Apparently, the only vigilante action thriller film that will make you laugh!
Satyameva Jayate and the truth is, recreated track “Dilbar” from the 1999 film Sirf Tum is the only best thing about this film.
It was Aamir’s show that did justice to the title of Satyameva Jayate, there is no content here and so even such a meaningful title seems wasted.
There is no comedy week coming out of Bollywood this weekend, so you might as well see this one for some laughter.

Poorly written and amateurishly treated
Read Detail Review
Written and directed by Milap Zaveri, the film couldn’t and wouldn’t unburden the film maker of the baggage of Mastizaade. We miss the writer who once wrote some great scripts like Shootout at Wadala and Kaante.
Alekh (Story) – Patkatha (Screenplay)
The story is not just simple, but very run off the mill. And to add to it, is the substandard treatment that makes this vigilante tale extremely funny.
Making a film on common-man-turned-vigilante doesn’t need masala, take ‘A Wednesday’ for example, it must be believable. Such a film needs connect, not commercial angle.
Even if a commercial angle is added, then at least the content should be relatable. Aiming for whistles and claps at very masala dialogue in the film, the story had one basic element missing, the story itself. There is no story or back story, the film doesn’t even have an impactful beginning or ending.
And when the writing is poor, it impacts the actors as well. Well, few dialogues were actually seeti-maar and one we took home is ‘kuch log kamzori hote hain, zarurat nahi’.
John Abraham is an actor we like, is the vigilante we need, but we are going to close our eyes and believe that he never did this movie.
Manoj Bajpayee, the script totally failed such a brilliant like him. We genuinely feel bad.
As for Aisha Sharma’s debut, no judgments because such an ill-written role will ruin anybody’s act.
Geet Sangeet (Music)
Tanish Bhagchi’s Dilbar is an audio-visual treat. Combine it with Nora Fatehi’s super-hot aura, that probably made the best thing in the entire film.
Nirnay (FilmyCurry Verdict)
If you are John Abrahma or Manoj Bajpayee fan, please skip this, you’ll be very disappointed.
