Well-made drama a departure from usual Bollywood melodrama
16 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film by director Kabeer Kaushik, deals with organized crime in the northern Indian state of Uttar Pradesh (UP). But it tackles this from a decidedly different perspective -- that of law enforcement.

The story involves an honest-to-death police officer who convinces his seniors that the only way to combat the mafia on their turf was to step outside the box, so to speak. The film depicts LE in a positive light, and successful in its strategy, despite usual political opposition. And in yet another departure, a good looking guy is cast as villain. He is effective except one doesn't quite feel like throttling him for all his misdeeds. Plot unfolds in a no-nonsense format and while the climax is not all that unexpected, its again different from convention.

Some of the positive points include a low-key soundtrack as compared to the Blare Fare of typical Bollyfilms. Good acting on the part of Pankaj Kapur and Arshad Warsi in a leading role. The pace could have tightened up a bit had there been fewer scenes involving the mother and the wife-to-be. Only a couple of songs serve as background to the score.
