Underrated piece of work
22 December 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Arshad Warsi a name who is synonymous with comedies But in this film he proved he can excel in serious roles as well

The film is a cop drama maybe a story not too new but brilliantly handled Sadly such films don't' catch the fancy of our janta who call such films dry, depressing.etc and praise craps like OSO.etc and then the same people say Bollywood is crap

Back to the film The film is set in 1997 when Mobile technology was a new term and mobiles were used by few people The film tells a normal story of a cop vs underworld but it's treated brilliantly

The cop isn't a 6 feet hero or a typical Hindi film hero He is a simple man, clad in Formals The only distraction in the film is the love story but if they make a film without songs, romance people will even more criticise it

The clash with the underworld, the use of Pankaj Kapur as a communication expert and also the fights using pistols are used brilliantly and give the film a realistic feel

Direction is awesome Music is okay Camera-work is perfect

Arshad Warsi known for his comic roles does an about turn and dons a serious cop role perfectly, this is an understated performance from him I wish he does such roles now wherein his comic streak is become boring Mahima is wasted Sushant Singh is good in his stereotypical role Pankaj Kapur excels Rajendra Gupta and others are adequate Suhasini Mulay is good
