Though this is based on the revenge theme and subsequent kidnap as a means of vengence, there is sufficient scope in the story to show family values or the lack of them. The story is told in fast paced vignettes and intricate action episodes.
Sonia (Minissha Lamba) lives with her mother, Mallika (Vidya Malvade). f Divorced from husband Vikrant
Raina (Sanjay Dutt), Mallika tries to bring up her daughter. Sonia wants freedom. When she goes out for a swim, she is kidnapped by Kabir Sharma (Imran Khan).
The kidnapper has a score to settle with Sonia’s rich father Vikrant who is living in New York. Vikrant is told by Kabir to follow a particular set of rules and tasks and complete them to get his daughter back.
Will Vikrant get his daughter back? Will the family unite? Has the kidnapper got his pound of flesh? The answers to these questions deal with the rest of the story.
Sanjay Dutt has given a power-packed performance and assayed his role as a troubled father with a lot of
conviction. Imran Khan is definitely talented and his interpretation of a negative role is very convincing. He emotes well.
Minissha Lamba, though putting on sexy outfits, gives a professional performance. Vidya Malvade is good in her role as a divorced woman. All other characters are adequate in their roles.
The storyline and screenplay gives the director Sanjay Gadhvi an excellent opportunity to weave a stylistic crime drama. Dialogues are meaningful in the crucial scenes. Music is in sync with the narration of the story. Cinematography is on par with international standards. Editing and audiography are good.
A very well made stylish film that thrillingly captures a kidnap crime drama. This film will impress all those who like action flicks. The innovative takes of the film will be appreciated by the audience.
