BRB, gotta do an item number....

If you've seen the Denzel Washington movie, Man on Fire, then you've seen Ek Ajnabee. Literally. It's a remake, this time set in Bangkok instead of Mexico City. Amitabh Bachchan takes on the Denzel role as a burned out ex-soldier of fortune who gets hired as a bodyguard for an adorable little girl. Of course, the cute tot wins his gruff heart, and soon he's coaching her on how to burp her way out of piano lessons.

BUT! Then she gets kidnapped, and all hell breaks loose. Amitabh is now cleared for a pretty cool Roaring Rampage of Revenge (there will be fingers snipped and asses blown out), and, if you recall the American movie, it turns out to be a tangled web, wherein almost everyone in the picture save the teddy bear turns out to be in on a giant-sized conspiracy.

Oh, and WTF Arjun Rampal? He's Amitabh's ridiculously good looking ex-army buddy who was tossed in partly, one suspects, to dance in the sexy item song. He also kicks the spit out of some bad guys in a cool (if ridiculous) scene set to "Kung Fu Fighting."

Also also, this one has a slightly dumb twist near the end, and then, unlike the American film, a pretty cute ending. I found it pretty absorbing and well-acted (as I've said before, I'd watch Big B read the Bombay telephone directory, but even the kid actor was good), and I'd seen MIF before. Even the picky husband suffered to watch it for a few minutes.
