Sahir Khan (Aamir Khan) is the son of Iqbal Farooq Khan (Jackie Shroff), a circus owner who kills himself when he totally failed to pay off the loan to the Western Bank of Chicago. Traumatized with his father’s death, Sahir Khan sets his mission to shut down the bank and simultaneously takes forward his father’s circus (The Great Indian Circus). The talented circus boy grows up and hatches few plans to rob the bank.
In order to leave his impact among the bank officials, Sahir writes a message in Hindi after every bank robbery. Alerted with his robberies, the bank management takes help of two Indian cops - ACP Jaideep Krishna (AbhishekBachchan) and Ali (Uday Chopra) from Mumbai police team.
Aliya (Katrina Kaif), who is a co-partner to Sahir in circus,falls for him. Interestingly, Sahir comes up all the ways to rob the bank and at a point; he even teams up with Jaideep and Ali to sneak the blue print of the bank.
Does Sahir succeed in extorting the money from the bank that is responsible for his father suicide? This forms the nexus for the rest of the story.
Though the director has come up with a good plot, he couldn’t perfectly execute it on-screen. About 50mins of the story goes around some shoddy introductions of characters and Katrina keeps you wait for about an hour, after which it picks up some pace. The action episodes don’t measure up to the expectations or the so called “Hollywood” standards, given the budget and hype of the film. Screenplay isn’t slick and robust enough for this so-called action thriller. He has definitely got a top-notch cast that can do wonders for him but he has failed to cook a feast for this festive season.
If you want us to speak out the worst part of the movie, we would definitely say it as ‘Editing’. Editing by RiteshSoni was an upset for the supposed action-genre.
Lag in action episodes, unconvincing stunts factually depresses the movie-goers. Shabby stunts and action sequences are the head bang for the viewers. But the sheer grandeur of the film will set you mind-boggling.
