James is a MASALA movie with mardhad!

Bollywood is churning out movies as usual believing that old wine can still be sold in new bottles…and yes! it works. Just like the political parties who always somehow manage to come back to power no matter how incompetent they are!

Take any current good, hit action movie from bollywood, I have always felt one of these. -

Involving family drama….the lady love’s dumbness…..hero’s hands being tied due to circumstances….dragging the story as I slouch in my seat waiting for some piece of action!!!

But this movie comes as a raw exhibition of fighting and blood shed..I agree there is nothing great or novel about this movie..but then its been a while since I saw a hero in bollywood packing punches and kicks that gave my blood some rush! I went to see this movie with a close friend of mine….we both wanted to see someone just kick-ass crude action… guns, no gizmos…bus pure mardhad!!!! Add the background score, which strikes the correct chord!

And yes, this movie gives you lots of it. The hero has done justice with the action…but he needs to open his mouth a bit more and add a little more punch when a speaks! Wish him good luck!

James (Mohit Ahlawat)…justifying his entry by beating up bunch a baaaaad fellas in the train! (nice work with some black n white sequences). In mumbai he meets his old time friend who gets him a job of a bouncer! He loses his job without a fizz while attempting to save the girl..who later falls for him!

The bad guys in the movie are impressive….though once James starts….they run for cover…such is the script.

Shanti Narayan [Zakir Hussain] a politician with obvious nexus with crime world….in fact he is the crime lord! His psycho brother Radhe…(Shereveer Vakil) who enjoys unlimited and free power…much to the envy of indian farmers! He justifies his role.

So, now bad guys start chasing james and the girl after he lustily thrashed their goons. The first half of the movie gives you pretty fast moving story…but just then Rajpal Yadav enters and the movie almost comes to a hault. After some light moments…..James is nabbed and tied to a chair! Ironically, the priority of Radhe changes from butchering James (that’s why he was being chased) to a rape attempt at Nisha.

Sadly enough, Nisha commits suicide, The last of the mohicans way . James swears revenge and it was at this instant that I went outside the theatre to throw the remaining amount of logic in my head! I as knew that the savagery will begin soon!!

Little disappointed with the last sequence, which has a samurai being misused! By this time I had come to believe that James is invincible. And hence, with a few immature stunts by poor Radhe…James takes him down good!

So, just don’t use your grey cells while you watch it and preferably go with some hardcore action loving friend and you will love it!!

Watch it …live it till the movie ends and just forget it!
