| A commercial effort to kindle patriotism that fails
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.
