“Anjaan”, which released on Friday, has opened in a record number of 1,400 cinemas worldwide, making it the biggest release for the actor in his career. Story begins as Krishna (Suriya) comes to Mumbai in search of his brother Raju Bhai (Suriya) a gangster and a right hand to his close friend Chandru (Vidyut) a don in the Andheri area . Upon searching and meeting his brother’s associates we are brought to a flashback sequence where he comes to know about his brother’s life as a gangster, as a lover, as a friend and also as an enemy to the notorious Don Imran (Manoj Bajpayee). How Krishna finds his brother is answered with some twists and turns in the rest of the film.
The story is simple with revenge as the main plot in the film. That’s it there is nothing else in the film. Surya has done well to his character, and Samatha has shown glamor and acted to her part as well. The rest of the cast and storyline seems to be mix and match of all previous Linguswamy’s films. Stereo typed villains and bland screenplay make the film boring and predictable. Song placements made the film even slower. Manoj Bajpayee looked funny rather than notorious in the film. Cinematography by Santosh Sivan was the only saving grace in the film which was handled maturely and made it worth seeing in theaters. I give the film 3/10
