The World Wrestling Federation comes to Bollywood, and the big bad boys of the ring are given a sound thrashing by our very own Akshay Kumar. Apart from that, this movie has only one twist - wafer thin, but a twist anyway. The story has The Wronged Mother, The Dutiful Son, The Evil-Doers and The Path Of Vengeance. Wondering about the twist? Read on.

Meet Gayathri (Rakhee), the typical screen mother, whose husband is killed by Singhal (Amrish Puri) and whose only hope for revenge is her son, Jai (Akshay). As fate would have it, Jai falls in love with Neha (Raveena), who is Singhal's daughter. Unknowingly, Gayathri gives the couple her blessings, and being a woman of her word and for the sake of her son, decides to forget the past. Unusual for a Hindi film, but this is the twist, and from here on it's the same old story.

Singhal refuses to change his ways and Gayathri refuses to reveal the killer to Jai - a pitiful deadlock. This melodrama continues till Gayathri is murdered. This reveals all to Jai and it is time for the grand finale of fisticuffs and rip-offs of Jackie Chan stunts. It is for this particular sequence that the director employed the services of professional wrestlers from the WWF. This is the only highlight of film. Action lovers will enjoy this to the fullest - Akshay fights with not one or two, but five of these massive wrestlers, and the best part is that it is pretty convincing. Jai wins all his fights and avenges his parents' death.

This film bombed at the box office. The reason? A weak script and too many loose ends. The music is tolerable and the performances are limited and stereotyped. Rakhee has played the screen mother so often that it comes naturally to her. Raveena is wasted and Akshay just fights all through his role.

A mediocre movie that can be given a miss.
