Technically Good
8 June 2004 | by See all my reviews

Aan is an action movie where action never stops.Aan tells the story of Mumbai Cops.The irony is that they are handcuffed by corrupt politicians,businessmen who influence police to get their job done.Mumbai is ruled by underworld who work in tandem with politicians and businessmen.All the three of them take one another's help for getting their job done.Thus,all of them escape from law. Some cops like Appa Kadam Nayak(Suneil Shetty) do try their hands to cleanse the city.They meet with little effort because the minute they go little far,they are made to take several steps backwards.Shatrughan Sinha plays a cop who becomes passive to the system.Paresh Rawal is a small time hawaldar who has his own problems eeking out a life with meagre support from his job.However all of them try their level best to do their job awaiting a superior who would "open their hands".

Enters Hari Om Patnaik(Akshay Kumar)who initially does not like his subordinates' ways but bends on knowing the ground reality.The cops handle a political murder and rest of the story tells how the cops get to the criminal and succeed in exposing a corrupt minister and a business tycoon,despite the corruption which permeated from top to bottom.

The film is technically good.There is lot of action.It seems that Madhur Bhandarkar attempted John Woo.The action scenes are well shot.The director makes use of Split screen images to show how underworld mafia use top connections and escape from law.The movies showcases some of the cops' problems.The movie is also inspired from some of the real life incidents.But Madhur's films are like that,a good director.The acting is good.Suniel Shetty is particularly impressive.Akshay Kumar ,Paresh Rawal also do their job well.Irfaan Khan is also good playing an underworld bhai. As for the flaws,there are many many sub-plots.The story goes awry at times and at times it appears that screenwriters go tangential from the original plot,bringing out defects in the society and ills of the system. Inspite of the flaws,the movie is watchable,for its action sequences.The action is very good and I believe it is the only action movie sans romance.Madhur Bhandarkar wanted to combine commercial cinema and his own style of film-making.The effort is not very impressive but still okay.
