What's there in this movie?.

The whole plot of this movie is,it is a vegeance between one ascetic and his brother who backstabbed his own family.

The story unfolds in 18's times,the visuals are stunning without any negatives in it.

The costumes and scenes are more like western style,i think it is a rare piece of gem in bollywood because this kind of movies don't comes often.

The best thing of this movie is two, one is Saif Ali khan,he totally changed that wandering ascetic,he proved himself as a versatile actor by this movie.other one is cinematography and technical works,in this movie, all these works are pakka mainly camera works that shaking and blurring of frames while hero travelling on horse added more realistic to the scenes.

Though Saif Ali Khan performance is excellent,the majestic or magnificence is added by the costume works.

The songs are more like religious one and good.the dialogues and the dialogue delivery builded up the hero character to next level as Ghost mainly that witch role.

The action scenes are cool and also a terrific one,most of them are gun wars except few,like hero's. Hero intro scene is also a chock full of cool action scenes and a promising start to watch.

Deepak Dobriyal played a interesting and ensemble character along with hero.the role of him is more funny and arouse curiosity in each scenes like he can track anyone by his smelling power for money,even it is for villain or hero,the king of him is money.the catchy dialogue howdodoo? of him also added more to that character.

Manav Vij from the starting showed his strong negative role by his acting.the screenplay is also given much oppurtunity to each characters to show them role in better way.

Zoya Hussain,i thought she is a heroine and pair for Saif Ali Khan,but it doesn't worked that way,she played a little negative role in this movie.

Sonakshi Sinha played a cameo role for just few seconds i think. Madan Deodhar tried few funny bits but rather entertaining, it irritated us.

Simone Singh, Aamir Bashir,Neeraj Kabi travelled the whole story with little importance to that character.

What's not there in this movie?.

Though the story is good,the main defect of this movie is length,it is too long and the screen play it takes its own time to convey,but all these are not a big task if you go with the harmony of the story,it is good piece of work.

Some characters ruined the movie like that pindaris characters and few characters come and go without much importance.

I felt one,the dialogues are more like overblown the characters,i think it is also needed for the story.

Star performance:

It fits to Saif Ali Khan.

There is no doubt in that, because of his excellent acting and magnificent performance as ascetic.

Story line:

The story line of this movie is ,it happenning in 18's times,it is revenge of hero to his own brother who backstabbed his own family because of his loyality to the british officers.

Hero wandered all over as ascetic to find his brother and to reckon his vengeance.

 Once hero finded his brother but he was caught by the men of his brother and tortured to death.

After that how he escaped and how he killed his brother,this is the story line of this story.


Gripping plot with slow pace,watch this only for Saif Ali Khan and Deepak Dobriyal,they will never let down the expectation in this movie.
