India's Most Wanted is a Bollywood action thriller film directed by Raj Kumar Gupta starring Arjun Kapoor and Amrita Puri. The film is about tracking a terrorist in a secret mission and arresting him without firing bullets. It pays tribute to unsung heroes of our society.
Arjun Kapoor and his team have intelligence that claims that terror bombings of Indian cities is being conducted out of Nepal. The central bureaucrats scoff. They say all the bad guys are in Pakistan and Iran. What are our heroes to do but pool their own money and go on an unsanctioned mission?
The credits at the beginning of this movie claim it is "based on a true situations." I take that to mean there were terror bombings in India at the time indicated, that they did capture them, and that the authorities clammed up about how they caught the bad guys, because all such missions violate some law. So the film makers did what film makers have done since Edison's crew was filming stories about the Russo-Japanese War in New Jersey. They reached into the current collection of cliches of thriller fiction and came up with this bog-standard collection of tropes.
Not that there aren't some nice bits here. I went into the theater wondering how they were going to fit in the musical numbers that seem to be in every modern Indian flick. There we are in the first scene, and it's set at a snack bar, where a musical group is performing. Then a bomb goes off, and suddenly whenever I heard the soundtrack picking up, I clenched my teeth. I wonder if that will last into the next Indian movie I see.
But other than that, it's a standard movie with no redeeming features except that while it doesn't do anything particularly wrong.... well, I always hope for more, and so should you.
