Review : Contemporary India. A majestic fort. A royal dynasty
that no longer rules. A king without a kingdom.
Yet Eklavya (Amitabh Bachchan), their royal guard, lives in a time
warp. He lives only to protect the fort, the dynasty and the king.
For nine generations Eklavya's family has protected Devigarh, a
centuries old citadel in Rajasthan. His marksmanships are stuff of
legends. His unflinching loyalty inspires ballads. Eklavya has spent
his entire life serving the royals and closely guarding their
secrets but now he's getting old and increasingly blind.
Unable to cope with the suffocating customs of his land, the heir,
Prince Harshwardhan (Saif Ali Khan), has stayed away in London. But
the sudden demise of the queen, Rani Suhasinidevi (Sharmila Tagore),
forces the Prince back to the kingdom he had left behind.
The Prince's return brings a rush of joy into the moribund fort. His
mentally challenged twin sister, Princes Nandini (Raima Sen) and his
childhood love Rajjo (Vidya Balan) are delighted to see him. But the
joy of reunion is short-lived.
There is unrest in the kingdom: Farmers are being stripped of their
lands. The king, Rana Jayawardhan (Boman Irani), influenced by his
brother, Rana Jyotiwardhan (Jackie Shroff), supports the atrocities
being forced upon the helpless peasants. The king receives a death
threat over the phone. An irreverent police officer, Pannalal Chohar
(Sanjay Dutt), is called into investigate. But he might be too late.
The fragile peace of the land is suddenly shattered by a barrage of
bullets. And amidst the mayhem, the safety guarded secrets of the
fort are unveiled.
What follows is a contemporary, edge-of-the-seat dramatic action
thriller with a stellar ensemble cast - Amitabh Bachchan, Sanjay
Dutt, Saif Ali Khan, Vidya Balan, Boman Irani, Jackie Shroff, Jimmy
Shergil, Raima Sen and Sharmila Tagore. The film marks the return of
Vidhu Vinod Chopra who directs after a hiatus of seven years.
