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.
