A Good Thriller Mixed With Romance.
3 September 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I was totally amazed with the contents of this movie from Dharmendra, even though I had did have some inkling from the promos.

Chamku, whose real name is Chandrama, is taken care of by Baba, after he is forced to watch his parents being murdered. Baba, however, trains him to become a sharp shooter and is one day killed by the Police in an encounter and Chamku joins a Government agency and gets involved in covert operations where those that are felt as threat to the system are assassinated. Then his life takes a twist when he meets Shubhi and falls in love with her.

Produced by Dharmendra, the movie stars Bobby Deol, Priyanka Chopra, Danny Denzongpa, Irfan Khan, Arshad Warsi, Riteish Deshmukh, Rajpal Yadav and is Directed by Kabeer Kaushik while Monty Sharma provides the music score.

Don't be misled that since the star cast includes Arshad Warsi, Riteish Deshmukh and Rajpal Yadav, that this is some sort of comedy because there isn't and they have proved that they are able to do some serious roles as well. Once again, Irfan Khan has shown his talents and has done an excellent job of a character relating to Government agency and who can be ruthless. But one actor who has gone beyond all my expectations is Bobby Deol. He has played his role very well and one which can be believable and it has suited him. Lastly for Priyanka Chopra, who has also done well, this can be said, was better then her last movie, "Love 2050," and was one of her best films since "Don."

Conclusion: This has delivered some fresh air into this sort of genre - worth watching.
