Storyline

Inspired by the incredible true story of Lucky Singh, an extremely charismatic and fearless confidence man and thief who socialized with the rich, famous and influential of Delhi society and then proceeded to rob them blind. He was the bête noire of the police and had stolen millions by the time he was caught. A modern day Robin Hood with a twist, he robbed both the rich and the poor without prejudice. Nothing was too big nor was anything too insignificant to escape his attention. The film opens with his trial and charts his rise from the projects of crime ridden suburban Delhi to the very heart of the corridors of power. Along the way he makes lifelong friends, falls in love an manages to outwit the entire law and order machinery. Written by Anonymous

Glad to see something New and So Interesting!
18 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I must say, I thought this was just gonna be another flop movie, but it really caught my attention since beginning. Abhay Deol is a very decent actor and his chemistry with the Legendary Presh Rawal in 3 different looks and roles worked really good. Abhay needs to do more roles like this. And the casting was done superbly, even the young boy playing Abhay's role did a very good too. It's very much based on realistic events which turns a young boy into something he can feel good about doing by bothering the society. I must applaud the director for this movie, he did an excellent job portraying the message out. Overall if you are looking to have a good time with something new to see, then definitely grab this!
