10.40 PM show at PVR.. it’s already 10.20 PM.. my food from the nearby restaurant is yet to arrive.. I don’t want to miss the beginning.. but I also do not want to miss those yummy American corn enchiladas.. Toh ab.. kya karega Deep? Kya wo.. khana kahega aur movie jaega..
Aah.. enough of crap.. I decided to take that pack of enchiladas in hand and decided to eat while driving.. (Yea yea.. I know drive safe thing.. my wife was feeding me :P) But trust me.. I was waiting for this movie for last few weeks… this one was the 2nd most awaited movie after Mumbai Meri Jaan (Which I did not like much..)… had very high hopes for this one as it had superb actors like Naseeruddin Shah and Anupam Kher..
So was it worth doing all the above thing? Hell.. Yea.. it was.. here we go…
The story is very simple.. an unidentified person (Naseeruddin Shah) calls up the police commissioner (Anupam Kher) and informs about 5 blasts in Mumbai. In exchange of the information of bomb planted areas, he demands release of 4 terrorists from the jail. He gives very short period of time to act (couple of hours) and in that time, the police commissioner has to decide the fate of Mumbai.
So, sounds like a common story? Haha.. yea it does but it is certainly NOT.. I am not opening more cards as I want you guys to watch it without fail..
I really loved this movie.. just amazing one.. not too long.. not too short.. no crap scenes.. they wrapped up the movie in almost 2 hours.. everything was just cut to cut.. nothing additional.. nothing less.. just perfect. The movie had few comic scenes too but strictly limited to the plot.
Also, the movie had many hard hitting scenes.. specially the ones which belonged to Jimmy Shergil.. (Yea.. he can act too) He had a very serious role in the movie.. A strict police (ATS) officer… everyone is afraid of this guy.. no one dares to utter a word against him..
On the other hand.. Anupam Kher.. a police commissioner.. a very calm and really smart person.. never acts in hurry and knows what step to take and at the right time..
Naseeruddin Shah.. BRILLIANT is the word. No one can beat him.. He is portrayed as a simple man but very smart.. knows what tools to use, how to fool police.. he has got his great network setup of collection of SIM cards, laptop and all on the top of the terrace.
Apart from these 3 actors.. rest of the guys acted well too.. (the news reporter and other police officer – sorry don’t recollect the actor names)
So, overall.. the movie was simply FANTASTIC.. really hard hitting.. leaves a very strong message in the end.. perfect direction.. editing.. everything was perfect.
I must say… this one is one of the best movies I have seen in the recent times..
A definite MUST WATCH.. [rating:4/5]
