The Killer'The Killer' and the 'Collateral'

This Friday's release 'The Killer' is the story of a cold-blooded killer and a taxi driver who unwillingly gets stuck with him.

Check out the movie slideshow at The Killer .




Imagine Irfaan Khan stepping into Tom Cruise's suit and Emraan Hashmi playing a Jamie Foxx. No, this isn't any riddle but the fact about Mahesh Bhatt's next presentation 'The Killer', which is directed by Hasnain S Hyderabadwala and Raksha Mistry.

If you have already seen the Hollywood movie 'Collateral' (for which Jamie Foxx even got an Oscar nomination last to last year), then the story of 'The Killer' will bring déjà vu.

'The Killer' has Irfaan Khan playing Vikram, a ruthless, well suited-booted killer, who hardly bats an eyelid while pulling the trigger. One fateful night, while Vikram is on a mission to bump off a number of people, he takes a cab. The driver of this cab happens to be Nikhil (Emraan Hashmi).

Now, Nikhil is a righteous guy who earns his living the hard way, toiling round the clock to make ends meet and to save enough to ensure a secure future for himself and his girlfriend Rhea ( Nisha Kothari ).

The semblance of normalcy fades away a few moments after Vikram steps into Nikhil's cab. Nikhil soon finds himself involved in a nightmare from which he can't wake up. As Vikram begins his night of killing, Nikhil is taken along as an unwilling accomplice.

The relationship between the killer and the 'collateral' evolves into something strange. While Vikram constantly threatens Nikhil, he also saves his life when danger comes.

Nikhil's patience begins to wear off as Vikram goes about gunning down people. But when Nikhil comes to know that his girlfriend is one of the targets, he decides to take on the killer.

The movie's story is set over the course of one night in Dubai.

The astonishing similarity between the stories of 'The Killer' and 'Collateral' cannot be a coincidence. The bitter truth is that the Bollywood copycat mindset is at work once again.

'The Killer' is a Mukesh Bhatt film with music by Sajid Wajid.

The film will hit the theatres on July 21, 2006.
