Storyline

Mumbai-based Nandkumar Sharma is a high-priced hit-man. He is paid a princely 1.5 Crore Rupees to injure Anna Mhatre, so that the later can get enough 'sympathy' votes to get him elected as the next Chief Minister, but ends up killing him. On the run from the Police, he ends up assuming the guise of Hoshiyarpur's Puran Singh, who has been away from home for the last 18 years, and does succeed in fooling Puran's joint family. But his hopes for settling there appear to be in vain with the arrival of a CBI Team, led by Inspector Mahendra Kumar Rane - who is determined to expose and arrest Nandkumar at any and all costs.

Average Actioner
25 June 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I was quite looking forward to this and ignored the reviews because I like my 'masale' bollywood movies from time to time and it did have Nana in it. However, I was slightly disappointed to find nothing new story wise which I'm sure has similarities to Bobby Deol's Badal. Nothing quite stands out in the film so it's understandable why it wasn't a hit. Positivies were Nana Patekar who even though needed more screen time in his limited role still managed to nearly save the film with his unique and funny womaniser character and the actress, who I saw for the first time was simply stunning. Now I have found out Shriya Saran is big in the south but hopefully she'll get to test her acting skills with more Hindi commercial films. Overall, decent performances all round making it good timepass giving is slightly better than 5 - 6/10
