Here's an action film that takes itself seriously--at least..... The fights ,the punches , the shootings , the broken bones--all seem real..... Unlike Dabangg and Singham , where there is no seriousness to the dhishum dhishum , and the film seems to be mocking itself , and also the audience , this film is a no holds barred blood and revenge story. And the action happens at an electric , breathless pace.... But when the action is not happening , there are moments of romance too..... .....And those are provided by Genelia D'souza , who plays a bold and mod ' forward ' city girl , but without any vulgarity ; instead displays a joie de vivre and charm that instantly makes her performance endearing..... The action is provided by the confrontation between two handsome bodybuilders--John Abraham and Vidyut Jammwal ; John is the cop from NCP ( no , not Sharad Pawar's Nationalist Congress party , but Narcotics control police ) , and Vidyut is the drug smuggler . Both have their motives for revenge on each other , but only one is bound to survive...... those are the rules of the game...... While John is bound by his duty and his passion for his job , Vidyut is bound by his greed to control the narcotics business alone--and neither is willing to back down...... ....Which leads to some real shootings , killings , murders and even rape..... As Vidyut crosses all limits , breaking the old unwritten laws by which policemen and criminals dont target each others families , both begin to lose their close relations and friends to the mayhem..... .....Making it a fight to the finish...... The photography is excellent and the songs are hummable , and John is looking all brawn and muscle . However ,unlike Dabangg and Singham , it does not look like a film made for the masses ; John looks too westernised , and so does Genelia , and so does the pace , rhythm and look of the film.... But the classes wont mind it at all..... Verdict--okay .
