The menacing John Clive has the Indians clenched in his fist. Leading to a revolution by the righteous Azaad (Amitabh Bachchan) Captain James Powell, Clive's second in command contracts the sly thug Firangi (Aamir Khan) to get them Azaad. As destined he finds himself amid Azaad, his rebels and the beautiful warrior Zafira (Fatima Sana Shaikh). Will he forgo his selfish desire for nation's freedom?
There are no cast/crew edits in the opening, just the production company's logo and a couple of disclaimers. See more »
The Chinese version edited major portions of Amitabh Bachchan and Fatima Sana Shaikh's roles and keeping in mind Aamir Khan's popularity in China, it featured him in a more meatier and prominent role and also included certain deleted scenes featuring him to lengthen his role. The Indian version was 164 minutes long, while this version was 120 minutes long. See more »
Don't get me wrong, it's not a good film be any measure. But it's not nearly as bad as the reviews and press makes out to be. There are far
Worse movies out there that deserve the 3/10 score much more than this one. Aamir Khans acting for one was very refreshing. It was a difficult role to play, and despite some really lousy direction and dialogue, he did a fantastic job. I thought the overall story wasn't bad, the period/pirate setting was good as well (could've done without the Jack Sparrow inspiration and slaps though). But it was the direction and execution that just was of very very low quality. On top of that they were way too ambitious with CGI and action sequences given their skills, and that backfired.
Overall a decent story line, fantastic acting by Aamir, but let down by terrible direction and dialogue. Aamir and the audience should probably stay away from this director as a general rule.
