I watched this movie yesterday. Thought of giving a review here. You have probably watched this movie or may have read the critics that its not a good film. But for me it’s a good film. I cannot call it fantastic or superb but it’s a good film indeed.
Ajay Devgan plays the role of Sameer Khan (Ashpak during the start) . A guy who plays street dramas named Halla Bol. Pankaj Kapoor is his Guru. to try his luck in actings he travels to Mumbai and after a struggle for months he gets a film “Azaadi” turning hit. Then hits after hits lead him to a Superstar level. But now he fears to fight against the truth and fears to loose his gained Superstar name. And hence he doesn’t stand as an eye witness for a murder which of course happened in front of him.
The Ashpak in Sameer wakes up at this time and then he stands as a witness for this case. Many troubles come and his Guru always comes for the rescue. The Minister tries to save his son who was involved in the murder. And die to that Sameer looses the case. But he fights through street play. During the play Ministers “Gundas” beat him very badly as the police stay there as an audience. And then the ending. I revealed much of the story but still there is something left to watch.
Ajay Devgan’s acting is good but cannot call it as a great performance. He could have done better. Vidya balan doesn’t have much role to play. Pankaj kapoor is at his best as always. A typical Rajkumar Santoshi film where most of the time heroine doesn’t have much role to play.
We’ve been watching films which mostly target youngster. This one is also one of them. Young India should realize that they are the only hope against the corrupt politicians and government. They are the only one who can rescue. this film is for them. It gives a message and I feel that the director’s attempt has succeeded in that. It’s not at all a bad film to watch. I’ll rate this film as 3.5/5.
