This foolhardy attempt to cast another stone on the emergency era has a Maharani from Rajashthan, Geetanjali (Illeana Dcruz), seeking vengeance against an Emergency era politician-womanizer Sanjeev (you know who) played by Priyanshu Chatterjee, for appropriating her hereditary wealth.

She enrols her paramours into the act–old faithful, bodyguard Bhawani Singh(Ajay Devgn) and new-found love, decorated Army Commander Sehar Singh (Vidyut Jamwal) are enlisted with the task of stealing back the booty with the able help from Guruji (Sanjay Mishra) and Sanjana (Esha Gupta).

The incumbent narrative designed by Milan Luthria is dead-weight, inept, plagued with loop-holes and extremely low on fuel. Stupid dialogues, silly planning that even a school-kid might find offensive to his intelligence make this a ludicrous heist attempt that has really no booty to show for it at the end of it all.

The Emergency gets bandied about as though it was a game played by stereotypical heroes and villains. The heist team assembled here is so ridiculous that no one would believe they are capable of anything other than strutting their peculiar brand of stuck-up machismo on screen.

Milan Luthria’s idea of Emergency is everyone in ‘khadi’ filling up jails while the hero and his henchmen go about doing as they please, jumping in and out of prison with no one to stop them. There’s little logic and even less sense in this hokey misadventure.

You certainly wouldn’t want to spend your hard-earned money on this one – not even for the delectable Sunny Leone dance that heralds serial kisser Emraan Hashmi aka Dalia’s entry into this curelessly pickled game of thorns!
