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.

This is called a Movie
17 May 2008 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I think if you go with a "it's a copy" frame of mind, there is no way you can be fair to the movie. To me, I haven't seen a movie as strong as this one in a while. Last one was Taare Zamee Par and may be Maine Gandhi ko Nahi Maara.

The coldness on KK (Brigadier's) face was outstanding. His dialog about "how a cup of coffee is made" and "pigs sweat men perspire" showed how great of an actor he is and how underestimated. I liked Minissha for whatever role she was given. I have been gaga over her since "Yahaan", which was another great movie.

It is always a treat to watch such movies out of all the junk that bollywood throws out. I agree that the starting of the movie could have done without the Bar song, but by the time the movie ends, you're left wondering. For me, Kay Kay stole the show, where as Rahul Bose again proves his caliber that he showed in "Mr and Mrs Iyer". Go watch this!
