Johnny Gaddaar Review
Sriram Raghavan returns with another thriller where you know who’s the gaddaar (Traitor) and the movie is about finding out whether his secret will be discovered or will he get away with it.
Neil Mukesh makes a debut where he makes a huge impression as the fast thinking traitor. Dharmendra, Vinay Pathak also shine.
The music is amazing and adds to the quality of the movie overall.
If you’re in the mood to watch a thriller of a movie I would surely recommend Johnny Gaddaar.
The film is about two friends, Imaad Shah and Shreyas Talpade and their quest for lust and love along with other things in a Delhi college.
Shreyas Talpade, as Sanjay Mishra is the student leader who has his principles and middle class values intact, however he’s not above to using muscle power to get his rivals out of the way to ensure he gets the right start to his political career. He falls in love with a wannabe model Prerna (played by Nikita Anand) and then how he reacts to the class and value differences between them is amazing to watch, with Shreyas emoting exceptionally well.
Imaad Shah, as Apurv, the laidback son of high class parents who are divorced, is convinced that love is a four-letter word and passes his time moving between the prostitute played by Smriti Mishra and the schoolgirl Ishitta Sharma.
Imaad acts really well too. With his eyes saying a lot, he avoids playing a stereotypical spoilt kid looking for lust, though that’s what he is :-)
Superstar blogger and progressive political activist Markos Moulitsas Zuniga (daily Kos) on Thursday urged his netroots compatriots in Michigan to vote for Mitt Romney next Tuesday.
