Fabricated Plot Scores Few Brownie Points. ♦ 64%
19 July 2013 | by See all my reviews

Stereotypes are thwarted in this movie about how the RAW chief plans a secret mission in the current unconventional time (2013). The climax is the sequence I have been waiting for since long to watch in a movie and that is the single why, why I rate it 6.4/10!

Arjun Rampal is suave, Huma Qureshi is hot & plump, Irrfan is genuine, Rishi Kapoor is marvelous while Nasser complements the cast. While their demeanor is brilliant, the performance acts against the plot, speaking of which is immensely fabricated. Since even I don't know what's the truth about terrorism, I am not ridiculing the writer's script. The way the makers have handled the underworld & terrorism factors comes as a shock to me. They have included few facts as well as adopted boldness.

Music & songs are good, cinematography is average, direction is fine & screenplay is garbage. When the plot turns into action sequences, the screenplay tries hard to spoil it, but it sure seems made-up towards the end to bring about a thrilling effect. Crime & violence is prevalent throughout with less to no humor.

Out of the 140 minutes, the boredom meter ticks four-to-five times when monotony enters. Relationship virtue is the basis of second half whereas run-of-the-mill combative melodrama fills the first.

BOTTOM LINE: Recommended to people who love action films which doesn't involve confusion or complex twists.

Can be watched with a typical Indian family? YES

Profanity/Vulgarity: No | Sex/Foreplay/Mouth-Kiss: Mediocre | Violence/Gore: Very Critical | Smoking: Mild | Alcohol: Strong | Drugs: No
