Born lucky, Karim Moussa takes to exploiting it instead of focusing on studies. Now a wealthy gambler, he decides to recruit about a dozen lucky people to participate in a deadly game of survival. His agent, Lakhaan Tamaang, recruits Ram Mehra - whose father killed himself after losing 25 Crores - and is about to lose everything he and his mom own, and may end up being arrested for robbing an ATM machine; Major Jabbar Pratap Singh - who needs money for his wife's treatment; a camel jockey, Shortcut, sold by her parents for Rs.15000/-, who wants to make it big in life; a returning player, Ayesha, who had already participated, and is back for more; a psychotic serial killer, Raghav Raghuvaran, who miraculously escaped the death penalty. All of the above, including others from different countries, must compete, kill each other, with the survivor netting 20 Crores Rupees in just 20 days. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Russian Roulette With The Luckless Souls
29 July 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

It was something that I had not expected at all and therefore was rather taken back by its contents. A Mafia kingpin is obsessed by gambling not in the usual way but with peoples lives and he finds those who are in need of money and puts them through tasks, which can result to be very costly if they decide to leave or aren't able to complete.

Starring Mithun Chakraborthy, Sanjay Dutt, Imran Kham, Ravi Kishan, Danny Denzongpa and Chitrashi Rawat. Shruti Hasan, daughter of Kamal Haasan, is introduced in this, while Rati Agnihotri makes a special appearance. This is directed by Soham Shah and Salim – Suleiman provide the music score.

This is Imran Khan's third film in which he is in action for the second time, the previous being "Kidnap" and he is good in some scenes but unfortunately, his character of a person who needs money, goes from convincing to unconvincing as the movie progresses. Shruti Haasan, making her debut in this, has shown signs of potential talent and also has the looks as well and given some time, she will accelerate in this career. But the two actors who were conspicuous throughout are Sanjay Dutt and Danny Denzongpa but the same cannot be said for Mithun Chakraborthy as his was rather on the weak side and felt that much more could have been done to his character but was not.

Director and writer Soham Shah has tried to introduce a new type concept with its theme of gambling and having the characters play Russian roulette and has added on some stunts, which are not anything new but do look spectacular and nothing else. But somehow, the film does manage to keep the audience stick to their seat and yet it fails to click as no one who is in the right frame of mind would play Russian roulette with their lives even if they need money.

This film just does not appeal or click but is just about watchable but unfortunately is a flop.
