A routine gangster movie with some nice acting
4 December 2010 | by (India) – See all my reviews

The movie started with a promise with some eye-catching act by younger versions of Yakub and Vijay (Played by Faruk and Sharam) but after few reals it changed the track to a routine Gangster movie. Second half of the movie mostly I feel, wasted in bloodshed and gun fights. Some of the "May be" strong characters were not sketched strongly enough and left the movie loosely made. Character of the Teacher by Atul Kulkarni could not make a mark because of too late entry and lesser part to play. Naseer Sahab too had nothing much to do in the movie. Anjana Sukhani was a showpiece in the movie like her previous movies. Movie would have the same impact even without her as she has nothing much in the movie and her frames can be counted on fingers. Though the music and background score of the movie certainly kept the movie going and maintained the overall decorum, it alone can not save the sinking ship. Sharman Joshi acted pretty maturely and Faruk also did well in his debut flick.

The unliked part of the movie was its strongly shown wrong, morally incorrect messages which overpowers the lesson from the movie, which kind of wrapped in a hurry in the last moment.

I give 6 points for its commendable background score, nice act by Sharman, Faruk and obviously their younger versions.
