The story follows Yashvardhan (Jackie Shroff), a real estate developer and his family in Gurgaon known for illegal works, due to Yashvardhan's top crew member Ajay (Arjun Kapoor) who leaves no evidence after a job is done. Rishi Kapoor, who has never donned the cop uniform, will be seen in the police avatar for the first time in the film.
In this cop family versus gangster family tale, Rishi,
Prithviraj and Sikandar Kher will be seen challenging Jackie, his
wife Amrita Singh and son Arjun Kapoor. The police department then
captures Ajay and torture him, while they send out Ajay's
lookalike, Vishal, to Yashvardhan.
Vishal joins the crew and becomes an informer, while Ajay is
being tortured into snitching all of Yashvardhan's business
secrets. Arjun is Aurangzeb - the king, who puts his
throne above kinship. The movie has potential to be a new-age
suspense drama, but what's it stored towards the climax? Watch it

Aurangzeb Movie Review
Aurangzeb boasts of a well-paced story and is a new
take on family rivalry. The movie promises you some genuine
thrills, surprises and some really powerful scenes. But, the
execution somewhere looks quite unsatisfactory and half-baked.
Especially, the second half could have been better and a bit more
A lot depends on Arjun Kapoor in the film, and like
Ishaqzaade, the Kapoor lad does it again. Arjun's menacing
and boisterous look in the film, adds up to his impressive
performance in Aurangzeb.
Jackie Shroff looks a scheming, powerful gangster and excels in
his evil role. Rishi Kapoor, who plays the mastermind policeman for
whom ambition and supremacy comes first and foremost, is the show
stealer in the film.
Prithviraj does complete justice to the role of a calm and
reticent policeman, who rarely loses his balance. Swara Bhaskar
delivers a solid performance, and Amrita Singh is a delight
The music of the film is composed by Amartya Rahut and Vipin
Mishra, lyrics penned by Puneet Sharma, Manoj Kumar Nath and Vipin
Mishra. Aurangzeb has interesting compositions and the
music is well put together, but not an all round soundtrack as it
won't appeal to the masses.
Not to deny, Aurangzeb is quite an engaging movie,
until a certain point of time, after which you feel deceived due to
poor execution. Yet, if you are planning for Aurangazeb
this weekend, it won't be a good idea to keep massive expectations
from the film.
