Direction: Abhishek Kapoor
Once a boxer, always a boxer. But surely the film needed a little punch to prove this old jungle saying right. Ironically, Aryan is a completely 'thakela' film that almost puts you to sleep with its insipid ghoulash of college daze, teen pregnancy, Rambo-Rocky craze, rich-poor divide and mid-twenty's emotional haze.
Sohail Khan wants to be a fighter and dreams of ruling the ring. But his only problem is his love story which comes in the way. He becomes a husband and a dad even before he can become a star boxer. So naturally, the ring is set aside for a more sedate studio job as a sports journalist. A happy and humdrum life, he gets to sing a few songs with sweet little Sneha Ulla, who, hold your breath, is a wife and mother at 18-going-on-16.
But remember, he hasn't hung up his gloves yet. Soon it's time to test his pugilistic skills again. This time, he does it to re-discover his sagging self-esteem which seems to be threatened by something as inconsequential as a pretty, successful wife. Strange story. Strange film. Meant only for those who are imaginative enough to handle Sneha as a mom and wife.
