Borrowed concept.. works well
13 September 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

More than "TAKEN" this movie reminds a lot of the movie Kevin Kline starred "TRADE". Travelling by van with girls around, one girl committing suicide en route destination, Cold hearted Pimp, girls' brother bidding for her sister, .. lot of resemblances. But it works well because it is much more believable in an Indian set up. Even though there was a statistics provided about how many are smuggled into it, i like to believe it is 10 times more in India than in other places. Hero has to show lot more expression. If you get a chance watch the movie TRADE. It is very good as well. Subbu panju's appearance was surprising at the end
