CAST & CREW
In this action-packed gangster movie, Harman Baweja makes his comeback along with Sunny Deol in a Haryanvi criminal persona. The movie was produced by Shilpa Shetty and her husband Raj Kundra along with Eros International.
Plot Dishkiyaoon starts in a prison cell where Viki Kartoos[Harman Baweja] narrates his story to Lakwa [Sunny Deol] in a flashback style portrayal of his journey to becoming a gangster with an eye for the throne. He finds his resolve in the Mumbai underworld and to plot the story of his revenge and ambition joins the gang ofMota Tony [ Prashant Narayanan]. With a difficult childhood, Viki is left to be raised by his father [Rajit Kapoor], having lost his mother at a young age. Among Gandhian advice from his father and dealing with school bullies, he decides to lead a life of crime with no regrets and high regards.To fill in for the romance part of the film, Ayesha Khanna, in her debut film, plays the role of a singer with a sad story of her own, knowingly falls in love with a criminal played by Harman Baweja.
Analysis The movie has complex situations and conspiracies ending of deception and twists. Vik uses brains to get to where he wants, which lets the movie set itself apart from other such movies, although there is no lack of action sequences and heroic shootouts that are equally compelling. It also features an Item song by Shilpa Shetty along with the end credits. The action, crime drama written and directed by debutant Sanamjit Singh Talwar, seemed like a good movie from the trailer and promotions, though failed at many levels including its box office performance. A script with a lot of potential is wasted, and the violence turns senseless very quickly.
The movie has over-hyped dialogues and too many clichéd characters that put down the performances by the cast.
