Better than expected!
Mani Shankar after a decent debut 16 December and then the biggest crap RUDRAKSH came with this film.
I had no expectations from it as the promos gave away that it's a routine War film but it isn't.
The film tries to show the life of the soldiers and does a good job But?
The forced love angles act as distraction and all the comic scenes involving Deol.
The movie is well handled and the story goes on well The Kelly Dorjee scene wherein he slashes one guy's stomach is awesome till the entire scene in the water.
Plus the scene wherein Bobby accidentally kills the father of the guy is well handled.
The climax does seem contrived and also the forced commercial ingredients like songs.etc.
Mani Shankar does a good job Music is alright Camera-work is great.
Ajay Devgan acts his part like he usually does, at his best. Bobby Deol shines in his role except when he is made to act like a joker. He brings a nice amt of shyness, simplicity and then braveness to the role. Tanishaa, a cute girl. Kelly Dorjee was awesome and rest were okay.
Overall a worthy film.
Rating: 4 / 5
