    It is the age of demonizing the Indian people by painting the worst stereotype about them . The BBC has already made a documentary hinting that the typical Indian male is a potential rapist . But why blame the BBC ?? There are plenty in the Indian media and film industry ready to co operate in creating the worst image of India . They have all discovered that common Indian people are too mild to protest against the act of painting their society as barbaric , or they are simply don't care...

    Only those who ape the west ( like Anushka and her husband in this movie ) are good enough to be above this barbarism , while those who lead traditional Indian lives are nothing but monsters....
    And since most Indians still stick to the traditional modes of life rather than be westernized , therefore any movie painting India in it's 'true' colours has to show most Indians as savages....
    Can you blame Bollywood for cashing in on this new trend in town ?? Can you really ?? Naah....

    So the moment you step outside the big city Delhi ( just like Anushka and her husband Neil Bhoopalam do ) with all it's westernization , you step into barbaro-savage land....
    It is land of honour killings of those couples who dare to fall in love , of savage beatings of young women with all the blood and gore....a land of brothers killing sisters without mercy , where even the police are in cahoots with the barbarians and elder women too relentlessly co operate with the upholders of barbarism....those women who dare to go out of their homes and use public toilets are taunted as prostitutes ( the word is written on the doors of women's toilets ) , and in the whole barbaric countryside no person is okay enough to answer properly if road directions are asked to him---such questions are answered back by rude taunts....

    So as Anushka and Neil step out of their home and city to drive on National highway 10 , they step into another world....
    ....And hey presto , they promptly tread onto the harsh toes of those who are carrying out a honour killing....
    As Neil tries to stop it , he gets involved in the mess much to Anushka's distress and against her opposition to the involvement....
    His confidence increased by his possession of a gun he has acquired to protect Anushka from goons ( they are ever present In India you know , as the opening scene where Anushka's car is attacked by mobsters shows ) , Neil tracks the people who are carrying out the honour killing to their lair....
    But he has bitten off more than he can chew , as the barbaro-savages are more barbaric and savage than he can even imagine....
    A huge fight erupts between Anushka and her husband and the barbaro-savages....and Anushka and Neil are left fending for their bare lives....

    So can the good westernized people who don't even know their own caste ( like Anushka ) survive their encounter with the barbaro-savages who kill anyone who dares to trifle with the ancient codes of caste and tradition ??
    Watch the movie for the answers.....

    The movie is real edge of the seat stuff , and is filled with thrilling moments of genuine action and real violence . It's a clear cut adults film due to the rough language and bloodshed . Acting by everyone is good , but especially by Anushka who shows a range of emotions from fear to dispair to anger....
    Darshan Kumar is good as the villain , and Neil Bhoopalam is decent too .
    Ultimately it is upto Anushka to show that hell hath no fury like a woman who smokes ( like she does in the movie ) , or rather hell hath no fury like a woman scorned....and believe me , the movie is replete with moments where women are scorned by men---all Indian males are like that only ( don't mind it !! I mean the Indian male does not mind being demonized this way and so the media is going to continue stereotyping him as such )....

    There are only two songs and the music is appropriate for the situation . The enemies of the nation will applaud this well crafted effort to make the nation appear far worse than what it actually is....

    Verdict---Good .
    Three and a half stars .
