A weak second movie after a strong debut by Kabeer, the director.
As it was a movie directed by Kabeer Kaushik of "Seher" fame, i was expecting much more than served. The promos were lacking the pull and so was the movie. It started off as a regular revenge drama when a child witnesses the murder of his family and then remembers it to take his revenge later on in his youth.

The child is picked by a naxalite group led by Danny and he transforms him into a sharp shooter Bobby Deol. The twist in the story comes when Bobby is chosen by the Intelligence Agencies to work for them. And thats it, no other novelty is there in the plot and there are the same old sub plots of love and emotions seen several times before on the silver screen.

It is strange why the director selected this script, which had nothing new to offer and had no experimentation which was seen in his first movie "Seher". Subjects on Police and Intelligence Agencies seem to be the favorites of Kabeer Kaushik. But this time he has not given even half of what was there in "Seher".

Though the performance of Bobby Deol needs special mention but that goes unnoticed as the film fails to generate any interest. He shows improvement in his act as an extension to what he played in "Bichhoo". But an entire talented starcast is just doing nothing in the film. Priyanka Chopra looks ravishing but has no characterisation to work on. Irfan Khan, Ritesh Deshmukh, Rajpal Yadav, Deepal Shaw are simply there doing their act unconvincingly. There are no relief moments as both Ritesh & Rajpal are given intense characters for a change, which sadly does not work.

Music also has the same feel of being unimpressive and Monty has just given a regular score for the movie. Action is good but the viewer gets an overdose of bloodshed. In the recent times, similar kind of subjects have been seen earlier in "Contract" and many more.

So there in very less to offer this time by the talented director as his script lets him down.
