Storyline

Secret Service Agent, Karan Menon (Kay Kay) has been assigned the task of penetrating the gang and winning the confidence of underworld don, Shastri (Vallabh Vyas). Karan does so with ease, however, problems arise when he falls for Shastri's deputy's Girish (Prashant Narayan) sister, Padmini (Jaya Seal). He then starts to sympathize with Shastri and Girish and attempts to convince his Department, in vain. His Department assumes that he is now a out of control rogue agent, and he stops getting any support from them. And at the same time he must face the wrath of Shastri and Girish when they find out that they have been harboring a policeman in their midst. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Not terribly inventive but really entertaining.
23 October 2002 | by (Switzerland) – See all my reviews

"Chhal" is no "Company", but it's a good Bollywood gangster movie. It tells the "Donnie Brasco"-inspired story of undercover cop Karan (Kay Kay) who is assigned to bring down the mighty gangster Shastri and his right hand man, the uncontrollable Girish (Prashant Narayanan).

The interesting twist is that Karan gets problems with his loyalty. The gangsters are not shown as sympathetic, but they give Karan more support than he gets from his colleagues of the law enforcement.

The main actors are rather fresh faces and give solid performances. The director wants to add to the freshness with a hip style. That's only partially successful. All the jump cuts, the fast cutting and the alternations of color draw a little bit too attention to themselves. But it's far from being a distraction.

While not being inventive, revolutionary or perfect, "Chhal" tells an interesting story with good, fresh actors and an involving directorial style. That's enough for a solid

7/10.
