Storyline

There are about 2 Lakh policemen in Mumbai. Tasked with the safety of this enormous city, a majority of them don't necessarily have the "cleanest" of vardis. When four such police inspectors are burnt alive in a series of merciless killings, the entire police force is rocked with terror. The media is looking for answers. The public is on the fence over these killings. These crimes reflect Vir as a person. Bold, Calculating, and Unapologetic. He's not scared of killing, or dying. It was clear that he had an agenda. A reason. A drive; behind these deaths and he was far from done. Fearing the next attack, the Commissioner calls upon their best bet to catch Vir. DCP Shivansh is what a proper policeman looks like. Strong, Courageous, Patriotic and most importantly, "Clean." And of course, he's the best at what he does. What follows is a succession of events that will test his Probity to the fullest. He is up against Vir, who is a vigilante and will stop at nothing to complete his mission. ...

A commercial effort to kindle patriotism that fails
18 August 2018 | by msunandoSee all my reviews

Satyameva Jayate - there's a self-styled vigilante on the rampage, assigning corrupt police officers to flames, cleansing the society. Justified or not, his actions find support from a section of the society that suffers the ills of bribery and extortion at the hands of the law-keepers. Enter an investigator with a clean track record who roars filmy dialogues and is extremely camera friendly, rattling off smooth and well rehearsed interviews to the media like catching the criminal is next to sleepwalking. A cat and mouse chase ensues and the investigator cracks the secret code that gives out clues to the next murder.

Thrilling, ain't it? In reality it is not, I am just playing with words and peaking your interest with no particular objective. The first half is clever and raises your adrenalin level with an offbeat suspense dovetailing into the intermission. And then, as if the second half was made by an altogether different director - it hurtles downhill like potboilers of the 1970's. It turns into an average revenge saga with a predictable and atrociously audacious ending that's a concoction of a dozen old films whose names you can rattle off in your sleep. John Abraham is ho-hum, been there done that deadpan, there's nothing to write about him. Manoj Bajpayee is now officially typecast, takes off from where he left in Aiyaari and then does a Deewar! Newbie Aisha Sharma has precious little to do and Manish Chaudhary is wasted. 4 STARS for this patriotic melodrama that doesn't stir emotions.
