Storyline

Every love story has a hero, a heroine, and a villain. But this is the love story of a villain. Guru is a quiet, tough, and ruthless man, who works for a crooked politician. A dark past refuses to let Guru sleep at night until he meets Aisha. He falls in love with her and his life changes. Just when things seem perfect, she falls prey to an attack. Devastated, Guru starts hunting the miscreant and is shocked to learn of his seemingly innocuous and simple identity. Does Guru succeed in getting even with the assailant? And what is the motive behind the killings? The plot thickens as the astonishing mystery unveils and new realizations come to the forefront. Written by Gaurav Thakur

Could have been a lot smoother
29 June 2014 | by PRSanyalSee all my reviews

I expected a lot more twist watching the trailer. But still it did not disappoint me. Ritesh Deshmukh was quite the villain, loved his acting. Shraddha Kapoor, is someone I feel I will definitely fall in love if she keeps the way she is portraying the sweet charming, innocent girls. Sidharth is getting momentum in his acting career, getting better and better in each film. Good to see Remo, I wish he had a song in the film. Action was better than average Bollywood movies, realistic except for the scene where Rakesh forces Ayesha out of the window.

Songs are really catchy, the item song added bit flavor as well. A film that I would recommend to watch at least once but not more than once. The reason why I rated the 7 out of 10.
