    Verdict - A film like this deserved the RGV of Satya not the RGV we know now. This could have been his fight back film. Alas!

    The Attacks of 26/11Watch trailerRelease date : March 01, 2013

    First the good news! The camera angles are not going as berserk as RGV's previous films. His direction is calmer and he is less restless this time around. But, the background music is still ear shattering and the casting is all wrong. This film required a good casting director.

    When you are recreating an event as recent as the attacks of 26/11 the least a director can do is get the right set of actors to make the film look believable. RGV fails big time on this count. Though, Nana Patekar performs to the best of his ability. It almost looked like he is in a separate film of his own.

    The film focuses on the attacks on CST, Taj, Leopold Cafxe9 and Cama hospital and is also based on Kasab's confession. Told from the point of view of Nana Patekar it is looking at the events from that perspective.

    RGV focuses so much on stylizing and crafting the scenes that the film comes across devoid of any emotion of what we all felt while it was happening.

    Word of mouth - A film like this deserved the RGV of Satya not the RGV we know now. This could have been his fight back film. Alas!
