Matrix Matrix Wow Wow
20 June 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews


Qayamat produced by Pammi Baweja and directed by Harry Baweja is an action packed film,a multistarrer film which stars Ajay Devgan,Suniel Shetty,Arbaaz Khan,Sanjay Kapoor,Raveena Tandon,Riya Sen and Isha Koppikar with 2 debutantes 'Ashish Chowdhry' and 'Neha Dhupia'.This film has been made in a complete MATRIX style!


1.Rahul (Ashish Chowdhry):Rahul is a young brilliant hard-working scientist,and is very professional.He is a shy guy,who is not so open with his girlfriend Sheetal,But he is always ready to Save The India from The deadliest of Viruses & Threats of The Pirates, Rahul is a Mastermind Saviour! The Superb Talented Handsome Hunk Ashish Chowdhry as a debutante is excellent in The Role of a Young Brilliant Scientist Rahul Gupta. Previously Ashish has acted in many music videos like Asha Bhonsle's ''Na Marte Hum'' and also in several T.V serials & Did a Full Featured Tele Film Humko Ishq Ne Maara at The Tender Age Of 18 !,Ashish Chowdhry is Mindblowingly Goodlooking and His Voice & Dialogue Delivery is Marvellously Beyond Compare,Even a Dead Dialogue Becomes Alive when it has been Delivered by Ashish,He has The Victorious Star Potentials & can be successful Rulling Bollyw King in The Future!

2.Rachit(Ajay Devgan):Rachit,is a strong person who commits crime in a way,He takes drugs & he is very sad because he misses Sapna,his love!This was the person who was with terrorism but now,along with Rahul Gupta & Akram Sheikh will fight against terrorism!The city is under threat and Rachit will get the city out of this threat.Ajay Devgan As Rachit Looks Yuck In Beard But is good in Action scenes

3.Akram Sheikh(Suniel Shetty):Akram Sheikh is a C.B.I officer,who LOVES his country and wants it to get out of trouble.Ali,Abbas and Laila have smuggled in a deadly virus which can kill many people living in Mumbai but he will fight against the evil.Sunil Shetty as Akram Looks Quite Artificial & Awkward

4.Ali,Abbas and Laila(Arbaaz Khan,Sanjay Kapoor and Isha Koppikar):Ali,Abbas and Laila are the three main villains of the film and because of them the city is under threat!They've smuggled in a deadly virus which can endanger the lives of people living in Mumbai.They are the evil and the good(Rahul Gupta,Akram Sheikh and Rachit)will fight against this evil! Arbaaz Khan & Sanjay Kapoor R Average & Ishaa Koppikar is Sizzling In a negative role

5.Sheetal(Riya Sen):Sheetal is madly in love with Rahul and whenever she is alone at home she calls Rahul! Riya Sen as usual is unimpressive! But she isn't so irritating because her role is very brief!

6.Sapna(Neha Dhupia):Sapna,is Rachit's love interest,who now is not with Rachit due to circumstances.She is a simple girl who knows what LOVE really means!Neha Dhupia is OK but not much can be said about her performance because her voice was dubbed.


Rahul Gupta Is a Master Mind Handsome Brilliant Young Scientist Who Wants To Make an Anti Virus/Anti Dode to Prevent The Deadly Virus Of Abbas Ali & Laila,Akram Sheikh is a person who loves his country and hires a criminal Rachit to help him fight against terrorism!Ali,Abbas and Laila are the ones who have got Mumbai under threat!They have smuggled in a deadly virus,which can kill many Mumbaikres!Not only,Mumbai but India is also under a great threat.This is all for the lust of power! What Will The Young Scientist Rahul Gupta, Akram Sheikh and Rachit do???


Harry Baweja's direction is amazing.He has handled every scene with sensitivity and has extracted good performances from everyone!He has made a very modern film for Bollywood and his extra effort can be seen throughout the film!Special effects are simply the best!I have never seen such amazing special effects in any Bollywood film ever.This film needs to be seen on the big screen.Screenplay is gripping where as the editing is loose,because the film drags at places.Nadeem-Shravan's music is nice and ''Woh Ladki Bahut Yaad Aati Hai'' "Title Track ''Dil Chura Liya'' are nice songs but "Yaar Pyaar Hogaya" is The Best Of All Cuz The Dazzling Hottest Handsome Ashish Chowdhry Is Sensationaly Wow in The Song

Final Verdict:

Qayamat is a well-made film and is worth a watch! Good Matrix Style Action Thriller With Good Songs Thrills Special Effects and Different sets like an Underground Tunnel,a jail and a Scientific Laboratory!, But The Genuine Soul Of The Movie is The Excellent Performance By The Highly Talented Handsome Supremo Ashish Chowdhry, Ashish is The Best & is Cut Above The Rest !
