CAST & CREW
The movie begins with Beera (a bandit) kidnapping Ragini, wife of the superintendent of police, Dev. Beera is like the Robin Hood whom the villagers respect but the police chases. He intends to kill Ragini, but she refuses to die in the hands of such a man and jumps off, but does not die. Beera then decides to kill someone who is afraid of death and, therefore, kidnaps Dev’s assistant and sub-inspector, Hemant. Dev is helped by Sanjeevani Kumar in finding Ragini while this happens. Ragini finds Hemant in a terrible state and confronts Beera. She then learns the truth about his sister’s death. Eventually, both of them begin to develop feelings for each other where Beera openly accepts them and Ragini is unclear about them. After his brother being killed, Beera sets the police tents on fire and indulges in a fight with Dev. He nearly kills him. Will Beera actually kill Dev? What will be Ragini’s fate? Will Beera die? To answer these questions, do watch the movie.
Abhishek Bachchan worked very hard to fit into the character, and that is evident. It does lack some amount of ease of acting. Aishwarya, on the other hand, does a pretty good job.
The movie is Mani Ratnam’s take on the epic Ramayana, with a husband looking for his kidnapped wife with the help of someone found in the jungle. The antagonist is avenging the man for his sister’s death. But the end takes a toll on the whole setting. In the entire movie, an attempt to show Beera’s madness and so of his allies is amazing. They clearly succeed in it. The dialogues, however, could have been much better.
The fight sequence, in the end, is something not frequently seen in Indian cinema. The look given to all characters fits well for the kind of madness they wanted to show.
What’s not there?
The script could have had a lot more interesting elements and depth. The end is seen more as an extra plot added to the story forcefully.
Watch it if you don’t have any concrete plans.
