similar to "Man on Fire"
5 July 2008 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This strange Bollywood copy of the film "Man on Fire" was neither better nor worse than the original. It was just very much the same, and I didn't like the original film much. Luckily, this film wasn't as long as a normal Bollywood film, although like "Man on Fire" I found it a touch long, and it wasn't packed with songs. The setting was changed to Thailand, but otherwise the story and even the lines were very much the same - depressed ex-soldier goes to be a bodyguard for the child of a rich family. They form a special bond, and then she gets kidnapped. The bodyguard goes on a brutal revenge rampage. I thought the actors were okay and the girl did quite a good job. Unfortunately the director decided to imitate a lot of the strange cinematography and jerky edits of the original film. In my opinion it didn't work originally and it still didn't work in this version. There seemed to be less of the violent revenge in this, which was good, although there also seemed to be less of an insight into the business of kidnapping, or into corruption. It was just very much the same as "Man on Fire" and not even significantly Bollywoodised, just with different actors and half spoken in Hindi. (Incidentally, I really admire the actors' ability to switch languages the whole time.) It doesn't matter which version you watch because the story is silly and the camera work will probably make you seasick.
