Lakshya is a much awaited release from Farhan Akhtar, the director of the famous flick, ' Dil chahta Hai'. With his second movie, he proves himself again as one of the best of the lot.

The movie deals with the growing up of a sloppy youth into a man. In that sense it has similarities to his last film which dealt with youth. The director has incorporated the protagonists transformation against the backdrop of the recent Kargil war.

Karan Shergill ( Hritik Roshan) is the son of a rich businessman (Boman Irani) who is happy to just drift along without any particular aim in life. But gradually he realises that his attitude is making people around him take him for granted. He decides to make something of himself and joins the army.
But the rigorous training in the Military Academy turns out to be too much for him and he returns home only to be admonished by his father as well as his childhood sweetheart Romi (Priety Zinta). Romi who is a self made girl reproaches his coming back and this causes a rift between the two.

Forward a number of years, they meet again at the backdrop of the India -Pak war in Kashmir- she as an accomplished television journalist and Karan now a military officer with a main aim or 'Lakshya' of winning the war for the country.

The director has told the story in a deft manner especially in the first half. The gradual transformation of Karan and his training sessions have been handled really well and has a natural feel to it. But in the second half the pace of the story slackens and drags, when the focus shifts to war. Although some of the war sequences are technically brilliant, there is no novelty as such, as the happenings are much too similar to those seen in L.O.C Kargil. The director has incorporated the romantic aspect of the lead pair between the war which gradually culminates in an appropriate climax.

On the performance front, Hritik takes the cake. He has merged with his character and done his role remarkably well. Priety Zinta is apt in her role. The strong supporting cast with veterans Amitabh Bachchan, Om Puri, Amrish Puri, Sharad Kapoor, Boman Irani and Sushant Singh pep up the movie with their fine performances.

Overall the film is slick- well shot with beautiful locales, superb dialogues and spectacular action.
