good and intense, but storyline is a little weak.
30 June 2011 | by Hunky StudSee all my reviews

Since there are only four reviews so far, I am writing one now even though I didn't plan to write one.

I am impressed by this film. I have seen quite a few Indian films. Almost all of them are all about girls and guys falling in love, getting married. This is the first Indian crime film that I have ever seen.

The cinematography and score are almost as good as Hollywood films. It seems that in Indian films, whenever they shoot night scenes, they just use dark blue lens and shoot them during daytime. I don't know why, to save money? or maybe they don't have the equipment? Indian films are almost always over two hours long. So in order to make an intense and long film, this film has basically three parts. So it seemed confusing how this guy was able to work for a different terrorist after another, especially for the last one. And Pasha could have easily said something to the other terrorist, etc. There are also a few illogical things, such as his "dad" doesn't know his real name during the first mission, etc.

Overall, it is a good film to watch, but I had to take a break.
