After a wealthy businessman’s daughter is kidnapped, he jumps through the kidnapper’s hoops to get her back. The melodramatic story is entertaining at first, until the tasks assigned by the kidnapper  (e.g., robberies, jailbreaks, and murders) become increasingly unrealistic and tedious. Kidnap also ends on a morally unfathomable note. Still, there’s something satisfying about seeing paunchy 49-year-old Sanjay Dutt (as the businessman) nimbly running, jumping, and motorcycling like a man half his age.

No Rating (violence); 149 minutes
