Wanted (2009)

Well before the release of Wanted, the movie’s strong and evenly loud promotions made it abundantly clear what to expect from it - action bent towards exaggeration and characters that are wild caricatures. In this, the movie does not disappoint. For those averse to its lead star, Salman Khan, or "Bollywood Masala" movies, Wanted can be punishing. Fans can rejoice though, as Salman Khan possibly delivers the most heroic performance of his career yet, molded firmly within escapist cinema.
