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.

Enjoyable.
17 May 2013 | by gbdtab-4See all my reviews

There are many gangster movies lately. This new addition is more engaging than some others I have seen. The lead characters are well written and the story has a decent plot with not many loopholes. The movie starts slow but picks up pace very quickly. However, in this movie, like many others, the good guys do not die even when the entire gang is shooting at them. This Bollywood touch gets unintentionally comical. But overall, the movie was enjoyable.

The backdrop of Gurgaon real estate is new. I have wondered when will someone come up with a story around the real estate boom that Gurgaon has seen.

Arjun Kapoor acted well in both his roles. Prithviraj was intense. Rishi Kapoor had the Haryanvi touch in his dialogs in the first half, in the second half it was lost (weird). Jackie Shroff was mellow and didn't look like the emperor that he was supposed to portray. He looked like a sad old man.. May be this was the intent. Sasha Aagha had nothing much to do in the film. Why was she there again? Wish there was more of Deepti Naval, her role seems to have been chopped.
