wogma rating: Watch when on TV (?)
quick review:

You kind-of know where the plot is going but you still want to know how you get there. That has value in itself though it doesn't really demand your seat to be on the edge.

Warning: this section has some details that could distort your experience while watching the movie. I strongly recommend reading this only after you have seen the movie or if you have decided not to see it.

Plot Summary

Arjun Kapoor (Arjun Rampal) aka Criminal's messiah is a criminal lawyer who is frustrated with his tag and wants to do the right thing. Will he be able to?

What did not

Note: This section simply lists the things that I did not like in this movie. This is not the overall impression about this movie. Please read the full review here

  • The whole murder-chase in the opening. While it was necessary for the set-up, what was the time/venue stamp for?
  • And did the guy really run from Malad to Versova?
  • Do the newspapers really carry headlines like "messiah of criminals" so openly? Or is that a comment on the judiciary system. Didn't work, nevertheless.
  • Arjun Kapoor's dilemma was a little unconvincing, needed a little more establishment. Maybe some doubts on his face while we see the headlines.
  • Is the accused allowed into the bar council hearing, and is it held immediately?
  • The disguises didn't work at all.
  • How come Udita disappears?
  • Are officers' cabins in crime branches so plush?
  • Titles are wannabe cool.
  • Yellow pages for a citizen's name search? It should have been the white pages or the phone directory. To top it off they are not even looking it up in the yellow pages.


This section lists things that I think are not important to the overall impact of the movie. In most cases, it could be explained away by something like, "we noticed the glitch after the scene was shot and there were schedule/budget issues and thus we could not re-shoot it". I like giving the makers the benefit of doubt, but I am amused nevertheless. Hopefully, they will tickle you too.

  • Sarika Ghatge wearing a beige slip under a pink, deep-necked dress. Looked awful and an obvious tussle between the dress designer and the actor.
  • Is there a Moshe's in Goa's crossword too? Sure that was not the South Mumbai Crossword?
