Okay movie
4 October 2011 | by amitshetty73See all my reviews

Aan-Men At Work is an average cop movie.It was flop considering there was huge flood of cop movies during 2004.

Direction by Madhur Bhandarkar is not up to the mark. He could have made better cop movie but since producers wanted to commercialize it his direction left lot to be desired.

Performance wise, Akshay Kumar did well although he did such roles before.Sunil Shetty was okay. Lara Dutta and Raveena Tandon were wasted. Shatrughan Sinha was also okay. Paresh Rawal was good. Irrfan Khan was highlight. Jackie Shroff and other villains were okay.

Overall an okay movie which could have been better considering the plot and director it had.
