Storyline

Unkempt and unruly-looking, Balajit Roy (Sanjay Dutt), gets released from a room in Bangkok that he had been forcibly confined to. Reflecting on his life as a Software Engineer; his first wedding anniversary with his expectant wife, Nisha (Celina Jaitley); his friend, Joy Fernandes (Mahesh Manjrekar); and his house by the jetty. It is here that an unknown male shoots a tranquilizing dart, and he wakes up in a dark cell, is fed fried Won Tons twice a day, and has a TV set for company. He watches the world news - Nisha's murder with him as the prime suspect; the events of September 11, 2001; the devastating 2004 Tsunami; and the fall of Saddam Hussein. Valium gas is injected into the cell, he is rendered unconscious, taken out, groomed, while the cell is cleaned. This becomes a routine in his life, and then after 14 years he is let out. With the help of a savvy, street-smart taxi-driver, Jenny Singh Sarji, and Joy, he sets out to locate the person(s) responsible for his confinement, and... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

2006 Annual Follywood Crap-o-Remakes Starts With Huge Thunderous FART
21 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

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.
