is your average Bollywood masala movie which lacks imagination. The film runs on a thin plot on an accidental rivalry between a Mathura ka goonda
and an Agra ka launda
. Mathura ka goonda
is Gajendra Singh (Manoj Bajpayee) whose brother is apparently the Home Minister. So he has a license to do what he wants. Agra ka launda
is Pintoo (Arjun Kapoor) a Kabaddi player par excellence.
Gajendra pressurizes Radhika Mishra (Sonakshi Sinha) to marry her. He sees her at a function and decides he likes her. Harassed after her brother is killed, she tries to run away from Mathura to Delhi when Gajendra stops her. Pintoo too is on his way home after attending a wedding in Mathura. When he sees Gajendar dragging Radhika, he socks him not knowing who he is. All hell breaks loose.
From then on, Pintoo vows to Radhika that he will see her safe off the country to the US where she plans to go.
This is just about the plot. In between you have fight, lots of it, SINGHAM and WANTED style. A one man army, Pintoo goes about decimating his rivals with his bare fists.Also Read: TEVAR Music Review
Until the time Gajendra terrorizes the girl, the film looks decent; after that it spirals downward showcasing just fights, fights and more fights.
The film is excruciatingly long apart from having some inane scenes. Like for example, why does Pintoo not take the help of his father who is a Superintendent of Police in Agra? Strange!
Films like TEVAR did well in the 80s. I guess, the Kapoors tried to reinvent the magic of TEZAAB but went horribly wrong.
