A strong message
5 October 2018 | by monikamoitraSee all my reviews

Naam tells the story of Vicky Kapoor, in words of Ravi Kapoor (Vicky's brother). The story is a strong message to all those who dream of settling abroad & about the kinds of problems they can encounter once they land into a foreign country. Naam tells the story of Vicky Kapoor who falls prey into the trap of some highly potential people. The story runs in a flashback manner in words of Ravi Kapoor (Vicky's brother) who did everything possible in order to save his brother. Ravi is the only breadwinner of his family since childhood and does everything to make the ends meet. He is often harassed at his workplace but tolerates everything just to keep up his job. On the other hand, Vicky, a good for nothing lad does everything to get funds for moving out of India. One evening Ravi gets fired from his job and is offered another job by Seema. Vicky is again caught gambling and losing money. As Ravi comes to cover up Vicky's mistake, they get caught up by Janaki and this is when she reveals to them that Ravi is her step son. Upon hearing this, Vicky feels very guilty and strongly requests Ravi to send him out of India so that he can repay his debt. Ravi arranges for the funds. Vicky then flies to Dubai where he falls prey in trap of Rana. He tries his level best to get out but all in vain & gets convicted for his crime. Ravi then somehow manages to make Vicky elope for India but the police shoots Vicky while eloping. Vicky dies leaving Ravi and Rita shattered and they return to India. Rita dies while delivering Vicky's child. The film ends with Ravi along with Seema, giving Vicky's child to Janaki saying that he is handing over her son back to her. Superb acting done by Kumar Gaurav, Sanjay Dutt and Nutan. A very pathetic ending done to the movie. A good film indeed.
