Storyline

After witnessing his entire Bhagpur, Bihar-based family being killed by Thakur Mahendra Pratap Singh, a traumatized and injured Chandrama Singh wakes up in a hospital, is adopted by Naxal leader, Baba, and grows up to become one himself. Years later, after killing Ramji Mahto, the police kill Baba, while Chandrama is hospitalized after being shot. When he recovers, he is told by Officer Vijayraj Kapur that he must agree to become a police-assassin or be killed in an 'encounter'. Chandrama agrees and undergoes vigorous training in all combat aspects along with 29 others for over 3 years. He then re-locates to Mumbai, and lives with another assassin, Arjun Tiwari, his mother, and falls in love with a school-teacher, Shubhi, while carrying out a wide variety of assassinations against 'anti-nationals'. Chandrama's only goal is to locate and kill Mahendra while Arjun wants to retire and re-locate to his home-town in Sultanpur. With increasing pressure of marriage from a pregnant Shubhi, ...

Could have been better
19 December 2008 | by (Middle Earth) – See all my reviews

There was no hype about this movie and in all fairness is not too bad. But yes, it definitely could have been a lot better. The plot had lots of scope and potential.

Broadly the story can be divided into three chapters– the childhood, naxalite and the assassination agent. IMO – either it should have been a linear progression as opposed to jumping back-and-forth in the narrative or simply trimmed it into two chapters. BTW – the childhood has shades of Agneepath.

Bobby Deol:: Simply put - he attempts Jr. B of Sarkar. The restrained performance doesn't suit him – yet. It was clearly evident that it was forced down his throat. Halo-effect perhaps? Priyanka:: Very average performance. The role was similar to Dimple Kapadia's in Arjun.

Ritiesh Deshmukh: A very-very special appearance kind of role.

Danny:: Should have given more screen time to develop his character and the basis of his ideology. In terms of performance, there wasn't anything special to mention about.

Irfan Khan:: Very impressive considering the fact that the role demanded various shades to it and effectively strikes a fine balance between his duty and personal agenda.

Songs were unwarranted.
