A Western in contemporary Mumbai...
4 May 2007 | by (near Philadelphia) – See all my reviews

"James" is like an old Western: a righteous man of unknown origins arrives in town, finds much iniquity there, and single-handedly goes mano-a-mano against the hoodlums that terrorize the locals. Mohit Ahlawat is the strong silent type (that in another era we encountered in Clint Eastwood, Gary Cooper, etc.) and he's up against the corrupt Bombay underworld, including the police. The gangster honchos are played well by Sheereveer and Zakir Hussain, both of whom ooze evil.

I thought there was a hint of the Thai action movie "Ong Bak" as well---especially in the leitmotif for James when he is roused to action. The clarion call sounded familiar...

True to convention for action heroes, James insists on fighting totally unarmed, even when going against dozens of gangsters with guns and against pit bulls! He is a good fighter, though! I enjoyed the movie despite the implausibility of some of the fight sequences. And I think Nisha Kothari looks sexier with some clothes on... I look forward to seeing her in the new upcoming edition of Sholay.
