Whoopie, finally i got to watch Johnny Gaddaar this weekend. Its for sure among the best movies to come out this year. An absolute must watch. This movie is up there along with Anurag Kashyap’s Black Friday as one of the best. A crime caper where a gang of 5 plan to buy out drugs confiscated by a corrupt cop. And, then everything goes horribly wrong as one of the insider decides to betray the gang and decamp with the money. As the body count starts to pile up, the movie races to an exciting climax.
Scene stealers? Zakir Hussain, Vinay Pathak, Govind Namdeo and a special mention for Neil Nitin Mukesh. Am sure we are gonna see quite a lot of this guy in the future. Btw, its an awesome movie to make a debut in the industry. Special mention to the ‘He-Man’ Dharmendra. As he says in the movie…
“Its not the age, its the mileage”
Whoops. That dialogue is in itself the price of admission. Special mention to the director of the movie Shriram Raghavan. After ‘Ek Hasina Thi‘, he’s pulled off another fantabulous movie. The movie is a terrific homage to the crime capers, Vijay Anand used to churn out in the 60s and 70s.
My rating **** (4 stars of 5)
