From Sanjay Gadhvi, the master directors of mega blockbusters like Dhoom and Dhoom: 2, Kidnap is a high octane edge of the seat drama about a power tussle between a young boy and the father of the girl he kidnaps.
Sonia (Minissha Lamba - Bachna Ae Haseeno) lives with her mother, Mallika (Vidya Malvade - Chak Dey India) and grandmother because her parents divorced when she was ten. A week before her eighteenth birthday celebration, she gets kidnapped.
The abductor, Kabir (Imran Khan - Jaane... Tu Ya Jaane Na) is interested in speaking only to her father, Vikrant Raina (Sanjay Dutt), an affluent New York based Indian businessman, with whom he has an old score to settle.
Vikrant returns to India to retrieve his daughter from Kabir's clutches but has to carry out a series of daunting tasks set out by Kabir as a condition to rescue her. At the end of each task is a clue that helps Vikrant in coming closer to Sonia.
Is his mission as easy as it seems? How far will a father go to save his daughter? What redemption is there for Kabir at the end?
Sanjay Dutt's first release of 2008, co starring the latest teen sensation, Imran Khan, Kidnap makes for compelling viewing as the big festival release on Eid. It features music by Pritam.
