Storyline

Indian Army lawyer, Major Siddhant Chaudhary, has not only to deal with his father's death, but must also defend Captain Javed Khan. The later, charged with killing a decorated Major Virendra Singh Rathore, under various statutes of Indian laws & the Army Act, refuses to defend himself, admits to this killing, and awaits a guilt finding via a Court Martial. Siddhant decides to delve deeper, much to the chagrin of his prosecutor-friend, Major Akash Kapoor, not realizing that he will incur the wrath of his superiors; his work will come under sharp scrutiny; the journalist, Kaavya Shastri, assisting him will be arrested; and he may end up being transferred to violent and isolated areas in Assam and Bihar.

Ver. A Few Good Men of Bollywood
10 December 2008 | by (Middle Earth) – See all my reviews

One of the few movies made on the subject on Indian army and perhaps a reality check. The subject is sensitive and handled quite well. Even if it's a copy of "A Few Good Men", the premise is fitted aptly.

Rahul Bose characterisation in an attempt to be "kewl" is over-cool (read that as uncool!). Why was it reminding me of Raj of DDLJ?

Minisha Lamba bubbly character is nothing new, repetitive!

Seema Biswas delivers as usual a good performance.

Amrita Rao:: Resilient performance – a revelation indeed.

Deepak Dobriyal does a fantastic job with his silence in the role of Javed Khan

Javed Jaafery: Yet again, it shows that Jaaved Jaaffery is under-utilised by the industry.

Kay Kay Menon:: The way he rules the roost at the border is akin to Marlon Brando in Apocalypse Now. The characters motivation is partially drawn from Sunil Shetty in Main Hoon Na. Playing devils advocate, why should the ideology be a resultant of a personal tragedy? Simply it could have been a natural transformation owing to personal beliefs and gradually cemented by the circumstances. In terms of performance it should be written in bold - Kay Kay reigns supreme with his towering performance, especially in the climax which is bound to leave you spellbound. Lots spoken, but if you have to watch Shaurya, make sure the reason is Kay Kay.

Samar Khan shows a lot of promise. He portrays the borders, army lifestyle, attitude of army men quite well. Hope this movie gives him the recognition he deserves.

Give it a go!!
