    Allah Ke Bandey is another Friday release of this week which is directed by yet another debutant director Farouque Kabir, the man who assisted director Rajiv Rai in 2001 movie Pyaar Ishq Aur Mohabbat. In this era of romance and comedy, the first time director has tried his hand on a very serious but burning topic.

    The film deals with the story of two 12-year-old boys living in the slums. They aspire to become famous in the world of crime and get involved in looting people and delivering drugs for the Mafia. However, they end up being wrongly convicted for a murder case and this reach the Juvenile Reformatory. Here, life turns hell for the duo as the senior inmates torture them with all possible cruelty and they do it with the participation and permission of the Juvenile warden.

    The free spirits of Vijay (played by Sharman Joshi) and Yakub (Faruque Kabir) are not to bow down in front of all these tortures and they grow up nursing a dream of becoming the ruler of the slums where they lived. Their criminal obsession also increases with time and they form a group of all teenage boys to fulfill their dream.

    However, every evil has its end and so they would have but their salvation comes at the cost of a high price! You need to watch the movie to know the climax. It is not a usual entertaining flick but it strikes somewhere on the hard reality.
