Storyline

Gurgaon is the most modern boom-town of "India Shining", the new frontier to be conquered by those who understand real estate. This city rose from a small town to a boom town satellite city in just fifteen years. However the law and order is yet to catch up. A family of Policemen - A family of Gangsters - Under the guise of a respected citizen, Yashwardhan (Jackie Shroff) runs a parallel world - a world, where he is the Emperor. To bring down a criminal - the law will have to now think like a criminal. When Vishal (Arjun Kapoor) is planted in Yashwardhan's world in place of Ajay (Arjun Kapoor), the lawmakers (Rishi Kapoor and Prithviraj) roll the dice and a sequence of events unravel - something much more than what Vishal bargained for, as he finds himself in a predicament that puts him to the test. Aurangzeb is all about a world where Kingship knows no Kinship and where there can be only one Emperor. Written by Official Source

Quotes

Arya: This system of collection has been in place for years. The money from this system goes all the way up to the seniors and ministers. The nexus is not going to come to an end with just my Uncle's death. The DCP said that only two powers would survive - the politicians and the corporates. But if a policeman doesn't take bribes from any of them, then he won't fear them either.

The power of choice

Choice and consequence, love and abandonment, wealth and greed. It is amongst those themes, this story of lost and found is narrated.

A son carries some bitterness upon finding out on his father's death that he has a step-brother whom he has to use to infiltrate a wealthy criminal. The later is only of use as he is the identical twin of the criminal's own son. The criminal and his son are unaware of the twin's existence thought to be long dead as is his mother.

In this complex but utterly intriguing story, everyone enters for a reason but comes out with a different perspective. Knowing who to trust or depend upon is blurry; preconceived notions carry a lot of gravity and stand in the way of seeing the truth about others.

There is a web that binds all the characters in this story and untangling it is set to be messy where all involved must face up to the fact that there is a clear choice to be made.

Beautifully narrated, there is a mastery involved in making in this film by keeping the audience in the loop throughout and despite the intricacy of the story as well as the miscellany of characters it never becomes too difficult to follow.

On top of that, add a well chosen cast in great form - especially the lead - and we are in for a top notch Hindi film experience.
