Mediocrity is personified in the Keshu Ramsey-produced Insan.The movie, directed by K Subhash, is replete with all possible Bollywood clichÃ©s â€“ rich girl-poor guy romance, terrorism, a patriotic cop, a wayward youngster who turns jehadi andâ€¦The list goes on.The writer of this movie has stuffed the story with so many ingredients that Insan becomes more like a donkey carrying a heavy load.What is more surprising is that actors like Akshay Kumar and Ajay Devgan chose to be a part of this film.And they are the only ones who make this movie tolerable.
Cast: Akshay Kumar, Ajay Devgan, Lara Dutta

And then there is Meghna (Lara Dutta), the spunky woman who runs Karate classes in Amjadâ€™s neighborhood.Ajit comes in touch with Meghna and the two are drawn towards each other. But they never express their love to each other.Drama builds up after Azhar takes hostage the passengers of a train and demands the release of his leader Masood.It is then our heroes â€“ Amjad and Ajit â€“ join hands to fight the forces of evil.
