Mumbai is unsafe with gang wars rearing their ugly head. While fear is looming over the city, undercover police officers Eklavya Karmarkar ( Suniel Shetty), Naeem Sheikh (Kay Kay Menon), Eric (Johnny Lever) and Madhav (Mahaakshay) are assigned the task of salvaging the situation. They arrest the much revered underworld don Mukhtar Memon (Zakir Hussain) and put him behind bars.
Senior officer Yugantar ( Mithun Chakraborty) supervises the situation as he realizes there is more to it than meets the eye. While dissecting the root cause of the violence occurring in the city, he senses vicious motives from unexpected quarters.
Enemmy is a formulaic multi-starrer action film that manages to entertain when it comes to the depiction of raw action. The stunt scenes are well executed. It’s the plot that seems a tad archaic. While the story has the potential to keep you hooked, unnecessary characters and sub-tracks weaken the intensity of the action. Your questions are left unanswered, especially when it comes to Yugantar and his convenient sixth sense. Nonetheless, the film’s about the classic battle of good vs bad with a twist and it scores in that department.
Performances are impressive. The lead actors flaunt their aviators in style. They have good chemistry with each other too. The film marks Suniel Shetty’s comeback to action and proves why he’s still one of our best action heroes.
Kay Kay Menon is impressive as usual. Johnny Lever gets a serious role at last and he does it well. Mithun’s presence adds a lot to the film, but his character could have been written better. He also shares the screen with son Mahaakshay for the first time.
If you find old-school masala action films entertaining, Enemmy may appeal to you.
Gang wars are on the rise. A few cops are assigned the task of keeping the streets of Mumbai clean. But are the goons the only ‘Enemies’ of law and order?
