Raja (Emraan) and Raghav (Deepak tijori) are best buddies and also conmen doing petty crimes. One day Raja overhears a conversation between two men involving big money. He hatches a plan and teams up with Raghav and gets the loot. But the duo doesn't know that the money belongs to the dreaded gangster Varda (kay kay) and what happens after that forms the rest.
The director has come up with a average storyline and while the presentation was rich, the narrative was good in parts. The dialogues
were good. The script was average but the screenplay made it a bit better. The background score was effective but songs were average. Cinematography was okay. Editing was upto the mark. Costumes were well knit while the art department was colorful. Emraan Hashmi did his best to shoulder the film in an impressive manner and he scored well. Humaima looks pretty and she did her bit as required. Deepak Tijori was brief but good. Paresh Rawal was the scene stealer, he was excellent and Kay Kay Menon was superb.
It takes a good deal of twists and nice script work to ensure that a thriller gives the right impact. In this venture, what ever suspense thrill was left until the end and it worked. However the the emotional, and romantic track was a bore,it didn't work.The first half goes on the right note with elements of some humor, romance and action. The interval bang was interesting but the second half has its share of ups and downs because the script went to dramatic and emotional at times. Still, the overall impact has been quite appealing. Overall watch the film if your an Emran Hashmi fan, its his typical film with loads of masala and kissing. For the rest watch the film because it entertains in parts, and because the ending is great. Expected more from this raja though.
Great movie. Performances are great by everyone and the music is great as well. It's not as good as Jannat 1&2 but it's pretty close.
