The Indian army assigns this matter to Colonel Ranvir Singh Ranawat, who along with his men, apprehends and arrests the ring-leader Baba Zaheer Khan.

An Islamic terrorist group, Al-Tahit, recruits a group of men to try and spring Baba from prison, albeit in vain as their plans are thwarted by Jaideep, who is now the ACP in Mumbai.

A filmy tale of a realistic story
27 September 2009 | by silvan-desouzaSee all my reviews

Rohit Shetty before starting with crap comedies did a serious film ZAMEEN

The film had his friend and star in every film Ajay Devgan and Abhishek, Bipasha

To start with The KANDAHAR episode is used in the film which was used in YEH DIL AASHIQANA and recently in the crap HIJACK

That is only half of the film rest is all mandatory commercial stuff like songs, dance, fights in slow motions, ego hassles.etc

Abhishek's character is similar to Bachchan's in KAALA PATTHAR the outline at least of his character that of a person who is known as a loser

The film is like a Sunny Deol film with patriotic dialogues often ridiculing Pakistan and stunts in slow motion

The film looks comical at times though it's briskly paced mostly it somehow doesn't get that attention grabbing and ends up being a routine action film Direction by Rohit Shetty is so-so Music is okay

Stunts in abundances are overdone

Amongst actors Ajay repeats his act and got repetitive with this type of roles but he was good compared to rest Abhishek too does a great job though he reminds of his father too much for his own good, Bipasha looks too animated Mukesh Tiwari is as usual rest are okay
