Ram Gopal Verma true to his reputation  delivers sheer magic on the celluloid with "Company'-a story about the rise and fall of a mafia empire. A movie to remembered for every person associated with Mumbai and its underworld connections. A story that has been finely lifted not from any other film but lifted straight from the under world streets of Mumbai. The movie infact goes beyond Mumbai to Bangkok and Nairobi where the gangsters create a much bigger empire than in Mumbai and as  mentioned in the fillm, the  'Telephone' becomes their greatest weapon.

The story is about two friends Malik (Ajay Devgan) and Chandu (Vivek Oberoi).Malik is a trusted lieutenant of an underworld don. He recruits Chandu in the gang when the activities begin to expand. Differences between Malik and his colleagues surface when Malik starts siding Chandu.

Malik decides to take the reins in his hands and together with Chandu, starts running the 'company'. Later, they shift base to Hong Kong and start remote controlling their men from this foreign land.

But a misunderstanding turns the two friends into foes. In a bid to achieve supremacy, they decide to eliminate the other. Malik stays in Hong Kong with his close associates (Manisha Koirala, Ganesh Yadav, Rajpal Yadav), while Chandu shifts to Nairobi. Thus the first half ends and then the second half is all about the fall of the 'Company'.

The highlight of the movie is Ajay Devgan who is superb all the way. His style,his looks and his acting is seen to be believed. This is indeed going to be his best movie. Devgan in this serious role seems to have come of age and has delivered a lifetime performance. Vivek Oberoi is another highlight of the movie. Even though this is his first movie, it appears that he is a veteran in this field. Has handled his rough character to perfection.

Sandeep Chowta's background music is fantastic and his music infact haunts even after you have left the theatre. A major surprise of the movie is that except of the 'Khallas' song there are no songs in the full length movie.

Ram Gopal Verma deserves a pat for his wonderful execution of the life and times of the underworld dons on the silver screen. Company is his best product ever and hats off to Verma for this wonderful film.
