Look, this was a well thought out world movie okay?! The kind of movie you wanna watch while you're on an international flight. Although, you should actually watch it in high definition with lossless audio nomsayin?...It's definitely a collector's movie because back in 2004, this movie was all the rage in India, I lived there. John Abraham later appears to be on the fence about everything, not even cherishing his Kerala Christian heritage. That's a little off topic but the good things about this movie is that it re-ignites the "something" that's been put off in India for a long time...in retrospect. The desire for freedom and taking on the big banks, if you will. They get away with it as if it were no big deal. And no, the cheesy parts are only the few songs that are in the movie, except the one during the last robbery scene. There's that special something about this movie that sums up the essence of the 2000s...much better than many hollywood counterparts. Sure, the F&F series were cool but that's all about cars and a broken system...which goes on an on an on but this one is something special.
It kinda takes a bit for the characters to develop. Then it kinda turns in the a wanna be James Bond movie at the end with the stunts. I'm going to call Shenanigans on the M9's effective range though. It doesn't really have as many songs as I'm used to, but they were pretty good. I'll be honest and say I watched this because I wanna watch the second one. But I'm glad that I did.
Interesting movie! Jai is on the search for a group responsible for several bank robberies, and discovers that it is thieves on motorbikes. Along with Ali (a mechanic), he searches for Kabir and his cohorts. Great performance by John Abraham. Great cast- Abhishek Bachchan, John Abraham, Uday Chopra, Esha Deol, and Rimi Sen. Worthy!
