Storyline

Mumbai-based middle-classed Jhanvi, who lives with her widowed mother and younger brother, has three suitors. The first is much older and considerably overweight - Sonu Gates. The second is Police Inspector Talpade, who is already married to Nandini, but lusts after Jhanvi so much so that he creates circumstances that will force her to marry him. The third is a male named Radhey - who often comes to her rescue - but breaks her heart when she finds out who is really is - a cold-blooded killer who works for a gangster named Ghanibhai. The later is a ruthless gangster who challenges Police Commissioner Ashraf Taufeeq Khan with impunity, and even abducts his daughter to ensure his personal safety.

Ghajini is so 2008......!!!!!
19 September 2009 | by hramnaniSee all my reviews

This is my first ever movie review on IMDb. I am a huge movie buff but too lazy to post my views about them here. Finally, I am writing for my Superstar, our Superstar, India's Superstar, The Only Superstar - Salman Khan.

I just returned from the night show and boy I was entertained. I have been Salman's fan since his very first flick - Maine Pyar Kiya. I think I am his biggest fan alive. Have seen Andaz Apna Apna over 35 times and still watch it whenever I have the time. But, Salman's recent movies were heartbreakingly disappointing. Like many of his other fans too I was praying and hoping that Wanted would deliver much much and much much more.

I was not disappointed this time and boy am I happy at that. The movie starts off well and holds its pace throughout. All the characters played their parts well. The songs were good, although I was disappointed at Ishq Vishq being cut off. The fight sequences were mind blowing. Ayesha looked cute as ever. Overall I would give Wanted a 10/10 as it has everything that a Bollywood movie buff and hardcore Salman fan would expect.

Some people think that they are too far above the so called "Masses". For them, movies for the masses are not good enough and they feel ashamed to praise such a movie, coz it does not have SRK dancing around a girl in foreign locations. For me, Wanted is a superb film, even if it's for the masses - I am a part of the masses - ain't I. Still these over the moon film critics go to see - "Ayesha Takia's big, big goodies" which for them - "are a treat to watch."

Finally, Ghajini (with due respect to it) looks so 2008 now ;)
