U will be glued to your seats, the entire film. BRILLIANT!!!, 25 January 2017
Author: souravt9 from India

The story is simple that a blind man takes revenge but with a lot of twist and turns. Rohan, a proficient dubbing artiste and Supriya, a talented pianist--who despite their handicap have a positive disposition towards life. They fall in love and gets married but something tragic happens and their world is destroyed. That's when Ronit Roy and corrupt police officers, played efficiently by Narendra Jha and Girish Kulkarni, drag their feet over the investigation.When the humiliation gets too much to bear, Supriya caves in, leaving Rohan with vendetta on his mind. Here, the film shifts gears and though you know what's next, the cat and mouse game still gives you an adrenaline rush. Every time the blind vigilante commits an atrocity, you whistle in the aisle. The main highlight is Hrithik's performance. He has literally given it all. Yami provides the perfect foil, subtle and super-effective.Technically the film is adept, Thanks to masters like Sudeep Chatterjee (camera) and Resul Pookutty(sound). However Rajesh Roshan's yesteryear hits—Saara Zamana and Dil Kya Karen in their remixed avatars are pale imitations of their original versions. P.S. Its very emotional and watch out for the last 15 minutes
