One Line Review: Firing a rusted gun with no kartoos!

Positive Points: Good music, moderate art direction.

Negative Points: Poor screenplay, meager performance from the lead, confusing script and overcrowded star cast.

Plot: It's a tale of a shy, feared kid Viki (Harman Baweja) who narrates his life saga, journey from a kid coming out of a decent family to the youngster roaming free in the dark lanes of underworld after getting rid of bullying in the school days to one of cell mate Lakhwa (Sunny Deol), a Haryanawi goon. Viki's ride is however is lead or good to say driven by another mafia pin Mota Tony (Prashant Narayan) under the shed of their lord to which later the duo backfire and get their shelter under the wings of Khaleefa (Sumeet Nijhawan).

But here too, the duo are watched up by Khaleefa's one of the most important person, Rocky (Anand Tiwari). On the other hand, Viki is trying hard to fulfill his dream to become the kingpin of this world for which his route goes through Khaleefa. But, as they say "Ganda hai par dhanda hai yeh", Viki too gets soaked in into this dirt pit after his parental figure Tony gets brutally killed.

Now all alone on his path, Viki aka Viki Kartoos has a lot of things to be settled; fulfilling his dream of becoming the kingpin along with the vengeance of his beloved Tony. And for all this his aid becomes none other than Lakhwa himself.

Direction and Other Technical aspects: With his first project, the director Sanamjit Talwar looks quite curious, so what he has tried to do all that he is possible to do. This is what that has spoiled the soup, from hardcore action to a thrilling script and layers of suspense has not at all indulged the viewers, rather has confused the to the core. Even the touch of romance which is the only soothing part has been wasted due to the tangled screenplay.

Rest other technicalities like cinematography and art direction has been decent enough to get the feature some limelight. Over all, the much of suspense and crowded star cast brawls the viewers attention, making it a ride better be got out of.

Performances: As the film is all talked about as the comeback of its star, let's begin with Harman Baweja. The actor went missing after his last 'What's Your Raashee?' and is back now after a long. But poor lad this too didn't seem to have worked by his way as here too he looks low in confidence. Harman has managed to grab some eye balls with his dance moves, but cannot come out of the shadows of his lookalike Hrithik Roshan, merely it seems as Hrithik's acting on screen, but without perfection.

Next comes the eye catcher, the action hero Sunny Deol. His enact as a handicapped Haryanwi goon stands apart from the rest of the cast. This proves to be one of his never seen avatar but sheerly misses the glimpse of glitter, all thanks to his not so long screen presence.

Ayesha Khanna as an independent Mumbaiite has contributed a decent share of effort. With so many actors, talents like Anand Tiwari, Prashant Narayan, Aditya Pancholi and many others are not utilized to their par.

Music: Composers Palash Muchhal and Sneha Khanwalkar have showcased their talent well in advance when the charts went on air. With public appraisal, the overall track sound decent and can be given a chance. The background score however has been average throughout the feature.

Final Verdict: With tough competition from rivals 'Youngistaan' and 'O Teri', the celluloid has to struggle hard to match the level of rest two unique librettos. However, the saga of suspense thriller is a lot confusing and thus seems to be watching a 2005 thriller all over again merely with a fresh track list.
