is a film which depicts the daily lives of police officers on
the streets of Mumbai.
film focuses on Arjun (Salman Khan), who carries out his duties
no matter what it takes.
more like he has been given a licence to kill indiscriminately rather
than to deal with the matter in an amicable way.
The story unfolds in Mumbai where corruption has taken over the
lives of many. Law and order means nothing to these people.

Police officer Hyder gets killed whilst Arjun 's family is targeted
by the underworld gangs.
has no choice but to take the law into his own hands.
has a simple storyline which has been witnessed many times in the
despite this fact, the initial half of the film is interesting because
the director has portrayed the police officers in a different light.
They are all honest in their work - a sight so rare in Bollywood
film moves at a fast space up to intermission point giving you no
time to loose your concentration. The story builds up as the police

I dare ask?
be fair, the director should not have included the romantic angle
in this movie. A romantic track dilutes the impact to the storyline.

that Garv is his first movie.
has succeeded in extracting the best out of his actors and has executed
some of scenes with great thought.
Garv excels in various departments, whether it is the dialogues

Shilpa Shetty does very well in the dance numbers whilst the rest
of the cast support well.
the whole this film should do average business in the UK cinemas.
Will prove popular with the younger generation.
