Aurangzeb Movie Review

Aurangzeb (U/A)

Length: - 2 hrs. 15 min.

Aurangzeb is a film about Real Estate Empire in Gurgaon and cop's unique way to control it. Film’s dialogues are unique but not engaging. Story line of the film is not much refined in terms of the content. It’s neither dragging nor engaging drama, which has too much to say but not able to deliver it with perfection. Also, fails to convey its message properly.

Aurangzeb is a story about Yashwardhan (Jackie Shroff) who runs an empire of Real Estate in Gurgaon. After him there are many who want to take over his business. One of them is his son, Ajay (Arjun Kapoor). Yashwardhan is unaware of the fact that his second son Vishal (Arjun Kapoor) and his wife are alive. DCP Ravikant (Rishi Kapoor) takes the advantage of this & interchanges his son, in order to get information about Yashwardhan. After that what follows next are double cross, unobvious storytelling and brutal reality of India.

Rishi Kapoor is superb in his performance; he manages to get attention more than the lead star of the film Arjun Kapoor. Arjun Kapoor also looks mature in just his second film. Sasha Agha looks charming but not good in acting.

Aurangzeb is the Gangster thriller which works more on the empire ownership and less on the violence. At times being predictable it also wants to connect you to the story of Aurangzeb in the modern scenario. But, the content has very little to say about that. Apart from the kingship, Aurangzeb also has a family track through which it wants to convey the message.

Verdict: - Aurangzeb has lot say but because its confusing screenplay  it does not work out. Overall, falls short of expectations.

Ratings: -    2.5 / 5 Stars


  1. well the guy doing Arya the Mallyali actor i suppose has been completely forgotten in the review Gaurav !! I think the story was shown through his eyes .. I would not question your perception as ofcourse you have your say but I quite liked the movie coz things were looking lost and yet in place .. and kept me hooked to my seat till the end.

    Rishi was indeed superb !! Arjun was good .. Sasha was disappointing .. the story was good !
    3.5 out of 5 is my marking ! :)

    1. Ya I forget to mention ACP Arya's character.....his character was also powerful and he played it well.You are right...... everybody has its own perception about the film. I am glad u liked the film. Sasha was mentioned in my review.Thanx for sharing ur opinion btw.

  2. Thanks a lot for the review. Concept of this movie seems to be very similar to the story-line of the movies made in 80s and 90s where family members get separated at the start of the film and this is followed by twisrs and turns. Arjun Kapoor did well in his debut movie, Ishaqzaade its good to know that he has done justice to his role in this movie too. Rishi Kapoor has always been a great actor, its just that he was reluctant to do serious roles in the past for whatever reasons. He is doing great in his second innings. Anyways this movie looked ok in promos, i guess the execution is not so good like you mentioned in the review.

    1. I am happy that u liked my review.Ya Arjun Kapoor is getting better with time.Rishi Kapoor as u said is a great actor and he has done even better in the recent films. Ya, i didn't like the execution.
