Director: Manoj K Jha
Cast: Jimmy Shergill, Saurabh Shukla, Pavan Malhotra, Mahie Gill, Supriya Pilgaonkar and Nandish Singh
The movie revolves around the tale of two brothers whose life resides on the either sides of the law. It is a drama set in the small town of Thakurganj. The two brothers Nunnu (Jimmy Shergill) and Munnu (Nandish Singh) have very different ideologies in life. Nunnu keeps the law aside and runs by his own choices while Munnu is a law abiding, sincere citizen. After their father’s sudden death, Nunnu takes the responsibility of the entire family on his shoulders and soon becomes a famous goon called Bhaiya ji of Thakurganj. Nunnu, now known as Bhaiya ji and his wife Sharbati (Mahie Gill) are successfully exploiting everyone. But as every Bollywood gangster-story’s plot, there comes a twist in the story when the violence happening all over the town starts affecting their personal lives. The solution here is to either abide by law or take the law into their own hands.
Performances by these actors is not a ‘treat to our eyes’ but it at least gives the dull and rather, dragged script, a reason to stand into the deep waters. Jimmy Shergill being an upright actor, gave his best to his character. Supriya Pilgaonkar as their mother, has done her part well. A wise guy called Baba Bhandari, played by Saurabh Shukla, depicts a rather powerful character, who decides everyone’s fate in Thakurganj. Sharbati played by Mahie Gill, Jimmy’s wife, comes off as a dominating and a shrewd woman. Her performance in the film is quite convincing. Nandish Singh pulled off a good show but his overall look was a bit too much.
The direction by Manoj K Jha wasn’t appealing and the film was dragged too much. Better music should have been included in the film to add an element of interest. The plot lacked the effectiveness and failed to grasp the audience towards itself.
Cinespeaks verdict: This movie can easily be skipped. Nothing in the film makes you want to sit through out.
Cinespeaks give 2 stars.
