This film details about how normal Police officer son Jaidev becomes Chengiz-a criminal. From match fixing, drug racket, horce racing, or Killing, Chengiz does everything. Now, Chengiz has become a tension to whole police department in Calcutta. Will, Chengiz being nabbed by Police with proof or Chengiz will rule the whole Calcutta is what this story is all about.

Bollywood Crazies Opinion: The story of this film has been well written by the makers and has been presented decently for public. Jeet swag and style as Chengiz is really something to look forward. As I watched the Hindi dubbing of this film which is not at all perfect. The dubbing could have been better. The songs are good and takes the story forward. Susmita has only few minutes role in this film and the movie is totally based around Chengiz. The background music adds value to this film. The production value is good and the whole setup of Calcutta will surely make you nostalgic. It is not easily to make a film on this scale in West Bengal film industry, still Jeet has done a good attempt here. Director Rajesh Ganguly has given his heart and soul to this film and he somehow give justice to it. The first half is more engaging as compare to the second half. The plot has many twist and turns which makes this movie engaging. Hindi audience has seen such films in the past too, so the excitement in Hindi market might be missing. Its good that AA films by Anil Thadani has distributed this film in Hindi market. Talking about performances, Jeet and Rohit surprises.
Chengiz movie story, screenplay and direction done by Rajesh Ganguly. This film has been co-written by Neeraj Pandey. The cinematography has been done by Manas Ganguly and the editing work done by Malay Laha. The musical score have been given by Kaushik Guddu and Aneek Dhar.
Altogether, Chengiz is surely a one time watch film in theaters.
Chengiz movie budget hasn’t been revealed yet but it could reportedly around 5 to 6 crores maximum.
Last Word: Watch it for Jeet, Rohit Roy and underworld story.
Bollywood Crazies Ratings: Chengiz Review-3 stars out ot 5 stars.
