Could have been better
19 December 2008 | by AvinashPatalaySee all my reviews

There was no hype about this movie and in all fairness is not too bad. But yes, it definitely could have been a lot better. The plot had lots of scope and potential.

Broadly the story can be divided into three chapters– the childhood, naxalite and the assassination agent. IMO – either it should have been a linear progression as opposed to jumping back-and-forth in the narrative or simply trimmed it into two chapters. BTW – the childhood has shades of Agneepath.

Bobby Deol:: Simply put - he attempts Jr. B of Sarkar. The restrained performance doesn't suit him – yet. It was clearly evident that it was forced down his throat. Halo-effect perhaps? Priyanka:: Very average performance. The role was similar to Dimple Kapadia's in Arjun.

Ritiesh Deshmukh: A very-very special appearance kind of role.

Danny:: Should have given more screen time to develop his character and the basis of his ideology. In terms of performance, there wasn't anything special to mention about.

Irfan Khan:: Very impressive considering the fact that the role demanded various shades to it and effectively strikes a fine balance between his duty and personal agenda.

Songs were unwarranted.
