'Johnny Gaddaar' is a crime thriller focusing on a small section of the city's notorious nightlife. The movie introduces Neil Nitin Mukesh, the grandson of legendary singer Mukesh.

Synopsis




Five men, the eldest is 60 plus, the youngest in his 20s. This ensemble group has their fingers in various activities. The story starts with one of the gang members Seshadri (Dharmendra) getting an offer to make a fortune in four days. All the gang members are up for it as this is the deal that will catapult them into the big league.

The youngest member of the gang Vikram (Neil Nitin Mukesh) plans to disappear to some unknown city and start his own life with his love Mini when a devilish thought crosses Vikram's mind. What if he grabs the entire jackpot? Vikram's opening gambit is a neat double cross. But as he plunges further into his diabolical plan, he realizes that the stakes in this game are high. And the only losers he can afford to leave behind are dead ones.

Johnny Gaddaar is a tingling tale of crime and betrayal, love and murder.

Character Sketches

Neil Nitin Mukesh as Vikram
His taste for fast money and the fast life was first realized with the huge profits he earned by speculating on stocks with other people's money. A smart and charming young man, Vikram was unfazed when he was fired from work. Money is everything for him and he is willing to get it irrespective of the means.

Rimi Sen as Mini
A lovely girl who studied with Vikram and desperately wants him to quit the gang before it is too late. She's completely innocent and yet deep within her lies a dark secret that could shatter the group and her life forever.

Vinay Pathak as Prakash
Is a compulsive gambler which would have been alright if he wasn't in charge of running a gambling club. The Deepa social club was in dire debt and bailed out by Seshadri and Shardul and they all became partners in the club. The club attracts rich clients and on certain days the stakes run into several lakhs of rupees. Prakash is in touch with a range of underworld types. He is happily married to Varsha - a beautician, who is worried about her husband's association with the likes of Shardul.

Dharmendra as Seshadri
An ex-gangster and a gentlemen, Seshadri was a smuggler during the 70s who quit after spending some time in jail during the emergency. He loved his wife and totally lost belief in God when she died of cancer many years back. He was broken and yet he believed neither in self pity nor self abuse. He sought out some of his old contacts - men younger than him, different from him - and formed the syndicate. Seshadri is a wily and old-fashioned man who still believes in honour amongst thieves.

Zakir Hussain as Shardul
Till a few years back, he ran a successful, somewhat sleazy dance bar. But the recent government ban on such bars forced him to convert his vice palace into a chic lounge bar, catering to the rich kids from the IT and BPOs in the vicinity. Shardul's only handicap is that he has no clue about their taste in music and relies on Vikram to guide him in this venture. Hugely ambitious, he has good contacts both with the cops and the underworld. His robust and agreeable manner barely conceals his utter ruthlessness.

Shiva as Daya
A bachelor in his mid thirties, a brutal and virile chap he lives with his ailing mother. She is presently hospitalized and Shiva is worried about her health. He is from a family of wrestlers in Kolhapur and does the strong arm work for the group. He's the kind who'd never hurt a fly, unless it bothered him.

A series of events is sparked off after Vikram ditches the gang and flees with the huge amount of money.

'Johnny Gaddaar' is directed by Sriram Raghavan and has music by Shankar Ehsaan Loy.
