Storyline

Mumbai-based middle-classed Jhanvi, who lives with her widowed mother and younger brother, has three suitors. The first is much older and considerably overweight - Sonu Gates. The second is Police Inspector Talpade, who is already married to Nandini, but lusts after Jhanvi so much so that he creates circumstances that will force her to marry him. The third is a male named Radhey - who often comes to her rescue - but breaks her heart when she finds out who is really is - a cold-blooded killer who works for a gangster named Ghanibhai. The later is a ruthless gangster who challenges Police Commissioner Ashraf Taufeeq Khan with impunity, and even abducts his daughter to ensure his personal safety.

'Wanted' is really wanted.. a must watch
18 September 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Most of you must be knowing that 'Wanted' is remake of Telugu 'Pokiri'. The Telugu version was itself a great.. so any remake will be delighting. And Prabhu Deva has not made much wear and tear to its original version. That makes 'Wanted' a full entertaining movie. After watching the first show, I expect most will like it and hopefully Salman's wanted will turn out to be a super-hit. Acting was awesome. Most of the crew have performed their role to perfection. Ayesha Takia was at her best. Prakash Raj has proved again and again that he can play any role flawless. Better can be expected from a star like Salman Khan. The bar of expectation risen high enough by a near perfect Mahesh Babu in the original 'Pokiri'. Salman has not done bad anyway. Songs do dishearten. Last but not the least the plot is superb that makes this movie so wonderful. My verdict: a must watch.
