Ek Ajnabee (2005)

Movie is a remake of the Hollywood movie Man on Fire (2004). Quite an effort to reproduce the movie with quite a different climax.

Trivia

The makers auditioned approximately 70 kids for the role of Anamika before finally zeroing in on Baby Rucha Vaidya. One of the prerequisites for the character was that the child had to know how to swim. However, even though Rucha didn't know how to swim, director Apoorva Lakhia was so impressed that he was adamant on casting her. And so she was given three months before the shooting of the film, during which she actually learned how to swim. See more »

A well-made film..but for the 2nd half excluding the CLIMAX!!!
18 May 2007 | by See all my reviews

well actually before i started watching this movie,i surfed IMDb for user reviews. 6.9 is pretty good i guess and moreover it is a Big-B movie.So why would i miss it?

The premise is good enough..kidnappings.and we have our Big-B or Surya as he is called by the sweet Anamika(the girl in-focus) coming in to action.The first half was very sweet and i enjoyed each and every moment of it,because the interactions between Surya and Anamika were really nicely done.

After the shock incident towards the end of the first-half,i was ready for really great action from our Big-B.Even though Surya carries off his 'revenge' in style,his pace is something which could have been improved.I meant the slow-speed at which he uncovers clues and finds out what is actually happening around him.And moreover,when Big-B is ready to blast the villains with a machine gun(oo mama),the camera man tries something different and in the end spoils the fun of watching Big-B pumping bullets...give me a break please!!!Everything is at the same slow pace in the second half till the climax.People are in for a triple-shock...that was the good part of the 2nd half.Otherwise it's a boring affair to watch the last half of Ek Ajnabee...

Anamika was really sweet.Though i feel the Anamika in the last scene was an idiotic choice(this Anamika is'nt sweet or cute at all). Arjun Rampal was apt in his role and flexed his muscles when needed.

If the second half had been a bit more crisp(excluding the climax) this movie would have certainly gone places.

NOTE:I heard this movie is a rip-off,but that never matters.As Big-B's presence more than makes up for the faults in the movie.Watchable once,certainly.
