The story revolves around the 69 year old Viju played by Amitabh Bachchan who is an ex-hoodlum, lands in Mumbai on a mission with the underground world who presume him to slay the ACP Karan Malhotra played by Sonu Sood but Viju has a concealed agenda which is unveiled at a later stage of the movie. This action pack thriller which more or less emerges like a South Indian action thriller due to its demeanor of story narration, editing, action scenes and the heroic characters reaches to an interesting finale followed by a poignant homecoming.
Director Jagannadh Puri has endeavored to entertain his spectators with his average directorial dexterity but could have been better if paid attention on the fine details in the movie while the screenplay and cinematography resembled the film-making style of South Indian action thrillers.
The actors have credibly entertained the audience with their acting deftness especially Amtitabh Bachchan who with his matured acting has not left his fans thwarted as usual but Raveena Tandon’s short appearance in the film was uncalled-for, as her feeble acting delivery led no impact on the spectators.
Though some portions of the film are half baked, it can turn out to be a good movie for the fans of Amitabh Bachchan. For many reasons the film seems to be unconvincing at certain level but the projection of the film towards the spectators was good enough. Improvements over cinematography and direction could have elevated the film to an extra level making it more appreciable.
On the whole, the movie is a one time watch but with the release of Aamir’s Delhi Belly Bbuddah Hoga Tera Baap seems to have a strong competition thereby leading it to have an average opening in the box office which forms a reason for the spectators to choose the best amongst the two releases.
