Kaante

It'd have been one of the perfect Hindi films to come out of Bollwood in the last few years, had it been an original. For now, it'd have to satisy with the honor of being one of the best alternative remakes of The Reservoir Dogs.

The camera, the script, the choice of actors and the action itself were pretty neat. It did not fall in to the formulaic rut of Hindi movies, except at one place where they chuck the Muslim arms dealer down from the roof, after delivering some piece of nationalistic rhetoric with the word Hindustan repeated over and over again. The music score by Anand Raj Anand keeps in pace with the film and it is good to know that there is audience for this kind of movies.
