ANNARTH is a film with vibrant action based on gangwars.
Sameer (Gautam Rode) returns to his 'basti' after a long gap of ten years. His childhood friend Jimmy (Sunil Shetty) is surprised to see him.
Jimmy requests his elder brother Raghav (Ashutosh Rana), who is working for an underworld don Dayal (Tinnu Anand), to include Sameer in their gang. Sameer is inducted, after being thoroughly checked by Iqbal Danger (Sanjay Dutt).
Bandya’s (cricketer Vinod Kambli) death gives the turn to the film. He gets killed in a fit of rage, Jimmy avenges his death by killing a rival gangster without knowing the fact that Jimmy's brother Raghav had killed Bandya.
What happens next? The answer is the rest of the story.
Annarth is a mix up of various films based on gang war. With its story is quite old, it does not promise anything new. However, the director, who is known for stunning action provides the audience with some extra ordinary action on screen. This is the foremost plus point of the otherwise usual film.
Despite the fact that the screenplay lacks novelty, a few scenes do impress. Ashutosh Rana's portions in the initial reels and the one when Tinnu Anand tries to bring about a truce between two warring groups are some of the distinctive scenes. Sunil Shetty’s death before climax is another scene worth mentioning.
Director Ravi Dewan’s skillfully executed action scenes elevate the film to some extent but he is not supported by a well-written script and hence the film fails to hold the grip of the audience. Anand Raaj Ananad's music disappoints. Cinematography is okay.
Sunil Shetty stands out with a convincing performance. Sanjay Dutt does justice to his role and nothing more than that. Preeti Jhangiani’s performance is okay. Newcomer Gautam Rode’s screen presence is promising. He does extremely well in stunt scenes. Cricketer Vinod Kambli’s performance is average.
Since the movie depends too much on an age-old story and clichéd formula, its prospects seem to be limited. However, the action scenes and Diwali holidays might work in its favor as far as box office collection goes.
