Wow!
24 March 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Arjun is really worth a watch, as long as you are not prejudiced towards old films and Sunny Deol.

Story is about an unemployed youth in Bombay who gets involved in crime ad politics because of the circumstances around him. The film also throws light on the hypocrisy and deception politicians use to fulfill their greedy ambitions.

Concept is good, music is just alright, dialogues are among the best with good action sequences. I feel the background score should've been more punchy for a film like this, but that's OK.

I feel they should even make a sequel to this film.
