ENEMMY: Film Review

ENEMMY: Film Review
You might guess the filmmakers of ENEMMY got the spelling wrong. No… the explanation is Eklavya-Naeem-Eric-Madhav-Mukhtar-Yugantar. Sounds like some school buddies naming their gang? This description came into limelight with the song ‘Hit The Lights’ rolling along with the end credits. One can see yesteryear Disco Dancer shaking his legs to this number. Wish there was more. No use talking about something that wasn’t there. Let’s have a quick peek into what was there in the movie.

The story revolves around the lives of four officers from a Special Unit, Eklavya (Suniel Shetty), Naeem (Kay Kay Menon), Madhav (Mahaakshay Chakraborty) and Eric (Johny Lever). They are deployed to stop the gang wars that has broken out in the city owing to a huge amount of money that went missing. In order to control the situation, they arrest the biggest don Mukhtar Menon (Zakir Hussain) but inspite of the fact that he is behind the bars, the gang wars don’t cease. Here comes the lead hero, CBI Officer Yugantar Sharma (Mithun Chakraborty). While investigating the entire scenario, many twists in the plot unfold. What follows is how he realizes the actual culprits who stole the money, how he brings an end to Mukhtar’s operations from the prison and how he gets the money back into the society.

Talking about the plot, the main twist unravels way too early before the intermission and the second half of the movie is a series of chaotic dishoom-dishooms and bullet firings. All this backed with dialogues that makes no sense compared to the context.

Apart from the storyline, it was a pleasure to watch Mithun Da back on screen. He and Suniel Shetty did justice to the roles. Kay Kay Menon, yet another stellar actor somehow hams for the first time. Johnny Lever, popular comedian tried his best to play a stern cop onscreen but owing to his career history, it was a bit tough to accept him in the role. Better than his debut flick, Haunted, Mahaakshay got a decent role and tried to save his otherwise doomed career. The other star cast were next to invisible with nothing much to contribute to the story. This holds true even for the antagonist, Mukhtar. Guess the bad man needed to be stronger and a better "bad man".

The sound design was too loud and clichéd. There are only three songs in the movie with Bappi Lahiri as the Music Director. Unfortunately, none of them are worth a mention. Even the lyrics of the item number performed by Mumait Khan was altered owing to the objection raised by the Censor Board.

Just a new avatar of all the cliches Bollywood could produce, ENEMMY had a few unique things to boast about:
  • Father & Son duo sharing screen space for the first time.
  • Suniel Shetty is back in action after 2 years. His last movie was Loot (2011).
  • Johnny Lever’s first ever serious on-screen character.
Set in Mumbai, the movie is all about law and (dis)order as the tagline says along with the conflict between Mumbai mafia gangs and police. Director Ashu Trikha has simply restricted the entire theme of the movie to the olden era formula – political drama, corrupted cops and underworld dons. In short, old wine presented in a new bottle.
