    In India films our top Bollywood hunks not only have to flaunt their bodies and take part in high voltage action but also have to shake a leg in tandem with a thumping song in the background. In this context our films are unique since we can never imagine a Tom Cruise or a Vin Diesel to do this. They make either action films (Mission Impossible, Fast and furious etc) or musical ( LA LA land etc ). We in Bollywood have the unique talent of mixing both genres, producing an unholy mix and making millions through the patronage of our huge population of 1300 million people.
    This film was considered important enough by YRF boss Aditya Chopra, since he with the film director Siddharth Anand, has roped in two other established film directors like Shridhar Raghavan and Abbas Tyrewala to collectively do the story/screenplay/ dialogues . The aim was apparently to create an interesting ,fast moving, thrilling action film with full on entertainment. They have succeeded no doubt.
    The film is about 2 special agents Hrithik and Tiger who are in the thick of action to save their motherland from sinister outside forces out to carry out destruction. Intertwined in this narrative are two women one Soni Razdan as Tiger's suffering mother and two Vaani Kapoor as the helpless young woman bringing up her little girl child all by herself. There is plenty of action and fights and luckily the laws of physics have been respected in all of them. A long sequence in the aeroplane is well done. Most of the special effects are jaw dropping. This film has splendid choreography of not only the fight scenes but also of the dance sequences.
    In the top roles both Hrithik and Tiger have done well in showing their well toned bodies , fighting, dancing and acting in that order. That in any case was expected of them from the film and they have not disappointed both the director and audience. Vaani Kapoor is required to look sexy and vulnerable and she has done both roles well. One nicely shot in a bikini with her toned figure has both Hrithik drooling in the film and no doubt all hot blooded males in the audience would have been drooling too. Ashutosh Rana impresses in a supporting role.
    Direction work comprises primarily of planning and execution of action scenes and this has been done superbly. There are some well executed chases and fights. Lovers of action films , Hrithik fans and Tiger fans (which together forms a sizable portion of audiences) are going to love this film.
