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.

Worth a watch once
7 May 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Ek the power of one is a film that can be watched once for fun.Remake of Athadu,this film does not have the same punch and thrill as that,but nevertheless it is tolerable. The film is about a hardcore hit-man who goes on the run from the police after being misunderstood as the killer of a politician in Mumbai,lands up with a mistaken identity in an aristocratic family in Punjab,and how he deals with a CBI cop who is hot on his trails,and tries to prove his innocence in the killing Music is fully Rock-guitar lovers will like it. Bobby and Nana do a good job,but perhaps it is not a role entirely suited for Bobby. There's some degree of overacting among the ladies. Comedy is unremarkable. Watch it for timepass.
