Aankhen...

Movie Review: Aankhen
Starring: Amitabh Bachchan, Sushmita Sen, Akshay Kumar, Arjun Rampal, Bipasha Basu, Paresh Rawal
Director: Gaurang Doshi

Producer: Vipul Shah
      
     

Aankhen deals with a bank robbery by three blind men. The mastermind behind this being: Vijay Singh

Rajput (Amitabh Bachchan), who is a bank manager and has been sacked out of the bank for beating the cashier black and blue...This he does because he sees the cashier cheating an old lady.
 
Frustrated with the management and over his good work and loyalty to the bank for the last so many years, he decides to take revenge by robbing the bank of its cash reservoirs.

He starts with his mission by hiring Neha Srivastava (Sushmita Sen) who is a blind school teacher. He kidnaps her brother Rahul and forces her to help him rob the bank. He also hires three other blind men,

Vishwas Prajapati (Akshay Kumar), Arjun (Arjun Rampal) and Illiyas (Paresh Rawal). He makes Neha trains them while he monitors like a referee. Thereafter they embark upon their mission. The training and what happens after that is something to be watched in this film.
 
Aankhen happens to be a remake of the Gujarati play "Andhalo Paato". It is very different from the typical Hindi film till date and is an experiment of sorts. There is hardly any romance or songs which

makes the story very intense and uncomfortable for the set of audience who watch a movie for the sake of

romance or songs. Aankhen happens to be Vipul Shah's first directed film and one has to agree that he has indeed done a very good job and has extracted first rate performances of the principal cast. Ashok Mehta's cinematography is excellent and succeeds to impress the mass to a very large extent. The special effects in the narrative are brilliantly executed.

Music has been a major attraction for most to this film. The credit

goes to Aadesh Shrivastava, Jatin-Lalit and Nitin Raikwar. All the three songs are well tuned and

appropriately placed. "Gustakhiyaan" is undoubtedly the best in terms of music as well as choreography. The other two "Phatela Jeb" and "Halka halka" will also appeal to many. The background music by Aadesh Shrivastava is brilliant and choreography of the title track does deserve special mention.
 
Performance-wise, Amitabh Bachchan is the best and has given one of the best performances in his career. He is just amazing in

everything he does in this film. This is his second film in negative role besides AKS. Akshay Kumar too, is good as usual and appears confident. Unfortunately Arjun Rampal isn't that good. He does try his best but

needs to improve a lot. Paresh Rawal will be surely appreciated. If not for him, the movie would have been too intense and boring. Sushmita Sen is too good and her scenes with Amitabh are well executed. Others in supporting cast are OK. Bipasha Basu is good and has a special appearance in this film being paired up with Akshay for the second time. Sushmita is paired opposite Arjun Rampal.
