Movie Info

A mob enforcer finds himself pursued by both cops and criminals alike in this action thriller from director Prabhu Deva. Criminal kingpin Gani Bhai (Prakash Raj) might be the most feared gangster in all of Mumbai, and ruthless thug Radhe (Salman Khan) is his right hand man. But for each one of Gani's enemies that Radhe dispenses, another, even more powerful foe quickly pops up to take their place. Later, as Commissioner Ashraf Khan (Govind Namdeo) makes it his mission to eliminate the mafia, Gani strikes up a tempestuous relationship with strong-willed call center employee Jhanvi (Ayesha Takia). When a bounty is placed on Gani's head and the cops start to close in, the rogue enforcer must use every resource at his disposal to avoid getting caught or killed. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Khan and Deva will do just about anything for effect, and even an over-the-top amoral revenge fantasy needs a shred of internal consistency.

Audience Reviews for Wanted

½

Wanted, from director Prabhu Deva, has a bit of everything, and like a puzzle it takes a while to put everything together.

The run time is quite long at around 2 hours and 20 minutes, but take away the music videos and it shortens to 2 hours. The fast pacing of the scenes and the various subplots come and go in entertaining fashion; however, with all that is going on, it is a bit difficult to get a firm grasp on the plot itself.

The 5 musical pieces take advantage of luxurious settings and lots of dance choreography. The songs themselves can be catchy and most are upbeat dance numbers.

The action is a lot of wire work stunts and camera effects. The violence, while not excessively bloody, is gruesome when it comes to the deaths and major hits. This is a bit of a surprise when comparing to the other elements of the film.

The acting is good for what it is, as the characters are more on the unconventional side. Salman Khan is a believable thuggish hero and Ayesha Takia is enticing just with her gorgeous looks.

When all is said and done, the romantic flirting, quirky side characters, and action somehow mesh together into one film known as Wanted.

One of the crappiest movie I have seen lately. The story makes no sense, humor has been forced into the movie out of the blue and songs have no connection to the rest of the story. PLEASE DON'T WATCH THE MOVIE and INCREASE YOUR LIFE BY 2-3 HOURS
