Storyline

Mumbai-based Indian Army Officer, Amaan Malik, who lives with his wife, Divya, and daughter, Binty, decides to quit, and seek employment elsewhere. He is then approached by a plainclothes police officer, Ahmad Hussain, and asked to infiltrate a gang of terrorists and bring their ringleader, Sultan, to justice. He initially refuses to do so, but subsequently changes his mind after Divya and Binty are killed in an explosion at a Ganpati Mandir. He is given a new identity, Ahmaan Yusuf Ali, and sent to prison on trumped-up charges where he must seek contact with other terrorists. He dramatically manages to do so, acquires a reputation, and gets to meet RD and his attractive sister, Iya. After considerable violence, including the well-planned execution of Goonga, he gains their confidence and plans are underfoot to finally introduce him to Sultan. But this meeting will be far from welcoming - for Sultan has already been aware that there is a traitor amongst them - and he has made plans to... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

RGV never had the grip on the movie!
30 July 2008 | by sagar79See all my reviews

RGV's latest movie "Contract" tries to throw all its flaws straight on your face. It is just so easy to pick so many of them in movie.

First of all poor star cast; absolutely! None of them had a hold on their characters. So much so, many of the characters make you feel they were not required at all - like the gangster's wife - damn what was she trying to portray? the martial arts specialist's role was crap. I even feel the commissioner's role was enacted without even a basic level of stature.

Shabby dialogues and one-liners; Most of actors tried too much to show thinking(staring?)faces(Sarkar Style) and say one liners as if they are trying to remember their dialogues! The lead character and his love interest need professional training in acting. Even some of the dialogues are so short and stupid even kids will find them laughable such as..."It's a secret!?" Now, I truly believe... one liners or punch dialogues can be pulled off only by seasoned actors.

Poor background music and soundtrack; They were the hallmarks of cult movies like Satya and Company - but for contract it is big thumbs down.

The Plot; The start of the movie itself rushes the concept to the viewer so fast that you immediately know how the story is going to end like... and that's it... you loose interest and wait to watch who is worst actor among the cast.

Sadly, RGV's magic shows have run out of tricks. Gone are the glory days. I still hope RGV will comeback with a masterpiece like Satya.
