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, ...

Not bad at all
30 August 2008 | by (India) – See all my reviews

When Chamku was released,there were no high expectations from it but those who spent the money to watch the movie, I can safely say that they must have had their money worth it.Chamku is a good movie and the performances by the actors were also pretty good.To be honest, the storyline has nothing extra special except for being well crafted and drafted but the direction,cinematography and screenplay were excellent and very well done.The director has done a very good job and has chosen the right actors for each character role. Bobby Deol is back(I won't say with a bang but with a decent performance after a long time)and with Irfan has worked out a thumbs up combination.The movie was intense and has been well dramatized by the actors' performances.Irfan as usual does justice to the role with exceptions on some occasions when it comes to the delivery of his lines in English and the accent he uses. The editing was also good and there were less of the unnecessary song sequences and character inclusions that would have added nothing to the plot.The plot was a well conceived one and the USP of the movie was its uninterrupted run of the plot and the dramatization.The usage of background music was good but on occasions some scores sounded familiar and heard of.

I won't criticize the movie much but if at all I have to speak something negative about it then it would be a couple of things.First, Priyanka Chopra again has nothing much to do other than being Bobby's love interest and being the cause of him drifting away from his job of assassination.Priyanka Chopra again didn't have much of the opportunity to showcase her acting skills and instead has been used as a fill up for the gap of the important character role that she plays.Honestly any decent actress could have done justice to that role as it really does'nt require a Priyanka Chopra or any other glam quotient.It doesn't really cause any harm to the movie though because she plays her part well but as I said it's not a very significant performance role from her in the movie.The second negative aspect is that the movie has shades of Badal and Bichchoo in its plot and the role of Bobby also signifies that and indicates towards it.The movie has the same elements of the hero avenging his father's death but with a different storyline but nevertheless the direction of the film and other fore said factors cover everything up pretty well. All in all, a very well made movie with no nonsensical approach and no extra uninteresting additions and the time limit was also kept fine keeping in pace with the plot and approaching climax.Not bad at all!
