Director: Nishikant Kamat
Cast: John Abraham, Shruti Haasan, Diya Chalwad, Nathalia Kaur, Nishikant Kamat, Teddy Maurya
One man against all the drug mafias, organ traders and local gangsters of Goa. Kabir Ahlawat (John Abraham) is a highly trained merciless badass assassin who runs a pawn shop; Nayomi (Diya Chalwad) is an adorable kid with whom Kabir shares a special bond and her mother Anna (Nathalia Kaur) who is a drug addict club dancer and the two sinister brothers Kevin (Nishikant Kamat) and Luke Ferreira (Teddy Maurya) and Goa is the new Mexico, when Nayomi gets abducted on account of her mother’s mess up with the drug mafias, hell breaks loose and suddenly our hero turns into a killing machine and for the rest of the movie he is slicing and stabbing and making holes in the villains. Produced by and starring John Abraham, this movie has no climax, no script or even a story line, but surely it has some brilliantly choreographed and finely executed action sequences, but when compared to the Korean movie ‘The Man from Nowhere’, on which it is based, it falls flat on its face.
John has previously played similar role of silent vengeful hero in Force and Madras Cafe and performance-wise, this time as well he is honest with the character of Kabir Ahlawat and is amazing in the action scenes. Shruti Haasan has a guest appearance as Kabir’s wife Rukshida. Nishikant Kamat is superb as a villain and Diya Chalwad is flamboyant and impresses the audience. The supporting roles play their respective parts well. The music was also not bad.
This movie is a delight for action lovers but a trauma if you’re watching it for a sensible story and if you don’t like senseless violence.
