by Graeme Revell, and used English-language takes simultaneously with the Hindi-language version in order to appeal to American moviegoers.
