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.

Strong Story, Failed Narrative. ♦ 61%
29 August 2013 | by (the Entertainment Capital of India) – See all my reviews

"A Few Good Men" is remade with thespians of Indian cinema. It lacks the cinema potential as the editing, cinematography & narration doesn't quite gel with the serious theme of the movie.

Talking about discrimination & court-martial, it takes its viewers to a glory trip inside the army court proceedings and everything related to it. This is very good, unless the makers try to Bollywood-ize the script with jolly songs, romance & unnecessary relationship stories.

Rahul Bose manages to bring humor in to his protagonist character, whereas Kay Kay Menon is more than a guest appearance. Jaaved Jaffrey & Amrita Rao are good, but I am upset with Minnisha Lamba. Supporting cast is fine. As the story gradually makes its point, the climax deviates from the original narrative and culminates into a hasty conclusion. Although, the implication is very easy to interpret, it gives the movie a sinking impression. 6.1/10.

BOTTOM LINE: Recommended due to its patriotic music & righteousness theme!

Can be watched with a typical Indian family? YES

Profanity: Mild | Nudity/Sex: No | Smoking/Alcohol: Strong | Drugs: No | Violence/Gore: Mild; Implied
