Storyline

John is an assassin working for a mobster named Captain. After killing an entire family, he is hit by the consequences of his actions and decides to quit his job. He starts life anew with his pregnant wife Shalini. Meanwhile, John's boss, Captain, is facing a threat from a rival don, Yunus. After being attacked, Captain decides to teach the city a lesson by killing the city's top industrialist, top film producer, the cop backing Yunus and Yunus himself; so that everyone else falls in line and no one dreams of becoming another Yunus. He decides that John must carry out this plan of his. To achieve this, he takes Shalini hostage. John is given 36 hours to kill the five targets on the hit list. Things get worse when the city's toughest cop Wagh traces John. John is pressed for time and the body count is growing. Written by gavin@sunny_deol2009@yahoo.com

Trivia

The director Sanjay F. Gupta originally intended to make the whole film in black and white and then sepia tint it to match the dark and sinister mood of the film. Eventually only portions of the film were shot in this format. See more »

Goofs

Piece of crap!!!!!
19 August 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Still i am giving the film 4 out of 10 just because of the music and some what mediocre-ly cinematography! This might be a copy of The Mexican which i have seen and loved, but some how the director has managed to make the film look very illogical! Pointless melodramatic moments! Stupid wife just keeps talking about the flooring in their new house!!

Movie is crap because of the makers! If this is an first time attempt which i think it is then it is a very good attempt. The narrative is quite unique for Indian film industry standards! This itself demands respect for the makers!

John acted well!!! So did Priyanka!!!!

But the music and the songs are original and just plain heavenly!!!!
