Story: The film story revolves around the story of ACP Yashwardhan (John Abraham) working in Narcotics Control Bureau. He and three of his colleagues Atul Kalsekar (Mohnish Behl), Mahesh Pandey (Amit Gaur) and Kamlesh (Kamlesh Sawant) - are out to track down India's drug cartels. He is the one officer who believes that justice should be delivered at any cost. Yash’s strength is that he has no one of his own who can become his weakness. Then enters Maya (Genelia D’ Souza) and became his weakness. In his operation to catch and clear the drug cartels, he encounters Vishnu (Vidyut Jammwal), who will stop at nothing till he retaliate the damage done to his business by the narcotics team. How ACP Yashwardhan deals with Vishnu form the rest part of the story.   

Story Handling: The story is a remake of the blockbuster Tamil film ‘Khakha Khakha’ that starred Suriya. The story is simple and subtle and maintained its pace throughout. The film is engaging and justified the genres of action movie. Action movie with the flavour of romance is the crux of the story. The action sequences sure to make adrenaline rush as they are shot in non-bollywood style and has reality attached to it.  

Star Cast: John Abraham’s portrayal of ACP without much emotion entailed scenes gave a pretty good look to the movie but more emotions can increase the sensitivity of the subject. John Abraham justified the look of an ACP and why not when he struggled hard for almost a year to get that look. Genelia D’Souza repeated herself as a chirpy, happy-go-lucky girl. There is actually nothing much to do for an actress when casted in an action movie. Raj Babbar’s role was a restricted one. Mohnish Behl did a fine job while essaying the emotions. As an audience you could feel his expressions as an officer of conviction. Sandhya Mridul did justice to her role. Kamlesh Sawant was apt as a newcomer. Vidyut Jammwal left his mark as a new breed of villain growing in Bollywood. He terrorise the whole atmosphere in the film and created a platform for John Abraham to perform out of his comfort zone.

Direction: Nishikant Kamat compiled an authentic action movie with pragmatic ending. The direction was well prepared and the sequences were planned which reflected in the performance of the actors. The direction was the one element which was holding the actors together and the film is one of the realistic in recent times. Director gets thumbs up for the effort he made.     

Dialogues / Cinematography / Music: Dialogues are the crux of any movie and in this movie dialogues can be more impressive and expressive rather they were compressed. Cinematography was okay. Harris Jayaraj and Lalit Pandit gave average music which suits the nature of the masses. Hindi movies cannot be complete without music but in an action movie, there is not much scope for the music.

Last Word: A realistic movie unlike other Hindi movies.
