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 »

Escaping the mob is harder than it seems.
26 April 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Bollywood crowds were not pleased with this film. For good reason of course. This movie breaks out of the regular tradition of song, dance and predictable drama and creates a movie rarely seen in the Bollywood industry. The direction was amazing. The movie was inspired by many action movies from the past but what makes it different is its setting and culture. Very few Hindi movies have been made with such openness and innovation. If you want a new twist on a classic story watch Karam. It will blends elements of Bollywood and American action. Its an entertaining watch if nothing else. Some scenes are a little graphic but they are not gratuitous. Also, the casting was excellent.
