Zila Ghaziabad Movie Review- In Short: When two gangs turn Ghaziabad into a battlefield, the police decide to rope in a maverick cop to clean up the city…
Zila Ghaziabad Movie Review-Verdict: Had it not been for the star cast, the movie could have been mistaken (quite justifiably so) for a B-grade Bhojpuri fare!
Zila Ghaziabad Movie Review-Story Plot: Fauji (Arshad Warsi) is the bane of Ghaziabad- a short-tempered goon with a penchant for solving every problem with violence. Needless to say, Fauji is used as an enforcer by unscrupulous land sharks and politicians for their own needs.
When Fauji kills the elder brother of Satbir (Vivek Oberoi) following a misunderstanding, the law-abiding Satbir decides to take law into his own hands and seeks vengeance with an insatiable blood lust. When things get out of control and the police get tired of the constant media-bashing over the law and order situation, the top officials decide to rope in Thakur Pritam Singh (Sanjay Dutt), a maverick cop, who doesn’t believe in playing by the rules.
How Pritam manages to demolish the two gangs with a diabolical plan, forms the rest of the story.
Zila Ghaziabad Movie Review-Performances: Sanjay Dutt, with his paunch and balding dome, should really stop playing lead roles. Though he does manage to evoke a few guffaws with a few one-liners, he tries in vain to ape Salman Khan’s Dabangg act, with disastrous results. Vivek Oberoi seems to still carry his Company and Shootout At Lokhandwala hangover and his performance is a poor version of his characters in the aforementioned films. Arshad Warsi does manage to put in an honest effort, but he simply cannot pull off the rustic bad guy act with conviction. The rest of the cast, comprising actors like Paresh Rawal, Ravi Kishan, Minissha Lamba and Ashutosh Rana, seem utterly uninterested.
Zila Ghaziabad Movie Review-Direction: Tacky dialogues, unnecessary item numbers, unintentionally funny action sequences and an overall disregard for the viewer’s mental health-this is what defines Zila Ghaziabad in short. Like mentioned earlier, in the absence of a good star cast, this movie could have been some B-grade Bhojpuri fare.
Zila Ghaziabad Movie Review-Final Word: Just one word…AVOID!
