    Probably the world's first movie that revolves around carrom. The game maybe child's stuff in most parts of the world, but in the back alleys of Mumbai, it has been used by the crime bosses to set up a high stakes gambling racket. The fim gets the milieu bang on and is aided by strong, rooted performances.

    What a poignant little story of crude, astute, explosive, complex but at the same time simple and stark 'Surya'. This tight and cliff-hanging movie tells a story of questionable ethics, protagonist's murky fate and his heroic need to get out of the rut from entirely fresh view.

    "Bombay ko jitna bhi dekho, roz thoda aur dikhta hai". That dialogue and having enjoyed both of Chandan's previous 2 efforts was enough to get me hooked onto the movie. However, it couldn't quite maintain the tempo throughout. There are some really nice aspects. An excellent performance by Ankur Vikal, some nice grit though it should have been much for a movie of this genre and an excellent depiction of the Malvani ghetto. However, the movie could have been shorter. At 90 minutes, it could have been a cracker. At 2 hours, it drags a bit. Still a very good watch. And definitely does a better job at handling this genre than movies like Kurbaan/MNIK.

    Siddharth delivers a fine natural act, but also does loads of over acting in a few scenes. The scene stealer is Ankur Vikal, who is simply superb in the role of Zaid. Movie is boring, one time watch...
