Movie Review: Dishkiyaoon (2014)

Box Office: Disaster

Born in the upper middle class society, Viki had no mother and his father had no time for him. The cold loneliness of Viki’s world left him weak and tainted from within. Absence of love and care pushed Viki to find acceptance in other places. One such place was just a road away from his plush apartment – THE GANGSTER – LAND.

Viki finds love and acceptance, where bullets don’t warn before firing. Interpersonal relationships are complex, situations are twisted. Ambitions break free, as Viki sets his eyes on the top-spot in gangster-land. He backs himself to de-throne the existing king. Where people use might, Viki uses his mind. A game of dice begins. Each throw unfolds deception, double-cross, uncertainty, mystery and shock. It all comes down to one final throw of dice and Viki must roll a six to win.

Given a choice between ambition and revenge, only a deadly mind would pick both. Viki picks both. Big dreams, big cost. Actions have consequences. A gun shot doesn’t discriminate, it makes the same sound for every ear – ‘DISHKIYAOON’.
