Zila Ghaziabad SYNOPSIS

'For as long as there are those out there who feel picked on, weaker than their brethren, and held in disgust for that weakness, there will be a handful of people who overcome it and rise from the ashes. A true underdog is someone who comes from the areas we come from, the streets we grew up on and the schools we attended, often full of weaker personality characteristics and lacking the skills of their more talented competition but the one thing they always have, is the tenacity to become better'.
Whenever one hears the word CRIME, Uttar Pradesh comes to our mind automatically.
1986- Western Uttar Pradesh, the crime rate had shot through the roof and Gang-wars had taken precedence over politics. Each political party was known to be strong or weak, vis-a-vis the gangs who were supporting them. These Gang-wars rose from underworld to politics, destroying not just individuals involved, but also innocent family members and general public, who came in their circumference..One such rising was in Zila Ghaziabad where our film is based.

Zila Ghastly Bad!!

By MovieTalkies.com, 22 February 2013 1 / 5

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!

The Punch Goes Missing

By Reflections, MovieTalkies.com, 29 January 2013 2.5 / 5

One expects a lot from the upcoming Bollywood action- thriller biopic, Zila Ghaziabad which is based on gangs and their many wars. The movie features Sanjay Dutt and Arshad Warsi along with Vivek Oberoi in the lead roles. Music of the movie is composed by Amjad-Nadeem with Bappa Lahiri chipping in as well. The album contains five tracks including two item numbers.
The album begins with loud dhol that compliments Ye Hai Zila Ghaziabad which is heard in the energetic vocals of Sukhwinder Singh. This one is an exciting number with desi musical arrangements that compliment the film’s genre. This composition aptly depicts the sense of rejoice with the feeling of happiness and delight. To add to this, back up vocals by Amjad and Nadeem lend powerful support to Sukhwinder’s strong voice. Use of words such as Killi, Kancha & Tamancha by lyricist Shabbir Ahmed would certainly be able to connect with the local masses.
Ranjha Jogi is a soft duet track with Sonu Nigam and Shreya Ghoshal sharing the mike. This one is a soft melodious number with light musical arrangements that will remind you of the musical era of the 90s. Overall the track turns out to be a decent outing as lyrics from Shabbir are quite simple, easy and effortless.
The album is carried forward with an item number Baap Ka Maal which is Mamta Sharma’s forte. Amjad-Nadeem have experimented well with the vocals of Mika Singh and Sukhwinder who surely seem to be having a lot of fun while pairing up with Mamta on this one. The number also has a Rock Again version where Mika tries out his luck along with relatively new entrant Anupama Raag (heard before in Shalu Ke Thumke (Bin Bulaye Baraati)).
Tu Hai Rab Mera begins in the soft, pleasant and soothing vocals of Mohit Chauhan and Tulsi Kumar. This one is a melodious outing on low notes that comes with a good classical charm. Arrangements used by the composer duo are smooth that blend very well with nice strings of ‘sitar’. Lyrics penned by Shabbir are interesting and catchy that further infuses life in the track.
The album concludes with another item song Chamiya No. 1 in the vocals of Sunidhi Chauhan, the queen of item songs. This one is a below average number that may hardly leave an impact on the listeners. Reason being that the arrangements used by the guest composer Bappa Lahiri do not influence much; hence resulting in a dissatisfying outing.
Overall, soundtrack of Zila Gaziabad is average with tracks Yeh Hai Zila Ghaziabad and Tu Hai Rab Mera having potential to do well with Baap Ka Maal working with the gentry. However the punch that one expected from the music of a movie with genre like this isn’t really felt.

Zila Ghaziabad TRIVIA

Vivek Oberoi refused to light up a cigarette for his film Zilla Ghaziabad as he did not want to promote smoking in any way. Since Vivek was playing the role of a gangster and smoking was an integral part of the film, the maker convinced him to light up a cigarette after accepting Vivek's suggestion of playing an anti-smoking clip before the start of the film.
