Storyline

How far can greed take a man? Can the 'greens' ever fight the money and might of the builders lobby? Can nature ever win over the bulldozer? These are the riveting issues raised by Shikhar. Pitted against each other in this battle of man vs nature are two different but equally powerful protagonists. Gaurav Gupta (aka GG) is a man who started with nothing and now believes that only money can fuel his ambitions. While Guruji, to the manor born, believes that wealth means nothing if not used for society. Caught in the tussle between the two is the unworldly Jaidev Vardhan, who while respecting his father's philosophy, falls hook, line and sinker for GG's gilt-edged dreams. While Guruji hopes that Jai will return to his roots, GG uses the glamorous Natasha to bewitch Jai and the unscrupulous politician Amrit Patil, to exploit the tribal into selling their lands. Madhavi watches the man she loves being carried away in to a world of wine, women and wealth. If Shikhar is the Pinnacle of good... Written by SoMeONE

this time its Shahid, not Aamir
22 October 2007 | by (Bangalore) – See all my reviews

Yes, it's another product of genius John Matthew Mathan. But we should not even compare with his earlier record Sarfarosh. I read in an issue of Filmfare magazine that before his venture to Shikhar he was supposed to make another movie with Aamir Khan based on the lifestyles in metropolitan cities. But due to uncertain circumstances it was canceled and instead concentrated on this. Shikhar refers on some social, political and humanitarian issues concerning with today's world of corruption. It narrates the background reasons of intention created by many personalities in support of bribery.

I enjoyed the movie with the impressive performance by Shahid Kapoor (the best role he has chosen till date). Although the movie has strong screenplay and storyline, but its moving motion goes below today's mainstream cinema. Ajay's role and screen presence is too irritating with his boring gestures and indications. Perhaps he is one of the many reasons for the fall out of the movie at the box office. We couldn't expect such parts from an award winning actor. Taking leading role in hands, Amrita did her natural presentation with support from Farha. But sexy Bipasha was just a trash in the movie which was totally unnecessary. She must have been given just a guest appearance role as John Abraham is in the movie for a while. Back to Shahid, he may not be as gorgeous as Aamir but he has the potentialities to be someday. And I realized that just simply after watching this movie. Imagining on this might John have selected him for this naturally cool and bold role.
