Ajay Devgan, Bipasa Basu English SubtitleDolby Digital 5.1 Channel/ 16X9 Anamorphic Widescreen /. Released by Venus.
The story written by Suparn Verma is largely inspired by the real-life 1999 Flight IC-814 hijack and since of late we have had a quite a few films against the backdrop of terrorism and Kashmir, Zameen gives you a feeling of dИjЮ vu. A leader of a terrorist outfit Zaheer Khan (Mukesh Tiwari) arrested by the Indian army has to be traded with the lives of the passengers of an Indian Airways flight grounded in Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir. Colonel Ranjit Singh Ranawat (Ajay Devgan is fast replacing the Punjab da puttar Sunny Deol in the 'Mera Bharat Mahan' dialogue department) joins hands with ACP Jai (Abhishek Bachchan), who heads the anti-terrorism squad in the rescue mission of the hijacked plane. Then there are the usual clichИs - a mole in the Indian army, five young Pakistani terrorists coming to Mumbai for the mission aided by an Indian professor, a garage owner and the likes.
Also the thing about Jai's past which haunts him. An ex-military officer, Jai had committed a mistake which cost nine lives for which his then chief Ranvir had demanded his resignation. Jai had then joined the police force to erase that blot on his character. After some superbly shot car and helicopter chases and some splendid action scenes - Ajay Devgan seems to have largely inspired Abhishek in those - Zahir Khan is killed with the terrorists in Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir while the Indian army commandoes rescue the passengers.
