Storyline

Shortly after getting promoted as Regional Manager of Max Finance, Parag Dixit gets arrested in Bandra for Firing at Police, and Possession of Narcotics. His associate, Keshav, is grievously injured, and is hospitalized in a coma-like condition. Parag's widowed mother, Alka, and Air Hostess girlfriend, Manasi Pandit, retain Advocate Harish Bhatiya to represent him at a preliminary bail hearing, but the Judge denies bail. Housed in an overcrowded barrack, with barely room to move, Parag meets with a variety of people - both convicted and awaiting trial - including Abdul Ghani, Kabir Malik, Galib Suratwala, Nawab, Bababhai, etc. Parag again appears in Court e after a charge-sheet is filed, but again, due to the seriousness of the offenses, fear of tampering with evidence and witnesses, he is denied bail.

A yawny tale
14 September 2015 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

Well, this is typical Madhur Bhandarkar stuff, which pretends to be of superior quality but in actual fact is just another junk. A predictable film which aims to explore the world of life in a jail through the story of a good guy wrongly accused and jailed for no fault of his own, and well it cannot get more boring thanks to the poorly written script, and the stereotypical characters. Bhandarkar likes to explore, and devote each new project to another field, but his research for this film is marred by his own, erroneous and highly immature interpretation of what he had probably studied. The proceedings just do not ring true, and not once do you get reminded of those old Hindi films which portray the judicial system as totally corrupt. Neil Nitin Mukesh is just not convincing enough. He was a nice new find back in Johnny Gaddaar and the only film in which he managed to leave a mark for me was Saat Khoon Maaf. Otherwise in this film he's left struggling with what seems to be a great lack of acting chops. He often looks wooden, awkward, even though he does have his moments which sadly are few and far between. Mugdha Godse is just there in the role of a girl who is frankly too good to be true. Manoj Bajpai is wasted as the self-righteous prisoner. Jail just doesn't word, better avoided.
