Bhatt movies have that same signature tune and similar story-lines (non-existent). MR X is no different. He too is non-existent.


He was Raghu (Emraan Hashmi) for a few reels until he ran into bad men who tried to knock him off after they got him to knock off the Chief Minister. He was saved by the idol of a deity in his pocket given to him by someone who he helped get a job as a computer hacker in the Anti-Terrorist Department. Incidentally, Raghu was the best officer in that department.

His girlfriend, who he was to marry the next day, Milli (Amyra Dastur) also works with him in the same squad. Both apparently are good officers. She comes to work in cocktail dresses and he in leather jackets.

Anyway, coming back to the plot, Raghu escapes the bid on his life by drinking a chemical which has not yet been tried even on rats. He has no choice, either way he is a dead duck. He drinks and survives. He becomes Mr X. He cannot be seen most of the times. Half invisible, you see.

But the sad part is when he meets Milli again, instead of telling her the truth as to what happened to him, he goes about in circles, giving her just half clues. Naturally, she gets confused and is pissed off with him.

So she vows to bring him to book, hook or by crook! She has a dad who she conveniently goes to for help towards the end of the film. Who or what her dad was, no one knows. I do hope the writer had a clue.

To cut the long story short, Mr X manages to clean up the mess he was put into in the first place and all is well that ends well. He gets into the shower as well with Milli for the last shot.

Emraan gets his mandatory dose of smooches. In one scene, Amyra just jumps for his lips at the sound of ''action''; like you see runners getting off the block at the sound of the gun.

One should not be mistaken for Arunodhay Singh's act of the bad cop as an extension of his role from MAIN TERA HERO. Same to same; Ditto!

If you are an Emraan Hashmi fan, then this is for you. If not, go to COURT!

Pun intended!
