Mumbai-based Indian Army Officer, Amaan Malik, who lives with his wife, Divya, and daughter, Binty, decides to quit, and seek employment elsewhere. He is then approached by a plainclothes police officer, Ahmad Hussain, and asked to infiltrate a gang of terrorists and bring their ringleader, Sultan, to justice. He initially refuses to do so, but subsequently changes his mind after Divya and Binty are killed in an explosion at a Ganpati Mandir. He is given a new identity, Ahmaan Yusuf Ali, and sent to prison on trumped-up charges where he must seek contact with other terrorists. He dramatically manages to do so, acquires a reputation, and gets to meet RD and his attractive sister, Iya. After considerable violence, including the well-planned execution of Goonga, he gains their confidence and plans are underfoot to finally introduce him to Sultan.

not so good
22 July 2008 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Movie is about a covert operation to kill sultan who happens to be one of the terrorist group leaders. ( We don't talk about the message of the movie as RGV says that he is not interested in any messages through films )

Not much research went into knowing how a covert operation is done ? Secret. Director should have referred to "Drohkaal". Director concentrated on clearly presenting how the hero is placed in villains gang.

It looked pale when the hero keeps informing to police officer on phone all the time. Is thats how mafia deals with the people inside the group??? Secret.

Background music was scary. Varma " have u seen the movie in mute?? "??? Secret. What i liked most in the movie is acting. Every did their best. Goonga's wife,RD and RD's sister are the top performers in this movie. That saves the grace of the movie and can be watched for it.
