Capsule Review: Never before has a Hindi film on crime and punishment achieved such an extraordinary synthesis of violence and poetry—an underworld film of such exceptional resonances that takes us deep into the heart and mind of organized crime. The film achieves a sense of completeness of no other film by Ram Gopal Varma. Malik (Ajay Devgan) is the silently seething gangster who immediately takes on the volatile street hoodlum Chandu (Vivek Oberoi) under his wings. The sound design, the lighting of faces and frame, the exotic locations (which are used not as tantalizing visuals but authentic characters), Sandeep Chowta’s extraordinarily expressive and assertive background music and above all, debutant cinematographer Hemant Chaturvedi’s skills behind the camera come together to lend a luminous epic quality to the main text and subtle subtexts which run across this tactile tale of terrible tensions
