It has now been a decade since we witnessed a flick with a twin role formula in it. Atul Sabharwal, known for some renowned staid TV series Powder and a taut thriller “My wife’s Murder” has brought in the Masala factor into his directorial venture Aurangzeb. Ajay (Arjun Kapoor) is the most cunning employee of the real estate developer Yashvardhan (Jackie Shroff) in Delhi who under the disguise of his property empire runs a crime world.
Well-versed with Yash’s unethical activities, senior inspector Ravikanth (Rishi Kapoor) alongwith his team including Arya (Prithviraj Sukamaran) and Dev (Sikender Kher) kidnaps Ajay and infiltrates his lookalike Vishal (Arjun Kapoor) to Yash’s empire to know all the secrets triggering black money.
But in the interim, Vishal and Ajay are left stunned when they learn that they are twin brothers who were parted in their teenage days, knowing this that police is taking their undue advantage. So, will brothers unite or will they be dominated by the unwise tactics of the cops? That’s how the story deals further.
Atul has picked up the old spices and served in into the new recipe which might not be that delicious. Surely the idea hit our wits for a while but could not convince.
The execution over here is half baked. You tend to hold your seat till the interim with some thrills and surprises. This serves the purpose to some extent, but in the second innings it goes predictable and the dialogues go wacky.
Atul tried to pay a tribute to the legendary Javed-Salim duo with his punch lines. Some dialogues sound hard-hitting and have impact, but a few go stale.
Rishi Kapoor loves to experiment and is ubiquitous in every second flick. Here the cop’s role suits him. He is the person in command and his dialogue delivery looks dominant.
The South Indian star Prithviraj, who previously failed in his debut flick Aiyaa, finds some earth with his performance.
Debutant Sashaa Agha playing Arjun’s lover interest is impressive when she talks and flaunts.
Jackie Shroff as a cunning mafia brings back his days. His body language has an impressive aura and is compelling which is seen in the flick.
Amrita Singh, witnessed on screen after a long time does a good job.
Lastly, the Ishaqzaade actor Arjun Kapoor delivers a good act in a beam and boisterous look. He delivers his dialogues with the same finesse as he carried in his debut flick.
Music by Amartya Rahut and Vipin Mishra is semi-perky. You would love the soulful Jigar-Fikra track while Barbadiyaan is energetic. The background score accompanies the scenes.
Niraj Voralia’s editing could have been better.
Finally, Aurangzeb is not a bad attempt by the director. You will be tempted by the performances but would just be thwarted by the final outcome.
