The year is 1981 and tax officer Amay Patnaik (Ajay Devgn) has been promoted to work in a government office in Lucknow and the target of the job is Rameshwar Singh (Saurabh Shukla), a local stronghold who goes by ‘Rajaji’. But when Patnaik and his team file into Singh’s ‘White House’ to conduct the raid, the head of the household threatens them of the consequences of this pursuit.
Director Raj Kumar Gupta is credited for films such as Aamir and No One Killed Jessica — now slotted under ‘content-driven films’. It is a genre that dilutes the need for a glowing cast or constructed bells and whistles.If you walk into this one expecting a tight thriller, it may not work as one. But it’s surely a grade above most Ajay Devgn films. It doesn’t entirely capture your imagination but doesn’t rob you of your better sense either.
