Excellent Movie!!

This is an excellent copy of Collateral. Actually, much better than the American version. I almost did not see the movie, but once I started watching I could not turn it off. The acting and the dialogues are excellent. Emraan does a great job as a taxi driver and Irfan is again the bad guy playing the role of the hired killer. Nisha Kothari does a decent job of providing glamour in the movie. The location, Dubai is also a good location for the movie. The negatives are the acting of the police team. The three main police actors seems to be hired out of a low-budget movie. This is a good thriller which is hard to find in Indian movie market.
