Aflatoon is an ordinary masala flick involving twins, or, in this case, identical looking guys. The movie stars Akshay Kumar as a happy-go-lucky young and smart man who looks for the easiest way to become rich. Once mistakenly appointed as a college professor, Raja finally gets the perfect opportunity to make his dreams come true when he meets the young and pretty Pooja. Raja and Pooja ultimately fall in love, but when her father meets him for the first time, he is shocked. Barring the colour of his eyes, Raja looks exactly like a commonly known criminal named Rocky, who has been blackmailing Pooja's father for quite some time now. From then on begins a journey in which Raja helps the police capture Rocky. Aflatoon is partly a romance, partly a thriller, and as expected, it's packed with action and suspense. The film's second half is much more enjoyable because it's appropriately twisted, but the direction often lets the movie down. The songs are catchy but forgettable, and the script itself is not well written, though it does not really matter here. Akshay Kumar plays his two roles quite effectively within the parameters of this film, and he does particularly well with his first negative role, which in itself is rather clichéd but made entertaining by his stylish portrayal. Urmila Matondkar is wasted in an ornamental role, but she is as sexy as ever. Kumar and Matondkar have a great chemistry in the only film they ever did together. Aflatoon is far from being extraordinary, but it is fairly enjoyable and entertaining, more for fans of the genre and Akshay Kumar fans in particular.
