Taran Adarsh, Bollywood Hungama
Jaswant Sisodiya (Manoj Bajpai) is the uncrowned king of Bijnor, a crime ridden area in UP. Here, murders go unpunished, lands are usurped and women are treated like commodities. We have seen this in many movies earlier, Lanka seems like just another exte

Lanka movie reviewManoj at his bestLanka. The title may mislead you. But it is not about the ethnic strife in neighbouring nation. It is a power-pcked drama with Manoj Bajpai at his best. Directed by  Maqbool Khan, it is interesting and engrossing. Tia Ba

Suresh Gopi is definitely a crowd puller. He has proved himself to this status, even after a long period of silence. But he is also an acor whose films don't consistently run, not withstanding weak plots. The makers of lanka could have taken this into account before they jumped off to greater locations, with weaker scripts. Unfortunately, his regained crowd pulling charisma is not put to proper use in the film.

Ever since the promotion of 'Lanka' kickstarted, there has been an emphasis on how the 'Seeta' abduction episode from 'Ramayana' has been taken and presented in today's times. In fact the film was even titled as 'Vibhishan' for a while before 'Lanka' was finalised and one expected that there would be some dramatic quotient to the film that would justify the adage of 'Ghar Ka Bhedi Lanka Dhaae'. Sadly though there is hardly any Lanka here while the Vibhishan factor too hardly comes across as convincing enough that would make one remember the mythological tale and draw references.

Lanka doesn't work for its story but for the performances especially that of Manoj Bajpayee
