Storyline

When Anita Rajan, CEO of Sheppard power plant, an international Company, brings a power plant proposal to set up in rural Maharashtra before the Nagres, insightful Shankar is quick to realize the benefits the power plant can bring to the people. After convincing Sarkar who is against it for various reasons, Shankar undertakes a journey along with Anita to the villages of Maharashtra to mobilize support from the masses. However, things are not what they seem to be and Shankar's dream project gradually becomes a political minefield. It is in this backdrop the evil forces mightier than ever, mushroom and gang up to bring down the regime of Sarkar and obliterate Shankar's name from the political horizon.

A Good Sequel/
13 June 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

To be honest after Ram Gopal Verma's "Aag," I was a bit hesitant to watch this movie even though it had the top actors and also because, normally, I am not very fond of sequels as I believe that they ruin the original.

An overseas based company wants to build a power plant in Maharashtra but the owners, Mike Rajsn and his daughter, Anita Rajan face a lot of opposition and the only man who can help them is Subash Nagre and his son, Shankar. Shankar and his father believe that the plant should be built in Maharashtra and persuade people of the villages where the plant is to be built to accept the plans. But events turn ugly, when one day Avantika, Subash's daughter – in – law is killed when her car is detonated by a bomb.

The movie stars Amitabh Bachchan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Abhishek Bachchan, Supriya Pathak, Victor Bannerjee and Tanisha.

Not as good as the original, Ram Gopal Verma, still has managed to put in some ghosts of Mario Puzo's "The Godfather" more so with reference to bombing of the vehicle and to some extent, he has put in some ghosts of "Sarkar" as well. What was a bit disappointing was that sound track, "Govinda" has not lived to the expectations as it did in the previous one and this is where, perhaps, the music director, Amar Mohile, could have done more to revive the original version.

Be warned there is violence but never the less a good movie to watch with elder children and adult family members.
