Watch it for Amitabh Bachchan's superb performance!
6 April 2012 | by (Bahrain) – See all my reviews

Ek Ajnabee directed by Apoorva Lakhia and a remake to the Hollywood movie,Man on Fire is an average movie.

But what makes this average movie turn to be awesome is the performance of Amitabh Bachchan! Amitabh Bachchan,after a long time,returns back to screen as the young angry man.It is a pleasure to see him in roles like this! Story:- Bangkok based Ravi Rathore(Vikram Chatwal) lives a wealthy lifestyle and runs a business which he took over when he married Nikasha(Perizaad Zorabiam). They now have a school-going daughter, Anamika(Ruchi Vaidya), and a failing business. In order to make up for his business losses, Ravi hires some men to kidnap Anamika, hold her for ransom, demand two million American dollars, and then release her. Ravi hires an elderly, alcoholic bodyguard named Suryaveer Singh(Amitabh Bachchan), who dislikes crowds and children. He does warm up to the bubbly Anamika and both share a bond - which is broken when Anamika is kidnapped from her piano school, Surya is severely wounded, but does manage to shoot three abductors. He recovers in hospital, and is quite upset that he has failed in his job. Meanwhile Ravi is quite relieved that the kidnapping has gone according to plan, he does notify the police, and they set up a trap to apprehend the kidnappers. But then something goes terribly wrong, the police end up shooting and killing the men, who in turn kill Anamika. Surya, who is on his way home to India, cancels his trip, returns and starts asking questions, not knowing that he is going to unearth a web of deceit, lies and deception, which may only end when he uncovers the entire truth or die's trying.

The direction is average.

The story is copied from Man on Fire.So nothing to talk about it.

The music is average.

The cinematography is good.

The action sequences are very good.

The dialogs especially the ones delivered by Amitabh Bachchan are excellent! Performances:- Amitabh Bachchan steals the show!He is superb.Arjun Rampal is excellent.Vikram Chatwal and Perizaad Zorabian are okay.Ruchi Vaidya is good.Sanjay Dutt,Abhishek Bachchan and Lara Dutta in brief roles are okay.

I am giving Ek Ajnabee a six on ten.The six marks are only for Amitabh Bachchan's superb performances!
