    The plot of Aurangzeb is inevitably too complicated, and the themes presented more interestingly than they are wrapped up. But for much of the nearly two-and-a-half-hour running time, it ably weaves Bollywood tropes...with contemporary outrage at the rules of the game.

    Aurangzeb is primarily about inheritance of character from parent to child. And the opening underlines this theme with a quote from Roman poetAurangzeb is primarily about inheritance of character from parent to child. And the opening underlines this theme with a quote from Roman poet Horace, ‘Deep in the cavern of the infant’s breast; the father’s nature lurks, and lives anew.’ Aurangzeb is a tight political drama that uses the nexus between cops and real estate mafia to weave a tale of deceit, treachery, double crossing and revenge. Set in Gurgaon the story revolves around the cat and mouse game between Yashwardhan Singh (Jackie Shroff) and the police force lead by Rishi Kapoor and Prithviraj. Arjun Kapoor plays the double role of twin brothers Vishal and Ajay who lead different lives because of the circumstances that separated them. However, you have to be patient with Aurangzeb as it takes a while before the storyline actually starts moving. The first half is strong, but the climax and focus on the family ties and relationship dilutes the hardcore gangster flick that it set out to be. Dialogues are sharp, but scenes between Arjun and his mother, or his relationship with Jackie are lengthy and ramble on beyond a point. Also, Sabharwal gives away too much too soon making the climax fall flat. Watch Aurangzeb for some stellar performances lead by Arjun Kapoor and a solid supporting cast. It's a damn hardcore flick.
