Alag could have been like Edward Scissorhands, a poignant exploration of what it means to be a ‘freak’ in an uncaring world. But, it turns out to be just another logic-defying weepie.

Purva (Mirza) is the ladylove who, unlike papa, is intelligent enough to offer him dark glasses for UV protection! And evil scientist Dyer (Alter) wants him for a guinea pig. Yawn!
