When Bala is fighting his way through the horde of guards inside the prison building, right before he gets stabbed in the back, the guy who stabs him steps on a baseball bat. The bat is completely hollow (so when it was used in filming it didn't actually injure anyone), but when the stabber steps on it, the bat is crushed and actually bends in the middle. See more »
2006 Annual Follywood Crap-o-Remakes Starts With Huge Thunderous FART
OK, first off, this movie should be renamed to MURDA (dead).
Seeing this film's previews earlier on, and with Sanjay Dutt's comments that he plays a very complicated character, it had everything going for it until it suddenly became clear that its a ripoff of a recent Korean movie, Oldboy. Boy, are they fast, and getting faster each year.
The main character has been imprisoned without explanation for 15 years and when he's released, they are out to get him again. He bumps into a female cabbie of Indian origin (how convenient!). But before we get too far ahead why the hell is this chappy living in Bangcock in the first place? Can't he get whatever it is he wants in India?? Such seemingly simple but completely *necessary* questions keep popping up repeatedly, the profound answers to which somehow keep eluding us. Confusing script yeah?!? Thats happens when you have no insights into the original.
Well, someone got a bloody bit of explaining to do is what it is. You can't expect much by way of direction knowing it is a remake after all. No flashes of inspired brilliance here, just plain old photocopying. In the overacting dept, Sanjay seems playing to the gallery. The sidekicks had no great parts to play. Fight sequences are OK and only 2-3 scenes are worth the money.
All in all, an avoidable fare and can be awaited on cable/DVD.
