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'.

2 July 2009 | by (Gujarat, India) – See all my reviews

Nothing new at all. It was too slow to be a thriller and too violent to be a drama. In the end it was a dull tale of a trained killer, with the romance added in for the pleasure of the average Bollywood audience. The whole romance angle was totally unnecessary. Also, musical numbers were not called for given the tone for rest of the movie. Action sequences were pretty average. None of the performances were particularly impressive. On the whole this is one movie that can be avoided without missing out on anything at all. Poor story, screenplay, and direction ruins the movie, with the cast and budget they should have surely made something better than this.
