Ashok Chakra - Review

The first question that comes to your mind in the first 10 minutes of the film is, for whom this film is made. Who is the target audience? The makers claim the film to be dedicated to the martyrs of the 26/11 carnage but in execution it is nothing but an insult to those who laid their lives on that black day.

The film chronicles Ajmal Kasab (Verma) and his journey from the LeT training camp in Pakistan to his targets in India. He arrives on the Mumbai shores with his nine other accomplices to spread terror on the fateful night of 26th November 2008. Kasab is pitted against Hemant Karkare (Homi Wadia), Tukarum Ombale (Ashok Samarth), Ashok Kamte (Amit Behl), Salaskar (Sudesh Berry) and several other law enforcement officers. The rest of the film is about what happens after Ksab is caught by the valiant Ombale, who lays down his life trying to arrest him.

Immature in every single department, the film tests your patience with bad acting, bad production values, bad editing, bad cinematography and yes bad direction. It is sad that such a film on an important topic is wasted by some undeserving talent who had money at their disposal to attempt such a film. One can only imagine the plight of those who underwent pain in real life, if they get to watch this foolish depiction of the 26/11 incidents.

Rajan Verma, who plays Kasab appears more as a psychopathic killer than a terrorist. The less said about rest of the over acting actors, the better.

Just avoid this one at any cost.
