Vipul Shah's directorial debut ' Aankhen' is definitely one of the most impressive films. It is a heist thriller drama featuring Amitabh Bachchan, Akshay Kumar, Arjun Rampal, Sushmita Sen and Paresh Rawal in the lead roles. The film is an adaptation of Shah's own Gujarati play “Andhalo Pato” (Blindman's Buff).The movie released on 5 April 2002.
Vijay Singh Rajput (Amitabh Bachchan) is the manager of Vilasrao Jefferson bank. He is a person with temperamental, obsessive qualities and behaves arrogantly with a bank clerk from who is trying to rob money from his own office. So, Vijay Singh Rajput is fired from his job and he takes a revenge on the organization he worked for with a master plan and gets into execution of the plan along with the help of three blind people namely Vishwas (Akshay Kumar), a blind person who has the power of the sixth sense, Ilyaas (Paresh Rawal) and Arjun (Arjun Rampal). Neha (Sushmita Sen) is roped into helping them by blackmail (Amitabh's character kidnaps her younger brother). The movie has an unexpected climax.
Amitabh Bachchan is excellent with his top notch performance as usual. Akshay Kumar brings the required intensity to his role. Arjun Rampal has an onscreen charisma. Paresh Rawal doesn’t do the same old routine role wherein he tickled your humor bones or played the villian. He is simply amazing in this movie. Sushmita Sen does a wonderful job and you are left asking for more of her in silverscreen.
The interesting part of the flick is that it has several twista and turns that makes the audience eagerly sit at the edge of the seat to look what happens next?. The songs are a total mismatch with the story. The way it is directed is interesting and the storyline has various twists and turns that needs a mention here.
