Storyline

Vijay Singh Rajput (Amitabh Bachchan) is a quirky manager of Vilasrao Jefferson Bank. He is extremely strict at work and believes in pushing his workers to the limit. This means that his superiors hold him in high regard for his unblemished reputation and excellent track record. But things go terribly wrong for the honest bank manager when he finds one of his own employees trying to con the customers. At this, he loses his temper and gets physical with the employee. This doesn't go down well with his superiors and they decide that Rajput is now a liability to the bank and they sack him. Amitabh can't believe the Board of Directors and his mind is filled with revenge and what better revenge than robbing the bank himself, ironic as it may sound. He decides that he must think of a plan that will hit the bank where it hurts the most - in its safe where all the money is kept.

a very good film that is worth watching.
11 July 2006 | by krishnachaitanya009See all my reviews

this movie is indeed a movie that isn't quite a regular bollywood fare. It is a very well made movie with EXCELLENT performances from each of the cast.the only place the movie lacked was in certain applications of scenes where much more care was needed,....also where in the world does a bank have a skateboard left in the middle of its hall?.....but apart from few glitches and certain lapses that occurred to indianize the movie.....the rest was impressively done. the previous reviewer certainly was out of his mind when he said that making top stories and screenplays was beyond bollywood writes/directors......bollywood has churned out the best of the movies ......its just that the western audience cannot connect to certain things which they don't see in their society.our dear friend seems to childishly adore their out of the world,out of the mind movies. anyways, AANKHEN has been inspired by an English movie but still has its original values....specially the drama scenes where the 3 protagonists connect with each other. This movie has been highly underrated,and deserves a viewing at least to appreciate its plot and performances..... P.S:- Paresh rawal was at his very best and his performance is a major thing to watch in this movie.
