Great film
6 December 2005 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Kaante boasting of a dream star cast, is among the finest action films made in India. Though there are some loop holes in the story but the slick direction and great performances more than make up for the deficit. Technically the film seems to be flawless, with stylish direction, great music, amazing background scores and breathtaking camera work. The story is about 6 NRIs who plan to pull of a robbery, with one of them turning out to be an undercover cop. All the lead actors portray the character with great aplomb. Amitabh Bachchan is great as always as the leader of the group. Suniel Shetty, Kumar Gaurav and Lucky Ali also do a good job, but the surprise package is débutant Mahesh Mangrakar, who surprises with his amazing comic timings and keeps you alive with his one liners. But it's Sunjay Dutt who steals the show with his invincible screen presence. Though the movie is inspired by Reservior Dogs, but that doesn't stop it from being a great movie watching experience. Worth your time...!!
