Storyline

Mumbai-based Indian Army Officer, Amaan Malik, who lives with his wife, Divya, and daughter, Binty, decides to quit, and seek employment elsewhere. He is then approached by a plainclothes police officer, Ahmad Hussain, and asked to infiltrate a gang of terrorists and bring their ringleader, Sultan, to justice. He initially refuses to do so, but subsequently changes his mind after Divya and Binty are killed in an explosion at a Ganpati Mandir. He is given a new identity, Ahmaan Yusuf Ali, and sent to prison on trumped-up charges where he must seek contact with other terrorists. He dramatically manages to do so, acquires a reputation, and gets to meet RD and his attractive sister, Iya. After considerable violence, including the well-planned execution of Goonga, he gains their confidence and plans are underfoot to finally introduce him to Sultan. But this meeting will be far from welcoming - for Sultan has already been aware that there is a traitor amongst them - and he has made plans to... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

RGV continues to rock
17 July 2008 | by Ram ReddySee all my reviews

I just came out from the premiere show @10PM in PVR, Bangalore. RGV has done it again. I guess once again he has given 2 successful films back to back (Shiva & Kshana Kshanam, Company & Bhoot, Sarkar Raj & Contract). This time he's so cleaver in choosing the subject. He has just given the right film at the right time. Just how it happened to Jaane Tu.. Even though its not so great time, people are prejudiced already prepared to make the film a big hit. Same thing happened here. I have not expected an outstanding film. I (we) liked RGV with Sarkar Raj, with his next film, he just needed to make me (us) not to get bored of it.

Of course, the film starts with a boring note, which picks up speed eventually, and that is the best part of the film. As he finished the boring scenes at the starting, there's no chance for dipping down in the middle.

Upendra Limaye, who's impressed us as Kanthilal Vora (not Vhora), this time steals the show as Goonga. Zakir Hussain, and Prasad Purandhare looked fatter compared to their previous films (Sarkar, Ab tak Chappan) and fatten their acting skills also. Sakshi Gulati is impressive and I'm pleasantly could live with RGV's tight closeups n this is where Adhvik Mahajan failed.

RGV's tight closeups would work with powerhouses like batchchans. They kinda challenge them to bring the best out of them. But it falls flatten when it comes to these newbies. This RGV's new hero could not be spontaneous as he did not given an options to cover his to be groomed facial expressions with his body language. Thanks to RGV as they are less compared to Sarkar Raj.

Background Score, RGV must be missing Sandeep Chouta badly. If not, now he must start. Though its not too pale, as RGV reminds us about Satya and Company, comparisons are inevitable. First thing that struck my mind is Background Score. I so liked Sandeep Chouta in Satya, I had purchased the soundtrack cassette of Satya then. When it comes to Company, sometimes I's confused like who is elevating the scene? is it RGV's direction or Chouta's score. I cant forget the score where it muting Mohan lal's gyan to Vivek oberai in hospital after he's shoot. It continues for couple of minutes so many thing happening on screen. In Contract Amar Mohile's score's completely out of sync in some scenes and it sounds like from some Ekta kapoors TV serial.

I think now RGV mastered the art of making climax interesting. Though it is not as great as Sarkar Raj, it still manages to hold your attention till the last frame.

Despite the excusable flaws for this small budgeted film, RGV's direction sparkled, especially in the middle of the water. Upendra Limaye reminded me of Kota srinivasarao in Gaayam. Amruta Subhash is so lively at the same time so touching when Goonga dies.

Over all, a good entertainer. RGV has come a long way since Satya in terms of story telling. Thats why you could sit through the movie without any Bhiku or Chandu kinds.

Two less to ten, one for hero and one for Background score.

I always wonder why RGV takes so much care of minute details even. Check this scene where Dara comes to a movie theater to kill someone. Screen is not shown but you can hear Jack Nicholson uttering the dialogs from The Departed, which could be related to Contract.

Go for it.
