Storyline

Sangli-based Shiva Kumar re-locates to Mumbai to live with his brother, Daksh; Bhabi, Manasi; and their son. He gets recruited as a Sub-Inspector with Mumbai Police, and Manasi hopes that he will accept Haftas like other police officers so that they can improve their standard of living. Instead, Shiva befriends a rebel journalist from Daily News Analysis (D.N.A.), Sandhya Joshi, who is determined to expose the nexus between the police and the underworld; and incurs the wrath of his superiors as well as a former underworld don, Bappu, who is now an influential politician. After apprehending a vicious killer, Kutney, from Malaysia, Shiva is summoned by Home Minister, Manohar Shirke - and it is this meeting that will alter Shiva's life forever.

A RGV Film!!! Who Said That?
29 October 2010 | by (Pakistan) – See all my reviews

Is it from the same man who gave us masterpieces like Satya, Company and of course the original Shiva? And on top of all that, he has also made Rangeela and Sarkar. Quite a resume, I should say.

But what has he done now? A remake of his own film (I have seen the original and wasn't able to find any remarkable similarities) which is so bad that you almost refuse to believe the credits which end on Ram Gopal Verma's name as being the producer and the director. I had always thought that a good producer and director are the best criteria to help you choose when you are randomly browsing the shelves with an intent to buy something good. Actors can fail, Actresses can fail, writers can fail, music-composers can fail, but good directors almost always deliver.

There! I said it. I answered my own querry that I hadn't yet raised. Almost. Even then, how bad can bad be when a good helmer is on controls, one might ask. My answer will be: you never know with these guys. Steven Spielberg can give you a Hook; Oliver Stone can helm an Alexander; Coppola can open a Cotton Club;Yash Chopra can churn out a Veer-Zara; Gulzar can rehash a Ho To Tu; and Ram Gopal Verma can make a remake to make you want to tear your hair out.

I have bracketed him in such an august gathering because I believe that he is just as capable and as true to his craft as all these greats. The RGV that I know does not make compromises, does not hesitate from experimenting, does not fear to hold very risky projects in his hands, and has a unique vision all his own. All qualities of the Great.

But this time he has gone off the track with such force that I think I must pay him a visit and feel him all over, just to see that if all his bones are in one piece.

There is nothing good one can say about this movie. Not even one. I am not much well-versed in the technical aspects of a film but as far as the 'artistic' elements go, this is a sure-fire dud. No performance to speak about, no music to speak about, no action-pieces to speak about (positively, I mean), in short, no nothing' to speak about.

I wonder what was this dude thinking while making this film. Probably, about that other remake he is doing. That is not one of his own oldies. And that too is a classic of its genre. A true classic if India has to offer one in this genre, actually. Let's just hope, he keeps his wits about while doing this other job. As far as this remake goes, let's just forget it and never speak of it and every time when somebody tries to stick a thorn in our sides by saying that that was a RGV film too, to counter it vehemently with: A RGV Film!!! Who Said That?
