Here’s how the story unfolds Nawaz plays an underwear seller (Claps! please for the way he sells chaddis is as noteworthy as the spectrum 0f the product he has with him). The man turns extortionist after the owner of his shop fires him for his not so good selling abilities. However what this man has in store can really whack your brains in one single stroke.

As for the performances Nawaz shines here like only he can, Arbaaz Khan gets his moments but beyond a point he starts hamming beyond belief and Amy Jackson is employed here for the purpose that she has been serving in all her her movie so far-a decorative piece. Seema Biswas as Ali’s foster mother gets some noteworthy screen time and Jackie Shroff makes quite a cameo in the end as a local don spring a not-so-pleasant surprise.
