Rishi who plays father to a son who falls prey to extremist’s indoctrination took to the most abominating path of killings, mayhem and instilling fright. He was sucked into the black hole of terrorism.

 

At one point in the movie, the seasoned thespian says, “If you can’t discriminate between the beards of slain terror kingpin Osama-Bin-Laden and his, then it’s their problem…Aren’t I enjoy the right to profess and practice my religious chores?”

 

Rishi Kapoor immaculately fits into the role – the role of a typical middle class Muslim patriarch one finds in any Muslim locality in India.
